History of England in 100 Places: From Stonehenge to the Gherkin - John Julius Norwich Very disappointed in the book. The author's writing is amateurish, or he is trying too hard to come down to the level he suspects his readers to be on. He does a lot of supposing. Maybe this happened, maybe that happened, or it could have even been this way. I think if you are that unsure, you should admit it, delete it, or write about something you know. It was just all too much. Not only did I find the writing difficult, but I found little new information included. That may not be his fault, as I have always done a lot of reading about England's history, as well as exploring for myself. This book could be okay for those who don't have much knowledge on the subject, but it wasn't the book for me.
