    Refreshes the parts other history books can’t reach...A bit ropy on the Renaissance? In the dark about the Enlightenment? Or, in fact, do you need a revision course on the entire history of the world and want to read a witty, irreverent, definitely not boring romp through everything that has ever happened on planet earth – from 15 billion years BC to the present day? Good.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Less Boring History of the World the most enjoyable?

    Truly enjoyable narrative of world history that provides a nutshell view of why we are where we are today. I appreciated the irony and satire provided by the author, he did a great job throwing in subtle and smart jokes into what is, after all, a book about history. Great listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Less Boring History of the World?

    The great thing about history is that it is all memorable and interesting... I enjoyed his accounts of the Greeks and of the World Wars.


    What does Miles Jupp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The British accent, just makes it all more genuine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, a few small chuckles here and there, but nothing crazy.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy history, but can't be bothered by dates and other boring facts, give this book a whirl.
