  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    Robin Hood is probably the most legendary and well known character in the world. His exploits have been seen across the world in books, films, TV shows and even computer games. But what is the truth about this enigmatic man? Russell Crowe plays the fictional movie character expertly but the REAL Robin Hood is far more exciting than any fantastical Hollywood Film.

    The information in this book was inviting and interesting, albeit a little sparce and strangely organized, but the musical soundtrack......absolutely horrendous!!!
    Annoying, overly loud, stupidly edited, irritating, endless and like being poked with a sharp stick!!
    What were the editors thinking?????
    Skip this one unless you prefer listening to inane and overly self-inportant pseudo medieval musical clap-trap while trying to read.

Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.
