    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.

    Overall

    I loved this book - not only as a history of the English language but of England and the British Empire. And it shows how closely tied we are to our past - even in our choice of words. The narrator did a great job - although there were some glaring mispronunciations of a few Australian words.
