Very interesting review of British history, sorted by reigns rather than events and people. Strictly a political history, little about social, religious or artistic history.
The best of the bunch is "Autopsy Room Four," which is so creepy you'll never watch CSI again without thinking about this. Oliver Platt does a great job in reading this. The other stories are OK, but not as memorable as this one.
... just enjoy her elegant writing. P.D. James is eloquent in describing the brooding poet, Detective Adam Dalgliesh as he tries to discover who murdered an Anglican seminarian. At some point everyone is a suspect (which must be a requirement in English murder mysteries).
... I shook the bed and woke my husband! If you need a giggle download this book! The story of a couch-potato writer who decided to "discover" America by hiking the Appalachian Trail. I've got all the other Bryson books on my audible wish list.
Interesting story, but wish I'd waited for the unabridged version to become available. Inspiring story of genius and the friendships that nourished it. If you like this you might want to read audible's "The Professor and the Madman" by Simon Winchester, another story about a mad genius.
