    "detailed but never dull"

    Antonia Fraser writes with a superb command of the period, and adds richness and texture with detail that never distracts. In short, she draws the many threads of this complex story together beautifully, with empathy and freshness.

    Story
    "Another solid history from Antonia Fraser"
    What did you like most about The Gunpowder Plot?

    As always, Fraser managed to deal with an incendiary piece of history in a fair and balanced way. I've definitely filled a big gap in my knowledge of UK history, which is good.

    Also, I'm going to have to see what else has been done by the narrator, because I was easily listening to it on 2x speed without it sounding strange.
