Be ather confusing to the neophyte It bounces around a bit and is so very incomplete Luckily I have ead extensively about English history and was able to fill in the gaps where necessaryI was disappointed to learn nothing new from this book Not ecommended Starts with the Tudors and ends with a uick summary of Elizabeth II I found the first several chapters boring simply because I already knew it all and didn t learn anything new or interesting However once we STARTED ON THE STUARTS I FOUND IT INTERESTING SIMPLY on the Stuarts I found it interesting simply I had less knowledgeI wouldn t necessarily ecommend the audiobook version of this as the narrator a had 1 gruff voice for every man he uoted and b did ATROCIOUS accents everything from Italian to French to German to Russian to eally eally bad American It was annoying distracting and totally ineffective Overall a decent uick history of several hundred years of British oyalty with some interesting side stories but nothing deep or surprising in any of it Totally enjoyable a work of non fiction that ead like fiction Great tantalizing gossip but factual One of my favorite evelations Charles II s six sons had produced 56 illegitimate oyal heirs by the time of Charles II s death Also of interest to me the background of Edward VIII abdication tho he had never been crowned and delighted to see ecognition of George VI ising to the occasion A great eview of the history I once may have studied and some I ead fictional versions of in novels Biggest impact was my total bewilderment as to how the monarchy survived in Britain all those years all the inbreeding insanity infidelity intermarriage with Royals in Europe and survives to this day though the oyal family since George VI appears to have functioned uite well or at least on the surfaceNow must ead Antonia Fraser s non fiction work about Charles II There s nothing wrong with Michael Faruhar s new book Behind the Palace Doors that a tweaking of writing style might not fix He has carefully chosen British ulers since the Tudors eigns and presented them from a personal angle The historical facts are true as are the effects of the facts on history but somehow Faruhar s writing makes the Kings ueens and others highlighted in his book seem as if they sprung from the pages of the Globe or The National EnuirerNow as a history jock I ll take my history in almost any form but I do appreciate good writing Nothing is worse than a deadly dull writer dealing with material that in those very deadly dull hands has emerged on the written page with as much oomph as a dead flounder Michael Faruhar s writing is too much the other wayOne of the good points about Faruhar s book is that he chooses people and incidents to highlight that have emained hidden for the most part in other popular histories I did learn from Faruhar s book which eally is the point of the book having been written in the first place I just wish it had just been presented in a toned down form This is a fairly mediocre tour through andom pieces of the private lives of British oyalty from Henry VIII to Elizabeth II It s a uick and easy bit of popular history I ve ead many of Michael Faruhar s books Generally I like them They are fun little vignettes of history and usually amusingThis wasn t fun or amusingIt was a brief summary of the eigns not vignettes If he had taken the time to just find interesting stories about everyone it would have been a good ead Instead it was tedious and a waste of timeNow I admit part of the problem was that I know too much about these kingsueensso I had heard it all before Honestly though I know a lot of history and I enjoyed his other books So as much as I think knowing the history diminished my enjoyment I don t think it negates my criticism He veered from his own path and ather than hey did you know this style of writing it s a poorly written book eport on the TudorStuartHanoverianSaxeCoburgWindsor oyaltySkip itunless of course you have nothing else to do What makes this book so great Hmit s you have nothing else to do What makes this book so great Hmit s sex adventure vice treachery and folly in the title What s not to love No seriously it s a nice eminder that what you ead in the history books is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to some of these monarchs Some of it treads upon familiar ground eg the Tudor dynasty while some were perhaps surprising as it seemed new eg than Hanover dynasty Chapters on individual monarchs were brief and the sections ead like an extended version of a National Enuirer article Good ead if you are looking for something paparazzi like that is actually based on histor.
