There’s nothing necessarily wrong with this book, it’s just that the Aztecs themselves aren’t necessarily one of my favourite historical civilizations. Still, I enjoyed learning what Deary had to share on the subject and it was boosted as ever by the illustrations from Martin Brown.
Perhaps it’s because of my relative lack of interest in the subject matter, but I also didn’t get on too well with the little quizzes that were dotted throughout. It was kind of annoying to have to flick backwards and forwards all of the time when I would have preferred to have just been presented with the information. But then, I’m not exactly the target audience. Still, I’m glad that I picked this up and I think I learned something.
