I’ve never been particularly interested in the Georgians for some reason, but I did get some enjoyment out of the book anyway purely because it’s a Horrible Histories book and that’s kind of to be expected.
My only criticisms would really be the same criticisms that I level at every Horrible Histories book. It’s kind of annoying to have to keep flicking backwards and forwards to see what the answers are to the little quizzes, and sometimes the humour gets in the way of the information itself. It’s a shame when that happens because it finally got me interested in a historical period that’s always passed me by. But at least I feel like I’ve learned something, which I suppose is the point. Go figure.
