    One thought on “The Short and Bloody History of Knights, Spies, and Pirates”

    1. I read this a while back and am re reading it, but it s the BEST ever Barnes and Noble bargain book I ve bought Short and sweet, funny and entertaining AND informative Written for kids but just as delightful for a 20 something casual history buff lover Enjoy it I highly recommend it

    2. This book is short, fun and quirky all at the same time It s a pretty quick read, and even though the facts aren t very very detailed, it still gives you good information, and it puts it in a way that makes you want to keep reading My favorite part was the pirates part, because it busted some of the stereotypes that have been put on pirates, including the rum and the girls First, there was absolutely no girls allowed on the ship If you were caught with a girl on deck you would get a severe punis [...]

    3. The writing style was a bit too colloquial for my tastes, but it was still a good read The best parts were the detailing of individual s lives, especially the sections on women spies and pirates The facts all seemed accurate, but who am I to know if they were or not This would be a fun read for any kid looking to know than the popular depictions, and will hopefully inspire them to learn about the stories that stick in their head for days after.

    4. These hilarious chapters make history fascinating This book presents well researched facts in a voice that appeals to a 12 year old While I personally love this book, and will re read parts of it just for fun, I have not been so successful getting kids to read it

    5. This was originally 3 separate books, but are here combined into one volume Another group of short histories I like these kinds of things, because they give you a good overview of history, and they make me interested in history the way my favorite history teacher did.

    6. Clever and entertaining, with a delightfully mischievous tone Not all that thorough, but it doesn t claim to be.

    7. Lively and brief I ve been trying to figure out why Farman included spies in this survey, but at least the material fits as written.
