Read Through History October 2015
Happy Halloween Everyone!
So, what horrors has everyone had this year? What books/films have people been watching? I can recommend some of the offerings from BBC Radio.
Anyhow, while you await your Appointments With Fear, here are some treats for you.
1) The Great Siege by William Napier. Really good novel about the Siege of Malta in 1565. If you like Zulu you might like this.
2) Freedom’s Pilgrim by Edward James. Much of this is set in Mexico shortly after the Spanish Conquest. If you want to find out about how the Aztecs fared have a read of this.
3) A Small Hand by Susan Hill. I listened to the audiobook of this novel and this is a very good tale from the writer of The Woman in Black.
4) The Rik Mayall: Bigger than Hitler, Better than Christ. The very funny autobiography of the actor who tragically died last year.
So, enjoy the rest of Halloween and don’t have nightmares…
