Reviews

Praise for A History of France An Amazon Best Book of the Month

"[Norwich] remembered that there was a public composed of people who read books of history for pleasure, not from duty . . . [A History of France is] a delightful book--engaging, enthusiastic, sympathetic, funny and sometimes, one has to add, quirky."--Wall Street Journal

"The major achievement of this book is the very fact that Norwich takes each of the four rulers to be a piece of the same story . . . written with often humming literary verve."--New York Times Book Review

"With characteristic deftness of touch, Norwich brings each character vividly to life and skillfully weaves their stories together . . . a genuinely inspired idea for a book, and Norwich executes it with typical aplomb." Tracy Borman, BBC History Magazine

"Norwich's long career as a historian has given him a definite assurance of style, which allows him to present historical detail in a thoroughly engaging manner without sacrificing clarity." Library Journal

"A streamlined, merry romp through glorious Gaul."--Washington Independent Review of Books

"Norwich's strength is the colorful anecdote . . . [and A History of France is] informative and entertaining."--Publishers Weekly
