    1. I thought a few episodes of the TV show were amazing years ago, so when I saw the whole series of books at a used book store in Bulgaria, I decided to start with the Saxons, it being right up the writer's alley and all. Not impressive. It seems to be a pointless melange of odd or out-of-the-ordinary laws and practices, treated as Saxon habit for 650 years or more. There is a Victorian's fascination with oddities, which I share myself, but not even the oddities were especially noteworthy. It does [...]


    2. As a child history was one of my favourite school subjects thus making Horrible Histories the perfect books for me.Nowadays children have the television series yet I belong to the older group that had the books. Personally, I believe any child who has an interest in history should give these books a go. They’re truly gripping and so many topics are covered. Honestly, Horrible Histories are well worth a read.


    3. Don't judge the book by its cover! The stories are funny yet "horrible" making it easy to remember these interesting facts.


    4. An interesting addition to the series.The history is sometimes doubtful but the humour is as good as any in the series.


    5. An entertaining story of the unfortunate events following the departure of the Romans from Britain in 410. Meet the Saxons, first Christians, the Vikings, the Saxons again, The Vikings again, The Saxons once more than the Normans in 1066. It was a savage time if it were not for the monk Bede who is the guy behind English history and in fact behind the practice of working time out from the date of the birth of Jesus. And then there is the Saxon language, which we also call today the English langu [...]


    6. I am Upset with Terry Deary, but the Horrible Histories still rock. This one seems a mite over-specified, but it's still good. 2015 review:Okay let's talk about the Horrible Histories.You may be aware of them as a TV show, which I highly, highly recommend, but you may not be aware that they are also books! Which I also recommend!It's hard to talk about the Horrible Histories specifically. They're hysterical short nonfiction books consisting of maybe 120 pages tops? Aimed at children, they set ou [...]


    7. Since 8th grade I’ve had a love affair with Terry Deary’s HORRIBLE HISTORIES series. They are a great way to teach kids (or anybody, really) about European history. It offers realism cloaked hilariously in jokes so bad they’re good (and it’s deliberate, too. There’s no way jokes that bad cannot be on purpose :P )The SMASHING SAXONS is a new entry into the series and highlights some of the known history about Saxon England and all the goings-on in those times, smattered here and there w [...]


    8. I subscribed to the series after watching an advert online, and read them as soon as they arrived, and couldn't wait for the next one to come out! They give such great facts about each time period and even on periods I knew about, the magazines contained information I had never heard before.I liked learning about the saxons and the battles they had against the vikings and the romans. I also enjoyed seeing their 'home-life' and how they lived in England so many years ago.This one didn't seem to h [...]


    9. The Smashing Saxons is good but not great, one of the lesser Horrible Histories books and certainly one of the easiest to overlook. It's still a good read, and great for teaching kids about history, but The Vicious Vikings and The Rotten Romans blow it out of the water for entertainment value.Still, the cartoons are fantastic and Terry Deary always leaves a bit of his personality behind in the books that he writes, and when you consider you can pick up a used copy online for a couple of quid plu [...]


    10. Once in a blue moon I like to pick up HH books and re-educate myself. Strangely enough I always remember the books better than my history classes.Terry Deary writing is funny and to the point. He tells all the nasty bits history books left out and always makes me laugh with his jokes, even though I'm not a teenager any more.Even so HH are a good source of fun and knowledge and if you like history you'll probably love these books.


    11. Interesting read. I do like how this series brings history alive to kids. Really personalizes history and makes it accessible. Enjoyed the jokes, puns, and quizzes. It was interesting to read another take on Alfred.





    12. Gotta love Terry Deary, and Martin Brown's cartoons.And this one's a must read for anyone connected with Regia Anglorum.
