The Customs of Old England

by F.J. Snell

There's some pretty interesting information in this book but it often goes into a tedious level of detail that suffocates an otherwise interesting topic. If you can't read Latin you're also out of luck because the lengthy Latin quotations aren't translated. Despite all that there's some genuinely interesting information for the determined reader.

The Island of Doctor Moreau

by H.G. Wells

Creepy and macabre, a great story.

The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World from Marathon to Waterloo

by Edward Creasy

Great book! It explains the background to each battle well and explains the consequences too. You're left in no doubt that these battles really did change the course of history and it's that aspect the book dwells on rather than a blow by blow account of how the battles went. If you like history I'd highly recommend this book.

History of the World War

by Richard J. Beamish

History, Winston Churchill observed, is written by the victors. Rarely though has history been written so badly and with such obvious and laughable bias.
