From 55 BC to AD 1945, An Utterly Impartial History of Britain informs, explains, but most of all laughs at the seemingly incomprehensible rollercoaster of events that make up the story of Great Britain.
Packed with great characters trapped in impossible dilemmas, this true-life drama will have you on the edge of your seat, thinking "I wonder which of them dies at the end?" (Well, they all do obviously. It was ages ago.) As entertaining as a witch burning and a lot more laughs.

Bordering on seditious; very enjoyable.
If only there was a book like this when I did history I may have taken note. Many a true word spoken in jest and despite some wonderfully funny observations there is a subtext of tragedy at mans ineptitude. Can?t rate it highly enough.

Wheres the unabidged version
Would you consider the audio edition of An Utterly Impartial History of Britain to be better than the print version?
No unfortunately the abridged version is like star wars without stars or even wars.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the quirky narrative that will make you laugh time and time again.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I think the author narrating the book is perfect and should be standard with exeptions obviously. EG phillip carlos, may he rest in peace.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Do you like history? do you want to be interested in history but cant stick that boring man/woman trying to make it fun but failing constantly? this is the new beginning
Any additional comments?
awesome book and narrative just too damn short
