The Peasants Revolting…Lives written by Terry Deary and published by Pen and Sword Books. Softcover – £12.99 – 165 Pages.

I should say that I have always been a big fan of Terry Deary and the Horrible Histories books, this series is a series aimed at adults, so it’s a little bit more serious and less aimed at the kids market. I should say that I have already read the previous book about crime and this is in a similar manner in that it looks at how the peasants handle/deal with their lives. All the chapters are divided up well which makes the book easy to dip in and out of. I think it’s much better this series that it focuses on the normal poor people as most of history is usually written about rulers, kings and queens. The book is a mixture of facts, information and humour and makes for an ideal mix. This has been a brilliant book to read and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for others to read, I’m so glad that I was given the chance to review as I adore Terry Deary and his books.

Hello, I have been studying all aspects of history for about 25 years. I have a BA History from the University of Bedfordshire. My historical areas of interest are anything really, but I specialise in 19th - 20th century Britain, America and Ireland. I am also strongly aligned with most military history, really enjoying WW2 and the US Civil War. Chuck in the king or queen and Bob's your uncle.
