review É eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB º Ben Hubbard

I had purchased this book as I wanted to find out about the history of Paris, a city which I've been visiting frequently for work. I didn't want an A to Z on Paris, or a directory of where the famous sites are. I wanted a different look at the city, which must have seen so many tragedies of the peoples who lived within.I found what I was looking for in Mr Hubbard's 'Bloody history of Paris'. The book is extremely engaging, from start to finish. It's detailed and informative, written in a clear style without fake sensationalism, with plenty of pictures and descriptions. Some chapters I've read in one sitting, the others I've gone back to a few times after I visited the site in 'real' life. There are some really gruesome descriptions and interesting facts of the reign of terror or the sieges of Paris, as well as an objective overview of the recent bloody history (WWII, the Algerian Springthe Bataclan attacks). I've gone to see the site of the Commune at Pere Lachaise Cemetery (something I wouldn't think of doing previously) and I've read the chapter on Versailles before going there. I can't fault the accuracy of the information and I am very impressed by the fresh style of writing. We need books like this one digestible factual information, in a clear, digestible style. I am looking up other books in this series and definitely checking out other books written by the author. Five stars! Bloody History of Paris: Riots, Revolution and Rat Pie (Bloody Histories) (English Edition) eBook : Hubbard, Ben Driven by a vision that is savage, brutal and relentless, this book reflects exactly the origin of Parisian behavior. With inspiration, jagged lyricism, the writer describes the brutal history with unsparing color while connecting the dots in the path of historical events. Such an addictive read!
