Editorial Reviews

Review

“An exhilarating experience. Readers will come away from this book with an appreciation of how and why the cataclysmic events of seventeenth century England shaped world history for the next two centuries.” ―NPR.org

“Appropriately detailed, beautifully written story of the Stuarts' rise and fall - will leave readers clamoring for the further adventures awaiting England in the 18th century.” ―Kirkus (starred review)

“Ackroyd is a wonderful storyteller, and he has a wonderful and vitally important story to tell... providing excellent insights into the character and motivations of several of the prime movers of events... He eloquently describes the development of literature, the ongoing religious controversies, and the evolving political sympathies and their effects on the lives and opinions of ordinary citizens.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“The depth and scope of Ackroyd's account is impressive, and it is as accessible as it is rich” ―Publishers Weekly

“In the same vein as the previous two volumes, Rebellion does more than lay out the facts of history. Spliced between the chapters that move the chronological history forward are vignettes on daily life in 17th-century England, covering the theatres, literature, politics and economics, and the emerging popular press, as well as contemporary analysis of historical events. This is a fascinating look at life in England during tumultuous times.” ―Shelf Awareness

“Peter Ackroyd is energetic and gifted enough to have mastered his sources and produced a sparklingly fresh account of Tudor England. . . . Ackroyd has a wonderful eye for the telling detail, cameos that stick in the mind.” ―The Weekly Standard on Tudors

“Peter Ackroyd's love of his subject shines through every page. This is a thrilling story that will delight readers interested in this period.” ―San Francisco Book Review on Tudors

“Ackroyd writes with such lightly worn erudition and a deceptive ease that he never fails to engage.” ―The Telegraph (UK) on Tudors

“Superbly accessible and readable.” ―Financial Times (UK) on Tudors

“Relaxed, unpretentious, and accessible.” ―The New York Times Book Review on Foundation

“Ackroyd's trademark insight and wit, and the glorious interconnectedness of all things, permeate each page.” ―Observer (UK) on Foundation

“Ackroyd brings delightful but revealing details of the lives of the people from the past into the present.” ―Sunday Express (UK) on Foundation

“An extraordinary book . . . Peter Ackroyd is arguably the most talented and prolific writer working in Britain today.” ―Daily Express (UK) on Foundation
