I rovinosi romani vi rivela la vergognosa verità celata dietro al più imponente impero di tutti i tempi, dalla ributtante repubblica agli empi imperatori che trasformarono l'omicidio in un simpatico sport. Volete sapere: Quale imperatore amava mangiare garretti di cammello? Come mai una mucca sul tetto porta sfortuna? Come si chiamava la dea romana che proteggeva i cardini delle porte? Rompete la quadrata quotidianità della soporifera scuola con i nostri agghiaccianti aneddoti e demoralizzate il vostro prof con il racconto del sanguinolento sistema romano di recupero crediti e con la disgustosa descrizione dell'ipertricosi dell'irsuto criminale Caligola! La storia non è mai stata così orribile! Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

This was the first Horrible Histories book I picked up as a child and it really changed things for me and helped me to get to where I am today. I re-read this as I'm taking an A-level in archaeology and I am studying the Romans, obviously I will read lots of other books on the Romans aimed at adults Leggi tutto
Rating: 4.5 stars History is a pretty tricky subject to learn, not only because you have to memorise all those crucial events and the people who changed their course, but you also take for granted facts which seem more like opinions written down by the winners of a war or the chroniclers of an empire Leggi tutto
Terry Deary is one of those authors that has a wicked sense of humour that can make history both hilarious and interesting. He has probably helped thousands, if not millions of kids actually enjoy history, myself included. The Horrible Histories series is a great starting point to get kids intereste Leggi tutto
Murky myths, blood-drenched battles, and meet the gruesomest of gladiators. Stars author Terry Deary. For some fun listening: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/... This whole series I recommend to an older squirt.

If you're not a fan of reading history books intended for adults, then the Horrible Histories series is the perfect way to learn. It has a great sense of humor and keeps history entertaining. I discovered this series at the British Museum in London and have been addicted ever since!
A good information book about how clever the Romans were in war, how Julius Ceaser was assassinated and much much more!
It took me ages to read this, I don't know why. I just thought that the things about the celts wre pretty boring, considering it was a book about Romans.
LBC bingo: book recommended by a book club member BLACKOUT!
This is quite an entertaining book. Laced with a general British ire for the conquering Romans and unlike the volume on the Greeks which extols their many achievements despite the irreverent tone of the series, this one means it when it says rotten. Admittedly there is much available historical mate Leggi tutto
