Indecente Inghilterra vi racconta tutta la violenta verità sulle roboanti ribellioni le rovinose rivolte e i pazzeschi putiferi che hanno reso l'Inghilterra quella che è oggi (qualunque cosa essa sia). Dai cinici celti al virulento XX secolo, è una sanguinosa storia che vi stravolgerà. Volete sapere: Quale monaco tentò di pinzare il naso del diavolo con un paio di tenaglie? Chi nel Medioevo banchettava con la cacca di piccione? Quale re inglese fu accusato di essere un losco lupo mannaro? Dalle purulente piaghe agli incontrollabili incendi e alle grandi guerre civili, passando per il roast beef, il fish & chips e l'immancabile tazza di te... in questo libro c'è tutta l'Inghilterra. Immergetevi nelle miserie dei monarchi medievali, contate i dieci modi di morire in una miniera vittoriana e scoprire tutto sulle obbrobriose origini delle futili festività anglosassoni.

This book is an enjoyable read, like all other Horrible Histories.
This one has the best puns yet.

This book is very funny indeed (its written for kids) however I felt like I read some wow facts about England instead of some real facts (at least if it was chronologically listed but the author jumps from one century to another).

Read- July 2o2o for The Reading Rush (Read a book in a genre you've always wanted to read more of) - This wasn't my favourite book that I've read in this series so far, mainly because of the casual racism against Asian (specifically Korean) people.
It is a fun book with many interesting facts about England, although it is aimed at children, I enjoyed it a lot. Es un libro divertido con muchos datos interesantes acerca de Inglaterra, aunque esta enfocado para niños, lo disfrute bastante.
I love this book! Great horrible histories!
