Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans - Podcast

Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans - Podcast

At first, I didn't like this podcast. It seemed too childish for any adult to listen to (and don’t forget adults will hear when their child are listening). Until chapter 5, this is the case. They set it at the beginning in the classroom, making fun of the teacher. It was very dull and bland. It was trying to be something it wasn’t, hilarious. After chapter 5, it all gets interesting, and you get taken through in time with voice actors. They tell you what sayings we have that the Romans also used and rank the Emperors in order of most foul behaviour. One such gent cut off the nose and ears of gladiators he met in the ring. It's not very long, about two hours it took me to listen to.

Stephen Fry's Victorian secrets

Stephen Fry's Victorian secrets

As a Victorian history buff myself, I love these little 1 hour podcasts. From secrets of the freak shows to murder most foul, this podcast will have something that you didn't know before about your own history. Although after his game show QI, Stephen Fry is not my most trusted of historians. This podcast is mostly snippets from others reading or being interviewed about their specialised subjects. A podcast I thought I would hate I quite enjoyed.   It breaks the very idea that ordinary Victorians that they were all about hard work and 'none to do' with people. Some extracts from the Victorian's are so funny that you'll be on the floor laughing and some will make you red with embarrassment. For example, the fact that two twins got married, or that there is a library of the most significant Victorian porn down the road from you. Want to find out where? Or who? Well, you'll just have to listen for yourself.   If it wasn't for the poverty of the time

The Constantine Affliction by T. Aaron Payton

The Constantine Affliction by T. Aaron Payton

In a steam and electric London that is being hounded by a serial killer where T . Aaron Payton brings clockwork prostitutes and cruel diseases that change the sex of the infected. This book is not only funny but gripping. If you haven't read steampunk before this might be one you want to start with. This book has some raving reviews, and it's for a good reason, you need not be an into the genre to be into The Constantine Affliction. It's one of those gems that have a little of everything, comedy, murder and even touching on transgender rights. Everything has a story and a reason. I find it hard to pin down my favourite, but it has to be Freddy by far. She jumps off the page and into your heart with her sour comedy and quick wit. I didn't connect with the journalist E . Skye, I usually love the bold female characters, but she just felt unestablished compared to Pimm and Freddy.  Payton's describes this dangerous world where fires rage for lifetimes and mad scientist

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

Anthony Horowitz is known for his murder mysteries from the beloved detective Sherlock Holmes, but this Atticus Pünd book will take you on a ride you never will forget. When Editor Susan Ryeland is given the manuscript of Alan Conway’s latest novel, it is to be his final novel of the series. But killing off Atticus Pünd might be more of a debacle than Alan Conway ever counted on. This best-seller will have you whipped off your seat with these twists and turns. An old styled murder mystery that has not one but two murders. I never saw the twists coming, and that made this book so enjoyable. If it weren't already on the bestsellers list, it would be a find like no other. My View: I love this book, and I think it will always have a place in my heart. As one of those lovers of old-fashioned books, I have to admit that this will be hard to beat. The only thing I would say and I feel this is because the setting there weren't any exciting characters. I didn't feel drawn to anyon
