Author Suzannah Liscomb does a brilliant job of taking the physical world that is Tudor England and transforming it into an insightful and informative journey through a history of the time period I was drawn to this work as a graduate of Early Modern British history and wanted to read something with a unique presentation This work is everything that I wanted Liscomb brings history to life like no other by presenting Tudor stories through a context of physical locations, readers can achieve what feels like a personal telling of history through places that one might still see today This work is completely the opposite of what you might expect to find on your stuffy professor s dusty bookshelf Brilliantly, Liscomb is even able to work the expression Tudor Bling into her writing Even though I have studied Tudor England as an undergraduate, I found this work to even teach me a few new things as well Each chapter belongs to a different place of historical significance and readers will find each tellinginteresting than the last A fitting tagline for this work could definitely be Oh to be a fly on that wall I cannot express how much I think people need to read this book If it s at all possible that you do not find Tudor England fascinating, this book will make you see what the rest of us do I was so excited when Suzannah Lipscomb told me that she was writing this book because I knew it would be different to all of the guide books that are out there and it is The word companion is spot on because it is a guide that will appeal to those who want to actually physically go and visit these Tudor places, and to those who want to be transported from the comfort of their armchair to Tudor England without moving a muscle Suzannah s premise in choosing the places to go in the book was t I was so excited when Suzannah Lipscomb told me that she was writing this book because I knew it would be different to all of the guide books that are out there and it is The word companion is spot on because it is a guide that will appeal to those who want to actually physically go and visit these Tudor places, and to those who want to be transported from the comfort of their armchair to Tudor England without moving a muscle Suzannah s premise in choosing the places to go in the book was that there must be something left of the place that is worth seeing She could write about Nonsuch Palace and Greenwich Palace, but there is nothing left of them for the visitor to see, so it would be a huge disappointment for people travelling to their locations So, the focus is on places that Tudor history buffs can go, visit and enjoy.The book is divided into geographical locations London and Greater London, South East, South West, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, North East North West Yorkshire and the Humber and there is a useful appendix giving opening times and details of how to get to the places Each entry gives the history of the place, how it links to the Tudors and what attractions the visitor can expect to see and enjoy there Being both British and a Tudor history lover, I m familiar with the majority of the Tudor attractions, but there were some that I had missed and that are now on my list of must sees places like Charterhouse and Lincoln s Inn in London.Written in Suzannah s engaging, easy to read style, this book is perfect for Tudor history lovers whatever their knowledge It s not an academic history book, it s a guide book to England s beautiful Tudor buildings and a journey back in time, but with the stamp of Suzannah s expertise and Tudor knowledge A book to add to your suitcase on a trip to the UK or to simply enjoy with a glass of wine after a hard day in the 21st century Very interesting to read about all of these places This book was personally disappointing as it was not what I hoped it would be Of course that s my fault since I should have beencareful in my selection Based on the title big mistake, I know I thought it would be a discourse on the daily life of the Englishman living during the Tudor era Well it wasn t any such thing I think I could have overlooked my disappointment and rated this book better if it wasn t for the fact the book is also a disappointment for its intended purpose The au This book was personally disappointing as it was not what I hoped it would be Of course that s my fault since I should have beencareful in my selection Based on the title big mistake, I know I thought it would be a discourse on the daily life of the Englishman living during the Tudor era Well it wasn t any such thing I think I could have overlooked my disappointment and rated this book better if it wasn t for the fact the book is also a disappointment for its intended purpose The author candidly admits that it is a tourist guide for those people interested in touring sites of the Tudor era As the author is a scholar of some merit I will not argue with her selection of sites but what she has done is select primarily buildings constructed in the Tudor style and then discuss these buildings along with any significant paintings that may be inside So this is actually an architectural tour that she has designed and describes My problem with the book is that architecture and art are visual arts and any book attempting to discuss these things requires generous illustrations The only illustrations in this book are very small thumbnail size drawings at the head of each chapter These help a little but not very much If this book is intended to reach the unschooled tourist then it will fail because no tourist is going to select a guide that isn t lavishly layered with photographs and drawings If an intended purchaser is a student of architecture and art he she may find the list useful but the text is aimed at the layman and well below their level of interest The book just doesn t accomplish what it intends and thus my rating
