History of England In Words of One Syllable

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.6 stars; 5 reviews)

A simple history of England written principally with words of one syllable. Books of these kind, I understand, are helpful for both beginning and remedial reading students. - Summary by KevinS (4 hr 21 min)

Helpful Overview

(4 stars)

This interesting text is a helpful overview for one who has only heard English history by piecemeal from many different sources. But I am in no position to vouch for all its contents - having heard a few of these people and events portrayed in quite a different light by other authors of a similar era. Some readers are excellent, and some chapters are benefitted by the playback speed feature in the app.
