Brief? Yes only about 9hrs long. Pleasurable? I guess so, the narrator's voice was pleasant, soothing without being dull. Irreverent? Not so much. If you're putting the word irreverent in your title, I'm expecting some humor, especially of the snarky variety. There was very little humor here, the history of England told in a straight forward, text-book manner. 3 💥💥💥 out of 5

catebutler Shoot! From the title, I would have expected some snarky humour as well! 😕 8mo

A quick overview of a lot of English history, focusing on royalty. Most historically figures seemed very human. I was a little puzzled by the representation of Queen Elizabeth. I‘m not a historian, so grain of salt here, but if a bunch of sexist men write horrible things about a woman in power, like that she throws “tantrums” I wouldn‘t assume it‘s true. Especially when many of her male relatives were...tantrum prone.
