Sometimes I feel like the only person I know who finds reading history fascinating. It’s so full of amazing-yet-true stories of people driven to the edge and how they reacted to it. I keep telling friends that a good history book (as opposed to some of those textbooks in school that are all lists and dates) does everything a good novel does–it grips you with real characters doing amazing things.
Am I REALLY the only person who feels this way? When is the last time you read a history book? Historical biography? You know, something that took place in the past but was REAL.
No you are not the only one. I have read several history book but really I enjoy Historical Fiction when the history is correct. My favorite series of books for this is the Outlander Series by Diana Galabdon. It does a wonderful job with being historical accurate. Not to mention I love the setting on both ends of this series. I would love to time travel and visit but know I could come back to my current situation and technological comforts.
Leave me your answers.
