    Readable Revolution!

    Really dispelled beliefs I held about the revolution: Louis wasn't guillotined by only one vote. I had found it hard to feel as if I had an understanding of what happened in this very disturbing and confusing time. The index is helpful for cross-reference, but I would have liked a glossary. The characters are vivid (Robespierre's green face is easy to conjure), and the violence is not glossed over, so one isn't able to forget just how savage man can be.

    Wonderful introduction to French Revolution

    This is an absolute classic. Christopher Hibbert is a wonderful writer and this may be his best work.

    Eventful Days from 1789-1795

    Christopher Hibbert's The Days of the French Revolution was rather exciting with vivid detail in certain areas. But I felt that not all topics were covered in the same manner. Some were excessively long and rather dull to say the least. At times animated scenes would pop into my mind due to the wide variety of literacy used throughout this book. I'm sorry to say at other points in the story I found myself repeatedly reading a certain paragraph, or maybe even a single line! It is just one of those books that has an amazing and suspenseful beginning and end, but what seems to be a terribly long middle. Over all, though, I would recommend this book if you are a French fanatic, or a 'I LOVE reading history' type of teacher!:)
