    Nigel Tranter is the ultimate Scottish storyteller His historical novels are always gripping to the last page not sparing the reader the sometimes horrific endings the leaders of Scotland came to think William Wallace He always gets into the heads and the hearts of characters that are just names and dry facts in any other history bookThis book then being a non fiction history bookyou would expect it to be the dry dull facts on which he builds his characters Not this book This is a really well put together account of or less 1500 years of Scottish historyThe way it is written you could imagine yourself sitting in Tranter's study in his housr in Aberlady glass of whisky in hand log fire crackling loudly in the hearth as he merrily chats to you about his favourite subject He works hard to help you see the conseuences of what was happening what makes Scotland so very different from England the history of religious division why highlanders mistrust lowlanders so well writtenThis is my third time reading this book and it still leaves me breathless at how Scotland evolved as a nation and indeed is still evolving Well worth the read

    I first read Nigel Tranters fiction many years ago Unicorn Rampant during a trip to Scotland Highly enjoyable and enlightening This book is fascinating A really good history full of place names and people that if I were a Scot might have had a little familiarity Nevertheless having finished the book I feel that my knowledge of Scotland has expanded than ten fold Scottish history prior to the Jacobites was uite confusing to me and after the Convergenge of Scotland and England in 1706 became even challenging Reading this book was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it

    Reading the story of Scotland you realize what has been the prototype for Song of Ice and Fire Even the Red Wedding has its prototypeAnd Tranter is an enjoyable storyteller This isn't an academic history but a story of adventure and excitement

    The first thing I have to say about this book is that it's far too short Scotland is a complicated place with a long and interesting history Rushing through it the way Tranter does doesn't do it the justice it deserves And it makes it much complicated when you rush through generations the way he necessarily has toThe other thing that confuses a reading of the book is his use of titles to identify people A book of this type can struggle with naming people because so many people shared names But charging through generations like this using inherited titles means that it is so easy to get father son and even grandson confusedHaving said that it's a good primer in Scottish history For someone who knew nothing it would help them discover the eras and events that capture their interest and then other books could be found to explore those areas And I learnt from itA good little primer but you need to take time to read it in order to take in the pace it's written at

    The author is a historical novelist who finds most history books dull He wants to tell a story about real people in history He has succeeded and this is both readable and informative about various characters in Scotland's historyI am not sure who he wrote this for however anyone really interested in the history would want a academic book and those interested in the characters would probably prefer a novel with a historical setting It does show that he has done his research and can condense it into the salient points It encouraged me to read his novels and that is not a bad reason for writing it

    I finally got around to reading this brief history of Scotland after having this book for oh almost fifteen years I bought it on one of my first trips to Scotland on the recommendation of our tour guide Fergie forever It's a very good overview but fitting an entire country's entire history into fewer than 250 pages is a challenge Because of the short length I was often confused how many Marys and Jameses are there?? and some stuff was glossed over Robert the Bruce please It's still a good intro written by one of Scotland's most prolific contemporary writers and I'm glad I finally read it Now to plan a return trip
