First things first, I must admit that I have generally not been a big fan of poetry. Only recently have I myself tried to attempt writing some of it. But I do love history and I was intrigued at the fact that an author could attempt to tell historical stories in the form of poems. And that’s why I knew I had to pick this up from the Blogchatter library.
The blurb goes like this:
Is history your Waterloo? No more! The anthem ‘History is Boring’ is now passé. Here is a collection of historical tales about rebellious dancers and whiskeys; mysterious burials and missing keys; lost medals and quarantines and all you could only imagine to be. Presenting twenty-five delectable stories from the past that you may never have heard of before. What’s more? They are sassy and classy; easy and breezy; terse and very much in verse!
The title and the cover which has images of different historical events and figures over the pages of a book make you want to move forward and know what the book is all about.
