100 Must-Read Historical Novels - Page 2

4th list from Bloomsbury Good Reading Guides, written solely by Nick Rennison. Covering everything from Ancient Rome to WWI, several have been filmed as movies or mini-series. Many of the authors, including some of the same books, were featured on my last list for prize winning novels. Like every book in the series, each entry lists tvor movie adaptation, other books by the author & books by other authors on a similar theme. Also has several lists of similar-themed books covering children's historical works(like "The Eagle of the Ninth"), Old (American) West, Ancient Greece & Rome, the Renaissance, etc. Enjoy, & check out my other lists too! Cheers!
