MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for THE ADVENTURE OF ENGLISH * - *
Bragg's excellent radio programmes on the subject ...are the basis of this history of English over the past 1,500 years. Bragg is an expert translator in areas that academics find difficult to popularise. * Guardian *
He has a novelist's eye for the illuminating vignette...it is always readable, often thought-provoking, and consistently entertaining. * Independent *
This is a highly readable, jargon-free treatise on a notoriously prickly subject. Bragg's affection for his subject is infectious. * The Observer *
Melvyn Bragg's superb new history of the English language is told as an adventure story, and rightly so. There is much splendid intellectual firepower in this book. * Andrew Roberts, Spectator *
Beautifully clear and, indeed, thrilling * Waterstone's Books Quarterly *
Bragg's approachable account...gleams with little gems. His enthusiasm is appealing...he digs beneath modernity and examines our bedrock with a sympathetic eye. It has power and clarity...this adventure is rewarding. * Sunday Herald *
