Once again, Dan Jones surpassed my expectations. He does a fantastic job in writing about the Plantagenet Dynasty and the kings who ruled in the dynasty preceding the Tudors.
As per the norm in my reading Jones’ books, I found myself getting emotionally invested (maybe a little too emotionally invested at times) in the timeline, particularly when he discusses Edward I and Edward II.
There were times where I got confused, but in the classic Dan Jones style, he was able to clear up any confusion that I had pretty quickly.
The Plantagenet Dynasty was one I didn’t know much about, so it was nice to get this well written book as an introduction to the dynasty as a whole. (I have read a book about Edward I by Marc Morris which was a really good read.)
I definitely will be looking into reading more about this dynasty. ( )

A thick book with short, easy-to-read chapters, covering 245 years of Plantagenet history as kings of England and some chapters setting the scene before that. Even in this thickness, there was a sense there was a lot more to cover, but as a brief introduction from the start to the end this worked very well. ( )

At first I was all like, "Man, the Plantagenets is super long and detailed, I will never get through this book." Then I was all like, "Man, this book is _super detailed_, this is great!" And then I was, "I am bummed because I finished the Plantagenets, does Dan Jones have any other books?" It turns out he does!

The Plantagenets is an immensely readable yet still dense history of the British Royal Family from 1135 to 1399 with the White Ship disaster of 1120, Henry I dying and the country falling into the Anarchy as Empress Matilda and King Stephen of Blois go to war. And from there we are off to the races following the wax and wane of the Plantagenets from the greatest of them (Henry II, Edward III, the Black Prince) to the very worst (Edward II, Richard II) and everyone in between. There is blood and treachery and war and murder and regicide and treason and big pitched battles and Scots and crazed Welshmen fighting in swamps and drama.

If you're super interested in the 800th year anniversary of the Magna Carta and its impacts to history, this book goes into pretty good detail.

Loved it, would recommend it. A fine book of history. Totally worth the high ratings it has on Goodreads. ( )

Very well-written and compelling. Jones weaves a narrative across 275 years of history and the reigns of a dozen monarchs. His prose is straightforward and he uses the perfect combination of detail and distance to put everything into context. I loved watching the eternal Catch-22 all of the Plantagenet rulers found themselves in: They needed victories in France to boost political capital at home... but those victories required tax hikes that decreased that same political capital. How much of the Plantagenets' fates really did come from their character and abilities, and how much actually came from simple luck on the battlefield? ( )

A tale full of big personalities, of flawed personalities, of troubled men (and women), of weak men (and women), of wars and 'derring do'; except that it's all real. Wonderfully written it reads like an action adventure but all based on well researched fact. Will make you realise what an epic history our little island and that it was an Empire much longer ago than you might have thought. Looking forward to reading about his take on the Wars of the Roses.

"Fast-paced and accessible, "The Plantagenets" is old-fashioned storytelling and will be particularly appreciated by those who like their history red in tooth and claw."
 
"Blood-soaked medieval England springs to vivid life in Jones’s (Summer of Blood) highly readable, authoritative, and assertive history—already a #1 bestseller in the U.K."

"Jones, a protege of David Starkey, writes with his mentor's erudition but also exhibits novelistic verve and sympathy."
adicionado por bookfitz | editarThe Guardian, Alexander Larman (Jun 2, 2012)
 
"Jones has written a magnificently rich and glittering medieval pageant, guiding us into the distant world of the Plantagenets with familiar confidence."

For a sensible man ought to consider that Fortune's favor is variable and her wheel is ever turning... [T]he Prince must take care, and always have imprinted on his mind the fact that although the merciful Creator... is long-suffering and patient... He is likewise severe in executing punishment and vengeance upon the stubborn and willful, and usually begins to exact that punishment here on earth.
— Gerald of Wales, The Conquest of Ireland
