Unruly is a cleverly titled, gag-filled journey through the monarchs of the middle ages. It’s still a history book though, filled with all the necessary information. Just with added irreverent observation and an honesty of opinion that one would not usually find in a normal history book. All of which makes it an enjoyable read. Initially I was concerned that it might be a bit too much and a bit too off piste, but it doesn’t take too long for Mitchell to get things on an even keel and the majority of this book is just pure fun. Interesting fun.

Hopefully he’ll do some sort of sequel.
