Ummm, this is it?!

Where did all the history go?

Did I inadvertently sign up for History lite? Or perhaps somebody got a little edit happy and pulled out all the good parts of history to leave this shell behind? I mean, come on. The book is only an inch thick! What happened to the 3+ inch volumes that we had to lug around in our backpacks when we were in high school? Did they finally figure out that all that weight is not good for growing boys and girls? Ah, so this would explain my measly 5’6” frame… 

For those of you wondering what the hell I’m complaining about, this is not me complaining. This is me breathing a deep, huuuuuuuge sigh of relief. If History books had looked like this in high school maybe I would have cared a little more, possibly paid closer attention (ok, probably not, I was a teenage girl after all!). Nothing like going into a class and realizing you have to get through an entire encyclopedia volume in 9 months. A little daunting…But this! This is merely a novel, a scant 500 pages of glorious history telling! (I’m really trying to ramp this up in my head…) 

So, let’s get this party started! First assignment, read the first 50 pages. Sounds easy enough…

    Who does not like the condensed version of history? The reason we were given books that weighed eight pounds was to keep our extremely high energy levels in check, what better way to make us compliant then to work us to death before class starts. “)
