    One thought on “Holland: The History of the Netherlands, with a Supplementary Chapter by Julian Hawthorne”

    1. A people prefers self-exile to slavery; and an illustrious house that seldom fails the naiton.It's interesting to read about the ups-and-downs of this small country, prospering when it insisted on independence, degrading when it succumbed to seemingly superior power. The power of a people to decide the destiny of a nation.It's intriguing to learn about the impact the illustrious house of Orange brings. How the ambition of Maurise overgrew to turn against his people and endanger the nation; and l [...]

    2. I downloaded this book from while I was in Holland. It took me some time to read over 400 pages of names, intrigues, assassinations, princes, kingdoms and alliances that changed as quickly as today's Italian parlament. I researched quite a lot on to get all the information to understand all the old dynasties so at the end the pages read where double the book. Written in an old-fashioned way where personal consideration and comments added flavour and spice to the history, I really enjoyed this [...]

    3. Not wonderfully doneA lot of history is covered in varying amounts of detail. Not as coherent a narrative as I had expected. It does a pretty good job of describing what a bright, industrious group of people the Dutch really are.

    4. A candidate for one of the worst books I've ever read. The editing is atrocious. the sentences see disconnected. The information is partial. It contains blatant racism and unfounded opinions. I feel I've been cheated even when this was a free ebook.
