The 1066 book left me with very mixed feelings. It was very detailed about the events of the fateful year in question, but the author's own feelings and prejudices against some of the major protagonists were to the forefront which meant that I found it difficult to be objective myself, which I don't particularly like in a historical book.
It is quite an old book, but it irritated me intensely. I really was disappointed.
The Pasta cookbook was also on oldie from the charity shop, but crammed full of yummy recipes which I shall enjoy trying out :-)
