Rating: 5/5

This graphic novel series has been a bit of a weird one for me because it’s just got better and better as it went on. That might be a side effect of the fact that they had different authors for each book in the series, though.

But that could also be doing the series a disservice. Actually, I think this one was my favourite because of the subject matter. Set in the post-apocalyptic future on board a train that speeds through the frozen wastelands, in this final instalment, the train arrives at a final destination. What follows is basically an exploration of what happens when power gets to people’s heads, with everything from nuclear reactors and mutant babies to a few final answers and a little bit of closure.

I’d known about these books for a while, but it took me a surprising amount of time to get to it. Once I did though, I polished off the series in the space of a couple of months, and I’m kind of glad that I did. I think that I took more from it by reading it in that way, although I’ll also say that I think it could hold up well to a re-read. Definitely worth picking up.

Highlights from this Horrible Histories book included some stuff on urchins and chimney sweeps and a bunch of references to famous Victorian authors, from Charles Dickens to George Elliot. Of course, it still suffered a little from the same problems that the rest of the books have, such as the fact that the quizzes force you to keep stopping and turning the book upside down to read the answers, but it is what it is.

Ultimately, you know what you’re getting with Horrible Histories, and there’s a reason why I kept on reading my way through the box set. Now that I’ve reached the end, I feel like this particular book was the perfect one for me to end on. The Victorians were fascinating, man.
