Review The greatest work of fiction since vows of fidelity were included in the French marriage service. This collection of scripts is quite easy to read, and, like the performances, pure genius.
Blackadder: The Whole Damn Dynasty, 1485-1917
Dec 15, viv rated it it was amazing. See 1 question about Blackadder….
I added the irritatingly bold and italicized markup not too long after a coworker blackaddder mine, returning from a two week vacation, walked into the work environment facing the wrong direction.
Admittedly, I’ve seen boackadder of the episodes, so I can “hear” the characters, but I doubt that is a major factor. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. In case of a catastrophic electrical grid failure, I’ll still have my Blackadder to peruse with glee. I loved the extra scenes and lines that have been kept in comparison to the final cut and I really enjoyed the bonus material especially the Index of Blackadder’s Finest Insults but I just find without the actual actors portraying these characters something is lost this could just Now, don’t get me wrong I am a huge fan of this series and ca’t help but kill myself laughing whenever I watch them even when I know what’s going to happenbut I just couldn’t get into the reading of this at all.
Really need the ebook!

Now I just need the DVD box set!
blackaddwr There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The maximum penalty the law allows is to be burned to death. Otherwise, the show is damn near as funny in print as on the screen, especially when one has seen most of the episodes as many times as I have. In my opinion, it is a book that’s well worth getting a copy for any fan of comedy in general. You can have the afternoon off when you die.
The only thing funnier than watching Black Adder, is reading it. The entire thing is utterly hilarious. It’s worth buying for the all the extras, like Baldrick’s family tree. If you love the TV series you will love the book, although I do think Rowan Atkinson adds a great deal just by appearing on screen as Edmund.
Refresh and try again. Can I expect to get an ebook for this? The history is surprisingly well done, tho I remember as children my brother and I, who were the biggest fans of this series imaginable, spent endless hours recreating the scenarios in this book with unfettered glee. As laugh out loud funny as watching it – every second reading this was time well-spent. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The bonus material is less interesting than the scripts thelmselves, but that hardly matters, since the scripts are so funny.
Blackadder: The Whole Damn Dynasty, by Richard Curtis
A must for any Blackadder fan. The quotes above are examples of the sort of stuff that is likely to go over most people’s heads if they just watch the show without interruptions which is how it should be watched, in my opinion ; for example I have read at least a couple of books dealing with the history of medieval England yet I had no idea who Wat Tyler ‘a leader of the Peasants’ Revolt in England’, wiki tells me was.
Unlike The Complete Fawlty Towersreading the scripts for Blackadder was just as entertaining – if not almost even more so! This product description was expressly stolen by me from Amazon.

Blackadder: The Whole Damn Dynasty
We find out how the line survived to when it did, and how each generation seemed further down the pecking scale than the one before, each story being told with the same humour you could expect from an episode proper All in all, the book makes for a great read.
Jul 12, Keith rated it really liked it Shelves: Jun 02, Evan rated it liked it Shelves: Books by Richard Curtis. The history is surprisingly well done, though it gets a bit silly very quickly.
In hindsight that may come off as abusive. A must-have for Blackadder fans, and probably for any fan of British situational comedy. Would it hold up in written form, or fall flat like the scripts for say, Fawlty Towers did?
