Goodreads Review: An Atlas of Extinct Countries by Gideon Defoe

Five star review, originally posted here on December 27, 2021.

Nearly perfect! Defoe somehow manages to present complex histories in under 3 pages each. Every bite-size history is a funny and entertaining without being disrespectful. It takes serious skill to balance these elements effectively. It’s even more impressive that Defoe manages to make each history its own without getting too repetitive. I loved it. Highly recommend. Perfect end to my reading year!
