    Um...depends. I'm a big fan of Tudor history. I suppose it depends on if you want fact or fiction and your definition of 'fat'.

    For fiction, try Phillipa Gregory. She's my favorite. Or shorter, Robin Maxwell or Nicole Galland. A lot shorter and simpler: Carolyn Meyer.

    Fact, Elizabeth Jenkins or Anne Somerset. I'm more of a fiction person, but they are both good.

    fiction: Celia Rees has some good ones

    fact: Howard Zinn. A People's History of the United States of America. It's BIG, but is made up of many smaller essays.

    search through here to find other stuff. History is BIG. Do you want American? Ancient civilizations? Renaissance?

    The Crucible -I'm sure your going to have to read it sometime during high school, for me it was last year - my junior year -so you might as well get it over with. It wasn't really all that bad, it's written like a play so it's short, and it about Salem witch trials.
