Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
the first time i read this book was in the late '50's. i had a paperback version. had been searching for this on and off for decades, until the internet came no luck, now i am re reading it again, its a very funny read, sociologically and historically incisive, it wears its years well, stands the test of time. ideal for a londoner who has a sense of humour and an awareness of mid victorian and 20th centuries history. it works for me. allways make your own mind up though, never rule out a book or film just because a reviewer may not like it!
