By Stewart M TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 4 Nov. 2014
Format: Paperback
I struggled with this book – and in the end it defeated me.

While this book is part of a series of volumes about the London Underground, I really found to hard to connect this books with the specific line – the Waterloo and City Line – that the book is supposed to be about.

As far as I could tell the books was a series of disconnected conversations (presumably) lifted from commuters on the line in question. While this ‘stream of consciousness’ style may given some idea about the conservations that occur in trains in general, this book is supposed to be about some specific aspect of the Waterloo and City Line itself.

The book actual has two parts – which are intended to read from one end of the book or the other. One being the journey outward, the other, inward. I could detect no real difference between these two parts.

I think this is more of an idea than a complete book – “lets listen to conversations on an outbound and inbound train and just write them down”.

I really can’t recommend this book at all – I only read (most of) it because it was part of a boxed set.

There are much better books in this particular series, so in this case I think you should proceed with extreme caution.
