My favourite book this year!, 16 Oct 2012
I loved this: I loved the story of the trip around London and the way the narrative branched out into tales (past Thames disasters on film, canal adventures, secret lives on the Thames) and reminiscences. Great structure, utterly readable - compulsively so in fact! Everyone who loves London should read it, sailors should make a space on their tiny boat bookshelves, and all readers of good prose should buy it.
