5.0 out of 5 stars
The most interesting and un-put-down-able book I've ever read., 22 Sep 2011
This book is a fantastic journey through London's history and brilliantly connects the key events through a family tree, showing how London and the people of London have changed through time. It is an interesting account of social history and has me talking about the city constantly, and wanting to know more. Once my husband has read the book we're going to complete a tour of the key areas, starting at St Mary Le Bow. I have already bought this book for a colleague as I'm desperate to have someone keep pace with me and share the tales of the Bulls, Carpenters and Flemings... 5 stars isn't enough!
