5.0 out of 5 stars The Underbelly, 17 July 2006
An honest and real guide to the buildings that makes London what it is and isn't. It's also a partial explanation for why the English are who they are. Long's book in main avoids the standard tourist and more recognisable buildings but instead studies the buildings that really are unique and different. In short the 'extraordinary' buildings.

The interesting thing is that so many of the buildings in this book are those that you might have walked past once or twice or more and not realised just how unique or important they are.

If you want a tour of what London is really about architecturally and do it from your couch then this is a wonderful place to start. Or get off the couch and take it with you.

A fascinating insight.
