Underground England: Travels Beneath Our Cities an&hellip by Stephen Smith
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
I was so disappointed by this book. It provided the author with an opportunity to tell some fascinting fact packed stories about underground places yet singularly fails to do that. The writing still is overly descriptive and flowery to the point that it becomes confusing as to where and what the writing is about. Truly, the author appears to have taken a thesaurus and challenged himself not to use the same word twice! There is an entire mini chapter about Frankie Howerd and I'm still totally confused about how this is relevant to underground England. I'd save your money and avoid this book.
