This is a very good sideways look at the whims and history of every day Londoners (as were) with lots of very entertaining (proper) history thrown in for good measure. You have to cast your mind into the mood to fully appreciate it though. May be not to everyone's taste as we do not all relate to London. Would be very interesting if someone could get hold of stories, anecdotes and history of other cities around the British Isles.

Dodger is a pleasant book about sewers in Victorian London, with many leisurely strolls among the flotsam and jetsam that made fortunes for some lucky fellows.
This pretty little picture book collects Punch cartoons and remarks by folks who drifted in and out of the first book. Sort of a vade mecum, if your Way-Back machine is in good nick.
If you enjoyed Dodger, you want this book. It is less obsessed with Poo; Sir Terry appears to have got it out of his system. Gesundheit.

Nice companion to Dodger, really pleased that this came out as I kind of missed Dodger when I finished the book.
The usual quality illustrations litter an interesting little addition to the Dodger novel

I was fascinated by the detaills of London life in Dickens day, mch more accessible to me than the Dickens novels, which i found hard going apart, from A tale of Two Cities.

This was a Christmas present from my wife, but the amount of facts contained in it must have taken up a lot of research time, a lot !
May not have purchased it myself, but, glad I got it. A mine of information to interest anyone seeking knowledge about London.

This was bought to keep my daughter's collection of Pratchett up to date. She was delighted and liked the 'take' on London that Pratchett has imagined.

A great fun book by a great writer. It is half way between the fantasy book which inspired it and a guide to Victorian London well worth buying and a fun book to use when in the city!

Bought as present for my husband who has been a Pratchett fan for years. He really enjoyed it though advises to read Dodger first to get the most benefit.

It's very informative, but most of the illustrations do not reproduce well on my Kindle, I did manage to see some on my Macbook, via kindle for mac, but can't get them back now, so I don't know what I did. Saving reading the text for flight home.
