5.0 out of 5 stars Edwardian London encapsulated., 3 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Making the Arsenal (Paperback)
A fantastic book.The main character is one you really warm to and the banter between him and his boss is simply hysterical.The author very cleverly entwines fiction around real events of 1910 such as the parliament act of 1911,the suffragette movement, Welsh miners strikes and the worries over imminment war with Germany.Rarely has an historical novel given me such a feel for the era it is set in.You really get a feel for London in 1910.
There is also no need for you to be a football fan to enjoy the book,the story of Arsenals last days in Woolwich before moving to become North Londons biggest club is merely a backdrop-you could be a football-hater and still enjoy this book.
