5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy of a book., 20 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London In The Nineteenth Century: 'A Human Awful Wonder of God' (Paperback)
What a wonderful book!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just couldn't stop reading it. There were so many details, names, events and places that I had heard my father talk about and that had to do with the research I was doing on my grandfather and his forefathers that it seemed as if Mr. White had sat down and written the story of my past. I am so grateful for that. It helped me to put so many things into perspective, I found myself saying "Yes,yes", over and again.
Subsequently I purchased London in the 20th Century and again found much to identify with. I enjoyed it just as much as the first book.
I greatly look forward to Mr. White's next contribition, which I understand is to be London in the 18th Century.It seems my family goes back a long way as Londoners and as I have recently discovered a great great great great Grandmother born in London in 1762 I am anticipating with impatience the publishing of this next instalment.
I really cannot recommend these books highly enough. They are full of well-written fascinating detail.

Thank you very much.
