Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Journal of the Plague Year, written by a citizen who continued all the while in London (Kindle Edition)
I love this book. It's one of a very few that I have read several times. It amazes with it's contemporary account of the hideous transformation that the plague wrought on London citizens of all classes, and the way in which the peoiple and the authorities sought to prevent it's spread. These were people just like us, and accounts of the contrasting selfishness and genorousity of individuals and organisations, as well as their theories about the causes of the plague and ways to cure/prevent it are gripping.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
