4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 13 Feb 2009
This review is from: London Walks: London Stories (Paperback)
Well I guess it depends how much you know already.
This book has many facets. Some chapters are almost walks step by step, and some are sort of background stories. The effect it had on me was to make me want to explore these places on my own. Which is strange, I guess, because then I wouldn't take the paid walk! But then some of the really interesting chapters make me want to meet the guides and will help me to put what they say into some context - after all my memory is not that good and I wouldn't retain every detail from the book. So .. hmmm . . I think overall it's a great success because it makes me more INTERESTED in things I didn't know before and wouldn't have thought of finding out.
Thank you Mr Tucker - oh and your prose is the tiramisu of tour guides!
