5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Wait!, 20 May 2012
This review is from: London In The Eighteenth Century: A Great and Monstrous Thing (Hardcover)
Having read the author's brilliant previous books London In The Nineteenth Century: 'A Human Awful Wonder of God' and London in the Twentieth Century: A City and Its People, I was very much looking forward to the publication of this one. It certainly does not disappoint. In London In The Eighteenth Century: A Great and Monstrous Thing, Jerry White takes us on a fascinating tour of the great metropolis during a century of rapid change and expansion. It's a fascinating journey back in time, giving us a vivid picture of the sights, smells, character and society of London during this period. I will be revisiting areas of the capital with renewed interest and fresh insight. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book, and the others in the trilogy, to anyone with an interest in the history of London and society as a whole. It is extremely well researched and a very enjoyable read - no dry history this! I was really sorry to reach the last page, but will undoubtedly reread it in the future.
