I ordered this book for my best friend...she had tried
unsuccessfully to buy it in Australia, I was thrilled when I found it online and even more thrilled at how quickly it was dispatched to me, what great service, Sandra, Brighton, Australia

I cannot rate this highly enough. Beautifully and sensitively written collection of vignettes about the times the Thames has frozen over. I had a vested interest in this book as it was part of my research for something I was writing, but it deserves a much wider readership. Brilliant example of a whole world conveyed in a few choice words, lots of conceptual and meditative ideas aptly put.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book 21 Sept. 2016
By Ironed out - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is made up of 40 short essays each one dedicated to
telling a poignant story that took place in each of the forty years the Thames River froze. Rich in history and humanity and the struggles nature inspires. Loved the authors voice and style.
5.0 out of 5 stars I have become a deep-dyed Humphreys fan! 16 Aug. 2011
By PT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This little book is so well-written. I'm not sure I'd call it a novel; it's more like a fascinating prose poem. It's a work to savor and enjoy over and over, like a good poem. Try it for yourself... I think you will agree that it will also make a lovely gift for anyone who enjoys good writing like yourself. Also, if you haven't already read her novel, The Lost Garden, you will do yourself a favor to track it down. I'm pretty sure I've seen it here on Amazon.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Helen Humphrey’s 2007 The Frozen Thames straddles the fiction/non-fiction divide and is a Fabergé egg of a book: a collection of very brief, sparkling vignettes—one for each known year in which the Thames froze—based on historical sources.
5.0 out of 5 stars How cold is it? 17 July 2013
By Barbara Felicetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marvelous vignettes only 2-5 pages long, each around one of the 40 times in history that the Thames froze solid. A small book in size and focus but big in scope. Loved it and so did many in my book group
5.0 out of 5 stars The Frozen Thames 29 Nov. 2009
By Pamela Murray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What an exquisite little book! Initially, I was not happy as it was not available on Kindle, but having ordered it anyway, I now understand. This is a jewel to be savored and held in the hand, and would never translate to the electronic page. The vignettes are vivid, and the illustrations so fitting.
