If you're looking for a beautifully illustrated book on London which isn't the same as all the others, this is it, truly. As the title suggests there's a hundred strange places in here - strange in that you won't know them at all, or if you think you do you don't really, or even if you really do you almost certainly won't know the extraordinary stories behind them. The author does, however, and tells them here with super photography, a nice, very readable writing style, and most of all the sort of wit and enthusiasm which can't fail to bring the place alive for Londoners new, old and ex.
