A brilliant journey. Unexpected at every turn.
on 17 September 2007
From the Radio 4 introduction with the writer prior to release this book was clear in it`s intentions of a journey behind the nightlife of a 24-7 city throughout it`s history as a commercial centre. A poetic and informed eccentric and rather wonderful journey of vast imagination and fact. I found it thrilling and informative but then I was clear what the book would be from the Radio 4 programme. Thoughtful and inspired and a real shared journey. No one should view London night life the same. I agree with the reviewer about never looking at one`s fellow commuters again in the same light. It really brings you behind the scenes and into a new way of looking at things.Ideally read at night or one for the tube. I thought this book was excellent and well worth buying. Wonderful language, ideas,characters ( real people ) and food for thought throughout. An excellent read. I really enjoyed it.
