It may be full of little gems, as the other reviews say. However, the writing is especially awful. I couldn't read more than a few pages, and tried several of the chapters. I was suspicious of the title, which is so unimaginativly blunt and drab.

There must be a million great books to read about London. So much as one would never return to a London restaurant with bad food or indifferent service, so one is not obliged to struggle through underwhelming writing. Full of bored sentences that drone for slightly too long, I'd recommend picking another.

There's a good book in this title trying to get out! The content is fascinating but the book needs a copy editor to correct the writing and get it better organised. The conversion of the text into a Kindle edition has been inexpertly done. For example, there's no internal or externally hyperlinked tables of contents, making it very laborious to access the chapters. Peter - get some professional publishing help for your next book.

Been waiting for a book like this for ages - brilliant, even the boring bits are better than wandering round the streets of London and not knowing anything at all. Reading the 2nd book now which is just as good.

Very poorly written, glad i read it on a friends kindle as i would have been furious if i paid actual money for it. Some of my sixth form students have better developed writing styles.
