Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Victorian City: Everyday Life in Dickens' London (Kindle Edition)
I have read many accounts of Victorian life but this one gets down into real detail. I read "Sketches by Boz" a couple of years ago and am now going back to read it again. This book helps me understand many aspects of what Dickens wrote about which I failed to understand. Dickens, of course was writing to a contemporary readership and after 175 years we do not recognize details which they were familiar with. This book goes a long way towards allowing us to do that.
