Customer Review

on 21 October 2011
I enjoyed reading this book, but found it rather laborious at times, and it did not flow well. In fairness, given it was written over 300 years ago, it tells of the life Londoners were living in the plague years. It was quite frightening imagining the crude methods they had for containing the plague, and the lack of sanitation, and housekeeping they were able to employ at the time. Particularly fascinating was the story of the men who left London for the uninfected suburbs to find they ended up in my town, which thankfully was plague free !
This would also be a good read for any teenager studying early London life for history, and reminds us how far we have evolved.
