Customer Review

on 22 May 1999
As I began a new job in the city, I purchased this book to read as I commuted. Over a thousand pages was a little daunting. However, I have been enthralled, excited and intrigued as Rutherfurd propelled me through a city which I now see with new eyes. From the quiet idyllic life before the Romans to the blasting of the city in the Blitz. One moment excited, the next sad. The injustice of some of the events. Right prevails - but not in every case. As the book developed, I felt part of what was happening. The grief, joy and intrigue - each character and family developing over the centuries as the city grows and develops also. This is the magic of fiction woven through the historical fact of the great city of London. It is the first book I have read by this author, I can't wait to begin another.
