    This epic work really does bring history alive in your as Rutherford moves from chapter to chapter effortlessly tracing the history

  2. says:

    A sprawling historical novel as big as London itself it was reuired reading before I went to study abroad and I've read it twice since Rutherford did an incredible amount of research and it all comes together beautifully The characters' family trees carry through the entire history of Britain pre Roman through

  3. says:

    The third book of Rutherford's that I've read of this type Have previously read Sarum and Russka and this book pretty much followed those; nothing really surprising or extraordinary about this bookI suggest reading this book for of the historical facts than any sort of story telling As a history of London and England it's nice in that it's no

    I did not like this book and probably won't finish it though I'm 34 of the way through The author goes from life to life through the history of London and because it's such massive history is unable to give details about the characters and environments that I usually adore Because of this lack of detail I feel disconnected from the characters and the story I chose to read it after going to London and wishing I could learn about

    This was like a cross between a history textbook and One Hundred Years of Solitude It's the history of London since before the Roman invasion till modern times told through life stories of generations upon generations of a few of the same families So 2000 Years of Solitude in London if you will I vaguely expected the book to rapidly gloss over the olden times and spend 80% of time on the Victorian era but it didn't Actually Ruthe

    Ugh Every physical description of a female character began and ended with her breasts Wooden prose stilted dialogue actually the only thing I enjoyed about this book were the descriptions of London as it grew and changed If Rutherfurd had written a story about the city itself rather than bringing characters into it I might have enjoyed it Maybe a better writer will attempt that book

  10. says:

    It's odd to read a 1124 page novel and feel that it's too short This is not a haute literature novel but rather a sprawling ramble through the history of London the terrain and its people made accessible through a series of chronological tales told through the ages As with Sarum Mr Rutherfurd follows different families over the centuries with their stories intertwining due to coincidence marriage and friendsh
