    Top Ten

    As an Anglophile and someone who has lieral dozens of books concerning London, this is easily in my top ten. Well written, entertaining, and not terribly dry. Fabulous read.

    Very interesting for anyone who loves London

    When I finished it, I wished for more! Very well researched and written. Subtracted 1 star because of so few pictures. It would have been 5 stars with more pictures.

    Highly recommended for history buffs and Anglophiles. This book

    Highly recommended for history buffs and Anglophiles. This book retraces some of the ground covered in his prior work Thames: The Biography -- viz. the various underground rivers in London. But lovers of archaeology and urban exploration will find this engrossing.

    Not worth the effort.

    I was pretty disappointed with this book. I bought it expecting to get a history of London's underground areas. There is very little story or narrative at all. Instead it is just a dry litany of things that have been found and where thay are located. I read for enjoyment, and favor historical nonfiction. There are many better examples out there. I've made it to page 34 in this book, but I really don't want to push through the rest of it.
