Summary

Like its popular and acclaimed predecessors, Restoration London and Dr Johnson's London, this fascinating evocation of Elizabethan London is the result of the author's passionate interest in the practical details of everyday life and the conditions in which most people lived, which most history books ignore: the streets, houses and gardens; cooking, housework and shopping; clothes, jewellery and make-up; medicine and sex; education, etiquette and hobbies; religion, law and crime.

Interesting but the narration is a little dry

This book is very well researched and interesting, but I found the manner of narration a little dry which meant I struggled to remain wholly engaged.

Good Book shame about the Narration

I was looking forward to this audiobook and whilst the subject was great if a somewhat lacking in detail, the choice of Liza Picard as Narrator was a bad one.

I suggest you listen to the audio sample first ( I made the mistake of not doing so ), as she reads it in a very

" I....(pause).....Shall....(pause)....Say.....(pause)....This....(pause)....So.....You....Understand....It...Way"

And are obvious sections in the book divided up with a very annoying "tune" that marks each one.

Hard to Follow Along

I got this book for a college class. I have it in paperback and need the audiobook to follow along as I read.

The audiobook isn't the same as the paperback. It skips over whole paragraphs sometimes. It makes it hard for thosw of us who like to read and listen at the same time.

I think they need to re-record this book so that it flows better. Try not to use the author.
