Summary

A wonderful, epic story that tells the history of the greatest city in the world, from Roman times to the present day. From the author of Paris, Sarum and New York.
London has perhaps the most remarkable history of any city in the world. Now its story has a unique voice. In this epic novel, Edward Rutherfurd takes the listener on a magnificent journey across 16 centuries, from the days of the Romans to the Victorian engineers of Tower Bridge and the dockland development of the modern day.
Through the lives and adventures of his colourful cast of characters, he brings all the richness of London's past unforgettably to life.

my favourite book yet

I had been looking for an audio version of this book for ages, and when it appeared it was an instant purchase. each chapter is like a book in itself. you get attached to the characters in each one. it only gets slightly less enjoyable when it comes to the conversations about taxes and politics but these are necessary for an understanding of the social and political climate of the age in question. the narrator is excellent and I can't find any fault in the performance. I'd recommend this book as a must buy for anyone interested in historical fiction. And especially if you live in or near London. It'll make you look at your surroundings in a whole new light. five stars all the way!
