I enjoyed this book and it is full of interesting facts and stories about what lies beneath the metropolis. The only off putting thing is it is written by a man and read by a woman and for some reason it does not quite work.
But never the less a good 'easy' listen and you can dip in and out which is good if like me you listen in bed and fall asleep and have to keep re winding!

I love history of London and the Underground, but found I couldn't maintain my attention on this. While there were some interesting parts, I was hoping for something as engaging as a Bill Bryson, it's just not that good. Like others, I'm going to ask why the narrator is a woman? At first I thought maybe the author was writing as a lesbian, but later it becomes apparent that no, this woman's voice talking about being a man. Actually the narrator, is otherwise, very good. Didn't return it, but came close to it. It won't get a second listen.
