London – Edward Rutherford

I read Paris while in Paris and really enjoyed it. I kept looking things up on Google maps to see where the locations were in relation to my location.

Here is the blurb for London

In the tradition of his phenomenal bestseller “Sarum”, Edward Rutherford now gives readers a sweeping novel of London, a glorious pageant spanning 2,000 years. He brings this vibrant city’s long and noble history alive through the ever-shifting fortunes, fates, and intrigues of half-a-dozen families, from the age of Julius Caesar to the 20th century. Generation after generation, these families embody the passion, struggle, wealth, and verve of the greatest city in the world.

I didn’t enjoy this one as much as Paris I struggled to get to the end. I couldn’t keep track of the characters and just when I started to get interested the story moved to a new generation. However, I do feel that I have learnt something about London’s history and from that point of view it was an easy read.
