I am in love with London: The Biography already, and I've only read the introduction.

"London is so large and so wild that it contains no less than everything".

yeah, I'm enjoying it too about 150 pages in (surprisingly quick by my standards!)- I'm quite liking the fact that it's more ipressionistic than a po-faced history

He's such a wonderfully lyrical writer, no matter what the subject is. It reads like his novels.

Its a great book.
I feel a need to re-read it now (again)...

He's such a fabulous writer. Hopefully, by the time I've finished this, my flatmate will have finished Thames, and I can start on that.

Am looking for it online, and to avoid confusion - who _is_ the authour?

Peter Ackroyd.

I absolutely love it. I am a London nutter, though. I have a shelf for this sort of thing. But yes. It is brill.

Could not get past Chapter One. For some reason I got bored. I love his other books though.
