London: The Autobiography. one major thing about this book - it isn't an autobiography - the city of London did not become sentient and write a book about itself beginning in 60AD and covering various 'key' points in time up until the London Bombings of 2005. Had London become sentient I think this might have been a bit more gripping overall to be honest with you! What this book is, is a compilation of extracts from various people in various walks of life from various times in the history of London.

Jon E. Lewis is the author of numerous books in the Autobiography series including England: The Autobiography, London: The Autobiography and The Autobiography of the British Soldier.

The book, "London: The Autobiography," is not a book to sit down and read cover to cover (or not for most people, probably.) It is however a fabulous resource for historical fiction writers, degree candidates, and tourists.

It is organized by time period. Within each time period, selected letters, newspaper articles, and maps give the essence of the period to the reader in a first-hand account of everything from Roman graffiti to a "Hanging at Tyburn" (by Samuel Richardson).

This 500+ page book is a treasure trove of historical details and authentic voices. Terrific resource, but again, not something with a plot and characters to follow from event to event like "Slammerkin" or "Kill-Grief."

For anyone needing to experience London's history this is a great collection. From writing a history paper to creating a romance novel, it's an excellent, firsthand account from people of another age. The one downside is it doesn't focus as much on certain periods as I would like it, too, but that's a strictly personal preference.

I am a bit of an Anglophile and while you may not pick up this book and give it the same type of attention you would a novel it is a great spontaneous read, every now and then, or just to skip around and enjoy it. It is without a doubt a great scholarly source of the two cities...thats right, read and learn, read and learn.

This book reads like an encyclopedia. The author certainly knows his history. Not much on the leading figures of each age. Not much life to the dry facts, but as others have written , it is comprehensive.
