London by Edward Rutherfurd

London is an epic novel, over 1200 pages of the history of London from the earliest times.London by Edward Rutherfurd

In it we travel through time in the company of a group of families, starting off with just one of them, and then as the times get more complex more families come in. It’s a really clever way to tell the story of a city, and although the sections don’t perfectly flow into each other (there are few years in gaps) they are chronological.

It is a gripping tale, but not actually all that fast-paced. So I’ve got a bit bored at around 400 pages. But I may well pick it up again sometime.
