    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBThis epic work really does bring history alive in your as Rutherford moves from chapter to chapter effortlessly tracing the history of the remarkable city London and 5 remarkable familiesThere is not a dull moment and this should really awaken any interest you may have in historyIncredible men and unforgettable often extremely sensual women enliven the pages of this work as you gain knowledge about England and in the last chapter the message of the book is described succinctlyThe rich tapestry of different people that formed the English CeltsRomansAnglesSaxonsJutesDanesNormans FlemishGerman and Italian merchants French Huguenots and in recent times the Irish and Jewish communities in London and other big citiesAs an archaeology Professor puts it at the end of the bookSo when we dig deep into the earth under our feet and fall all that is left of that man or woman I try to remember that what I am seeing and handling is a huge and endless co

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBA sprawling historical novel as big as London itself it was reuired reading before I went to study abroad and I've read it twice since Rutherford did an incredible amount of research and it all comes together beautifully The characters' family trees carry through the entire history of Britain pre Roman through WWII This book is so dear to my heart

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBThe third book of Rutherford's that I've read of this type Have previously read Sarum and Russka and this book pretty much followed those; nothing really surprising or extraordinary about this bookI suggest reading this book for of the historical facts than any sort of story telling As a history of London and England it's nice in that it's not too dry and involves a litt

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBI did not like this book and probably won't finish it though I'm 34 of the way through The author goes from life to life through the history of London and because it's such massive history is unable to give details about the characters and environments that I usually adore Because of this lack of detail I feel disconnected from the characters and the story I chose to read it after going to London and wishing I could learn about the historical day to day I think reading seperate books about different periods of the history perhaps specific biographies might satisfy me

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBUPDATE An author certainly can't cover every historical event concerning London in a single volume or perhaps even in a series of volumes However to me Rutherford completely skips over a vital part of London's history a cultural one that had a worldwide impact perhaps as much of an impact as other issues Before laughing out loud here me out the world is still reeling from the impact of London's Swinging 60's things such as fashion the sexual revolution music films class etc When I was a child there were two places North Carolina and London Agatha Christie the Beatles and haircuts etc

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBLondon stretches all the way from Roman times to the present The author tells stories at the most dramatic moments of that city's history leaping from Caesar's invasion to the Norman Conuest to the Great Fire to the Blitz with many stops in between London is ambitious and students

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBThis was like a cross between a history textbook and One Hundred Years of Solitude It's the history of London since before the Roman invasion till modern times told through life stories of generations upon generations of a few of the same families So 2000 Years of Solitude in London if you will I vaguely expected the book to rapidly gloss over the olden times and spend 80% of time on the Victorian era but it didn't Actually Rutherfurd paid a lot of detailed attention to the Middle Ages a topic I've long been curious about but only now delved into Since I haven't read many books about history London held a world of new and interesting information for me what lives were like for upper classes kings and working men the

    Paperback Ý London PDF/EPUB Ì london free, London PDFEPUBIt's odd to read a 1124 page novel and feel that it's too short This is not a haute literature novel but rather a sprawling ramble through the history of London the terrain and its people made accessible through a series of chronological tales told through the ages As with Sarum Mr Rutherfurd follows different families over the centuries with their stories intertwining due to coincidence marriage and friendship This book genre is terrific for learning little known facts such as the origins of words or how geography shapes human history and is not the sort of book to read for in depth explorations of personalities thoughts feelings angst etcetera just not that sort of literature It's been years since I visited London and London The Novel made me yearn to travel there once especially given what I learned in this book about the growth and layout of the city As for feeling that the book was too short it seems to me that Mr Rutherfurd sta
