The Book Lover’s Guide to London

The Book Lover's Guide to London

The Book Lover’s Guide to London is an extensively researched guide to both authors and their literary characters’ connections to London. Organized by area, the book helpfully includes full-color photographs to supplement the text.

There are interesting stories here especially if you live in, or are planning to visit, London. It is also useful for authors using a particular area of London as a setting. However, there is a bit of a reference book tone. The entries are dry. They feel like an author’s note cards that haven’t been fully fleshed out to a finished book.

Overall, The Book Lover’s Guide to London is better for research than reading straight through. 3 stars.

Thanks to Pen & Sword and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
