review for THE STONES OF LONDON so far

reviews so far:

Stories within stories tumble out like Russian dolls. By the end one has met many interesting characters and almost inadvertently absorbed vast amounts about the creation, buildings and streets of London…most entertaining…splendid, generous and engrossing book.’ Sunday Telegraph

Hollis holds these disparate elements together with skill, constructing with the stones of London a story that is much greater than the sum of it’s parts. . . .by the end The Stones of London develops into more that a history book. Literary Review

Finding new ways to tell the story of 2000 years of London is not easy, but Hollis has found an elegant solution by focusing on 12 buildings that exemplify 12 periods in the development of the city . . .Hollis has chosen his buildings well: their stories present an original perspective on London’s complex history.’ Sunday Times
