Description

Here are the voices of London - rich and poor, native and immigrant, women and men. From the woman whose voice announces the stations on the London Underground to the man who plants the trees along Oxford Street; from a Pakistani currency trader to a Guardsman at Buckingham Palace - together, these voices paint a vivid, epic and wholly fresh portrait of 21st Century London.

Craig Taylor, an acclaimed journalist, playwright, and writer, spent five years exploring the city and listening to its residents to create this amazingly rich portrait of London.

An interesting look at what makes London tick.

Having lived near London over the last 10 years, now living on Canada's West Coast near the author's origin, I really enjoyed this book.I learned a lot about many facets of life in London that normally you take for granted (the tube train announcer, for example)
It was fun to move onto each new experience and reminiscence and I looked forward to listen to what was coming next
The narrators were spot on and often very amusing.
A really good listen

Fascinating Perspectives!

This book has rekindled the determination I have to move to London one day. It is a spectacularly insightful collection of perspectives surrounding and pervading this world of a city. The narrators all performed brilliantly. I finished listening to this book inspired not only to be in London longterm to experience it from my own perspective, but to be aware of and understanding of the perspectives of all of the different kinds of people throughout the city and the world.

Great audiobook for commutes

What's better than listening to an audiobook about Londoners while watching Londoners on your commute? Great collection of stories.

Wenn Sie von London fasziniert sind...

... und sich ein wenig dort auskennen, dann ist dieses Hörbuch ein Weg, um mehr über die britische Metropole zu erfahren. Der Autor fächert ein Kaleidoskop an Geschichten auf und das ist allemal interessanter als ein Reiseführer. Der Kauf hat sich wirklich gelohnt.
