|I would recommend this book. It's quite longat over 1000 pages, but many of the chapters go rather quickly. It follows the development of the city of London, England through the lives of several intertwined families, and of course, Kings, Queens, dynasties and wars. London itself is the most fascinating character. If you want to learn some history and like good historical "thrillers," I would say this is foryou.
