This book was pretty fun, but it wasn’t Pratchett’s best. I’m not even sure how involved in it he was.
It’s a fun non-fiction book about Victorian London, but with a couple of references to Pratchett’s standalone novel, Dodger. I prefer his Discworld stuff, but I also find Victorian London fascinating and so I don’t have too many complaints.
All in all, it reminded me of Terry Deary’s Horrible Histories books. It had the same kind of humour to it and some fascinating information about what life was like for Victorian Londoners. It was pretty grim by all accounts, and if nothing else, this book made me glad to live the life I have.
