Reviews

"Marvellously readable" * Daily Mail *
"The story of London's great fire is one of the set-pieces of English history. But the strength of Adrian Tinniswood's measured narrative lies in the fresh emphasis he places on its fallout" -- Andrew Holgate * Sunday Times *
"This book is more than just a gripping account of the great fire...with immense skill, Adrian Tinniswood uncovers the cross-currents of special interests that the disaster brought into play, many of which lend the story an almost contemporary feel" -- Christopher Hudson * Daily Mail *
"Admirably researched and highly evocative" -- Nicholas Seddon * Spectator *
"Even Pepys is too near and involved an observer to convey the full magnitude of the catastrophe. For that we need an historian, and Adrian Tinniswood's new account of the Great Fire rises impressively to the challenge" -- John Adamson * Sunday Telegraph *
