Student Book Reviews: The Story of the London Underground

Book Review - The Story of the London Underground

The Story of the London Underground
Book review by Edward Clark

Author: David Long
Genre: Historical Fiction

This book is about the invention of underground, community spirit and providing a service to the people of london. When the overground becomes too busy, Charles Pearson wonders whether an underground railway network may provide a solution.

The history of the London Underground spans over a hundred of years and my favourite facts are:

  1. in 1940, some tube stations were used to provide shelter from air raids;
  2. in 1940, objects (artifacts) from the British Museum were stored in parts of the Piccadilly Line tunnel.

I give this book a four out of five stars rating.
