I finished it! 829 pages.
I don't even remember when I started reading it but today I finally finished London by Edward Rutherford. I've been reading it during my lunch break for what feels like a year! It is a historical fiction work of all the people who have lived in London and contributed in their small way. All the way from the Druids and ancient Celtic people to modern Londoners. It actually was about twenty or more short stories in one.
Now what to read next?
Here are my choices:
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Dreaming the Eagle by Manda Scott
I could finish reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens
or one that Jay got me called; The Mad Monk of Gidleigh by Michael Jecks
