Read in December, 2009

The followup to 84 Charing Cross Road, this book is almost as good (I'd give it 4-1/2 stars if I could). It details how Helene FINALLY makes it to London to visit friends she has made through her letters to Marks & Co., and also fans of her book about those letters. Since I lived in London for 6 months as a student, I relished reading about Helene's adventures and site visits and experiences. It is also a satisfying fullfillment to Helene's craving (and mine for that matter) for all things English and literary and London.
