it was ok
Read in August, 2011

This was disappointing. Ackroyd fails to bring true life to his subject, and even fails to bring excitement to so interesting a topic as the construction of the 'Tube'. He even fails, in his analysis of literature that has made use of the Underground, to make reference to Gaiman's NEVERWHERE or Simmons's DROOD.

Jeanne I was thinking about Neverwhere for most of the book, too.
