I have always struggled with Ackroyd's books - mainly his fiction, though - and this non-fiction was no exception. I always get this feeling there underneath the surface (no pun intended) there is another, more interesting, book struggling to get out. A slightly wilder or looser book. "London Under" is very well-written but for such a subterranean book, it does skirt the surface an awful lot.
