Book Review: Thames

The Thames: Sacred RiverThe Thames: Sacred River by Peter Ackroyd
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Ugh.  Less a history than a listing.  No footnotes.  No bibliography.  No depth.  If I knew the details of the history of England as it relates to the Thames, maybe I would have loved this book for putting it all in one place.  As it stands, I read it because I wanted to know more about the history and got merely a listing of interesting facts that that I found less than interesting because most of the time I did not have the requisite backstory to put these facts in the correct context.
