    1. I read this book as research for a novel of my own. It contained a lot of information and anecdotes, but the structure made it difficult to find what I needed. It would benefit greatly from an index.

    2. Brilliant, well-researched book about the history of London's Hatton Garden and nearby streets. If you love Charles Dickens, you will find some interesting facts about the places and the streets described in his books, which really existed or even exist today. There is a lot more stuff which I found extremely interesting about the hidden River Fleet, Little Italy, Ely's Place, the spooky Bleeding Heart Yard, the slums of Saffron Hill, the second oldest pub in London The Ye Olde Mitre, terrifying [...]

    3. Great stories, history and the jewellers' chats, scrap book, reportage and photographs. Psychogeography as defined by Joseph Hart; "a whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the urban landscape."

    4. Download the accompanying app - fascinating. Many memories of working next door to Hatton Garden on Farringdon road coming flooding back. Certainly my favourite part of London. A pleasure to read - for me it's all about the facts, hidden worlds, history and anecdotes that bring this book and what it's about, alive, not the writing style (which for me was perfectly satisfactory). Recommended read, especially to anyone who knows that area of London.

    5. I think in order to appreciate this book you have to be all right with Rachel Lichtenstein's narrative style. I really enjoyed it, although I felt like one chapter was sort of unnecessary (anyone who has read it can probably guess which one). All in all, though, it's a great book for anyone interested in the geographical, cultural and personal history of Hatton Garden, Holborn, Farringdon and Clerkenwell.

    6. Disappointing. Yeah, stories are good, but the composition is too simplistic and it is way too traditional in the mould of "I've met so and so and they have told me so and so". Shame, because there are very many rich seams to be mined here
