Anmeldelser

«[Spreads] enthusiasm by inviting the reader to join in a game of admiration.»

Christopher Howse, Telegraph

«However spectacular the book's photographs, it's the author's prowess as a phrase-maker that keeps you turning the pages»

Richard Morrison, The Times

«A most beautiful book . . . full of information. I'd like to travel to every one of the stations. Simon Jenkins is a blessing to the nation, keeping an eye on our buildings and making sure they are not forgotten or neglected.»

Claire Tomalin

«Jenkins has unearthed a lot of gems. The photography is stunning»

Christian Wolmar, Spectator

«This is a cracker . . . a beautiful book»

Chris Evans

«Simon Jenkins extols the virtues of 100 of them, as well as offering a brief history of the rise, fall and rise again of Britain's railways. And he is the perfect person to do so. Excellent, enticing.»

Gavin Stamp, Evening Standard

«This glorious and utterly essential guide to Britain's best railway stations is also a history of some of the remarkable - but often undersung - landmarks to our social history»

The Bookseller

«Masterly, perhaps a masterpiece»

Independent, Books of the Year on 'England's Thousand Best Churches'

«Every house in England should have a copy of this book»

Auberon Waugh on 'England's Thousand Best Churches', Literary Review, Book of the Century

«Any passably cultured inhabitant of the British Isles should ask for, say, three or four copies of this book»

Max Hastings on 'England's Thousand Best Houses', Sunday Telegraph

«Full of stand-out facts . . . absolutely fascinating»

Richard Bacon on 'A Short History of England', BBC Radio 2

«Full of the good judgements one might hope for from such a sensible and readable commentator, and they alone are worth perusing for pleasure and food for thought»

Michael Wood on 'A Short History of England', New Statesman

«Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain's railways. Beautifully illustrated with colour photos, this is an uplifting exploration of our social history»

The Guardian
