Here are the voices of London - rich and poor, native and immigrant, women and men. From the woman whose voice announces the stations on the London Underground to the man who plants the trees along Oxford Street; from a Pakistani currency trader to a Guardsman at Buckingham Palace - together, these voices paint a vivid, epic and wholly fresh portrait of 21st Century London.

There are over 80 stories in the book, you need more than just a few voices being recycled over and over again, some of their attempts at accents also weren't very convincing you could tell it was the same person as before just putting on a rather poor voice. This is the one way this book could have been improved.
