This book is a collection of very short stories surrounding the 40 times that the River Thames froze over and allowed for activities to actually take place on the river.

It was slightly entertaining but seemed to get repetitive toward the end.  I can see where it could have been better if the small stories had been expanded.  Not recommended.

I was a very disappointed in this book.  It was so beautiful from the outside, but inside, it lacked the depth of stories that I was looking forward to.
