This travel guide, which includes a book and map, is aptly classified as travel/history/art. Author Robert Wayne includes traditional as well as little-known tidbits about royal sights in London. The prompts, directions, and warnings about crossing the street are wise and clever additions. Narrator Joel Godard's excellent delivery is perfect since many listeners will probably be using the guide as they see the real thing. Wisely, Godard does not have a British accent since many Americans have difficulty understanding (some even refuse to listen!), and clarity is important as tourists make their way around this glorious city. IN CONTEXT should be a welcome addition for even seasoned and knowledgeable travelers. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
