      Many Londoners were certain that the fire was a dreadful judgment–God's wrath visited at last on a sinful earth. The book describes in detail the chemistry and behavior of firestorms, making it easy to understand why anyone might have felt that way–especially when the melting leaden roof of St. Paul's Cathedral rained boiling droplets down Reviews:   No sooner was the plague so abated in London that the inhabitants began to return to their habitations, than a most dreadful fire broke out in the city, and raged as if it had commission to devour everything that was in its way. On the second of September, , this dismal fire broke out at a baker's shop in Pudding-lane by Fish-street, in the lower part of the city, near Thames-street.

      The book covers the time from the start of the fire to the ending of it, how the people reacted, and he gives a very nice chapter about fires in general, how a fire of this size behaves. Overall, the book seems very historically accurate and brings to life how miserable an event the Great Fire of London must've s: 9.
