Classic 1722 account of the epidemic that ravaged England nearly 60 years earlier. Defoe used his considerable talents as a journalist and novelist to reconstructhistorically and fictionallythe Great Plague of London in 166465. Written as an eyewitness report, the novel abounds in memorable and realistic details.

This book had a great descriptive narrative of a horrible situation from someone there. The numbers supplied and the stories given in the different circumstances made the book believable and clear.
