'Rivers of London' by Ben Aaronovitch [Book Review]

GollanczFest 2017 part 3

This continues on from my first post about the Gollancz Festival 2017.

The first panel was called: Who you gonna call? Ghostwriters! I eagerly awaited the panel as the line-up consisted of several authors that I love, plus a few I don’t know much about, a great mix. 679 more words


The Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

I really wanted to like Rivers of London. It came highly recommended by a friend and I was looking forward to reading it. It started off with a lot of promise but gradually I lost interest, I managed to keep going and finish the book but sadly I won’t be continuing with the series – it’s just not for me. 103 more words
