Rivers of London

I picked this as a simple read after a heavy non-fiction. I’d had it recommended to me and so thought I’d give it a whirl. It is essentially a police procedural in a fantasy version of London. For me, it didn’t quite come off. It was fairly mundane and the fantasy aspects just didn’t gel together. It felt as if it had been edited to within an inch of its life, no doubt to make it into a fast reading page turner and I do wonder if a more fleshed out version exists somewhere.

Either way, a middle of the road story at best, a bit like an average episode of the Doctor Who reboots stretched into an entire book. There’s a lot of other books in the series as I understand but I don’t think I’ll be giving them a read.
