A fun little novella that gives us an interesting mystery, more Abigail, and more Jaget! ❤️

Ghosts are coming down a train line with a message and then disappearing.

This is as clever and charming as any of the full novels. And it's always wonderful getting to see Peter's investigative abilities. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Ghosts on a train. Cousin Abigail is up to shenanigans as usual - such a fun character. Great series that I‘m trying to read as slowly as possible so that it lasts longer, but I‘m struggling. #wanttobinge

I found this story to be light but fun read. The mystery itself had a few twists & turns which was entertaining. There were further discussions about Abigail and her desire to learn magic. There might be more developing with her character in the next book in this series. I think that will be an interesting change for Grant and Nightingale to wrap their minds around.

Another fun read in the richly detailed world of Peter Grant, London police constable and investigator of the supernatural. Aaronovitch has a wonderful sense of humour and his narrator is self-deprecating and funny while giving us a full picture of everything he encounters. The whole series, and wonderfully narrated audibooks, are highly recommended! Start with Rivers of London to understand everything!

Kobna does an incredible job bringing this world to life over audio. I love Peter. He‘s my child. I will protect him at all costs. And now I need the next book because I‘m getting itchy.

🎧 Peter Grant and his neighbor‘s daughter, Abigail go ghost hunting on the Tube. What are the ghosts trying to tell them?

Much of the novella lacks lacks tension, i.e. no sense of urgency, though when the stakes *are* revealed, things move quickly. Aaronovitch does write himself into a bit of a corner though and I‘m not really convinced that he got out of it.

Kobna Holdbrook-Smith elevates this from a “So-So” to a “Pick.”

I expected not to like this one as much as the others in the series because it's 'only' a novella, but I was wrong! It has the same magical charm and doesn't feel as crammed as the last one. Nevertheless, I would have loved to see it as a full-length novel with an added subplot. I read it on the plane and finished it before we landed...

This novella features Peter Grant‘s teenage cousin Abigail and ghost hunting. There‘s a good mixture of magic and crime solving. My only complaint is about the footnotes. This was an ebook so footnotes are problematic. These footnotes were for the North American reader and in my opinion they were superfluous.

SandyW Yup... footnotes, tables, and charts are problematic in audiobooks. 1y
Dragon Thanks @SandyW 👍😀🐉 1y
rabbitprincess Maybe I'll order this one from a UK site to avoid having footnotes (assuming it's available in print and not just ebook). 1y

The first novella. I like this as a format, enabling Aaronovitch to explore smaller parts of London in the smaller format. I did think this would be more challenging as a jumping on point.

I‘m a long time fan of the fantasy genre, but I do love the depiction of everyday police grunt work: “When faced with complex and inexplicable circumstances, a modern police officer will fall back onto one of two basic policing approaches. Option one; call for back up, arrest everyone in the vicinity and sort it out down the nick. Or Option two; locate the nearest source of tea, sit everyone down and hope nobody‘s carrying a concealed weapon.”

Fernoppy Love it! I'm making my bookgroup read Rivers of London for our January book. I love this series so much I could eat it. 1y
quinas Me too! I was a bit sad that it wasn‘t a full length novel but I think that worked for the story. It made me hanker for more though. 1y

I really enjoyed this one, though i understand why it is just a novella and not a full fledged novel. Witty as always he's setting up a couple of fresh roots for new plot lines, a much needed break from the grand arch that started in book one and still hasn't got anywhere much. Today's case may have left a lot of questions unanswered, too, but i guess i wasn't in it for the whodunnit anyways, but for finally meeting Peter Grant again...#nerdlove

The latest in the Peter Grant series is just a novella but it‘s brilliant. Just the right amount of ghostly fantasticness for my tastes! Ghosts on the underground 👏👏👏 And I love his wizard wannabe cousin Abigail. I hope he‘s writing some more right now 🤞

A delightful palette cleanser! This is a novella so not as deep or detailed as usual but most definitely a fun romp revisiting our magical and criminal friends in the Peter Grant series.

Ben Aaronovitch's fantasy novella is an okay standalone read within the PETER GRANT universe that re-introduces Abigail Kamara (who I want to see more of in future books) and I enjoyed the interaction between Peter and Jaget but the plot itself meanders with time jumps robbing it of tension, an ending that lacks any explanation, Toby is underused and I just didn't feel as if this added anything to Peter's world.

THE FURTHEST STATION by Ben Aaronovitch is a contemporary fantasy novella set after the seventh book in his Rivers of London/Peter Grant series. While it's an entertaining book, it's not one of Aaronovitch's best works.

This hut the spot-a short, but fully developed, adventure, full of action, a bit of snark, and seeing Peter in his element. Would I have preferred a full novel? Sure-but if I can't have one, this works.
It's good to see this kind of case. Not just the serial killing, major magical threat, etc.-but the "smaller" stuff, too.
