Switching back and forth between these tonight.
I hate to say this but it must be said:
This volume is utter crap.
PC Peter Grant is being interviewed in the last part of the process to becoming a DCI. Four of his cases are being reviewed, one of which makes no sense at all. The single sheet comics are lame.
Aaronovitch needs to stop producing pablum like comics, novellas, and short stories and give us a real novel to sink our teeth into.
Can‘t wait for November!
The cheek of putting the detective's exam, something long awaited in the books, into a GN, is impressive. If you're looking for a new jumping on point for Rivers of London, this works pretty well as PC Peter Grant outlines four cases to prove he deserves to become DC Grant.
Also, can we just shout out to Aaronovitch for creating a brilliant, diverse cast of regulars?
Last few #bookmail arrivals here. Two comic preorders (I have already read the Lumberjane), one awesome-sounding family history nonfiction on the amazon book coupon day, and both Crazy a Rich Asians, which I just read and loved, and the next book in the series, because I have problems with self control when buying books. 🤷♀️ #bookhaul
