Rivers of London
Rivers of London | Ben Aaronovitch
The Sunday Times bestselling novel now comes with an extra brand new story that has P/C Peter Grant investigating the ghosts of another era, another London, another games.My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England. Now I'm a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden . . . and there's something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair. The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it's falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

Books 113 & 114/2021 ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 & ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Audiobooks

I first read these in 2015 and gave them both 5 stars. I have just listened to the audiobooks (which are well narrated) but I'm not feeling as enamoured with them so have revised ratings.

1: I love Ben Aaronovitch‘s Rivers of London series.
2: Someone already mentioned this, but I love that they‘re set in places I know or could visit, but they have a supernatural twist to them.
3: Charleston. There probably already is something, but I don‘t know the genre well enough to know what it would be.

#MidnightRiot #BenAaronovitch

Peter Grant is a constable on probation. He dreams of being a detective on London‘s Metro Police. DCI Thomas Nightingale uses magic to solve crime and likes the fact that Peter is getting information about murder from a ghost. This is a witty and twisting urban fantasy that uses imagination to help solve crime. Interesting characters and unique plot kept the pages turning. Looking forward to Book 2 and recommend.

Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 9mo

Finished our first book of 2021! Not what I expected but enjoyable still. There were 2 major plots running through the book - the investigation of a murder and also the underlying story of the Rivers of London, the name of the series, the original title of the book. Probably why I had some trouble staying focused but I‘ll definitely go for the next book in the set. I‘ll give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ because I waited so long to read it and wasn‘t let down 😊⬇️

The whole plot seemed as if conjured from thin air, the clues and interrogations didn't make much sense. Everything was kind of tied together in the end but the whole process of getting there was not enjoyable at all. I lacked world building; the introduction of the characters, magic, vampires, rivers being people... all of it felt thrown in without any particular reason. All in all it's not a bad a book but it's not great either.

This is a great idea, @Andrew65 !

I really enjoyed this first book of the Rivers of London series. It‘s urban fantasy, set in London, and reminded me a lot of the Matthew Swift series. Aside from a few instances of unnecessary female objectification, overall this was a nice little supernatural mystery. My biggest pet peeves were the title change between the UK and US editions and the atrocious cover on the copy that showed up from my library hold (guess which is which?!).

Ruthiella Yes, agree the US cover is awful! 😐 14mo

It‘s time to adapt! 📕👉🏻🎥

1. As long as I know there is a book, I try and read it first. Sometimes I don‘t know, like with Jurassic Park 😂
2. Holes, that‘s the most faithful book to movie adaptation I‘ve ever seen. And I loved it!
3. 👆🏻 So far, everyone involved in this appears to be a fan of the source material, so I‘m stoked!

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Since I enjoy movies as much as books and books are usually better than the movie, I watch the movie first most of the time. I've been disappointed when I read the book first (I'm looking at you School Ties & Miss Peregrine). Is the tagged book #1 of the series? I've been looking at it for a long time and haven't pulled the trigger yet. 1y
ozma.of.oz @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It is the first! It‘s title outside of the US is Rivers of London, which is also the series title. It‘s a little rough, but good fun. And they get progressively better. And if you like audiobooks at all, I can not recommend them enough! The narrator is brilliant! ❤️ 1y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Thanks! I just commented on someone else's post that some of my favorite series started with a so-so first book. I don't mind audiobooks, but I don't listen to enough of them to pay for a service. I'll check the library and if I'm super intrigued there is always a trial run! 1y
ozma.of.oz @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The library is where I managed to get the first two books! After the second one, I ended up just buying the res today the series immediately! 😅 And trial runs are great! Hope you manage to find it! 1y

The book goes by "Rivers of London" and "Midnight Riot".

This book seems like it is in a genre all its own. It is a crime novel, but it also has supernatural elements woven throughout. The only other book series that I know of which may even come close is the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. The Rivers of London series is an eight-book series, but I only read the first three books before getting bored. I would recommend this book, however; it is very well-written and quite funny. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Julia Fullerton-Batten, “Bathers at Tower Bridge.” - What a romp! Midnight Riot is a book that accretes, adding layers & chipping away to glimpse layers underneath. Glad #bookspin finally made me tackle this. Peter Grant is too stoic for words, but the speed with which he accepts his new world helps the reader get acclimated as well.

I wanted to check out the german audioplay adaptation of the Peter Grant novels for a while now, and I should have followed my instincts and postponed indefinetly... it really loses his charm, the narrator really doesn''t seem to GET peter and there's so many cultural jokes that noticably just don't translate. Besides some really weird pronunciation choices... so: if possible, go for the original! #lostintranslation

#WyrdAndWonder Day 2: ‘start here‘

There‘s as many gateways to fantasy as there are fantasy books, but today I‘m plugging for Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. Neverwhere meets The Bill. PC Grant gets seconded to a unit the Met will never admit exists after an odd death in Covent Garden. Urban mythology, plenty of snark and at times pitch black developments as Grant tries to bring modern policing methods to supernatural crime. Great stuff.

TheAromaofBooks Sounds like my kind of book!! 2y

This was my killscene, and I was pissed with this plot twist. I'm not much of a fan of police procedurals, and maybe if I was I'd feel differently here, but I really liked how the character Leslie was presented as so utterly competent at her job, in contrast to Peter with his other skills, and to have her now minimized to damsel to be rescued stops me cold. Bailing at 70%.

esurient Pros: POC main character, yes please give me more of those; the rivers concept and secret magic underlayer were really cool; and I loved the based-in-real-history setting. 2y
esurient Cons (beyond the above): don't especially like the main character, and that does not bode well for a series. 2y
esurient Enraging (but first, backstory: my spouse loves this series and gave me spoilers, by my request, for the later books): To learn that Leslie eventually switches to subservient antagonist in a by-any-means-necessary attempt to un-disfigure her face. Competent, dedicated public servant goes full evil because she wants to feel pretty again, wtf?! Welp, I'm out. 2y

The portrayal of river deities was interesting, but the rest of the magical world was severely underexplored. I liked how the character's family background and cop training were portrayed, but I didn't like that he had the snarky, lustful, impulsive brain of a teenage boy. WHY did his mentor give him so much responsibility??? I'll pass on the rest of the series.

Can't wait to see how Peter Grant's powers evolve throughout the books. Glad I went out on a limb and bought the complete series. Very much looking forward to continuing this series.

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. I love this book; I love this series; I even love Peter twattering on about architecture, which I know some people kvetch about (can‘t defend the sex scenes, but it‘s not like they‘re anywhere near the level of Morrisey‘s barrel-rolling titties, so crack on Aaronovitch.

Is there anything better than devouring a book only to realize that it is just the first in a series? What could be better?!

Will you enjoy this book as much as I did? Possibly. Did you grow up on a steady diet of cozy mysteries, London procedurals, gothic heroines and PBS Mystery & Masterpiece Theater? Does the following unholy mash-up appeal to you: Dorothy Sayers + Luther + Penny Dreadful? Yes, you say? Then Peter Grant, your guide, awaits!

Mogoeg Do you consider 'Hot Fuzz' to be an underrated masterpiece of British cinema? Do you enjoy telling people that you knew who John Boyega and Jody Whittaker were BEFORE they were Finn from Star Wars and Dr. Who because you own Attack the Block on BluRay? Then this is *definitely* the book for you. 2y

I generally don‘t read books in translation after I‘ve read the original but I was quite curious to check out the Audible adaptation. I really enjoyed the way they presented the story (some off the sound effects and music choices are hilarious) although I still prefer the English audio books. Will probably listen to the next one, too.

julesG Also, books in translation can make me furious. Something always gets lost in translation. 2y
Kaddele Sounds great! Where do I sign up? 2y
Kaddele And yes, translations can be incredibly frustrating. With films and audio it‘s mainly because German versions usually have everybody use the same accent - which is my main issue with these audios. The original reading is so rich with accents and varieties that this version just seems a bit bland in that respect. 2y

Another bk that's been sat in a pile for some time and i think it qualifies as it's a police procedural with wizards and ghosts. It was a real romp which i enjoyed even though supernatural crime isn't normally my cup of tea. Despite owing a lot to harry p i think i will read more and certainly im glad i eventually picked it up.

Great fantasy. I love that the Goddess Mother Thames is a Nigerian lady. I must say the audiobook is superb because all the accents are great. I also like that the protagonist who becomes a magician apprentice is not the usual white boy. I just wish the author had not made Newton the guy who discovered how magic works; because even though I am a scientist and love physics, Newton the man was a real nasty piece of work
