Dexter likes to be involved in my reading time. #doggiedreamingdexter
Tried to read this book a couple years ago but couldn't get into it. Figured I'd give it another try.
A good instalment of the Rivers of London series. Aaronovitch always does his research and cleverly uses history to shape his stories. I like the characters and how the plot flows from one book to the next. The only thing with this book it felt a little disjointed in places and I often felt like I'd skipped a page as suddenly the subject changed or the action began. For that reason it is a 3.5 🌟 review for this book.

This one disappointed me. The beginning was slow and soft, but the premise kept me going. The middle picked up to a disappointing ending. Readers never get a chance to know the real personality behind the main character, nor her true background. By having it written in reverse, the introductions to characters and setting were too late, though it did help with the mystery aspect. It revealed one character particularly well, but that was about it.
Finally finished this one... can‘t say I‘d recommend it.
I was put off by the narrator - I didn‘t like not knowing what to believe and what was unreal. Basically Amber is in a coma, and we, the readers, hear her thoughts as she tries to piece her life back together in her mind.
We also experience visitors who may or may not actually be there.
I found it confusing and not as entertaining as I had hoped it would be. So just a “meh” rating.
