    Rivers of London Review ï 109 Rivers of LondonGreat book Urban fantasy You should read it Why Here's why 1 It's witty 2 It's not cliché 3 It's smart 4 It's set in London and written by someone who obviously knows London 5 The main character has a great voice 5 The language is great See below 6 It hasn't been dumbed down for the American audience Well okay They did change the title in the US from Rivers of London to Midnight Riot That was a shame But they left a lot of good stuff in I don't think I've ever read anything else published in the US that has as much legitimate British slang in it It was lovely 7 The author is obviously a proper geek It's rare

    Rivers of London Review ï 109 Rivers of Londoncity people be like first of all i wasn't too keen on what happens to lesley but i guess you can't make an omelette without—ducks flung shoe anywaythis painfully white guy i used to know read this book too and he said aaronovitch's handling of race annoyed him because while there is awesomeness like various london water goddesses being nigerians aaronovitch himself is not nigerian and people who speak authoritatively about races not their own are typically embarrassing and distastefuland it's true mostly that's grossusuallybut somehow i got through this book and all the way through the next one in the series without once being offended by that stuffi noted it; read up on the author's background; but mostly i was just like hah yeah all the nigerians i ever met were totally like thati think a certain thing happens to you when you live in a huge multicultural city like london or nyc that entitles you to a kind of ba

    Rivers of London Review ï 109 Rivers of LondonMidnight Riot is the kind of book that people like me absolute anglophile and devoted BBC lover couldn’t help but like The humor and the texture to the narrative in this book reads delightfully British but in a fashion that suggests that England isn’t just Jane Austen or Charles Dickens It’s also Doctor Who Blake’s Seven Being Human Law and Order UK and Luther It’s upper crust and working class It’s a mix of past and present Eve
