💖Today’s post is a little book review. I hope you enjoy 💖
Rivers of London was a book I was recommended by my Dad and one that I was sceptical of reading. As someone who has an unhealthy addiction to Sherlock Holmes this book is of a similar genre but I tend to avoid books that are close to it.
However, I stand corrected. Although I am yet to buy a physical copy of this novel (I will be in the future) I have started to listen to it on audible and I am hooked.
Not only is it a mystery crime thriller it is also a fantasy book that leads you round the streets of London on the hunt for whatever magical creature is behind the killings.
One of the main reasons I think this book is so brilliant is that the locations it is set in you can visit and they will look the same as described throughout. Give or take a few little changes that have taken place. It is so easy to lose yourself in this book.
It’s set in all the places that I recognise through living in London or just outside of.
The book shows off the works of a truly talented author as it is never boring the scenes being described never drag and honestly you never know what is going to happen next.
10/10 would recommend this to anyone willing to read it.
I feel the lesson to learn here is never to judge a book by its cover. You may just be pleasantly surprised.
Have you read this series? If so what do you think? If not is it a book that you think you would read?
