Moon Over Soho (Ben Aaronovitch)


I loved Moon Over Soho. It seemed better paced and was less bloody than Rivers of London. The characters consolidated and we learned more about Nightingale, Molly and about Peter himself. There are laugh out-loud funny bits and moments of pure pathos (Nightingale carving ALL those names...) and Toby the terrier is in fine form. When I first read reviews of Rivers of London I asked friends if it was at all DWJ-esque. The answer was "No", but *I* think it is. Like DWJ BA flinches not from the probable consequences of character action, and also excels in showing humanity, non-humanity and hybrids. The narrator does a wonderful job of the audio book. I'm hanging out for Book 3
