    eBook Ben Aaronovitch ´ Rivers of London ePUB å Rivers of PDF/EPUB ² ´ rivers book, london kindle, Rivers of free, Rivers of London ePUBGreat 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 that someone references Tolkien Newton and The Last Airbender all in one book If you don't know anything at all about London Brittish slang or culture other than the last three decades of American history this book might stretch you a little bit You might occationally have to absorb some information learn a new word or two and figure things out from context clues

    eBook Ben Aaronovitch ´ Rivers of London ePUB å Rivers of PDF/EPUB ² ´ rivers book, london kindle, Rivers of free, Rivers of London ePUBWell I'm always looking for a great Urban fantasy book series and this one is another one I'll be following with joy Very much in the style of Harry Dresden and my other fave the Alex Verus series This series is set in modern day London and features a black male lead character who's a cop and finds himself drafted into the magical investigation unit arm of the police I love the sensibility of this book it's incredibly dark at the same time uippy The worldbuilding is very interesting as well and the characters are fun to follow I will be reading as soon as I can get my hands on it

    eBook Ben Aaronovitch ´ Rivers of London ePUB å Rivers of PDF/EPUB ² ´ rivers book, london kindle, Rivers of free, Rivers of London ePUBI'm giving this top marks for an UF for several reasons1 Plain enjoyment This one should be obvious but it doesn't always work even with a lot of other titles I respect across the board I may love bits and pieces of them but then you come across writing that is a breeze to fall into and enjoy throughout and then you know you've got a real winner on your hands That's this one2 Geeky rather a loser London Police Constable with a bit of a new magical talent a heavy steeping of modern sff culture and an even heavier steeping of police procedural and depth of characterization It feels real and I just love this guy3 It's not light on the Londonite scene This is great grounding and full of great humor and history bringing in some of the weirdest tidbits of the past centuries like the proverbial grab bag and shaking it about a bit and giving us a hell of a weird novel It's a total blastAny one of these reasons should

    eBook Ben Aaronovitch ´ Rivers of London ePUB å Rivers of PDF/EPUB ² ´ rivers book, london kindle, Rivers of free, Rivers of London ePUBMidnight 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 Even deeper it’s the everyday lives of Britons not all Northern European either It was so refreshing to have a hero who is mixed race but seen as black by some; and to others ethnically uncertain He couldn’t get on the tube without getting nervous looks from some people who had made up their mind what his place in their world was wi
