Yes, I enjoyed the book but I also didn't expect too much.
The ending was satisfying but not particularly profound.
The challenge with this book is that nothing ever happened.
Listening to this was worth the time.
Yes. It's a blast. I'm sure I missed a lot.
The opening chapter when we are introduced to China's vision of London was extraordinary.
John Lee constantly reminded me of the British-ness of the story. He was excellent.
There's a world out there you haven't yet seen.
If you've already every good contemporary fantasy novel, such as anything by China Mieville, Susanna Clarke, or Richard K. Morgan, and you have to have something to read, and you hate re-reading, go ahead and read this one. It's a bad book but at least the writing is competent.
I wish more of China Mieville's work was Audibilized. In lieu of that, Martin Amis' new one looks good.
Yes. He's an excellent narrator.
If I were the editor I would have dropped the book entirely and saved all of us some time and grief.
Mark Hodder, if he exists and is not a group of marketing experts, may end up being a good writer one day. He has decent style and some imagination. He needs to learn to tell a story, to really do the research, and not cater to small fan groups.
