A surprise and welcome find
I know it’s shallow, but the artwork first attracted me to Rivers of London.
I am so grateful it did, what a fantastic story, I love alternate history and Aaronovitch has created a London we know, but with just enough of a twist to make it fresh and exciting.
I can’t wait to start the next in the series.
The portrayal of Nightingale however does make me think of Jacob Rees Mogg 😳😳
This is a story I know well, but still manages to stir the emotions even after all these years.
So listening to a a semi dramatised version was an interesting experience. Quite hammy in parts and really hammering home the jeopardy of the situation.
Overall done really well, although my biggest issue was the narrators pronunciation of many place and character names. He quite literally butchered many names, I mean calling Lord Chelmsford, Lord Kelmsford, that’s such an awful error. But maybe that’s just me?
Of course I’ll have to listen to the Rorkes Drift story now!!!
