Powerfully read, passionately written critique of colonialism. I shall no longer seek forgiveness but accept that I have been at fault, I will try to make the world a little better, because of this book.

What am I missing?

Is this supposed to be ironic? As the books drones on the people with gumption become less and less likeable as does Mr Offerman, Americans don’t do irony is proven in these pages. If you really want to see someone making a fast buck go to his woodworking outlet and wonder why people don’t see him coming.

After trying other suggestions to download book with no luck, I returned original that I managed to find on my PC audible app and re ordered book, now available on my iPhone, lesson for me is no more pre orders on Audible.

I suspect the book is very good, in fact back to Rivers of London at its best

Much like other Harry Hole storylines with usual reference to Jim Beam and soft rock music. Rebus is better

Everyone should read this book

As relevant today as it was in the 30's many of George's predictions came to pass so very definitely worth a read. Nothing predicts our future better than our past.

Thank you , I think my head is now better screwed on

I was endlessly disappointed by it

Is there any particular reason he played the game, the minute he signed up he was equally culpable. Just because you are told something is true doesn't mean it is. After all thousands of people around the world tonight will die but that does not make me upset as I have no idea of it. Why would a stranger causing another stranger grab my attention all he has made himself is just as much of a monster as the man in white. What a toaster!

What did you like most about Rivers of London?

The joy of reading a fantastical plot that at no point drags me down into the unpleasant reality of the vile acts, that's the way to do it!

What does Kobna Holdbrook-Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

An lovely accent

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Very funny

Who cares who dunnit

What was most disappointing about Karen Maitland’s story?

The characters snaked through a grey wet uninspiring landscape, much like the plot. I only wish the plague was faster on it's feet.

What did you like most about Shadows from Boot Hill?

L Ron writes fantastic pulp fiction, perfect setting for all the cowboy values and lots of rooting tooting action
