didn't get far, up there with some of the worst narration I've heard. No regard for phrasing or punctuation. Stories seemed ok from what I managed to listen to. read it yourself.

loved it. interesting format that works

inspiring book. glad I got as was a bit wary as books read by the author don't always work but Vassos as a reporter and broadcaster manages it. minor criticism is I couldn't always tell immediately when he was relating the interviews as kept same 'radio' voice.

Great follow up to book 1

Got book 1 as narrated by RC Bray and seemed an original story idea. Loved it so got this soon as it was released and haven't been dissapointed. Ideally think you need to have read/heard book 1 as although it's ten years later it refers so much to what has gone before. Roll on book 3

Like other reviewers Amazon also recommended as I liked Ben Aaronovich but Rivers of London it isn't. Much darker. Interesting but not quite what I expected even after reading other reviews. Enjoyed enough not to exchange but big cliff hanger at the end is very anoying but I didn't engage with the characters enough so probably won't get book 2 to see how it ends.

Brilliant funny story that defies description

Well written and comments around political correctness had me laughing outloud. Not a big fan of authors reading their own books but excellent naration by Yahtsee Croshaw makes the characters come to life.

Excellent follow up to first book

Great second book if not better than first. David Monteath does a brilliant job of bringing the characters to life. Book 3 already to go and 4 and 5 in wish list

Enjoyed but not enough to get book 2 unless it's on offer! Good narration so worth checking out other books by Joe Jameson.

Amazing and original

Not a big fan of author naration but Yahtzee is the exception! get over the slow start as once extra characters are introduced story flies.

Sounded great but just didn't get on with it

Clearly alot of others loved it but not for me and couldn't finish. Great how he turned his life around but came over to me as 'look how good I am'. Not a big fan of authors reading their own books either, very rarely works and sounded quite flat.

Slow start and nearly gave up and returned for credit but improved as went along. Didn't enjoy as much as book 1 but overall a good development of the tale.
