I did read every page but unfortunately all I recall was a sense of disappointment and perhaps having to labour a little through it.

I thought it would feature a lot of London and a lot of Werewolves for some reason ... and I just do not remember either as I look at the cover.

The Werewolves of London has E V E R Y T H I N G: ancient gods, werewolves, astral projection, human transcendence- it's all here in ONE HELL of a story!
If you love speculative fiction and find the smart ones to be your favorites, check this crazy novel out.

I really did try to follow this book, but I failed miserably. I mean, it's great if you like to read literary prose-style books in which a lot of words are used but nothing is really said, and this is one of them. Great for those that are used to authors of the 1800s style of writing.

It was soo boring I have decided not to finish it.
I like the fact that the werewolves have teeth, yet I fail to see why I should care about any of the characters.

And it didn't feel like London. It didn't feel like anything really.

Entirely too tedious. Didn't care about the characters, and nothing happened. Just talk, talk, talk.

Great writing and story. I did read it many years ago so my memory might be false.
