it was amazing
Read in July, 2012

A colourful continuation of a fun and clever series. Ben Aaronovitch is creative with a fantastic eye for detail, capturing the world through the lens of a main character who happens to be a character of colour, the atmosphere and history of London, the trials and tribulations of being in the police, wonderful magical and supernatural world building, and the amusement of life, the universe, and everything. In addition, huge points for the character of Lesley, a female police officer full of determination who instead of just disappearing from the books after being a victim in book one (without giving away spoilers) joins the main character and his master even though she's meant to be on medical leave. We get to see how both she and the characters around her deal with what happened to her, but I absolutely love that neither her injuries nor her gender get her side-lined.
