It has been brought to my attention that when it comes to reviewing books, I may be a little lenient when it comes to scoring. This comes down to the fact that I sort of have a different scoring system for certain authors; which is to say, if a book gets anything above 9. I like looking at the good in books, especially if a book simply entertains me.
Moon Over Soho is the second in his Rivers of London series. It continues the story of Peter Grant, Detective Constable in the British Police, and the first trainee wizard in fifty years. In discussing Aaronovitch with my girlfriend — a literary type of a much higher calibre than me and with more literary understanding in her pinky than I have in my whole body — we discussed the question of whether he comes close to Kate Griffin when it comes to writing an urban magic story in London.
I have to agree that, yes, Griffin has a lot over Aaronovitch, but Griffin is one of those authors who I rank in their own category, along with writers like Steven Erikson, J. Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Brandon Sanderson. So setting aside Griffin and her contemporaries, in my mind at least, we have in Aaronovitch an author who has a beautiful sense of the city that his characters call home.
The casual acceptance of magic in this world irked my girlfriend, and continued to please me. I love the fact that there is almost no tiresome passages where one character has to explain the rules of magic, once again, to the latest eye witness or superior who stumbles in their way.
Rather, magic is revealed to those that need to know, and everyone else pretty much ignores it. Which makes sense, when you consider the often used belief that the human mind fills in a lot of the details of things we do not understand. Sadly, this book is let down with utterly atrocious editing. Still, when a book is published to the world, you expect the grammatical mistakes to be non-existent, or at least found only by those special few who understand English linguistics.
