Review of 'Rivers of London' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

So I absolutely adored this comic, the perfect compliment to the PC Peter Grant series.

One thing I have always loved about the PC Peter Grant series is that it describes a London that I feel like I really know. It's diverse and place of many different cultures, not just in the people, but the locations too and Ben does a great job of capturing that in this comic, much like in the novel.

The story is gripping and fits well with the novels, and there's a few shorts in the end which show a bit more detail around some of the characters lives. Which is kinda funny and shows insight that you don't really get in the novels.

This is going to be one of those comics I recommend to everyone I think. Then again the whole universe is so maybe I'm biased.

Bon, j'avais écrit un long texte, mais une sauvegarde loupée a tout détruit. Je résume donc.
On suit ici un narrateur qui entre dans la brigade surnaturelle de la police de Londres. il y enquête en parallèle sur plusieurs .... affaires. ces affaires mettent évidement à mal sa vision rationaliste du monde, mais pas ses importantes capacités intellectuelles (il y a plusieurs passages où j'ai eu l'impression que le type était vraiment bien plus brillant qu'un policier habituel). Ces enquêtes se passent plus ou moins bien. Et si le rythme de l'enquête est parfois un peu bancal, il y dans le ton de l'écriture un côté assez plaisant qui donne bien envie de lire la suite.
