The Furthest Station

2 Oct

Weird bollocks is happening on the Metropolitan Underground line. People are being harrassed by ghosts of people past. Peter Grant, Thomas Nightingale, Abigail Kamara, and Jaget Kumar sally forth to de-weird the bollocks.

Thus is the offering “The Furthest Station” by Ben Aaronovitch, the latest in the Rivers of London series.

This novella is delightful and funny. It gives us an update on Abigail’s progress at the Folly, and also gives us some lovely backstory for Jaget.

I am old enough to remember when books of this length were called novels, not novellas, so I wasn’t worried by the length. I have seen some complaints it was too short. It’s a nice way occupy yourself for an hour or so.

Ben has given us somethings to look forward to in future works in a nice, self contained package.

My favourite book of 2017 so far.
