Darker than expected
on 8 October 2013
I am half-way through this book and thoroughly enjoying it. To me it seems more insightful/honest than the TV series (which I also enjoy immensely, but in a different way). This book strikes a nerve and does not pull any punches. Do not expect the lovely comfort-blanket feeling of the series, but rather a cast of hardened characters stumbling through the city. At time it is quite seedy and you can almost taste the hangovers... Much, much better than the froth I was expecting, but also much darker.
