Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Madness Of Angels (Matthew Swift Novels) (Paperback)
I bought this book because it was compared with Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. They are both about a magical version of London, but I don't think there is much else in common. This book contains over-long descriptions and tedious conversations that don't advance the plot. The characters have a tendency to give speeches and the song of the blue angels started to get on my nerves. I only got to the end through an effort of will and found myself skipping over many sections. I would have enjoyed it more if the book had been half as long.

I completely agree with your review. I struggled to finish this book as well. I didn't skip sections but it did take me almost 1 year to finish - I read many other more interesting books in between!
