3.0 out of 5 stars OK but I didn't like the principle protagonist., 7 Oct 2013
This review is from: Dream London (Paperback)
To be honest here I loved the idea, the premise promised a huge tale and knowing the type of writing that Tony brought to his other books generated an absolute need to start this as soon as possible. So settling down with a huge mug of coffee I cracked the spine and got started.

All round the book was OK, however the main problem that I had was that I didn't like the lead character, I found him smug, a little hard to get a grip on and all round I didn't find a facet that I liked about him. It made the rest of the book hard to get through yet for this massive problem, I absolutely loved the inventiveness of the world. It felt rounded, had great imagination and had something to amaze round pretty much every corner. Yet for all that, not having a principle character that I got on with detracted from the rest of the book. Yes it had pace, yes it had some wonderful twists but missing that key ingredient really makes it hard to struggle through. A great shame.
