It's an easy read but I didn't find it particularly amusing, certainly not laugh out loud. As the book reached its denouement I was thinking what it might be (correctly as it turns out) and how this could end up being such a great book. But in truth I found it a bit disappointing with a few unanswered questions (unless I missed something) which is not how I like a book to leave me feeling.
Still I am glad I read it and having commuted to London for a couple of years it did bring back some memories.
Bleeding London is packed with amusing insights into historical London. However, the best moments are the author's own observations about walks, conversations and obsessive behavior.
A little over-complicated, but certainly worthwhile read nonetheless.
Perfect timing to commemorate the launch of the Royal Photogtaphic Society (London Region) project of the same name to have every street in London (all 73,000 of them) photographed by Londoners! The very streets that one of the main characters in the book, Stuart London, walked during Geoff's brilliant tale of retribution - and a lot more. No spoilers here. Go read it. It wasn't a Whitbread Prize nominee for nothing.
I downloaded this for my Kindle after joining the photo project [...] which has been inspired by the character Stuart London's urge to walk every street in the A-Z. I thought I'd identify with this character the most, but I found him to be a bit of a weed, I loved the Mick character though, he's all heart and violence with a strong moral code he discovers a love of the streets of London after arriving in the city to attempt to put right a wrong. It's an easy book to read, and had me laughing out loud in several places. Brilliant book, and now I'm working my way through Geoff Nicholson's other works.
