A bit disappointing to be honest
on 9 November 2010
I investigated this book because I read a quote from it in Mike Parker's Map Addict and thought it sounded interesting to say the least. The reviews on here seemed to support it (except one) so I bought it. Without spoiling the plot it's basically a story about three people whose lives cross because of their three separate 'missions' that they seek to achieve in the 'confines' of London.
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.
