I'm honestly not sure what I would have made of this book if I had read it stand alone. I read the omnibus editions of this, which has blurred the lines on where exactly the first one ends.

Hopefully they'll grow on me. I own the first few so I've every reason to continue reading. :-)

And if they don't work for you, plenty of other books out there to read!

Indeed! :-)
Agree with the sentiment that it failed to rub me the right way--it wasn't that there were things I hated; I just didn't care. I read through book 3, I think, and then lost interest.

I just finished the second in the series early this morning, and liked it better than the first; the narrative seemed more focused, less meandering. I still came away with some of the same feeling of indifference as I did with the first, but *maybe* the series is beginning to gain a bit of traction with me. We'll see if I make it past the third. But now, on to 'Broken Homes'. :-)
Woo-woo! Aaronovich!
