Now I have never been a fan of the Harry Potter kind of fantasy..its just does not float my boat so to speak, but I have enjoyed the Rivers Of London which is a sort of mongrel novel made up of part real life police murder investigation and part apprentice wizard adventure.
It sounds a terrible mismatch of genres doesn't it? but the humour and detail within the writing is so entertaining, the story by first time writer Ben Aaronovitch, is a real page turner....if you are a fan of either kind of novel I would recommend you give it go
I particularly enjoyed this quote when Aaronovich described a difficult Chief Inspector
...like many Northerners with issues he moved to London as a cheap alternative to psychotherapy".......
Anyhow Chris managed the animals perfectly well. He was attacked by both male turkeys last night (I have never gotten to the bottom of just why they don't like him) but no blood was spilt....and he sorted Albert's apparent Chlamydia eye infection out at the vets without incident
Mind you he looks shattered with all the responsibility of it all
