Aaronovitch, Ben. Broken Homes. Rivers of London No. 4. Gollancz, 2013.
The Rivers of London series continues to develop, dare I say, like a flourishing tree. Leslie, her face still a mess, is learning magic. She and her partner Peter Grant find two bodies involving, no surprise, murder by magic. The Faceless Man is back, along with a bunch of old practitioners called the “Little Crocodiles.” Along the way we visit some strange architecture and a goblins’ market. We also learn why you should cry when a tree is cut down. ( )

I don't even know what to say! I am so gobsmacked right now.

Look, everyone that I talked to said the same thing. This is slow as anything. I was bored while reading and maybe fell asleep around the 60 percent mark. Things didn't make a lot of sense to me and I was tired of Peter feeling torn between Lesley (til he wasn't) and Beverly (eh I don't blame him for not getting involved with the river goddesses). But the ending that comes I did not see coming. And it's heartbreaking. And now I wonder what is going to happen next.

"Broken Homes" has Peter and company on the tail of the Faceless Man and also looking into a housing estate that maybe has ties to some magic.

This really wasn't that interesting to me. I don't know, fourth book syndrome. Things just meandered along. We get some peeks at Beverly and the rest of the river goddesses, but once again they are not in this one as much as they were in book #1.

Peter and Lesley are still practicing with Nightingale and yes we get some more details about Nightingale's family and school days. Still not enough for me, but enough to wet your appetite.

I don't know, I found Peter not as centered in this book. He was all over the place. A romantic pairing that I called in the last book rears it's head here and that seemed to give Peter some peace.

The writing was typical Aaronovitch, humor mixed in all over. However, I will complain a bit. We would have Peter as narrator tell you something and a line later, but little did I know what was going to happen next, and something would get explained in a line or two. Either show us it, or don't keep talking to us about things that you don't set up in the book.

As I said, the ending is definitely a game-changer. I wonder what happens next to Peter. ( )

The fourth installment of Aaronovitch's spell slinging police procedurals carries on the excitement and momentum, building the setting and characters. Probably my favourite 'urban fantasy' series, along with Charlie Stross' Laundry books, definitely helped by the London setting, the strength of the characterisation and twisted humour..Great stuff.

I'm really enjoying this series, and each book has pulled me in more. I've also grown attached to the characters quite a bit, and the ending of this book both delighted and disgusted me. I'm expecting there to be another twist, but if there isn't and the character's motivations are really as stated, I'm going to be quite disappointed. I can't wait to read more to find out. ( )

The problem of the house is a problem of the epoch. The equilibrium of society today depends upon it. Architecture has for its first duty, in this period of renewal, that of bringing about a revision of values, a revision of the constituent elements of the house. We must create the mass production spirit.


Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier)
