Book Five: Not Celiac

I read a book not about disease!

This time it was Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch, the second book in the Peter Grant series (the first being Rivers of London).

A bit mixed on this one: I still enjoyed the humor but there seemed to be less of it in this book. I also felt a bit more lost plot-wise (but less so pop-culture-wise, which was my problem in the first book). I'm sure that confusion wasn't helped when I stopped reading this book to read a whole other book before going back to this one again, but I think a fair part of it was also that there were two mysteries going on and not only did I have a tendency to mix up the victims of the two cases, I have no idea what happened in the second mystery. I think that second one is more of a series-arching mystery since there was a tiny tease of it mentioned in the first book but still. It threw me off.

Perhaps I am just not smart enough right now to read things with plot. Eh, I'll still read the next book in the series but I'll read another celiac book in the mean time.
