Publisher's Summary

Adam Buckley thinks he knows who it is, but has problems of his own to deal with. Damaged from a recent break-up, his narcolepsy worsening, he learns that his friends have become suicidally obsessed with finding insane, unexplored parts of London.

He glimpses figures in the subterranean gloom, half-recognized faces at parties to which he can't remeber being invited, indications of a life lived yet never remembered. As his confusion deepens, so too does the threat of violence. In peeling back so many of the city's faces, he fears that the skull beneath its skin might well be known to him.

Painful

Would you try another book from Conrad Williams and/or Piers Gibbon?

possibly

Would you ever listen to anything by Conrad Williams again?

Not likely....it was like listening to a British movie preview announcer. He has a nice voice, but he remains in movie preview announcer mode throughout the piece, without changing, making it quite monotonous.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It had interesting bits, but the narration made it impossible to finish as an audio book. I'll finish the book, actually reading the prose.

Great story mangled by narrator

What did you like best about London Revenant? What did you like least?

The horror images were vivid even through the monotone delivery.

What other book might you compare London Revenant to, and why?

It tackles the underworld of London a little like King Rat by China Mieville.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It sounded like the narrator, Piers Gibbon, had never read the book before the performance. The delivery was either a slow monotone or inappropriately inflected making the reader have to concentrate to see the words behind the awkward voice.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

As a film it would depend on the director, it needs a moody gritty feel, but yes I'd like to see it as a movie.

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry to say I think people should avoid this audiobook and read the print book, its much easier than trying to see the story behind the narration.
