Well, that was different. It wasn't a book I couldn't put down. But still some charm was there. London was as stand alone character as any one of the people. I never was to London.and never wanted to go there. But after reading this book I'll go someday. I have something to say about sense of humor. It is there- witty and full of self irony. It's refreshing. I'm definitively going to read the next in the series.
