The Follycast Episode 11: What Abigail Did That Summer

In this month’s episode…

We conclude our look at the three Rivers Of London novellas by Ben Aaronovitch that have been published so far, with the (at time of recording) recently published What Abigail Did That Summer.

With Peter and Beverly away in Herefordshire investigating unicorn-related child adbuctions, Abigail has adventures on and around Hampstead Heath, assisted by her friend Simon and a band of talking foxes.

Of the three novellas this generates the most debate on the pod. Do these novellas set during earlier gaps in the Rivers timeline lack a sense of jeopardy?  How successful is Ben Aaronovitch writing as a teenage girl? How many cheese puffs out of five will we give it?

Next episode we come bang up to date with the most recent main novel, False Value.


Hosted by Margaret Holborn and Richard Marks, with Jan Trott and Jennie Beck
