London City of Disappearances characters ¿ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 'A book full of richness unexpected enticements short sharp shocks and breathtaking writing' Guardian Welcome to the real unauthorised London the disappeared the unapproved the u A low 4 stars but still a 4 So Sinclair called up every writer he knows gave them the subjects London and Disappearance and asked them to send him something So this isn t some organized decisive breakdown of london through the ages its a random collection of personal anecdotes biography history poem short story essay and other odds and ends I doubt than a couple of pieces were written specifically for this collectionThe mix of writing styles is uite cool although your bound to find one or two you can t stand Also if i was an english teacher grading these assignments a lot of people would be getting F s as many have very tenuous connections to the word Disappearance PThere is a lot to like here Literally a LOT this thing is really long I have an ebook but a hardcopy might be better its the sort of book you leave lying around and randomly open and readBut i do have some gripes both to do with Sinclair s editing He s made two attempts to add some sort of structure to this mess First he s corralled the pieces into various groupings based on their geographic location in London not the worst idea However in effect this has led to a very uneven reading experience as some groups are heavy on fact or fiction history or biography long entries or short ones etcThe other attempt at structure is a piece of ligament called the Gazetteer of Disappearances and Deletions a recurring piece that appears in each grouping Having some sort of repeating section sounds good This is made up of short entries mostly by either Sarah Wise who does what seems to be well researched historical bits or Michael Moorcock who does bullshit You see Moorcocks entries here are all fiction but presented as fact Now this might make sense to Sinclair oh look at the thin line between fact and fiction But for me this felt insulting to the reader insulting to Sarah Wise insulting to history and even insulting to Moorcock Especially since these entries are not just fictional but are references to other Moorcock stories making him seem like an underhanded self promoterAnyway that was my biggest problem apart from that its interesting stuff I mean most of the best parts are biographical or historical and with that sort of thing its not going to blow your mind or anything best you can say is oh that was very interesting lol
