By Judah on November 13, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
An overabundance of dialogue got in the way of the story. I found myself skimming long passages and didn't enjoy the book. At the ending, I was only glad it was over (finally). The aliens reminded me of stuffy British aristocrats, so if you like that type of historical novel, you might enjoy this. Humor was very dry, but present.

I'm a critical reader. Check my other reviews, go ahead, I'll wait.

See? I don't gush about books.

These books, the trilogy, are hilarious. The writing is sharp and on time, the characters are developed and you will laugh out loud while reading them.

This is part one of a three novel sequence (House of shards, rock of ages) that, taken together, amuse and satisfy. There is homage to "The Saint", there is humor, clever dialogue, and, as in all REALLY good humorous writing, some cogent points made about humanity.

The first thing that strikes you when starting this book is the pace at wich WJW leads you through his witty plot, not leaving your mind at rest untill you have finished the book... then leaving you with a craving for more. And a sequel of this book would be like "la crême de la crême"
