However, I initially struggled to get into it. Loved the mad cap Victorian absurdist antics - but found it too disjointed to engage with at first. It didn't help that the murderous, callous and narcissistic protagonist is a little hard to connect with too.
I'm glad I stuck with it though! Although at points earlier in the prose it felt like Malki! was trying too hard to be weird, it began to assume a rhythm as the story became more and more a sweeping large scale adventure.
As the story progresses, you even begin to develop an empathy for the protagonist antihero, and by the end, I was positively cheering on his murders.
I recommend reading this book - it becomes more and more charming and I am already looking forward to a reread now that the character is so familiar to me.
Malki! is now firmly cemented on my Instabuy list and I look forward to anything else he produces.
Review edited: After some dialog with the (very patient) author, many errors have been fixed. Book is now twice as awesome.
