really liked it
Read from February 29 to March 10, 2012

The style - Steven Brust is writing as a translator of a (fictional) historian of his fictional universe - made me laugh out repeately - then became very wearisome - then made me laugh out loud again. The story itself - first of a trilogy of the Viscount of Adrilankha - fills in a lot of the backstory of many of the characters in his earlier (but set later in "history") Vlad Taltos books.
... And if that is at all confusing, then Steven Brust is *much* too confusing for you.
