I'm ambivalent about this one. It . . . offers so many bits and pieces that don't get much time in the story, so I'm wondering if there are earlier books or will be later books on this place. I'm not entirely thrilled with it, the story is by turns slightly funny/clever and then becomes a bit scary/violent in startling ways for a book of this tone and type. Can't really recommend it. It wasn't absolutely awful or anything but I'd be hard pressed to talk this one up to an audience or think of anyone who'd particularly like this.
