really liked it
bookshelves: humor, realistic-fiction

I really enjoyed this book, but it was very different from what I expected. This is a very funny book, but being funny is not its main point, and that is where, I think, the marketing people have blundered slightly. The best way I can describe it is a musical analogy: Mr. Murray uses P. G. Wodehouse-like orchestration in conjunction with Russian lit-like harmonies. Great characters and quite spectacularly enjoyable writing.
