really liked it

It's another British satire, but how could I not love a book that made that one time I read the libretto of the Ring Cycle NOT a totally useless waste of time? (I only read that one so I could understand what was going on in those Rackham illustrations. I was a weird kid. And a weird college student.)

Anyway, it's funny, and it falls a little outside of the more formulaic Tom Holt novels. The other Holt readers I know like his office novels better, but this one remains my favorite. And not just 'cause of the talking birds.
