The first third or so of the book is brilliant, extremely funny and well written with a caustic eye on the subtleties and stupidities of modern corporate life. The rest of the book then becomes more adventure story and escapades, which is not really the author's strengths and the second part or so could have definitely benefited from some better and stricter editing. However, there are good moments throughout. I particularly loved Geoffrey, the talking robotic snake, who was a hoot even if one of his colleagues, a vicious squirrel, was somewhat less friendly. I was also looking forward to meeting Luci the robot bear who was mentioned in the story but unfortunately we never got to meet her. In fact a whole book by the author revolving around an assorted cast of strange robotic animals would have great potential to be very funny. As it is, the robots are minor characters with the two main characters being two slightly dim, and sometimes cowardly, senior technicians in the corporation, MEH - great name that. Definitely worth getting for the first third of the book but even the rest is readable and sometimes amusing.
