This review is from: The Rhesus Chart: A Laundry Files novel (Kindle Edition)
Only 4 stars may be a bit unfair as arguably the best book(s) in the Laundry Files series deserve 5.5 stars! However, this is detectably a little behind "The Apocalypse Codex" for example. Still a great read, with some splendid ideas and set pieces. Stross has a lot of fun with the central idea - can't say much though for fear of spoilers. Long term character development also has some surprising twists, that nonetheless feel right. I just hope we don't have to wait quite so long for the next. The series is in strong shape. A no-brainer for fans who pre-ordered as I did. I wouldn't recommend first-time Laundry Files readers start with this though: you will lose some element of welcome surprise & indeed shock. Read them in order. I envy anybody who has not seen the series yet, and can look forward to all five in a row.
