Brilliant and funny, but deeply disturbing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Jennifer Morgue: Book 2 in The Laundry Files (Kindle Edition)
Stross picks his influences carefully, and then researches them in greater depth than you might imagine, for a novel in this genre. The consequences he imagines, and the relationships between classes of beings based on the mythos engendered by Lovecraft and his contemporaries, is explored (I won't say "in depth", because that would be in bad taste). His Agency is just the sort of slightly grubby, poorly run organisation one would expect in a secret Government department: poorly funded, over-beaureaucratic and interacting badly with similar agencies of other governments.
His characters are funny, endearing and wonderfully well-rounded. His technical knowledge is intimidating. All respect to Mr. Stross!
I love this series.
