Who likes naked Vikings Raise your handI'm of two minds on this book On the one hand there are uite a few great ideas with the complications of surrounding witches with a humungous incompetent bureaucratic machine especially when it turns out that they can do a lot of time travel Not only that but I was a huge fan of the acronyms and the lingo speak especially when a costume party gets told as if it's a major military op or when a certain Lay of Wal Mart is written I was even mightily surprised at how much I enjoyed the day to day operations of DODO as the entire bureaucratic nightmare went on op after op in the past but what really stole the show was the labyrinthine plot that underlay the fabric of time and finance Or chronofinance Or let's just call them Fuggers and be done with it What didn't I like so much Well it's not that I actually hated anything about this book but the uality of the wit within the conversations was lacking for what should have been a straight satiresffantasy full of half successful bumbling alphabet soup American agencies as they get into trouble with witches The running gags could have been a lot subtle I felt like the intention behind this novel was to be accessible to just about everyone to have realistic everyday MC's with normal human failings and urges to feel warm amidst all these cool ideas and the basic incompetence porn of the bureaucracy but my investment in Mel or Tristan wasn't that steep I found myself treating the whole organization as the main character and in that regards I had a great time The Rise and Fall of DODO kinda gave it away Who's the main character DODO of course Things really got interesting for me when we were in the minutia of the time travel and the revealing of the strands of plots within plots that span over centuries and I had a great time with all of thatI think this novel is a hit and miss As a satire it tries a bit too hard as a character novel it lacks As an idea novel it starts with a decent premise and then it gets uite complicated and that eventually tickled me to death Certain scenes were brilliant and laugh out loud funnyBut I've read a lot of time travel books I've even read a lot of time travel with witches books This one is only averageThat's not to say I didn't have a good time though Because I did I just wouldn't dare rank this all that high among themUnfortunately by the end I didn't think this was uite as good as Stephenson's Reamde and that happened to be my least favorite of his works I'm a huge fanboy too I can't say anything about Nicole Galland because this was the first of hers that I've readIf I had to make a guess though the plot the acronyms and the nicely weird stuff as all Neal I could be wrong Probably am But those felt like him
