Bad Monkeys

Matt Ruff, Bad Monkeys, Bloomsbury

Lots of good words have been said about this book including some from Neal Stephenson himself - not that this book is a huge doorstop.

What we have is a world where incorrigibly not nice people are called Bad Monkeys by an organisation who tracks them by super-sophisticated means and kills them on a regular basis.

The Bad Monkeys have an organisation as well and in this story, which races around the place at a great rate, we are kept guessing as to who is who and what's where until the final pages.

It's a fun read.
