Bad Monkeys

Bad Monkeys - Matt Ruff I have to say I like Matt Ruff more with ever novel (this is my 3rd, leaving one more to be read as things stand right now). _Bad Monkeys_, like _Fool on the Hill_ and _Set This House in Order_, has psychological themes, but where Fool and House are more serious in their approach, _Monkeys_ is more of a romp, and less 'touching' for lack of a better term.These comparisons aside, Ruff's usual quality writing is present: interesting characters with whom most readers will be able to identify in one way or another, unexpected twists, and excellent prose. In many ways _Monkeys_ is previous Ruff with a bit of Christopher Moore mixed in - which is no bad thing, I like Moore a great deal.
