Bad Monkeys - Matt Ruff I'd probably give this one 3.5 stars, or even 3.75, if I could, because I'm not quite sure it rises to "really liked it!" but I did like it better than the run of the mill things I give three stars.

I had no idea what to expect, and only chose this book because of the title - monkeys being an office mascot. I'm so glad I did, because not only did it feature some very bad monkeys, but also some quite up-to-no-good clowns. The only thing missing was a ventriloquist's dummy! The concept was highly amusing, and the author kept me one (or three) steps behind the whole way to the end of the wild (and gobstopping) ride.

If you like a quirky style (kind of Jasper Fforde channeling Tom Clancy} you might enjoy this one, too!
