The Rook, Audible Version (2012) Daniel O’Malley narrated by Susan Duerden

Myfanwy Thomas awakens in a park, surrounded by bodies, with no idea who she is.

I really do like this story a lot. It’s so dryly funny.

The meeting with the people from accounting proved spectacularly uninteresting as Myfanwy learned how cheaply one could surreptitiously remove plague-infected bodies and dissect them.

What Thurow had done was in the best traditions of the British Empire: she had simultaneously discovered a species and gone to war with it.

And the narration is wonderful. I very much enjoyed the voices and how, despite all the dialog, it was relatively easy to keep people separate.

This is a very fun book, and I highly recommend it.
Rating: 9/10
