The Rook

The Rook - Daniel O'Malley This book could have been a 5 star read ... it falls short only (in my humble opinion) in the editing. Not the technical kind but the structural. Some passages are too long, others seem out of place or unnecessary at all.

But the story, the characters, the humor they are all superb. I think this is a book worth recommending ... it has great laugh-out-loud moments as well as great moments of suspense.
