Angelmaker (Vintage Contemporaries) - Nick Harkaway It's on the 5 side of 4.5, so I'll bump it up.If you thought [b:The Gone-Away World|3007704|The Gone-Away World |Nick Harkaway|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328322676s/3007704.jpg|3038235] was crazy, just wait til you get to this one. Doomsday bees, clockwork monks, sexy spies, London mobsters, a serial killer, and several lawyers are just the beginning of this little romp. It's, at times, as philosophically profound as the first novel and just as full of bravado, but this time it's all put to completely different use. Which is both good and bad. While there are some bumps in the early middle section (and I'm not talking about the fun bumps at Polly's house when the train goes by), it all wraps up rather spectacularly and that in and of itself is a feat when there are so many ends needing to be wrapped. Have some fun and try not to think too hard (except about the philosophical stuff). Much more at RB: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-sW
