I loved them The way author pokes fun at a number of things sometimes subtly and sometimes in your face can be really entertaining Plus no preachiness and that's always a good thing in my bookI'll leave a couple of uotes here mostly Suruk who is as hilarious as alwaysSuruk a fan of music‘I have several of Miss Tuppence’s records If possible I should like to get a souvenir from her’ ‘Oh?’ Smith said remembering the sort of souvenirs that grinned from Suruk’s mantelpiece ‘That was interesting’ he said ‘I got Lily Tuppence’s autograph and she got to keep her skull’ Rhianna in a fantasy costume 'This is me cold in a metal bikini If I’d have wanted a piece of chain up my ass I’d have sat on a bathplug ‘Suruk’ he said ‘would you mind accompanying Rhianna and Carveth? This place is full of disreputable men’ ‘I shall protect them from her’ Suruk promised ‘Perhaps I shall pick up some fishnets in the process’‘Give me only a needle and thread’ Suruk said ‘I have acuired holes’

T defend the Empire and civilize the stuffing out of a horde of bloodthirsty lemming men which would be easy were it not for a sinister robotics company a Ghast general with a fondness for genetic engineering and an ancient brotherhood of Morris Dancers who may yet hold the key to victory Wrath of the Lemming Men is my favourite of the series so far This is without a doubt because of the focus on Suruk and his revenge uestinternal struggle for validation from his father A dream job of mine would be to be a xeno anthropologistsociologist so I was very pleased to receive information about Suruk’s culture as the last book had failed to provide enough to satisfy me such as how they reproduce and why they are considered male Suruk said it best when he explained that his people have no gender but Earth assigned his people pronouns This cleared up so much that had confused me about him but also dashed any hopes that he'd be my space boyfriend Oh well Perhaps it had been explained in the last book as Suruk’s culture was also a big focus but I read it on vacation I’m uite like Rihanna regarding my preferred mode of relaxation so I have trouble recalling what I read First and last time reading under the influence I may have to revisit God Emperor of Didcot Regarding the story at hand it follows the same patterntonegist of the previous two – it’s a zany homage to all things fantasy and sci fi as well as other bits of pop culture Given his photo it appears Toby Frost is probably 10 15 years old than me so there are references that I definitely missed but if you read or watch heavily in the genre you’ll get most of the jokesallusions There a ton of I’m assuming British references which go over my head as I am a lowly Canadian haha but I just ignore those It was great to see some character arcs Smith and his infernal inability to discuss his emotions was interesting but not belaboured I loved the bonding between Suruk and Polly so cute and I wish the section where Polly trains the other robots was way longer Polly’s relationships with Dreckett is fun but I wish Rihanna had a bit backstory Regarding women in the novel men outnumber women in the cast but I do like that Frost includes women in military or science positions dotted throughout such as Susan the beam gun operator I laughed uite a bit when Polly calls Isambard out on saying “men” all the time when referring to his crew as none of them are men Isambard is so hyperbolic in his masculinity – it’s clear his focus on sticking to his Victorian ideals of manliness hold him back at times In fact I would argue that his relationships with his crew who don't accept or actively combat his perception of what it means to be manly or heroic have made him a well rounded person I don't believe this is unintentional Well played Frost Vock and Number Eight were amusing villains who weren’t overdone and 462 is still kicking around but had less screen time which was nice I was worried that his repeated appearance as the villain would grow stale There was less humour in this one than the last two books as it focused on the action but the bits here and there kept the tone similar I did laugh out loud a couple of times and I thought the Jane Austen character was amazing and an interesting reference I didn't expect that in this series though perhaps I should have Frost seems to have a great balance of making fun of something but not tearing it apart Overall I want to read the next one right away but I have to hold back as there are only three left and I want to savour them
