    On par with the rest of the series though not a favourite No Bob Howard no Mo O'Brian and a good thing too since they'd be much too powerful by now I found it somewhat short and the ending a smidge abrupt though

    The latest in Stross' Lovecraftian horrorspy thrillerbureaucracy com Laundry Files series again gives us a new point of view character this time vampire and former banker Alex Schwartz to whom I instantly warmed simply because he's another Alex S But that's only one of the reasons I enjoyed it considerably than its rather wonky predecessor The Annihilation Score And to say any than that gets us into spoiler territory but

review The Nightmare Stacks

Ht of telling his parents that he's lost his old job let alone them finding out about his 'condition' is causing Alex anxiety than learning how to live as a vampire secret agent preparing to confront multiple apocalypsesHis only saving grac. Very weak start very strong middle reasonably strong endThe GoodStross knows how to create an alien species He is good at it at making them convincingly alien and weird and yet operate both within the limits of our understanding and the constraints of the setting The xenofictional aspects are some of the best parts of the bookStross also knows how to write a big multi faceted action seuence to cap off the book and he organizes it well There are a lot of moving parts but you never feel lostCharacterization is solid I adored Agent First plot is solid language is very goodThe BadHonestly the first hundred pages nearly had me give up the book Now I follow Stross s blog as well and he has a tendency to come off as a kind of Grumpy Old Man despite being just past fifty He has opinions and he tends to shove them into his work and it s always tiresome though how much varies The Nightmare Stacks isn t as bad as the Armageddon Score or Apocalypse Codex in that regard but still eye rolling In any case earlier books of the Laundry Files it wasn t too bad at least in part because the protagonist is a fairly fun and pleasant geek type The protagonist of the Nightmare Stacks Alex is not really that fun to read He s a bitter young nebbish and there s just not much enjoyment in reading him be bitter for a hundred pages mind Alex has reason to be unhappy but that doesn t make it funThat said the book improves sharply once the second viewpoint character is introduced Agent First our elven princessConclusionTo my mind the Laundry Series hit its peak with books 3 and 4 before sliding somewhat bumpily downhill in Books 5 desperately uneven pacing and 6 extreme case of Grumpy Old Man ism Book 7 the Nightmare Stacks is somewhere in the middle Not uite as awesome as the Fuller Memorandum not as annoying as the Rhesus Chart Good enough that I ll be buying the next book when it comes out anyway
