Book Report: Master of Formalities

I enjoyed the humor in this book.  It was filled with a constant barrage of unfortunate situations capitalizing on all the comedic opportunities.  The story itself didn’t grab me as strongly as the Magic 2.0 books did, but I slogged through it.  There wasn’t anything that I would say was wrong with the book, but I think I found the unfortunate situations to be somewhat frustrating and I empathetically shared in the disappointment the characters experienced rather than laughing at their misfortunes.

The audio performance was fantastic though.  Some of the more egregiously offensive characters were made lovable through stellar vocal work.

I worked through the book pretty quickly, which is usually a sign of how much I am enjoying it.  Though, it’s possible that I was just trying to get through it so that I could fit another novel in before Thrawn comes out later this month.
