The Delirium Brief, Charles Stross
The Delirium Brief - Charles Stross

Whoah! I wasn't expecting that!

 

Initially I was a little disappointed because the much heralded return of BoB Howard as narrator was not as much as fun as anticipated: his distinctive voice seems to have largely disappeared. To some extent this is understandable since he's ten years older than when he first appeared, has seen an awful lot of horror, terror, death and destruction and has also ceased to be entirely human - but his nutso forms of expression were a great part of his appeal.

 

Later revelations and plot developments were so unexpected, shocking and game changing in terms of the series as a whole that, in fact, this book re-invigorates a series that was flagging and makes me more excited for the next volume than I've been for quite some time. Props to Stross for taking the series alarmingly far outside its comfort zone.

Everything's gone hyper-dimensionally pear-shaped.

Well, I suppose it's a spy agency so they had to go rogue eventually...

Bob has lost his voice. Or, more accurately, Stross has lost Bob's distinctive voice, which is disappointing as it's a big factor in the fun of these books.

#1 - Delirium stories by Lauren Oliver
Delirium Stories: Hana, Annabel, and Raven - Lauren Oliver

I first read Delirium in 2014 and had wanted to read this collection of novellas ever since. I'm glad I did because it was a nice addition to the series. However, I guess I should probably have re-read the series first because I had forgotten so many things about this world. I remember really enjoying the Delirium series and I just add it to my "re-read TBR"!

 

It was refreshing to see from other characters' perspectives and I know what happened here were important events from the original series but I just did not remember a lot.

 

It was a pleasant and short first read of the year!
