Overview

Bad Monkeys: A Novel by Matt Ruff

Jane Charlotte has been arrested for murder.

She tells police that she is a member of a secret organization devoted to fighting evil; her division is called the Department for the Final Disposition of Irredeemable Persons—"Bad Monkeys" for short.

This confession earns Jane a trip to the jail's psychiatric wing, where a doctor attempts to determine whether she is lying, crazy—or playing a different game altogether. What follows is one of the most clever and gripping novels you'll ever read.

The only problem with this novel is that it ends too quickly. I wanted the story to continue on and on. The story is exciting and the characters were terrific. Highly recommend.

Not a bad way to spend a weekend.

After reading Set this House in order, was looking forward to Matt Ruff's new book. The book was a good read, but was not as captivating as his previous novel. The book does offer lots of twists, that you have to stay focused when reading. If you have never read a Matt Ruff novel, read Set this House in Order first.

Well played. Twists and turns from start to finish.

I really enjoyed this book although the ending was weaker then I expected. Still a fun read with great characters.

An interesting fantasy novel; full of fantastic powers, evil, misbehavior and confusion. A little disturbing, though.

I wish I could appropriately summarize this book to convince you to read it. No words could give this book justice. Just when you think you understand what is going on, this book sends you through a loophole. It's one fantastic mindblowing page turning novel which leaves you wondering if this is all Nods doing. All I can say is read the book, if for no other reason than just plain curiosity.

I thought this book was outstanding.  The fantastic weapons, the elements of the secret societies, and the wild action made for a great read.  One of the few books that I read straight through in one day.  Would love to see this as movie series with Matrix-like effect.s

Read in less than a day and enjoyed it thoroughly. Enough detail to keep it fast paced, but understood. Character development was handled appropriately for the type of story and didnt belabor points. Well done for what it is; a good day off from reality that will give you something to think about.

I had actually bought this before and loved it so much i lent it to my best friend, needless to say, he never returned it. Anyway, i bought it again hoping to read it because of its amazing story that kept me guessing and enjoying the ride for the whole time. Matt Ruff delivers a very thrilling and intelligent story, there aren't that many like this nowadays. Can't wait to read it and share it with my boyfriend so he can see what is was that made me so happy to finally have it in my hands again.

Truly enjoyed this odd little book. So now I have to go in search of sequels and other titles by this author.
