Syrup - Max Barry Max Barry does his thing and does it well. He offers an imaginative storyline, strange and intriguing characters and produces a book oozing with comedic wit. This is the second book of his that I have read (thanks to Arianna) and I have enjoyed them both. I would put this author and all his books on my "to read" list. So far the books have been consistent in style and quality. I would recommend this book to someone who likes finding humor in the corporate world, likes quirky characters and wants a book that is unique and adventurous.
