Just a review to remind myself of why I liked this book:

The Fuller Memorandum details the break-up of a cultist organization and a Laundry leak, we also get to know TEAPOT and Angleton's story. We see Mo and Bob as a married couple, and Bob on his way *up*. Good work, to my mind a generic Laundry book if there ever was one. Nice read nonetheless. ( )

I quite enjoyed this book. It takes place a couple years after the events of The Jennifer Morgue, and once again Howard is drawn into a dangerous and complex web of intrigue by his superiors. Armed with only his shiny new smartphone, Bob Howard is forced to face off against the undead, ancient horrors, and worst of all, the bureaucrats within the Laundry itself.

I think this book may even have flowed better than The Jennifer Morgue, and I was pleasantly surprised by the book overall. I was worried that Stross wouldn't be able to keep it entertaining without being able to parody the Bond mythos like he did in the previous book, but the book was fast-paced, well-written and quite funny.

He still does the occasional POV shift this time, but he does a better job of making it flow within the structure of the story. ( )

This is another solid entry in the Laundry Files series. I really like this series's blend of spooky horror, self-deprecating humor, and technology-based magic. Mo has really come into her own by this book, and is a significant player in its plot from the beginning. It was cool that we found out what Angleton's deal is.The reveal of the final villain was a complete surprise to me! ( )

Highly recommended, particularly if you're a fan of the Dresden Files. They're not the same story, obviously, but they have certain affinities and similar tone. ( )

I've liked the previous books in this series, the Jennifer Morgue is pure genius - but this book, was a slog. The universe that is created is lots of fun, but this book took into a direction that was too dark. Outside of the Iphone turned into powerful spell generator, I found most of it quite depressing - from the tone (The End is Near), to what happened to Bob. The mysteries were quite easy to figure out, and I had certain character fingered as soon as the clues were presented. ( )

The Fuller Memorandum is not a perfect book, but there are more things I like than dislike about it. It’s definitely not a sequel that skulks in the shadows of its predecessors, trying to repeat what was done before; it’s braver, and branches out into more unfamiliar territory. And fails a little bit, but manages to get pounding on shore in the end.
