Review of 'Faust Among Equals'

Faust Among Equals by Tom Holt

faust_among_equals.jpg Faust Among Equals is a satire of the whole Faust story including veiled attacks on corporate politics, DisneyLand, etc., etc. I found this book a fairly difficult read in that the puns and jokes seemed to often get in the way of the plot making it hard to follow. Perhaps it was the wordy prose in particular that caused this situation, hard to say. Anyway, a funny book with amusing characters worth a read.
