Starter VillainStarter Villain by John Scalzi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scalzi did it again. Humor, smart SF commentary, and a classic "I can't believe my enemies are this stupid" storyline.

It starts out deceptively normal, but when news of his rich uncle's death evolves into one increasingly crazy situation after the next, we wind up with a great bond-villain smorgasbord that includes a great unionization of non-human assets, a realization that most billionaires are NOT all that smart, and a home run for anyone wanting some wholesome humor in their lives.

And, of course, there are the cats.

I loved this book. Easy, fun as hell, and delightful through and through.
