Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Sausages by Tom Holt

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Sausages (J. W. Wells & Co., #7)Polly doesn’t mind work being mysteriously completed but coffee being stolen is different. Things become crazier when her office problems are related to a threat to all of existence. Can Polly unravel the truth before existence unravels?

Teasing about how humans act is one aspect of this story’s humor. For instance, “I think it’s [‘magic’] only a deadly secret because nobody’s found out how to get rich with it” (p.193). Humor is also found in absurd events such as chickens hotwiring a truck. Polly and most of the characters are non-adventurous types forced into facing craziness. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Sausages offers reluctant protagonists as well as insightful humor amidst absurd situations.
