Until this morning, Charlotte Pudding was almost happy with her life. Apart from her homicidal toaster, dead parents, and general ennui. Well, maybe not that happy. Either way, now that she’s on the run from a shadowy corporation, seeking the secrets of her own family history and tolerating the inanities of a retired god, things are looking a bit more interesting.

Funny sci fi
Engines of Empathy is a very funny book. It is set in a world where all the technology runs on empathetic energy and negative emotional can cause dysfunction in the relationship between a person and their gadgets. I really enjoy listening to this audiobook.

Dry Wit at its Best
The humor, and the cleverness of the story.
It's a bit hard to pick one! For me, the best parts were the ones that made me laugh out loud, and it's difficult to pick just one of those!
Charlotte Pudding. She's a great female lead :)
I wouldn't presume to try and write one of those for this. But really, if you mention empathic toasters, what more would you need?
I've read Paul Mannering's Tankbread as well as this, and love his writing. I really enjoyed the humor in this book as well as the lack of zombies :) He's now right up there with my favorite funny sci-fi authors.
