I liked this story of an opera singer turned accountant (youll have to read the book to find out why Nolly changed his career, Im not telling!) turned extremely amateur private investigator who ends up in a very different world than the one he is used to.I liked Nolly himself, and some of the off-world characters were cool, if a little hard to visualize: like the Purry, a living blob of a robot that can translate conversations in four or five languages simultaneously and recreate any kind of music you might want to hear, thanks to the dozens of mouths scattered over his body.What was a little jarring to me reading this book was when Pohl mentioned various places or people that were around in 1988 but are gone now.

The World Trade Center, the Concorde, Johhny Carson, The Un-Cola Man. There are billions and billions of future readers who wont have a clue about why listening to Carl Sagan explaining the cosmos was so much fun.I am old enough to understand all of those references, but I can imagine plenty of people thinking WHO? And plenty more trying to understand that last sentence in the previous paragraph as well.

But no matter, Narabedla Ltd. is a fun read with an ending that I was not prepared for...it makes sense, but I still was not prepared for it.
