Review by: Patrick Fanning on May 10, 2013 :
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The authors are correct when they say it is in the Vonnegut vein--it's smart, funny, and skewers modern culture with the same deftness that Kurt demonstrated. Worth reading for just the pithy one-liners that pepper the text, but holds together as a satisfying satiric yarn all the way through.
