    Cute and entertaining, but rife with typos, misspellings, and misuse of language. If we are going to publish our own books, we need better self-editing. I do not approve of the star rating system, so I have ignored it.

    An exquisite piece of futuristic writing. Much better than 99 percent of what you will find on the racks of most bookstores and better than 100 per cent of what you will find on the best seller lists.n
