The big question is: Is the book funny? Shame on you for asking. Yes, it's hilarious. I was constantly laughing and rereading passages for friends throughout the book. The only negative comment I have is that it reads like Swartzwelder didn't really have a plan for the book. I frequently imagined Swartzwelder typing at his computer and then asking himself "Ok, what now?" That being said, it's still funny. This isn't the kind of book that asks you to suspend your disbelief. You're taken along for a ride that doesn't make sense, and it doesn't particularly matter. It's fun for all the right Swartzweldian reasons.
For the most part I thought this was a fun and entertaining novel. There were a few brief scenes here and there that seemed too stupid to be funny, but overall the Swartzwelder's humor was pretty consistent in this book until the end. As I mentioned earlier, the story becomes real dumb toward the end and it isn't very funny. I think anyone who's enjoyed Swartzwelder's other books will also enjoy this one, but anyone else who reads it might be disappointed. They might like it at first, but they'll be disappointed in how the story ends.

One of the funnier Swartzwelder novels. Much like everything he does, expect to laugh all the way through.Published 12 months ago by J Mascis
