I am writing this review a bit prematurely as I am only half way through the book, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. The plot is goofy and humorously silly, the characters are rather one dimensional, and the writing is....well, I am sorry to say, weak. Of course, Philip [...]'s writing is weak as well and I love his stories. Still, the book moves along at an amusing pace and anyone looking for a light, spoof of commercial America as seen through the eyes of one "less than thirty-something" will have fun with it.....Perhaps, when I finish the book, I will come back and give it more stars....stay tuned or just go read it and support a young, new author, and a small press.
Presenting a consequential message for today's consumerist society packaged within a optimistic and humorous saga, the reader can experience a gripping battle between and evil manifested as toxic coffee served with a cherry on top.
