The characters are well-developed and layered, in spite of a very narrow-minded first-person narrator. They go through their own struggles and move easily between realism and cartoon motion. The setting is brilliantly subversive, and the ending...I can't talk about it. It's amazing. Also, as a person with a counselling degree and plenty of knowledge about self help, this book was too deliciously satirical and on the mark not to enjoy.
The only criticism I have is that it's a bit expository and some readers might not like the political stuff. Me, I thrive on that.
So, for brilliant and perfectly-tuned prose, ripping satire, and a superhero story you'll never forget, look no further. This book is a must-read. Faust's other books are also fantastic, and should be next on your list.
