That said, a reasonably competent 14-year-old boy could have written this book. The jokes are obvious, the humor & situations forced. I picked this up hoping for a pale shadow of the humor by other masters such as Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams - and Gardner falls seriously short of this mark. He may be compared to the latter (and worst) efforts of Robert Aspirin - you know the ones I mean. There is no sparkling wit, startling plot developments or well-drawn characters with defined & consistent motivations. It's a parody of an oft-lampooned genre.
His style is unremarkable, his storytelling facile & pedestrian. The idea itself is a good one - I just wish a more gifted writer worked this materiel than Mr. Gardner.
It's not a terrible book, just so completely unremarkable & badly paced that you really should skip it unless you are already a devoted Gardner fan.
