This a book to get lost in. It’s one of those rare novels – like Gravity’s Rainbow, the Recognitions, Ulysses, the Waves, Satanic Verses – that holds your interest while surprising you with its beauty. It’s complex while at the same time simple, it blends genres – science fiction, romance, adventure, historical fiction – and invents a new style. Loosely based on Paradise Lost, the author has changed it from taking place in paradise to setting it in utopia, and just like how Milton made the devil...more
I was one of the lucky ones who won this book via Goodread's First Read giveaway. It took me a while to get into the book, at the time I won it I was in the middle of re-reading a long series. However, once I picked it up I had a hard time putting it down. It is a wonderful melding of genres that doesn't dissapoint.
I am sure my attempt to review will fall short of what is needed to truly understand how new and fresh and interesting this book is. A Science Fiction and Mythology mix presented with a satiric humor that is hilarious, sometimes profane, and always utterly entertaining.

Its dense and sometimes I found myself feeling very lost (I was going to try a plot summary, but I’m not sure I could). Also, there are a lot of made-up words, which adds to the confusion.
Then, there are parts where I knew exactly what wa...more
I've finally finished this big book and I have to say it was really worth it - what a funny, charming book. I'll admit, I didn't understand everything, but what I did catch was fascinating. This book is at times sexy, funny, crazy and intellectual. But, it is in investment - it took me a couple of months to finish it.

The characters are well laid out - you care about them - and they have quirks and issues. Joseph Moore is a tired, sad star who finally erupts and takes off. He becomes a weird adve...more
I poured through this book in two days and missed most of the crazy nuisances, but loved it still. I'm going to reread it cuase theres so much too it. The characters are crazy. The setting is crazy! It's a utopia and its so funny!
