I don't know what to say... I really like this book, for as cheesy as it turned out. I almost want to rewrite it, to make it uglier, less mainstream. It might have made a popular kid's movie in the eighties, but alas, it's lost it's commercial appeal. The best thing for it would be to give it a splash of mud and turn it over to an art house. Luc Besson could fix it, I'm sure.
