I thought the culture war was a bit contrived and the author didn't do as much with it as he certainly could have... Furthermore, I felt that the usage of stereotypes in this book made sense in some aspects but didn't lend a "special" quality to this book. That being said, this book had excellent dialogue and a fast pace, and was a very quick and easy read. Did it make me think much? Not so much... As a more liberal person, I think I was already on board with the author's agenda; as such, those who are more conservative may have a problem with this book and the way it looks at sexuality.
