2.5 stars.

This short novel about a young cosmonaut who joins the space program because he wants to go to the moon satirizes the Soviet space program. It's rather funny in spots--space food is that utilitarian favorite, canned meat, and Pink Floyd comes in--and less outlandish than the other Pelevin novels I've read but I doubt I'll ever be a Pelevin fan.

(There's more on my blog, here.)
