Read in May, 2012

Witty book with gentle social satire on American, and indeed global, values, society and politics. Including poking fun at the amatuer astronomer main characters too. While some of the science of a huge golden meteor crashing to the earth with limited damage (1, it would melt, and 2, if it didn't it would have caused a huge tsunami unlike the relatively gentle landing depicted) doesn't take away from the plot too greatly.
