This was a decent book....I enjoyed the story line and found it amusing, but the entire time I was reading it, I felt like a teenager with severe ADHD wondering where my brain was going to go next. The reason I say this is because of all the footnotes that take you off in different directions. They were mostly random thoughts pertaining to what the character was doing along with a few "background info" type footnotes, but I found it really distracting. I had to keep going back and re-reading what I had just finished because I was already off on a different train of thought. Overall, the story line was well thought out, with lots of humor and quirky jabs at humankind (and "alien-kind for that matter). I think that this would be a great book for young adults also...maybe not so much younger teens because of a few instances of sexual innuendos, but definitely teen through adult genres.
