such a comedic genius! how could he possibly keep so many hilarious situations rolling around a book all at once?

adams' portrayal of svlad cjelli, the main character, is awe inspiring. i can see oliver platt starring in the movie. adams whips out these outrageous scenes, silly subplots, and unbelieveable characters and just frictionlessly spins them into a story you can really jump into and live while you're reading it.

follow this one up immediately with it's sequal, the long dark teatime of the soul.
