Very enjoyable, I chortled throughout!

I do wish that I were a little more familiar with the history/setting of this period. Since so much of the conference attendees were written to spoof political movements, popular culture, and philosophy, I think I was missing a lot of the jokes due to my sad lack of knowledge. And in satire, I'm afraid, the reader's enjoyment is based on how much they "get". Luckily, I did "get" a good bit so my enjoyment was high.

It was great to come across the wonderfully dreary Starkadders again. And the annoying and intolerable Mr. Mybug was true to form. Everyone was still up to their antics and the craziness went on. I loved Grootebeest, Big Business, and the water voles!

I wish they'd make a movie of this one as well. But I doubt that is likely to happen, unfortunately.
