it was amazing

I LOVE THIS BOOK. It's so elaborate and exciting and trippy... But most of all, it's got quite a bit of deep philosophy in it. Moving, exciting, imaginative, intense.... It screams fun and games and Ruff delights the reader by flicking through half a century of literary allusions with an extra punch of magic to keep it enticing.

Each of the characters sizzle with their own style...From a mongrel dog who dreams of Heaven to a manx named Blackjack who is the definition of badass to a girl named after a fairy tale princess and a lonely writer who has the power to Write Without Paper.... I loved every word of it and I was sincerely sorry that it ended, because it was one of the best books I've ever read.

BRAVO, MATT RUFF!!! He deserves an extra-large round of applause.
