I got a big kick out of this one. Written as a sort of middle school film noir, there are crazy similies to be found throughout this book. How awesome is that? I thought that this book was very clever.

A little over the top perhaps (not a problem for me), and I did find one minor inconsistancy(it don't confuse or alter the main plot), and the characters are somewhat superficial (as is often the case in film noir), but highly enjoyable nevertheless.

I kind of imagine that I'd give this book to someone who liked Shredderman. But I guess I'd have to read Shredderman to know for sure if my impressions are right. Add one more to the to-read list...
