it was amazing

I just spent the last four hours reading this book... it was absolutely incredible. Personally, I thought this book was better than the previous one. However, for people uninterested in politics (that's right folks: Politics), this novel is probably a little gory. This one pokes fun at our previous administration (my personal favorite is at the presidential debate where he [Josh/Larry:] knocks the socks off George W. Bush, who happens to have toilet paper stuck to his shoe) and includes a huge amount of statistics about our country (with information crediting the sources and how to learn more in the back).
Something else that I liked about this book was that it wasn't "Republicans are bad". Josh ran under the new (and fictional) Peace Party, and disliked the two-party system, making fun of both republicans and democrats.
Despite the fact that this book is mostly about politics, it still has a really good story about a teenage boy that happens to want to change the world.
