This book was hilarious. Finally a satire that I could just laugh at and not be told that it was making fun of any particular thing then analyze it. I could liken it to whatever, if I wanted. Which at this time, I didn't want to. I was perfectly fine listening to how more and more outrageous this war got. The funniest directions that it took--yet still believable. And the narrator was fun to listen to with all of his different New York accents. The only reason it took me longer to read was because cassette #3 of 4 was not working and I had to get a print copy to read until tape 4. My time for print reading is limited, so that took a little longer. But it was worth it.

Recommended to anyone who wants something light, silly, and funny.
