I really had a fun time reading this novel! The characters are all well written, but I'd say the dog was my favorite character. The book had me from the first page, which is rare for me. I loved the social commentary interspersed throughout the story and I actually chuckled out loud in several spots. The book was goofy but interesting throughout, and I highly recommend it. ~meg

This was an absolutely AWESOME book. It grabs your interest from the first page and keeps your interest to the last page! While reading it I hated to put it down. I even found myself giggling and laughing out loud while reading this book. A MUST READ!!!! Looking forward to reading the sequel mentioned at the end of the book.

Thanks, Goodreaders for your comments, else I would never have found this great book. It was the most fun I've ever had reading a book. Jon Robertson is brilliant. I don't want to reveal too much about the plot, but there's mystery, adventure, and satire. And I loved those little giggles of delight when I "got" the references.

This book is a fun read. It's a very entertaining story, while making lots of interesting points about our culture along the way. Love the humor throughout and the dog Jason is an especially fun character.
