Shall I say hurray? It took me long enough to get through this, for which I am deeply ashamed.

I was warned about lame puns, and lame puns there were aplenty. That's all fine, because lame puns are the best kind. Lame puns aside, Exophobe was a very smart read. Witty, sharp, hilarious at times, occasionally poignant, slightly pungent in places. I'm sure it says something that my personal favorite character was essentially the voice of the protagonists's Palm Pilot. I'm looking forward to the seq

First off I will say that you should not go straight from a Victorian steampunk book, into the EM field. Talk about losing your stream of conscience and sense of self!

Once I finally got into the writing style of Mellott (or perhaps just Enoch's unique voice), things proceeded along quite nicely. I am also not used to having the 4th wall so transparent in the books I have read, so that was another change for me. But change is good, and it actually fit very much with the feeling of the book.

I very much enjoyed this novel; the "voice" of the narrator makes the flow easy, while still allowing the author to deluge the reader with often hilarious puns and obscure sub-references. I enjoy reading things that teach me without my realizing it, and this book had me searching with Google on more than one occasion. If you are a fan of Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore or Dave Barry, you will find things to like about "Exophobe". The humour is smart (well, mostly!), the plot is sufficiently con ...more

This has easily become one of my favorite books of all time. I can't wait for the next one! The style of writing is unique, entertaining, and highly immersive. Any passerby that witnessed my reading of the book would have surely thought me to be a raving lunatic. Often I would burst out with laughter and in return receive strange looks. I will recommend this book to everyone I know!

Liked it, especially the hero and his witty banter, quips and puns, but felt that at times the book was too wordy (relying too much on Enoch's word play, and his pleasure with his own intelligence and wit), and at other times it dragged some because there wasn't enough action.
