This book was really funny and quite a surprise. i was told it was a political satire so I was expected to be bored but I just kept reading and loved it. There was some parts in the book that made me laugh out loud which is rare for me. Great read and highly original.

I loved this humorous and witty book. The style of writing reminded me of the Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy. The plot is well thought out and flows well. It was an enjoyable read and I look forward to more of this talented Author's work.
