This book is hilarous, and it does a great job at pointing out how silly literary criticism can be. I loved the translated section that retained all of the grammar form its original language. I loved the critics who admitted that they hadn't even read the articles they were citing, and I loved how 13 very different interpretations were treated as difinitive even though they disagreed with each other in so many ways. I heard the sequel is great to and hope I can read it soon.
