Fun concepts, but overall too heavy-handed to be taken seriously. The dialogue was cringe-worthy and the characters were as flat as the pages that described them. 3* for a few honestly funny moments.

The website Max Berry created around the book was better than the book itself. Check it out! Google NationStates
