it was ok

The best thing about this book was the cool twist the author did on the swearing; using food instead of swear words. Not all were as blatantly obvious as the shitake mushroom and most were funny. Good writing style and clever witicisms. I got to wondering though, in our current era of constant visual stimulation it seems as if the modern author writes as if their story will be turned into a screenplay. Simply add a few, "fade in; transition to outside building; cue sound effects" etc. and voila, screen ready! Maybe it's the modern reader? I don't know but sometimes when it's soooo obviously a movie as you're reading it loses some of the luster for me.

GREAT quote: (location 2195)
"You've heard of transexuals. An example of that would be a guy who feels he's a woman in a man's body. The guy gets surgery to become a woman, right? Well, I'm a trans-species. I'm a cat born in a human's body. So I'm getting surgery to change species...I'm saving up for my whisker implants"

I don't think I need to say anymore than that!!!
