it was amazing

So basically everyone needs to read this book right now. This guy, this Rob Reid guy, SHOULD have been the one to write the 6th Hitchhiker's book, instead of Eoin Colfer. He gets it. He absolutely nails the spirit of Douglas Adams' humor. Plus he writes a good story.

The premise sounds absurd and kind of weird- aliens have been pirating our music and now they owe us ALL THE MONEY? Yeah, sounds weird. But the author makes it work, makes it make an absurd kind of sense, and makes it completely fun. And of course the hijinks that ensue are just as absurd and fun.

Also, it features the best rickroll ever.

So yes. Read it now.
