I don't want to give away anything about this story away-I think everyone should go into it as blindly as I did.
I thought this book was hilarious and fun, while also providing a little social commentary regarding the civil rights movement and the Holocaust, among other things.
I listened to the audio and Wil Wheaton nailed this one down tight. My only issue was the "he saids, she saids." They started to stand out for me towards the end-by that I mean they were irritating. "He said" doesn't need to be stated at the end of every sentence-and sometimes it felt like that's exactly what was happening. For this I subtracted half of one star.
Other than that one picky thing, (which probably would only bother me, I'm weird like that), I have no criticisms of this book at all. It was funny and creative and rather light on the science, which was fine by me.
Highly recommended to those who prefer their science fiction light, with big chunks of humor on the side!
