What Readers are saying:
"BRILLIANTLY BONKERS - I've rated this book more highly than all the others I've read so far, and some of them were brilliant too. It doesn't fit any of the boxes ("Rate the Narrative on a scale of 1 - 5"...) - it transcends boxes." YouWriteOn.com

"TOO EASY TO READ - The story has it's ups and downs, because the writing is so screamingly original - that anytime I felt a sense of familiarity, I was slightly disappointed. And - anyone who loves a good old-fashioned traditional story is going to drop this book like a mystery fan dropping Joyce's Ulysses. But - the insights pop continuously. The bit about black holes gave me new (to me) ideas. I kept thinking, "This is going nowhere" but I kept reading and laughing. This work is not linear. This is Blog as Art." - BookCountry.com

"THE VOICE - is strong, energetic, intelligent, goofy, exciting... Every time I refocused, I was someplace else. Made me think of those old videogames - where the door you entered a room by, did not exit to where you came in." - BookCountry.com
