When I mark this as "finished," I mean I'm finished with it, not that I completed reading the entire thing. I got less than 50 pages in and was unwilling to read further. At first it was charming and funny, but that wore off fast. The satire is mostly lame, and I did a lot of eye-rolling. The concept was interesting, but perhaps in the hands of someone like Kurt Vonnegut (were he alive), it might have been well-done.
