    " Simply put, Tim Scott tries to be Douglas Adams but in a run-down city in the future and with a plot that was confusing and left me disconnected from the characters. I would recommend this book to no one. "

    " a silly douglas adams-like detective story set in seattle. "

    " This book is worth reading purely for the entertaining fridges. They are escaped! I love them! Who needs more than wild fridges to make a novel work? "

    " I didn't love this book. Sorry. It had elements of some of the great sci-fi books, but, was not richly textured enough. It was however, a very quick read. "

    " This book was bizzare. Truly bizzare. But not in a bad way. "

    " Overly rich with metaphors. "

    " Amusing but I always felt like I was missing something. It was 1984 mixed with Hitchhikers Guide which is two of my favorite books, so in theory I should love this book. Sadly, I did not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 7/25/2009

    " A fairly mediocre novel with a few bright spots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine | 7/17/2009

    " This book has feral fridges in it seriously what else do you want? Oh yeah and the plot is great. Although I'm not convinced the fridges were actually necessary. "

    " A rare attempt into the world of Sci-Fi Comedy which sadly falls short. I thought his first book was better. I found this one to be choppy with all these little short chapters. It reminded me a little of Douglas Adams. I believe I read that he wrote it while commuting which explains alot. "
