Just read this baby on my recent vacation. Pretty twisted. If any of you have read his Transmetropolitan, you'll know his style of satire. Laughs abound in this thing and look out for a "cameo" of the Maltese Falcon.

I read a negative review of it that made me want to pick it up. I'll wait for the paperback though.

What's the point? The hardcover is cheap enough. Ahem. The book is a quick read but nothing special. Nobody who's been on the internet for more than a month will find any of the stuff in there shocking. A few chuckles are to be had, yes, and I dug the part about THE STARS MY DESTINATION.
