A very quick and easy read yet full of dark humour, satire and social commentary. I'm left thinking I should be horrified and outraged but somehow I'm smiling at the audacity. Great characters, simple plot and slick writing make this an excellent book. Good one for a readiing group as there are lots of issues arising that could be argued about for ages from all kinds of perspectives. Why only 3 stars not 4 or 5? Not nearly literary enough for 5 stars and too short for 4. Would go to 3.5 though.
