Copyright Humor Lessig
This book is what you would get if you got Douglas Addams, Lawrence Lessig and Cory Doctorow to write a book together. It is a short but fun book to read, it has good characters, a decent plot and a solid ending. It moves right along and did make me laugh out loud a few times.
Once I found out that John Hodgman did the reading for the audio book there was no way I was going to bother with the print edition. He is the perfect voice for this book, now I wish he'd go and do the audio editions for the Hitchiker's Guide series.
Hope they didn't spend too much on the FX
I would only recommend this book to a few people. If you are an avid reader of Boing Boing then this book is for you, otherwise move on.
Three people read this story, one sounded like a machine, one was a little better then that and the third was good.
I decided to pick this book up because I thought it might be a new take on Orwell's 1984, it's not. It mentions Orwell's book along with a lot of other books but those references only made me wish I was reading those books not this one. Over all the plot is thin and disappointing. The characters float through the plot without any real conflict or struggle. The villains seem helpless and weak and are easily forgettable. Some nice imagery and good passages but overall I found it dull and laborious to get through.
