This was an absolutely amazing book. It's probably not for everyone, though. If you have very strong religious sensibilities, you may not think it's funny. If you didn't like Hitchhikers Guide or Life of Brian, you may not like it. If, however, you think Douglas Adams and Monty Python are a joy, then sit down and start listening. You'll be glad you did.
I know that there are aspects of the fannish community that are rather exposed to ridicule. I'm a member and I occasionally poke a little fun myself.
Ridicule can be good natured or it can be uninformed and mean spirited. I easily classify this in the latter category. If you want to learn a little bit about fandom, then go else where. If you are a member of the community, run do not walk, to the nearest exit.
Add the this the fact that the mystery is lame, slow and boring and I could not in good conscience recommend this book to anyone unless that person already had a strong dislike for my peeps.
I suppose I would classify it as a lesser variant of hate speech. Almost like the story of Anne Frank, told by an anti-semite who was trying to be objective. That's how it felt to me.
