Buridan's Ass is a strange, interesting story.
There's sex in it, but it doesn't become the whole story.
It IS full of coincidences. You'd think Las Vegas has a population of about 500 the way everyone is tied together.
But, in my opinion, it works.
I was a little disappointed when I got to the alien landing. I thought the author had finally gone off the deep end and lost it, but he pulled it out of the fire.
This is a little like the story of Job, a guy who had really bad luck.
But there were parts where I laughed. And it takes a lot to make me laugh.
To me, this is a very skillfully written story, told truthfully, with a bit of tongue in cheek.
I really enjoyed it and give it a solid 5 stars.
