Being somewhat cynical when it comes to 'far-fetched'stories, I was surprised to find myself totally absorbed in this one! Enter the book with an open mind, and the tale works brilliantly, enter cynical, and it still works. Part of the appeal is that throughout the whole story, Tucker, the main character, is constantly saying to himself how ridiculous his situation is. He himself doesn't beleive in what is happening, which makes it easier to get into and read without needing to worry about it being unrealistic. The story is well written, simple and effective. The characters are likeable, if somewhat strange, and they interconnect to bring about a great combination of normality mixed with the absurd and bizarre. Eidson's best work yet - Read It!
