Happy I broke my duck on reading e-books with this one. Definitely worth a read.
It's got the same general comedy tone as the Pirates books, but (oddly enough) with a carefully wrought underlying detective plot and a darker edge to the humour. Imagine something as embittered as Douglas Adams' later books, but as funny as Douglas Adams' earlier books.
My only complaints are that it's pretty short (I gobbled it down in an evening) and it's not *quite* as hilarious as the Pirates! books- but that's an extremely high standard.
Defoe uses the Elite license as a (heavily lampshaded) excuse for an excellent comic novel. If you were a fan of the Pirates! Books, you should definitely buy it, but more people than that should buy it, too.
If you are planning on buying the new Elite game, you MUST own this book, since their new copy protection system involves entering the third word from paragraph four of page 80.
BTW - I went ahead and also bought Nemorenis and Wanted. Reviews to follow.
This book is kid friendly for those that care.
