...In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It's quite a trip -- The Missouri Review --The Missouri Review
...utterly compelling...a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters motivations and on the progression of the plot.... In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn. -- Electric Review / Midwest Book Review --Electric Review / Midwest Book Review
...a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse...tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them...profound...a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy. -- Awesome Indies (Gold Medal) --Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)
