Customer Review

on 11 June 2003
First thing that strikes you is the very unusual style reminiscent of Mervyn Peaks' Gormonghast (it feels like the author just loves the sound of words) with a little bit of Kurt Vonnegut thrown in as well.
To be honest it's not the kind of thing that I usually like to read, but it did start to grow on me by the time I'd read about half way.
The story about the PhD Pirate was very funny with a fairly profound insight into the uselessness of knowledge without context.
Not for everybody but in the end I did enjoy it.
