    A Unique And Entertaining Book Read this book with interest It is a series of interconnected satires that offer socio political commentary through the lens of characters and worlds closely resembling our own The use of imaginary names resembling those in our world is certainty Swiftian Fascibook, Nueva Jorker, Amourrica Profunda etc while the propensity for characters to be eccentric misfits reminded me a bit of Chuck Palahniuk Overall, it was an enjoyable read, well written, with a decent sense of structure pacing Perhaps the best thing I can say about this book is that it is highly original That, however, could also be a bit of a critique At times I wanted Steven to rein it in to add structure to show these characters grow in a traditional sense and to build upon these episodes and unique characters so that the satire really fully challenges our current social order All this being said, there is enough in here to entertain a wide range of readers and the book was bett...
