This book is incredibly entertaining - genuinely hilarious, eminently quotable and surprisingly thought-provoking. It's also scary, generally planting little seeds in your head that creep you out rather than going for a shock factor. It also seems like the sort of book that you could revisit over and over again and find things that you missed the first time. It's a book that has reignited my passion for reading, in the off-chance that I'll come across another book even half as good.
