This one is for the fans. It skirted the line of preciousness for me, and then fell over it in the coda parts; yet another book I wish I had stopped reading at the story's natural end. The premise is clever, the dialogue sharp, the characters cardboard (on purpose, I expect), and the feelings, well, I did miss those. There's even a slight romance/love story, viewed from a very far distance. A book I smiled with, but didn't laugh with or feel much from.
