    Oh the Irony. . .

    This book is an ironic blend of Buck Rogers and Mad Max. Wren Natsworthy is a fifteen year old living in a world after the Sixty Minute War. The inhabitants of this world live in predatory cities that roam the earth on wheels or balloons. Wren, bored with her prosaic life, takes the first available opportunity to escape the constraints of her small town existence and proceeds to entangle her mother and father in a web of intrigue that she doesn¿t anticipate. This is the third book in The Hungry City Chronicles. The story line is at times pretty predictable, but the author¿s style is very tongue-in-cheek, which makes the facetious look at life entertaining. Readers will occasionally be amused by a satirical name of a place or person. While there aren¿t a lot of curricular tie-ins, unless one wants to delve deeply into the literary device of satire or the political overtones contained within the book, it is a fast, fun read. I find myself actually looking forward to the sequel.
