    wasn't sure what to expect

    I picked up this book on a whim and recommendation of a friend and was intrigued and lost at some points but overall enjoyed the pretext of the book although it did seem to change tones too much. Whether you agree with his politics or not Anthony DiMarzio is showing what makes him tick no matter how profane it may be.

    Great book

    This book is hilarious, even though I don't think it is meant to be. The book has a bunch of political undertones, some that just jump out at you, others that are quietly dropped in. I recommend this book to anyone who likes comedy, politics, and absurdity.

    Hysterical

    What a strange and funny book. You will laugh out loud while reading this. Subversive social commentary has never been so much fun to read.

    On the verge

    You can¿t help but feel connected with people in this story. Each characters¿ dementia is as wonderful as the next. The absurdity of the plot is what makes it such an accurate social satire. No modern tale has captured the aestheticism of food nationalism so poignantly. Witty dialogue, an intriguing plot and a song that encapsulates adolescent disillusion. So funny he¿ll probably get sued.

    Excellent Plot!

    This book has an excellent plot full of many exciting and unique twists and turns. Great read that you definitely can't put down. Very distinct commentary on life and society. Dimarzio's presentation of the material is very intrigueing. I highly recommend it!
