Very bitter, very real... Would love to see more stories like this." "Don't go on this ride unless you're prepared to look into the abyss." " Vulgar, obscene, repulsive, and just overall a very good story." "What a great ride. Gritty and compelling!" THE UNITED STATES OF AIR "Had me laughing so hard that my stomach still hurts!" "Porup takes a swipe at the war on terror in a manner that is original and avoids the blatantly obvious. It would be too easy for any writer approaching the same subject to employ a semi-realist Orwellian tone, but this novel takes the humorous low-road." "Porup seamlessly addresses indefinite detention...The overrun surveillance state...The neverending War on Terror...And a frightening and ubiquitous NSA surveillance state that "wiretaps" your toilet instead of your phones." "The puns also abound, as do the guilty giggles in this often excrement-strewn sleuther. A dark comedy." FOOD-FREE AT LAST: HOW I LEARNED TO EAT AIR "I laughed til tears rolled down my cheeks!" "This diet has saved me so much money, I can now afford a bouncy castle in every room!" "Great satirical book." "I think I will get my Angel wings soon."

I was soooooooo disappointed after reading this book whose title offered such promise. The "Air Diet" is as ridiculous as it sounds. No one can live on air, and it wasn't even written as humorously as it could have been.
