Just read the summary of this on Amazon, it looks hilarious.
Funny, satirical sci-fi novel. The author has said he had a lot of fun writing this book; I know I had a lot of fun reading it.
Opening sentence: "Dick Moeller didn't know if he could fart his way into a major diplomatic incident. But he was ready to find out." The rest of the story grows from this one event. You have been warned.
Whether or not you are into scrapbooking or journaling, this is a great, easy way to document your life. The project can be whatever you want it to be and can take as much or as little time as you want it to. Get your photos off your computer and into an album where they can be viewed and enjoyed.
Rollicking, non-stop action. After the difficult-to-get-through System of the World and the sometimes lagging Anathem, Stephenson is back with a book that combines the best elements of his recent books with everything you loved about Snow Crash and other early novels.
