Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth

"Fiercely inventive sci-fi adventure", "This book was so good; I loved every second of it.", we don't need a detector to tell that these people are lying. A dire piece of literature that will "transport" you to a world where you are expected to know the name of each and every brand new made up thing. While I wish I could say it gets better throughout, alas I cannot. Unsuccessfully attempting to build a sad and slightly tragic version of suspense, the end is just as bad as the rest of it. Every minute I was reading this book it felt like 20 needles piercing my heart. However, these needles were not the pains you get from an emotional journey but from bad writing. One thing I don't understand about this book ( on top of the un-explained things that happen) is: Why does a fiction book need a glossary?! Seriously, they added so many things they had to add a glossary! This book is less Rail Head, more Rail Wish-This-Book-was-Dead Head!
