I'll just give it a quick scan, I thought to myself.
Three o'clock the next morning I finished reading with that rare sense of loss you get when you finish a book you never really wanted to end.
I'm terrible at summaries and reviews so I'll just say that it involves superpowers, politics, the limits of human responsibility and is fast paced, deep, crisply written, full of vim, vigour, wit, wisdom and zest.
Plus it's really, really funny. As the man with the long name at the bottom of the cover says...
"You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp and YOU WILL demand a sequel!"
