I read this because it was mandated by Constitutional amendment sometime in the late 90s. It was fine; the main character was the biggest Mary Sue in the history of publishing to date; it went after religion in an adorably tin-foil-hat manner. What I really want to talk about is ambigrams. They rule, and they aren't nearly as ZOMG HARD TWSS as they are in this book. Observe:
Aww, I love this one.
Which, maybe that's enough for a bestseller. Certainly not enough to get worked up about either way.
