It seems I liked this much better than the average reader on this site. I really enjoyed the way that it dealt with so many themes that are important today -- corporatism, environmentalism, neurodiversity just to name a few.
Happy for a non-corporate alternative SFF, mystery,comics, gardening, science, philosophy.

Didn't Meet My Expectations
When your book is compared to Adams & Pratchett, it's very difficult to live up to those comparisons. Maybe that's what happened here. It's not that this is a bad book, but I never felt connected to this quirky band of misfits. The humor never quite hit, and the references to other SFF felt a bit forced.
