The Good Book

Of course, I'm talking about Jennifer Government, which came today. Somehow, this book managed to impress me despite my ludicrously high expectations of it. Imagine if The Matrix trilogy lived up to it's potential, rather than following the Star Wars model (the first movie is revolutionary due to the topic and implementation, the second movie is the best movie from an entertainment POV, and the third movie is a total letdown after the first two), and you've got Jennifer Government. I don't think it's outside the realm of possibilities to have this book end up alongside 1984 in Jr. High School reading lists.

And to finish the "fanboy" tone, I'll say that this book is good enough for me to double my typical reading speed out of sheer enthusiasm. Really, buy the damn book. :-)
