Good book but...
...weird in some places.
Exceptionally creative, but...
...there were a couple of things that I couldn't quite see as being for the Young Adult targeted age group.
Twist on a common whodunit
The opening was intriguing, with colorful characters brought to life by the skill of the writing. I enjoyed the banter between them...for a while. I'll get back to that.
Missing Credentials and References
One of the first things I look for when I read this type of book is the author's credentials. Their qualifications for writing on a topic that should be presented by professionals in the field.
The oddities bothered me
First off, it wasn't poorly written, but it was the writing style that annoyed me somewhat.
Interesting title, but the cover needs work
Easy, extremely short read.
Clipped Narrative-Style Writing
The story was good. It had real potential to be great.
Arrogance Off Putting
I'm not at all religious, nor do I follow religions. I do appreciate different disciplines and like to read up on them occasionally.
The book is broken down into different sections, i.e. animals, space, money, with a brief introduction to each followed by a ton of numbered facts.
Interesting and skewed
The author is obviously well-educated, which made this book a decent read; however, there was the obvious slant and not-well-veiled skew against the western power, the United States
