    "This book seems more relevant than ever given today's social and political climate. Besides having something to say about social issues, it's also a gripping read on its own and is very worthwhile."

    "After watching the series I had to check out the books. I have to say, I get a little bit different vibe from the books than I do from the series. But different isn't bad, it''s just...different. I thought it was pretty good and will be reading the rest of the series."

    "I had asked my friend for a new book to read on a whim, the only stipulations being that it was funny and it was based in the United States. He lent me this book after saying that he got it from his sister and that it was right up my alley. I set it aside, thinking he was making a joke at my expense, and kind of forgot about for a month or so. I picked up to give back to him and sat down to read the first couple pages just too see what it was about. I was hooked from that moment on. The opening chapter is just odd enough to suck you in and keep you in until it's over."
