What will your descendants be doing in a billion years?

The world building was marvelous. I truly felt like I’d traveled into the distant future and was attempting to understand what our descendants were like countless generations from now. Be sure to pay close attention to the footnotes, especially in the beginning. They’ll make it easy to understand everything that’s going on and slip into a world that is nothing at all like our own.

With that being said, I would have liked to see the same amount of effort put into the plot. The characters spent a lot of time cracking jokes and talking about their surroundings, but they didn’t put as much effort into pursuing their goals as I would have liked to see. While there were things they were trying to accomplish, this wasn’t necessarily the focus of their adventures. I would have gone for a higher rating if it had been.

This was a hysterical read, however! The author drew out a lot of the humor in his scenes by describing outlandish scenarios in such precise detail that I could picture them perfectly in my mind. No sooner would I adapt to one of his images than other one that was even wackier would pop up to take its place. There were no limits to what was possible in this magical world, and that made it an unforgettable experience.

The Golden Age of Flipping Everything should be read by everyone who enjoys tongue-in-cheek humor.
