Very creative and fun. This isn't a linear novel but a collection of short stories. Each chapter is about a different plane or dimension. The author uses the exploration of each plane to say interesting things about our society without seeming to be hitting the reader over the head with moral conclusions. It's a very fun, quick read.

These short stories form “a fantastical travel guide, reminiscent of Gulliver’s Travels” from an author with ”the eye of an anthropologist and the humor of a satirist” (USA Today).
“A master of the craft.” —Neil Gaiman
