There was much to laugh at in this book. Although there were many really wacky things that happened, the parody was never completely disrespectful of the original text. And there were loads of other allusions throughout. But about two-thirds of the way through, the book lost some of its gusto. The jokes were starting to wear a little thin and I was happy to see it brought to a quick conclusion; even so, I really did enjoy most of it.
