The United States of Air: a Satire

The United States of Air: a Satire - J.M. Porup Originally published on my blog:

I won this book thanks to Goodreads First Reads Giveaways. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy it at all.
I wasn't even the slightest bit amused by the jokes in this book. It was way too exaggerated for my taste and as much as I hate not finishing books, I was so annoyed after 100 pages that I had to drop it. I honestly don't know how I managed to get that far. I thought it might get better, but instead it only got worse and worse.
I am grateful for receiving the book, don't get me wrong, but that can't make me suddenly ignore all the bad things about it, from the shit jokes (literally and figuratively) to the impossible plot. It is so much different from what the book description makes you believe it is...
