I received this book from a Goodreads contest and was looking forward to reading it; the concept seemed interesting and the title was definitely quirky!
I found the storyline a bit confusing; much of the time I couldn't figure out which character was 'speaking' at any given time.As the book progressed this got easier, primarily because the two main characters, The Duke and The Assistant, were the primary 'speakers'.I did enjoy the book more at the end (last 50 pages); the writing seemed smoother and I had finally figured out most of the name changes that happened whenever the speaker perspective changed.
The book is fairly short and easy enough to read, I just couldn't get into it as much as I had hoped.As mentioned the storyline is interesting since 'The Duke' was a time traveler returning to Earth in order to relate the feelings of 'old-Earth' to the people of his time.
