This book would have ended up on the DNF shelf if I hadn't committed to writing a review. While the beginning was relatively auspicious (flavors of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Into the Woods), I soon realized that "flavors" and "hints" was as much development as this story had to offe...
