I know that this is not actually all that great a book. There is zero characterization, it's a bit cheesy, and the writing is pedestrian. But somehow it is WAY more fun than it has any right to be. It moves along at an insane clip, it's funny, and while the author is not a great writer, he has a clear storytelling style and an authorial voice that makes everything good fun.

It's really too bad that Carpenter's movie based on the book is not as good as it should be. I would love to see a good film treatment of this -- it was born to be made into a movie, pretty much.
