A library patron wishes to pass this information along:
SF LIKE A bowl of fruit, a whale in the woods by Russel Like
is awful. Don't bother.
He is not alone, other readers have really disliked it (example).
We ordered it on the basis of a favorable pre-publication review in Booklist, January 2004. But that bit about the squids and eggplant should have warned us "... the mind-control devices have spread throughout most human-populated worlds and have followed Greg and company to a world on which giant squids compete over the best eggplant recipe. Full of spectacularly odd worlds; frantic, bumbling adventure; and triumphant world-saving"
