"[A] wickedly funny debut novel." (Booklist)
"An engaging political satire." (The Washington Post's Book World)
Great satire as I'd expect from Harry Shearer. Sure it gets a little silly at times, but always returns to intelligent fun.
Characters are all quirky individuals who we can laugh at and feel fondness for while knowing they are all heading for failure - if not disaster.
I recommend Not Enough Indians for listening to when you want light (but not childish) humor.
(Plus, it's relatively clean: very limited harsh language, nothing graphically described, just a little clean diaper humor).

Any additional comments?
Great fun from the voice of The Simpsons.
The book was a good listen. The characters held my interest. The plot was not tedious as might have happened. The idea that a town would resort to these measures to survive is hilarious. It made me smile and even occasionally laugh out loud...something I do not normally do. I liked the book and thought it was good but not great. I recommend it to others for satisfying reading.
