"Rhinehart's exploration of the human condition and its myriad flaws through Louie's unique take on it is delightful, and fans of globe-hopping, madcap fun with a razor-sharp side dose of political and societal satire will gobble up this absurdist treat." -- Booklist

"A delightful, creative romp of an adventure that trails a thoughtful social message behind"
- Pop Mythology

"Political commentary meets first contact invention, and somehow comes out the other end a hilarious sci-fi comedy." - Barnes & Noble
