Hmm... I may need to borrow that. We're going to a sci fi convention in January (we finally just gave up and accepted our geek-dom), it might be entertaining preparation :)
I loved this book (and the sequel) when I read it!
I have the best story ever about that book.
A friend of mine went to grad school out East somewhere, Boston maybe? Anyway, one of her professors was Elie Wiesel. At some point during the semester or maybe at the end, Mr. Wiesel was flying off somewhere and my friend gave him this book for airplane reading. She did it because the image of Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor, author, Nobel Prize winner, reading Bimbos of the Death Star on an airplane was just too delicious to pass up.
