Antelopes: A Modern Gulliver's Travels (Religion Derision)
Engaging and entertaining, though some points are overdone
I enjoyed this engaging and entertaining follow-up to 'The Isis Affair.' The boys are back for more strange encounters and prosaic observations. I liked the quotes interspersed throughout. They were amusing and made me laugh. Some of the points seemed overdone (to me), like beating a dead horse; however overall it was a fun and entertaining read
