Interesting read, but the whole time I felt like I was missing something. Like I needed one more piece of information to understand what was going on. Instead of becoming immersed in the story and characters, I stood on the side watching and scratching my head. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553384414, Paperback)

Tim Scott’s Outrageous Fortune marked the debut of one of the most wildly inventive writers to hit the sci-fi scene in years. Now he returns with a hilarious yet poignant novel of love, loss, and itinerant appliances.

“New Seattle Health and Safety. Do not die for no reason.” This is the motto of a city so obsessed with the danger of sharp corners that it has almost forgotten how to live. But Huckleberry Lindbergh is about to find his trip to the city most decidedly unsafe. For a chance encounter leads him into the heart of a dark conspiracy. And in order to stop it, this former cop is about to do something so unsafe—so monumentally stupid—that its reverberations will be felt all the way to the Pentagon.

Soon he is on the run from more authorities than he has had hot meals, his staunchest allies a bunch of feral fridges that give new meaning to the words “chill out.” But sometimes a dose of chaos is just what the doctor ordered, and Huck’s quest to remain among the living teaches not only him but those around him the true meaning of survival . . . in all its forms.

In a strange world where living refrigerators exist in herds like wild animals, Seattle has become a coddled city beset by irrational fears. Enter ex-cop Huckleberry, who's about to see his life take a turn for the weird when he stumbles into a dangerous conspiracy and the fridges become his only friends.… (more)
