"Moore (The Wild Orchid Society, 2004, etc.) definitely thrives on excess. But she's wildly funny and impressively adroit at tying up all the wacky bits and pieces. Go ahead and read it. You need a good laugh."
"Ignore the false notes here—the tough-but-vulnerable swagger, the overheated backstory, the witless Who's-on-First interlude, the interminable windup—and pray that Moore, who's well worth watching, sticks to her best stuff next time."
