This is a very funny book. However, I don't think Scott should be compared to Adams and Pratchett as much as he is. This is a comic novel, but Scott's style is more surreal than Adams and Pratchett's. I was occasionally reminded of Kafka by the unexpectedness of the events.
I don't think that only English authors can write funny novels. Vonnegut did okay, and he was from Indianapolis.
I also enjoyed the reader. The book is set in Santa Cruz, and the protaganist and his buddies are surfers. The reader did a great job of conveying the laid back attitude of the central California beach crowd.
Try this book out if you're looking for a funny adventure in a bizarrely imagined, not-too-distant future.
