The Future's so Bright

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu is funny, sad, touching, and thoroughly entertaining.  With shades of The Hitchhiker's Guide mixed with a little bit of The Time Traveler's Wife and a portion of Slaughterhouse Five on the side, this book is an entertaining jaunt through time and space.  A quick read for sure, yet for all its brevity, it packs a powerful amount of humor, angst, and metaphysics.
