Princess of Persia is a tale of the end of the world, gods and demons, terrorists, superheroes, polite vegetarian zombies, super-intelligent coffee machines, evil conspiracies, gay arranged marriages, murderous butterflies, and Bollywood. And, oh yeah, there's a prince of Persia in there who's in love with the heroine.
This book is part satire, part farce, and mostly pure silliness. You don't read it for the prose stylings or the character development (which is a little thin), you read it for the humor. And, yeah, the story itself is pretty exciting. But mostly it didn't matter what was going on in the story, I was too busy laughing out loud.
