Eric Henderson has certainly posed an interesting question with this novel. And he certainly handled it with humor and wit. It was a clever answer that brought up the issues that come with living without money or technology without sending it into darker territory. The plot was intriguing and certainly unique.
The characters were an interesting blend. Each chapter revealed a different personality and a different perspective on their current situation. That certainly kept things interesting. It also meant that you didn't really feel any deep connection with characters though. But that wasn't as big a deal as you didn't really need the deeper connection to get into this book.
Stranded in Sunshine was an amazingly hilarious read, one that certainly passed quickly.
