Best of all possible satires

:
It's my favorite book; very short, but scathingly satirical. A must read for anyone, not just literary scholars, because of its humor, wit, and earth-shaking satire. Only problem: I don't think an app does it full justice. But $0.99 is a great price for such an amazing work of art.
