Sharp, Stuart -- Court of Dreams
"Writes like Douglas Adams!", my friend said while recommending the
book, and that turns out to be true. However, Adams had a fine sense
for when to shut it off, and this author doesn't. The smartass remarks
just keep coming, one after another, whether in descriptive narrative,
dialogue, or action scenes. Work on that.
The story is a human college student falls into Faerieland, followed
by elf politics and the expected dose of "Mom how could you." Other
plot threads follow the elf (spoiled brat) princess and her Huntsman,
who would make a great character if he weren't stuck in a book that
wasn't about him. Overall, my reaction -- and I'm sorry about this,
but it's the most accurate summation -- is "mostly harmless".
