I actually found it to be rather depressing to be quite honest.

I liked it until the very end, when it seemed to endorse the view that the Rust Belt has no legitimate hope for the future.

That's one of my all time favorite books! I didn't know anyone else knew about it.

Years of having people come into the bookstore 3-4 times a year, talking about "...there's this book about archaeologists at a motel..." and my impressing them totally with the depth of my knowledge. (Actually, my husband had the book when we were first married.)

LOL. I found it at a garage sale one year. That book makes the top ten list of various cool things I've found at yard sales over the years. I'll bet someone at the Onion has this book too--you're right, it's a very similar story idea.
