Thank you to Lauren Diaz from St. Martin’s Press for reaching out to me and asking if I would like to review this book for an unbiased review. This was one of the best yes’s I have uttered! This book is pure exhilarating entertainment!
Welcome to Wil Morgan’s world. He is a middle age man who has learned that life holds no magic, is not wonderful, and at it’s very best, living is a very mundane thing to be endured. This all about to change…drastically.
Enter an old man who is the curator of the Curioddity Museum who looks at the world in an upside down fashion and tries to teach Wil Morgan to unlook at everything. Throw in an swarmy, whiter than possible glaring white toothed villian, a free spirited woman, some ninja-bots, a clock tower that is destined to drive Wil Morgan insane, a rat vomit smelly elevator, and a cat-lady landlord and you are in for a crazy amazingly silly wonderful read!
Paul Jenkins is right up there with Ernest Cline and Scott Hawkins in creating a first novel that is unlike anything you have read, in a world that’s totally different. He has had many successes with writing characters for DC and Marvel Comics ~ Spider-Man, Batman, the Incredible Hulk, Hellblazer, The Inhumans and The Sentry. He also has written great characters for The Darkness, The Incredible Hulk and God of War video games. His first foray into novels is pure geekiness and fun!
If you loved the Back to the Future Series and Who Framed Roger Rabbit movie, then you will love this story. I could totally picture a new half animated hit movie in the making (it’s about time someone tackled another Who Framed Roger Rabbit type movie, hint, hint).
Welcome to looking at life upside down.
This will probably be my best read for 2016. Go out and buy this one!
