This is one of the craziest bat-shit books I have ever read! And it is glorious.
It has every twist, gore, dark humor, inconceivable situation someone could possibly throw into a book and it works beautifully; the plot line is truthful throughout (although realizing it takes you for a wild ride!) Thank you Scott Hawkins for your unlimited imagination!
Right from the beginning I was like:
but I was also doing this:
This was my favorite read of 2015.
This story has everything from military nukes and secret meetings to lions and mad dogs and dead people who aren’t dead anymore. It has a demented sicko who wears a pink tutu as he kills what needs to be killed (and sometimes what doesn’t) and the sickest, saddest daughter-father story line a book has ever held. It has the best laugh out loud moments and can’t get your breath gasps along with a heroine so void of any really feeling that you don’t even notice it. It is wonderfully deliciously demented and the best book I have read for true escapism. It’s one hell of a wild ride!
This is a book you have to read for yourself. No review is going to do it any justice and I get the sad feeling that describing it will just make people not want to read it. Don’t do yourself that disservice; go out and buy it, steal it, borrow it, just get it and read it.
Word of caution: Be careful reading it in public. “Holy flucks” and “Shit that can’t be happening”, expressions, along with laughter and possibly coffee coming out of your nose, will have other people moving away from you very quickly and perhaps dialing for assistance (theirs, not yours).
Get this book now! (Really …go!) Carolyn has a plan …
(Did I mention it has a library to die for?)
