I bought the book simply because the title not only made me raise an eyebrow, but crack a smile. It's a bit pricier than a lot of other Kindle books, but, how do you put a price on a grin? I don't show a lot of emotion while I'm reading. It's a rare book that makes me smile as I flip pages much less before I even flip the first one. I started smiling at the title...and didn't stop until I finished. There were even, wait for it, yes, a few not only chuckle-moments but a couple of actual LOLs. Yep. Me, laughing out loud while reading a book. I couldn't believe it either. Carl Hiassen describes Chris Moore as "A very sick man, in the very best sense of the word." I couldn't have said that better either.

I could wax poetic about all sorts of metaphors and imagery and other literary goop phrases, but to cut to the chase ... I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed reading it more than any other book I've cracked open (or turned on) in a very long time. Moore has an excellent writing style, he came up with yet another outrageous premise and once again unforgettable characters. There's a monster, people getting eaten by said monster, there's stuff blowing up, there's people getting shot, quite a bit of weed smokin' and a heck of a lot of people finding what they didn't know they've been looking for their whole lives.
All in all, it truly fits the time-worn phrase of "rollicking tale." Pure enjoyment. The reason I read.
