A hilarious, action-packed look at the apocalypse that combines a touching tale of friendship, a thrilling war story, and an all out kung-fu infused mission to save the world.
Gonzo Lubitch and his best friend have been inseparable since birth. They grew up together, they studied kung-fu together, they rebelled in college together, and they fought in the Go Away War together. Now, with the world in shambles and dark, nightmarish clouds billowing over the wastelands, they have been tapped for an incredibly perilous mission. But they quickly realize that this assignment is more complex than it seems, and before it is over they will have encountered everything from mimes, ninjas, and pirates to one ultra-sinister mastermind, whose only goal is world domination.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Incredible writing style (funny, witty, intelligent, etc etc) and equally strange story. The story (and writing style) takes some time to get used to, but the book captivates from the start. The only downside, in my opinion, is the rather fast and a bit unoriginal last act. Read it and enjoy the gone-away world!
