Hilarious. The editing deteriorated as the book progressed.
Follows the love triangle between three characters from the "Put up or shut up" generation set against a backdrop of war, paper mâché, and a talking coyote. Etta, Otto, and Russell seemingly float from one action to the next, their movements unimpeded by emotions or cost-benefit analyses. A little googling and now I know "Mature/Silents" lived in an era when personal feelings had to be set aside. This book is about them doing what they feel like for the first time.
You knew this was inevitable, especially if you're aware of my propensity for monster drawing. You can draw this too! Google "male model", "boudoir", and "worm."
New York Times Bestseller! How this list has fallen in my eyes. I couldn't decide whether this was literature or jerk-off sci-fi for dudes. There is a female army - what do you think is their primary method of subduing a population? When I wasn't distracted by the misogyny and homophobia, I could sense Herbert's arguments for a benevolent dictator were fascinating. I hope to absorb more of them the next time I read this book. For now, I can't wait to get it out of my house.
Have you ever been turned off by prejudice in a book?
