Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Let me just say that I'm STILL super impressed that this title ever got out of the gate.
As for everything else going on, this is very much a sequel but it's hardly needed to read the first book first. Crazy s**t happened. Zoey is way out of her depth. Still.
In fact, this novel goes completely off the deep end. Let's keep the humor running high, make sure our poor Zoey is now super freaking rich, inheriting all the ills of the rich, and feeling the total terror of rampaging human augments, gigantic farting kitties, and even more about futuristic suits.
What's the real issue tho?
Zoey is isolated like crazy and is starting to go crazy. It doesn't hurt that this totally nuts place in Ohio is a privatized anarchistic wonderland that has more in common with an anime than a rational city.
And that's what's awesome about this.
That, and the cat. Any of the cats. I'm all over this book. It's all about the cats.
It takes a lot of unusual social takes and maybe even takes an unpopular stance, but I have to grand the balls on this book. Or rather, where the focus goes. :)
