Product Description

Product Description

Please note, How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy is suitable for ages 18+ and is not recommended for prudes or squares.

. . . . . . . .

Teaser Excerpts:

“Look, man. Calm down, you daft fool. I promise you, man … we’ve got no intentions of doing an anal probe on you. Why would we fly halfway across the galaxy to visit a different civilisation, and then when we get here, like, we go, ‘Hmm, how shall we interact with this new civilisation? I know! We’ll stick things up their bum!’ You’re proper mental, you, man.”

"It just seems a bit inconsiderate on their feelings. I mean, like, normally when you snog a lass she assumes it's because you find her physically attractive, but if she realised you were only snogging her as part of a plan to kill her entire species she'd probably feel a bit huffed."

"Ar, well, I mean I'm obviously tempted, like. I mean, I'm tempted to save the world ... not the spanking stuff, obviously ... just saving the world. I mean I would obviously get involved in a bit of spanking if it meant saving the world. But just to save the world ... not for anything else."

. . . . . . .

The Blurb:

'Aliens from the planet Fem have decided that as compassionate citizens of the galaxy they have a duty to alleviate suffering and affliction from the rest of the galaxy.

In the majority of cases this will involve sharing their unprecedented prosperity and quality of life with those planets less fortunate than themselves. Of course, in a minority of extreme cases this will also involve eliminating life from those planets in the galaxy where the level of suffering is simply too great to alleviate.

Unfortunately for Earth, the Femlings have deemed us one such planet...'

. . . . . . .

'How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy' is the first of six books in the 'How To Save The World' series.

Great first book from an up and coming author. Love the twist and turns, anyone who has the slightest sense of humour will enjoy this book! Can't wait for the second instalment. 9 out of 10!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unreal, Surreal Humour 5 Aug 2014
By Zapple
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Quirky, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy-esque, surreal, Geordie - just some of the ways I can think of to describe this book. If your humour is out there and you're familiar with different accents and slang (or if you're not) then you should love this alien comedy by Charles Fudgemuffin. It doesn't follow your usual formulaic plot and many moments are pretty random - but that's why I like it. Give it a try and have a good laugh.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like - Geordie aliens 17 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a blast. lovable characters, funny dialogue and not an anal probe in sight (always a good thing).
Would thoroughly recommend. Is an engaging, light hearted read.

Please note that this is only part 1 and 2 of book one of a trilogy. What that means is that you might find yourself looking forward to a conclusion that never arrives, unless you get the other books.

I read the sample, and found it quite refreshing. The sample was easy to read and fun. I liked it because traditional world class novels start in the beginning of nowhere, talking about characters you don't know and expecting you to do the work of taking in everything, but this book did not require any thinking. For only £1.50, how could I go wrong?

The rest of the book is written in the same style as the sample, consisting of about 90% dialogue. This is not the normal way to write a book, but not necessarily a bad thing. The story has a clever plot and the author has obviously put a lot of thought into it.

On the down side, there are some areas which could be improved:

- The target audience is immature males. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you don't like reading hundreds of pages about "baps", don't read this book.
- It's too long. Eric, the main character, is a bit stupid, and while this is the main reason this book is fun to read, he does tend to repeat many things either in his thoughts or his dialogue. This, combined with endless the dialogue on "baps", make the book about three or four times longer than it needs to be.
- Most of the book is written in a Geordie accent. I don't really know what a Geordie accent is, probably because I didn't grow up in the UK. It started off being a bit humorous at first, but as the book goes on and on, it gets quite annoying. After reading many pages, I found myself starting to think in an accent that I don't even know.
