There are some books which are just so funny that it is almost impossible to put them down. "The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama" by Christopher Antony Meade is one of that happy Breed. From the opening chapter, where the reader is introduced to the ravening, but musically talented, zombie Julian Faversham; to the finale and the encounter between the zombie and Barack Obama, the reader is taken on a surreal journey that takes ranges through Area 51 to the death of Adolf Hitler and a lot more besides. All these subjects are treated with an almost nihilistic irreverence, which gives a new and very funny twist to political satire. The fortunate reader might find this book to be one of the funniest he or she has ever read, but you can guarantee that the various politicians and public figures, mercilessly lampooned in its pages will find it less than amusing.
If you want to read a really good book, that will leave you laughing uncontrollably at the pretensions of those who set themselves up as our rulers, buy this one. If you are a politician or a public figure, take a "chill pill" before reading it. You will need to.
