"This particular Anonymous has decided to take a fistful of drugs and gone
on a literary genre-bender... punchy and witty... reading this mad book
feels like riding one of those bikes with square wheels... a slightly
strange experience but a lot of fun" -- The Daily Sport, 2nd June 07
Make sure you keep the big light on. -- Manchester Evening News, July 07
"Possibly drug-induced lunacy of a book" - 4 stars
-- Zoo Magazine, July 07
"This caused quite a stir in its original self-published form
on the internet, but now you can hide behind the settee to read it. Make
sure you keep the big light on." -- Manchester Evening News, 14th July 07

Anyone of these characters alone would be interesting enough for their own novel but they are pretty much all stereotypes but mixing them all together in one small town makes for a hilarious, engrossing and utterly unpredictable read that is brimming with acerbic one-liners, lashings of stylistic violence that would fit happily into any summer blockbuster movie, not to mention a share of gore that would put Wes Craven to shame.
Overall, this book is good. If you like dark humor with off- kilter characters and plots that are both abstract and profound, you'll enjoy this, just beware the liquor. Thank you.
Now to the story. "drug induced lunacy" as one critic described it!... Oh how true that is. In a good way of course. Lots of blood, guts, killings, shootings, dirty mexican (I think) bars, bounty hunters, monks, a hit man named ELVIS!, vampires, werewolves, mystery and intrigue. what more could you ask for in a book?!
Its most definately an easy read. Nothing that you need to rack you brains over. Nice short snappy chapters and the writing isnt exactly clever! But it describes what it needs to and gets staright to the point!
Its like a quentin tarantino film, on paper, for the 2000 generation!
Theres always a cliff hanger at the end of each chapter which is most definately what keeps the reader engaged in the book.
It is very graphic in a lot of its descriptions. And there is liberal use of the F word through out.
Its trashy and tacky, Brass and crass. But most definately an enjoyable read. Its one of those that you'll make time to read. Which is very rare for me
Overall: If your looking for an easy read with a non too serious story line, but a good plot, blood and guts, and cliff hangers at the end of each chapter. Then heres your man (book)!
Go on give it a try. You wont regret it !
(btw there is a lot of name dropping from many, many many popular films of recent times, which makes it even more funny!)
I understand that this book was self published initially and I can't say I'm surprised - no publisher worth their salt would touch it with a barge pole. Unfortunately it now seems to be developing a degree of cult appeal it certainly doesn't deserve. This book is not witty or ironic. It is not a parody of itself. It's just plain terrible.
