thoroughly enjoyable read; starts off with clowns and humans living together; clowns are there to make the humans happy; then something happens to turn humans against clowns....
but the clowns are innocent goshdammit and 4 young clowns set out on a journey to prove it.....
Bizarre, grim, and darkly funny, Clown Wars is an ambitious novel that honks its big red nose at the readers expectations.
Set in a version of our world that has taken a step to left into a deviant and freakish variant of the world we know and love. It is a world where normals and clowns have lived for as long as anyone can remember in an Entente Cordiale, with both clowns and normals thinking the other one is weird. However, the peace is about to be shattered when a series of Clown like terrorist attacks against the normals throws the whole world into torment, and into a war that threatens to destroy both species. It is down to a small band of clown "conscripts" to find out who is behind these attacks and bring peace back to the two bloodlines.Read more ›
Colin Clarke is a teenage clown still finding his way in the grand old traditions of tom-foolery. When his people are attacked, he steps up (not easy in a pair of oversized shoes) to help protect everything he holds dear. Much of his journey is about understanding the necessity for clowns existence, and how he fits in with the rest of the world.
Colin’s arch-nemesis is Aspic, a gloriously Machiavellian villain. Propelled by a furious rage, he will stop at nothing to destroy all clowns. Every damn one! The more you learn about his character, the more you realise just how mind-bogglingly angry he is. I’ve been pondering and I’m going to describe his actions as barely controlled seething. He seethes on every page. Fluster, Grout and Stretch are Aspic’s less than perfect minions. They are as nasty and loathsome a trio as you would ever wish to meet. Obviously, I warmed to their antics immediately. Much of the novel’s insanity can in fact be traced directly back to these three. They revel in chaos and the streets of Blueville are far more dangerous when they are around. A good (or should that be bad?) villain is, always such fun. In Blood and Apsic we’re spoiled for choice, all the villains are deliciously evil. I was particularly fond of how these characters talk to one another.
“I hate the smell of Clowns in the afternoon,” he said. “Smells like… levity.Read more ›
