Nothing But a Smile by Steve Amick
Nothing But a Smile

Todd Claus, July 15, 2009

This book is fun to read! From cover-to-cover this book is smart and sexy and a completely satisfying experience. As much as I'd like to loan this book to friends, I'm not going to. It's going to stay in the bookshelf until I'm ready to read it again. If friends want to read it, they'll have to do it at my house.

Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse by Victor Gischler
Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse

Todd Claus, March 30, 2009

The Christopher Moore association I get: Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse is absurd, fast-paced, entertaining, and funny in the same way the Angry Beavers cartoon is absurd, entertaining, and funny. It's just not as clever. I'm less sure of the Quentin Tarantino comparison. The only film of his that I can think of that resembles Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse, in any way, is Sukiyaki Western Django; and that isn't even a Tarantino film.

Despite the fact that Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse is filled with one-dimensional characters and half-baked ideas that aren't quite clever, it still manages to be a fun read. In many ways it's the perfect book to take to the beach: time flies by and you won't mind leaving it behind when you go home.
