Book: BLOPE by Sean Benham
|4 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
Sean Benhamabout this book: BLOPE is a special slice of weirdness.
Imagine that 'The Catcher in the Rye' had been written for 'Heavy Metal' magazine and you've got a good starting point for what to expect from BLOPE.
Bizarre plastic surgery, heartless colonialism, a pornographic lottery, God gifted supernatural powers, Rooster Liquor, a track meet, toilet powder, Powerblonde Eterni-coifs... BLOPE has a little something for everyone, and a whole lot of sci-fi goodness for those who like their fiction bizarrely inventive.
An adventure spanning 15 decades, 3 continents and 3 generations, BLOPE is both wide ranging and intimate. (And maybe even relatable... if you know a cast of deformed miscreants).
Poignant, funny and a little bit gross, BLOPE is one hell of a book!
Not recommended for those under 14. HIGHLY recommended for high school students who have been assigned a book report, commuters tired of staring out the window, prisoners with library privileges, or for anyone else who wants to read an adventure penned by a fresh, irreverent voice.
