Rating 3.75/5



This book was a riot, although it’s also not for the easily offended. It follows a bunch of debaucherous young gentlemen in 1950s England when for some reason, everybody’s wives all become pregnant and the babies turn out to be aliens with laser beams for eyes.

It’s not necessarily the most realistic of books, but it is pretty entertaining and it reminded me of a sort of comedy horror take on something like The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham. I also think it was just the right length, because it would have been easy to make it double the length and to dilute it. I think that the story line could have stretched and so could the humour, but with the two of them together, I thought it was just right.

This entertaining little parody book shows us what it would be like if Donald Trump was a poet. The author basically grabbed a bunch of the weird stuff that Trump has said in tweets and in interviews and turned into found poetry.

It’s gimmicky, of course, but it’s good enough for a little bit of fun, especially if you can pick it up cheap in a charity shop. You can also read it in the space of fifteen minutes, and I think that you could enjoy it regardless of what you think of Trump the man and his politics. Grab it some time.
