Eco Station One based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Edwin Stark is a writer who, as he would say, is trapped in the hinterlands of Venezuela. This would be terrible if it hadn't inspired him to write the uproarious romp known as "Eco Station One." Eduardo Sinnombre is a man struggling to survive in the financial wasteland that Venezuela has become, so when he stumbles across a help wanted ad for a job that offers a fabulous wage, he lurches toward the chance. But from the moment he meets corpulent job offerer Thaddeus T. Barnum, representative of the evil Mucusoft software company, he knows he's stepping into a huge muck hole. That knowledge, however, doesn't dissuade him from accepting the cash-er, position. And so Eduardo journeys all the way to Eco Station One, a scientific outpost positioned ever-so-inconveniently in the rainforest, which is also smack dab in the center of Ikawiri Pigmy territory. As if having to sing his way past the vicious natives weren't bad enough, Eduardo soon finds that his guide Pedro Alfredo Mendoza dela Villahuerta Paomos y Linarez (Mendoza for short) has it in for him, and with the help of his three cousins Taco, Paco, and Manolo (the Mendoza Trio) it seems almost certain Mendoza will sabotage his new job. Populated by wacky events and zany characters (which include Harry the talking-well, signing-black mountain gorilla and Paul Culvert the bus-driving hippy who still thinks he's in the 1970s), "Eco Station One" is sure to grab you by the armpits and tickle you mercilessly right up until the last page. Read this book and enjoy a story that is as hilarious as the Stark-raving voice that tells it. Reviewed by "Maine's Other Author"(TM) Tim Greaton
