Overview

You're on the run from the cops and need a place to disappear somehow. Luckily you happen across a secret ocean in the middle of Wyoming. An undiscovered world of zombies and pirates that, according to maps, couldn't possibly exist. But here it is, a vast white sea that is made of some kind of greasy blubber substance instead of water.

Reading this book is like being mugged and beaten by the living incarnation of Weird, then taken to the hospital of Insanity and put on an I.V. drip of Awesome. Mellick and Donihe meld two separate plots into a beautiful, disgusting whole that had me grinning ear to ear as I read and re-read each diverging storyline until I was as screwed up as a 100 year old lard-drinking fecophile pirate.

Soaring my heart with pleasure while simultaneously stinking up my soul, the plot is deliciously repugnant. Placing you as the main character that is fleeing from the cops because of a criminal indiscretion, you are thrown three choices that even the devil would pity you for. Sorry kids, but no matter which way you choose, it¿s not going to be pretty. Believe me, I know, I read that book three times and took three different directions. Each time is different, the pace varying with the path you choose; both are chaotic. I loved it. Don¿t tell me, you feel ill? Well, if you¿re going to read this book, I suggest not eating for twenty-four hours. That way, you¿ll only dry heave. If you think you can survive the story and the characters, I guarantee you won¿t be able to get rid of the nauseating atmosphere. The stench of rot and grease will accompany you throughout the day. Donihe and Mellick, known for their nihilistic style of writing, combined turn out a story that shows their rebellious ways and anarchistic thinking. The two styles are interchangeable and flawless. There is no break in the book where you can honestly say, ¿Oh, this is Donihe¿ or ¿This is definitely Mellick¿. Who knew I¿d love cerebral punk so much. The cast is a round-up of extreme caricature-like reproductions of characters from juvenile books; you know, except for the fact that they are all crazy and demented. The misogynists of society, these players are insane, criminal, and disgusting. This, of course, makes them hilarious ¿ much like watching people fall. Devoid of any and all history, their level of crazy is what makes them memorable. After you read it, you won¿t remember the names. You¿ll remember that one character saved pirate¿s stools ¿painted it gold- and then either saved it or ate it.
