Interesting Read

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

I bought this book today, based on handselling by the bookstore manager.

So far, so good. I think it's supposed to be YA, but given the fact that it (appears to) deals with masturbation and demons, I'd put it at the older end of the Young Adult spectrum. :-P

Anywho, here's the synopsis:

Book of Stuart, Chapter 1:10

10 And, yea verily, Stuart did commit the Sin of Onan in the shower. And this was witnessed by his own brother who did cry out unto their mother. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

11 And the townspeople rose up against him and all Onaners, calling upon one another to tear the youthful sinners limb from unclean limb. And there was much pants wetting.

12 And lo, Stuart did join forces with the demon, Fon Pyre, and together they did set forth to discover the cause of the town's trouble.

13 And, hark! A pair of fallen angels would plant seeds of hatred unto the townspeople. And on the seventh day, Stuart did vow to rip the fallen angels a new one and layeth upon them an epic smacketh-down.

Oh, god. Please let us know if it lives up to that synopsis.

Meljean, I think you'd like this one, the humour is smart, sharp and subversive and the story touches upon some serious issues without being heavy-handed. This is a great read so far.

Oh, I think you can look inside the book on Amazon if you want a feel for the writing.
