Awesome Awesome by Jack Pendarvis

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm not sure I have the words to describe this book. I'll try though. It reminded me a lot of Walter Moers' Captain Blluebear books in its bizarre plot twists and surreality. But on acid. And some kind of aphrodisiac. Actually, I didn't think I'd make it past the first ten pages or so, but I kept coming back. The mix of high-brow references and courtly language, which then veers into potty humor and surfer slang is weirdly masterful. All I can say there. Not sure who I'd recommend it to, but I couldn't put it down...
