Weird Book Alert! Weird Book Alert!
I’m starting a category of Book Reviews for the Weird, Quirky and Strange books of the world. For me, “weird, quirky and strange” does not imply “BAD.” I realize that I have a hard time passing up a book that looks or seems *REALLY weird*!!!
“Delinquent’s Survival Guide To The End Of The World” by Edua Erasmus.
Rated: 3 Stars! (3 out of 5 Stars)
From the author:
“Justin and Jason are delinquent friends in a small boring town where nothing ever happens… Until the day a nuclear explosion goes off just outside of town.”
“Delinquent’s Survival Guide” is an interesting and very unusual story. If you are easily offended then you should skip this one- not because of the m/m sex but due to the boys’ juvenile antics. It is told from the voice of a very immature young man as he and his best friend suddenly find themselves survivors after a cataclysmic and devastating nuclear attack.
FYI, I had to crop the cover photo in order to display it here because I was concerned it might violate WordPress’s Terms of Service!
This definitely does not fit cleanly into a traditional genre. It is quirky and cute- if you can forgive the two boys for being “stupid kids” who probably act like jerks most of the time. (They act *pretty bad*). If you can accept that part, then you can enjoy their escapades as they find themselves confronting the end of the world, their awakening sexuality and the “friends to lovers” angst.
These boys are TROUBLE, but even trouble makers need love and affection, too!
