Happy Monkey Monday/Milkman Review

Happy Monkey Monday!

Ian ,over at E Dog's Blog who actually gave me the idea for Monkey Monday, has had a book published recently! See it up there? (not the monkey, the book!). Well....Ian has a fantastic imagination and a wonderful creative sense as evidenced not only by his writings but by his web comic "Adventures of the S Team", consisting of scenes made by Ian out of leggos....It's really rather funny!

I just finished reading his book. Mind you, I'm not the biggest fan of science fiction books. I do like watching sci-fi flicks, and if I had a choice between the two I'd chose the movie.

However, since I've been reading Ian's blog and read one of his other stories he wrote in the Novel Writing Month competition, I was eager to read The Milkman. I mean who else knows a real life published author???

I loved the book...yes, this non sci-fi reader, actually loved it. It had me hooked in the first two pages. The story flowed easily and I couldn't wait to see what happened with the two main charactors along with the rest of the crazy crew. In spite of the fact that it's touted as science fiction, it's the funniest sci-fi i've ever read. His comedy shines through as he writes the story and shows how the aliens intend to take over the earth....and explains how all those nasty rumors about aliens came to be. It was up-beat, funny, romantic (yes), and down right silly that I actually laughed out loud on the train when I was reading it.

Well done Ian!! I highly recommend that you read it....Go visit Ian and get to know him and his blogs and you'll see what I'm talking about.
