My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Note: Read 10/7/2011; reposting review in preparation for a giveaway on my blog next week
Book Info Genre: Satire, quirky humor Reading Level: Adult
My Synopsis: Fred Underwood, a former English teacher and current delivery carrier, is fed up with the high price of gas. He believes the oil companies are price gouging and decides to take a stand. Together with his friend Zoe X. Quinn (that X is important – read the book and you’ll understand), he hatches a plot to not only get some attention to the problem with the oil companies, but to make a bit of money in the process. What he doesn’t expect is for the Big Oil companies to sit up and take notice …
My Thoughts: Filled with intriguing characters, and an amusing subplot involving skateboarding gamers, Spill is a comic tour de farce that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys political satire, generally humorous story-lines, and great writing. Randy has outdone himself on this one – give it a read as soon as possible!
