"We are still talking about politics right?."

Any additional comments?

Just when the world can celebrate the end of the fears of global warming an asteroid is spotted which will crash into earth in one month's time, on April 12th at two in the afternoon. And, effectively, end all human life.
One month to find a solution.
One month for the world to unite against their common fear
Er, no.

This is a slapstick parody of power and politics designed to show people at their silliest and worst, almost inviting the reader to be offended. There is often vulgarity mixed with the humour. But it is very funny at times - more Monty Python than Douglas Adams. Especially enjoyable is the strong line of sexual innuendo running throughout and especially that between the two U.S. Presidents (yes, two. The United States having previously split in half to form the republican U.S.A. and the democrat United Blue States of America). Quite priceless and amazingly inventive. And so good to have humour in an apocalyptic situation.

The narration is excellent, holding together this loosely formed story with a myriad of voices, all distinctive, all appropriate. His foreign accents weren't too good but that just added to the fun. Altogether a bravado performance from Mr.Dear.

My thanks to the right's holder who gifted me The Miyoshi Effect, via Audiobook Boom. It both surprised and delighted me. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, but I would have to chose carefully...
