With this book, it’s hard to tell. The title and the author’s name indicate that the style will be off the beaten path. The post-apocalyptic setting provides a canvas for any sort of art the writer chooses, and Gibbo Gibbs chooses some wild ideas. Characters are painted with a broad, colourful brush, speaking in comic-book dialogue full of abrupt extremes.
The Chosen One himself is constantly insulting people, and nobody seems to notice. One intriguing character is an android with a constant smile that often contrasts in a macabre way with what it is saying.
Unfortunately, all this creativity is combined with enough standard grammar and sentence structure errors to tip our opinion towards a simple lack of editing skills, which is too bad, because it detracts from the overall inventive nature of the writing.
Recommended for Young Adult readers who are looking for something a bit different.(3 / 5)
