Zaftan Miscreants by Hank Quense
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For me it was HILARIOUS! There wasn't a single page where I didn't snicker, giggle or just laugh uncontrollably! If I were rating simply for myself I would have given a solid 5 stars instead of 4. The only reason I held back one star is because I KNOW there are people out there who just wouldn't get it and well, they just shouldn't bother to pick it up cause the brilliance of it would be wasted on them!
So, the characters are surprisingly relate-able for being whacked out biologically backwards aliens and droids/computers! I think I liked Sam the best and really got sucked into her trials to deal with being human-like yet not human. Though Sam touched my emotional side and became my favorite character, Klatze and her 3 bleeding uteruses was a close second. Yes three bleeding uterus's ... simultaneously bleeding.... I think I've said enough!
The story line itself was not just one cut and dried road, it had a lot of little twists and side-stories and I don't want to give away too much but a lot of the goings-ons could really be paralleled to things happening here and now. Life, love, government, deception, lies, hope, despair, it's all in there wrapped up with some of the best satirical humor I've ever read. Just like a good spaghetti sauce IT'S IN THERE.
Once you pick up this book and take a taste, you don't wanna put it down til your overly full and sated.
I would recommend this first to anyone with a sense of humor! Secondly to all fans of sci-fi who are looking for something just a little different.
Come to think of it...ya know what? Remember that last star I was gonna leave out? The hell with that. I give this book the full 5 stars!
