Review: Apocalypse Now Now

Publisher: Century by Random House
Price: £ 8.99 ebook

Bax, a white South African, is trying to find his girlfriend and whilst attempting to do so is exposed to a world that he never knew existed. It really is some weird and crazy shizz!!

This is a story of drugs, violence, kinky sex, sprites, zombies and more. I don't know if it is fantasy or scifi or if deep down it's really a coming of age love story. All I know is that it is weirdly and gruesomely awesome! 

This isn't the YA book I was kind of expecting, it defo isn't for kids. The story takes you to the world of creature porn and the Flesh Palace, fights in parallel universes with creatures you never knew existed. It also deals with mental illness. Even though I have read the book, part of me still isn't 100% sure that it is all 'real' and what it seems to be. That, my geeks, is a very clever thing in my opinion. I have no real idea what is 'true' and what is not, however, I know what I want to be true in this book and I'm going to stick with that for my own happiness.

Not a book I really thought I would read to be honest, however on NetGalley it looked rather odd and different. I laughed (a lot), I got drawn in to the action, I kinda fell in love with Ronin and Bax and even found Esme to be a bit of a babe.

Not your run of the mill scifi or fantasy novel and defo not one for the easily offended or feint of heart. However, if you want a book that blurs the genre lines, delves in to South African mythology and has a whole heap of weird eroticism in it then this is defo one for you. 

Go forth and envelop this crazy arsed book!

Happy Reading
