REVIEW: Don't Eat the Glowing Bananas by David D. Hammons
In the post-apocalyptic wasteland of what was once the United States of America, all Hank Rosetta wants is to experience 5 star dining and find the answer to why the bombs were dropped, thus ending the world as we knew it. Sure, he'd also settle for not being eaten by cannibals or attacked by any other sort of radioactive mutant.
His quest for knowledge leads him to New Dallas where his hopes for answers just might be found. Too bad the tyrannical dictator claiming to know the truth isn't exactly trustworthy. Hank finds allies in some unlikely candidates, namely Lewis, a regenerating, tentacle armed mutant and a Zoe, a katana-wielding assassin hellbent on revenge. This trio has some hilarious adventures battling against pirates, dancing zombies, and more.
When I saw this book cover, title and description, I knew that it was one I just had to read. It's unique and has the kind of humor where you bust out laughing. I liked the great message regarding the state of the world and how easily it could all go awry as well as the commentary on why it's important to have and uphold the quest for knowledge.
Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
