REVIEWS – Music is Over! – Ben Arzate

Poverty, Power & Pornography
In a Ben Arzate story, you shouldn’t expend energy by comparing it to anything else because it will turn on a dime, heading in a wholly different direction from where it started out.

In spite of its basis in this esoteric bit of underground rock history, Music is Over is not an oral rock biography, nor is it the noise rocker’s long-awaited autobiography. The book’s jacket might suggest an American bizarro take on Céline’s Journey to the End of the Night, but it isn’t that, either.

Goodreads Review:
Moon Mayor – Chris Meekings

This book seriously had a little bit of everything inside. There’s zombies, alien invasion, pixies, bears, Mr. Frosty. I did get lost about half way through this read because it was SO much more bizarre than I had anticipated, but I pushed through and I’m glad I did because this story was incredible. The cover is stellar and in typical bizarro fashion, the story goes out on a killer note 🤣 3/3.5 🌟

Goodreads Review:
Exercise Bike – Carlton Mellick III

What a bizarre read! I loved the concept of the health food dystopia. It was a pretty original and creative idea. I could imagine the bike and the outfits and the bike store perfectly. I giggled a lot while reading, was even appalled a few times! The ending wasn’t at all what I was expecting. Overall, this was a fun read. It kept me entertained. 4 🌟
