Johnathon Sabastian-Kent’s Monthly Book Review
The old addage of ‘give enough monkeys a typewriter and sooner or later they’ll write a story worthy of Shakespeare,’ has almost come true for a group of novice writers located near Lancaster, England…. Well almost that is.
Last month, it was reported to me that a clever group of 11 rare red-arsed monkeys almost proved the theory by eventually pounding out a 308 page story that was collaced into a book of sorts.
For the human leader, finding a willing publisher was the easy part, but deciphering the gibberish and making sense out of it took awhile longer. Finally, after months of drunkedness, infighting, several ingrown hairs on several monkey’s asses, and finally, having one of their own thrown to the lions for being afflicted with dyslexia, the human master in charge persuaded the monkeys that perhaps, just perhaps, some banana money could come their way providing they all share equally with paying the publisher to print the book….‘Porking Review’
The story’s premise is pretty deeply buried within a collection of humor deficeit montages of daily life in a small English town. The quaint town populated by everyday, normal, hardworking people, see their lives and social mores turned inside out with pompass ridicule as seen through an elitist’s eyes who portends to be a craft-wise literary artist. Porking Review is an amusing satirical collection of absolute nonsense foisted upon tasteless readers who gladly part with upwards of $15.00US for a chance to read what most critics are calling…Pure monkey words!
According to editor Gary More, “The Porking Review contains all of the good things that the discerning reader would expect from a book, including alot of words.” More also claims that most readers ‘chuck it into the fire once they’ve read it.’ We can only assume that the people of Porking are poor and firewood is indeed scarce, and perhaps books of this low caliber are cheaper than fireplace fuel.
My review on this book rates….One Star!
Next month I’ll be reviewing the runaway best seller and two-time Crenshaw Award Winner…‘Hog Jaw Detective Agency’
