If that title did not make your mouth water already, feel free to continue reading my review! You will either want to read this book right away and run to your next online retailer (I don’t think you will be able to find this at your local book store…) – or you will be disgusted and never want to read my blog again. I just have a handful of readers, so I really hope for the first option.
Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wasteland is a book of the bizarro fiction genre. This genre is fairly new, it exists since about the early 2000s. So what is this genre about? Imagine cult films, like the famous midnight movies from the 70s, Takashi Miike films, Tim Burton, maybe Quentin Tarantino – so cult films – as books. Really weird, sometimes disturbing, absurd, satiric storytelling is what bizarro fiction is all about. Now that, I believe, is really polarizing. Either at this point you are really interested or you already know you’ll hate those books.
I started reading this book almost by accident. I had just gotten my Kindle and my boyfriend was looking through the available books and read this title out loud. We laughed about it, since it sounded like the worst book in the world. I told him to get the sample on my Kindle and read it to me while I was getting ready. And we were surprised how good it sounded! After finishing the sample, I knew I wanted to read the whole book! It was that good.
The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world. After almost everything was destroyed by a nuclear war, the only remaining company took over and formed a new country – McDonaldland. The McDonalds regime is strikt, cooking is against the law, you have to eat three times a day and pray five times. The government controlls every aspect of life. But there is something terribly wrong with the people of McDonaldsland. The more sex the women have, the more they turn into giant wolves, and some man grow extra limbs. Of course, McDonaldsland cannot let this happen. So sex is against the law and women who broke the sex law and the male mutants are thrown out of McDonaldsland into the Wasteland, where the wolves live.
No, seriously, I just loved the story. The setting is brilliant, it is twisted and weird and all I could wish for. The plot was action packed and fast paced, and there where a lot of fight scenes. This is definetly not a book for sensitive people. There is blood, gore and characters that you just learned to like are brutally killed. There also is sex and rape, as I said, not for sensitive people. Oh, on this note, don’t read the book right before you go to bed. You certainly don’t want to dream of the stuff that goes on in this book. I can tell you that.
I really don’t want to give too much away, if you are interested, you really should experience it on your own. If you are into weird, disturbing, satiric cult films, I think you will love this book as much as I did. If you hate that kind of films, you certainly don’t want to touch this book with a ten-foot pole.
5/5 Nuff said.
