Jake Wilson writes like Judy Blume, if Judy Blume were into sex, drugs, and conspiracy theories.

"The procedure is wake'n'bake, and run'n'gun..." which is one way to describe Jake Wilson's novel Panic and Vomit, in the best of senses mind you. In a story that is part thriller and part social commentary, you follow three "subjects" who, as I felt while reading, really were aspects we all have as human beings that can be related to whether in not letting go of the past, holding too tight onto the reigns to the future, or the cynicism of 'knowing' the truth while holding onto nothing more than the frailty that is a faux reality. It really does speak to you on a lot of levels as you follow the characters' lives into the wee hours of the night.

Overall the novel sends you on a drug induced joy ride that will more than likely inspire/frighten/stir you, and more than likely will leave you, much like Subject 1 - haunted. Definately well worth the price of admission, Jake Wilson's Panic and Vomit is a piece of literature you do not want to pass up.

Don't Panic. Just Read.
...Then Panic.

Format: Paperback
absurd. horrifying. romantic. hilarious.

Following the lives of each subject ends up taking you on an emotional rollercoaster. by the end, you feel as if you really know and can relate to each of them (then again, maybe you -do- know them...)
Makes you wonder what of our world is real, and what may just be your nightmares. makes you think twice about men in white suits and what They have planned for us. it may just also make you think twice about spending another lonely night in front of the tv with your usual meal.

It looks like a heroin-sick angel vomiting rainbows.
It sounds like an explosion...
It's all f***ed up and beautiful.

I have never seen a book written in this way. Delightful. I love the cynical/realist POV of the author. This book is wickedly witty, enjoyably sarcastic, and takes a far more realistic view of life. This is a great book and I will definitely recommend it to the cronies.
