The scathing tone the authors take with the conservative politicians in question is made more than palatable, because of their self-effacing sense of humor. It can't be offensive if they are willing to drag themselves through their own sassy, sarcastic filter as well. And believe you me, the authors pull no punches. Whether it be declaring the past presidential regime the third circle of hell, thoroughly discussing their bowel movements and hemorroidal issues, laying into Texans and rednecks, or sharing every physical shortcoming age and body type has heaped upon them, you'll have to hide behind the book as you receive disapproving glances from people as you guffaw in public.
The authors, Kat Nove and Jeni Decker, sing in perfect harmony throughout the book. Each voice is distinct enough that you always know who is talking, and can identify with each, but their sense of humor and perspective on all things earlier discussed has enough in common that it never feels disjointed between their chapters. Each one shamelessly discusses their loathing of their home and work life, and each makes no attempt to veil their self-promotion and endless plugs (which are deserved).Read more ›
There aren't many novels on the market today which are downright funny, outrageous and politically un-correct (I swear that's a word) but this is one! Kat and Jeni together are a rip-roaring writing duo whose novels need to be read. I am Australian, but having been inundated for many years by American TV sitcoms, could easily understand most of the references to jelly-livered politicians and some wash-board abbed sportsmen.
A fantastic road trip and next time I can only hope they will come to Australia to do one so I can ride behind them, poke fun and hold the camera so that Jeni's hands are free to cause even more mayhem LOL
Crikey, I will even promise to bail them out of gaol :)
