Underneath the hilarity, though, Malloy has a lot to say on the nature of mankind, and on our relationship with death. When death is no longer looming in everyone's futures, what happens to religion, to the elderly, to the next generation, to crime?
Bang Bang is witty and crude, thoughtful and dark, refreshingly deep and full of alcohol, written by an excellent storyteller who's not afraid to let a few dead bodies get in the way of a great book.
The book is full of humorous characters and situations. The 'Bang Bang' literally is taken from the Beatles song 'Maxwells Silver Hammer'. Two friends who own a funeral home decide to drum up business by caving in the skulls of certain people with a silver hammer, as extreme damage to the brain is the only way to prevent the healing of the body by a miracle drug called 'Youthimax'.
Well as the book progresses it becomes apparent that there is much more to the killings than just to make some money. The book really goes deeper than the dark humor that it is labelled. Patrick Malloy has written a story that deserves to be given the credit it is due as being intelligent and asking questions, as well as recognized for the humor he injects in it.
A good read. I will be looking for more work by this author.
Dystopian without the angst ridden teens who try and save the world and make it all better.
