It's not all fun and games, though, as the story also poses some hard questions if you scratch the seemingly mindless violence. How far should we go to protect nature? In a world full of monsters, what would it take to be the 'good guy'?
And finally, does 'good' and 'bad' even make any sense in a post-apocalyptic dystopia? Yallowitz seems to believe so, and the book does a great job of turning each of my preconceptions on its head.
In pursuit of the Jeep, the pair meet up with a collection of characters and situations where the goal seems to be to eliminate them. It’s not that the situation or characters were waiting for Cassidy and Lloyd but once the two showed up killing them appeared to be a good idea. As one can imagine there is plenty of fighting and fancy weapon use which enriches the suspense and tension.
The story and the writing are excellent, and congratulations to Mr. Yallowitz on keeping the plot moving to the conclusion. There are no lulls where the reader is tempted to turn pages just to go ahead. Quite the opposite the story itself makes the turning of pages quickly standard operating procedure to keep up with the story. The action moves at a pace that at times could be described as heart pounding. Another feature of the story is once the bad guys are dispatched the heroes can move on and not have to look over their shoulder and worry about compound issues. The idea of finality makes it a very rewarding read and is like playing a game called Chasing bedlam.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loved plenty of action and plot twists in their reading.
Lloyd and Cassidy are back and in this adventure, all bets are off. An old rival has stolen Cassidy’s jeep and now she’s out for blood. It doesn’t matter to her who she has to kill or how many, she’s going to make everyone pay.
In the same vein as filmmaker Quintin Tarantino, Yallowitz brilliantly creates a hoard of death, blood and violence all with humorous banter between the characters. Strictly speaking, this is more than dystopian fiction; it’s black humor with bloodshed.
The action is swift and the dialogue is nicely peppered throughout so as to not distract too much from the violence. Lloyd and Cassidy are hilarious while the drug gangs are blissfully stupid. All in all, a fun read.
I found the bloodbath a bit excessive, at times, but that’s just me.
I’m a sucker for a good chapter title and Yallowitz nails these:
Back with a Bang
Child of the Battle Zone
First Sex . . .
. . . Then Violence
Malice on the Mississippi
The City of Beads & Blood
The Cats, The Mouse, & The Monster
Belles of the Homecoming Harvest
Don’t Feed that Puppy!
Attack of the Pricks
Worst Sightseeing Tour Ever
Return of the Old Friend
A Lawsuit Waiting to Happen
Told You I Know a Guy
Debauchery & Dented Skulls
Vengeance with a Side of Chocolate
If you like dystopia, action, lots of gunplay, and/or a killer female main character, 1-click Chasing Bedlam today. Your future self will thank you!
Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I’d review it.
“Now, the distraction’s job is to keep you looking in one direction while a mischievous maiden of mayhem prepares her new toy somewhere else. Don’t bother running, boys, because she’ll take that as an insult.”
