Each chapter is told from a different perspective and it works brilliantly. The chapters are short and sharp, the dialogue is superb, incredibly funny and somehow Hilbert pulls all of these weird and bonkers characters together towards the stories wacky conclusion, where each one has their own part to play. ‘ Invasion of the Weirdos’ is a bizarro gem of a book. It is one that genre fans will devour and if you’re looking for something completely different but outrageously funny then look no further. Last year, Adam Howe cracked me up with ‘Tijuana Donkey Showdown’ and this year it looks like it is the turn of Andrew Hilbert. Fabulous and funny as.
As a side note: the cover art suits the book perfectly, so well done to Luke Spooner.
If you're looking for a new book to freak out the guy next to you on the plane, grab Invasion of The Weirdos.
That is the best way I could describe the experience of reading INVASION OF THE WEIRDOS. Coming from a hipster capital myself (Montreal), I am very aware of problems that arise when you mix creativity (or lack thereof), politics and corporate culture. There is a profound vacuum in meaning and people who deem themselves artists or "creative types" try to fill it up because it's the only way they'll ever feel like they're contributing to society. And it can either be depressing or the funniest thing.
I was reminded of Richard Linklater's Austin classic SLACKERS when I read INVASION OF THE WEIRDOS because it keeps moving between pockets of people and featuring an increasing number of characters who don't all matter to the story. This book is very light hearted, but it's Hilbert's most accomplished vision yet. He's an author you should get to know.
