Shayne is a crass, vulgar, egocentric and physically ill woman who discovers a wormhole in her kitchen pantry - A lunatic's guide to interplanetary relationships is a non-typical boy who cries wolf story - only the wolf (wormhole) is real. Annu, an Orion native, already caught up in his own crazy adventure is the who discovers Shayne. Hit with her presence - quite literally - he finds they must work together to complete a dangerous quest - that is, if they don't kill each other first. Together they have to save a universe to help Shayne get home - but by then she may not want to.
RL Andrew does a terrific job with this story. An entertaining tale with characters, magic powers and a quest to save the universe will not get out of your head long after you finish reading.
The only thing that caught my attention was the occasional spelling mistake. Easily overlooked because the story was such a joy to read. I hear there is a book two coming. I'm looking forward to it.
Shayne James, self-styled Demi-Goddess daughter of the Great God Ki and Lunatic’s female protagonist, is an unreliable narrator, tortured by her addiction to drugs, lust for chocolate, loss of the love of her later life the Demigod Annu of Orion, and the staff of a hospital where her family committed her. Until Chapter 3: Boredom, Booze & Boobs, it is never clear whether you are reading a tragicomedy of a woman lost in her deteriorating mind in a funnier version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
From the moment a wormhole throws these two fragile characters together, their relationship becomes the central conflict of the novel. Thought they face Peace Officers, a flying car chase, human traffickers, betrayal, knives in the back, losing dear friends, an evil god, and everything mother nature throws at them, their conflict, their personal addictions, and borderline personality disorders keep them at each other’s throats, battling each other and their growing attraction.
The humor in A Lunatic’s Guide compares well with the comedic works of Donald Westlake, an author who knew quirky human and bizarre characters, though he never threw into space.
I consider this book an excellent read. You will learn nothing to enlighten your life, but if it makes you weep, the tears are the side effect of rolling on the floor laughter.
