Format: Paperback
I was scouring Amazon for the next great action-adventure novel. I thought I'd found it here with "The David Hunter!" Picture it. An abandoned Pacific atoll, owned by a secretive billionaire playboy who has become bored with hunting the standard fauna of the island and now wants to test his primal killing wits against the most dangerous game of all: MAN! ... specifically men named David! So he kidnaps Davids from around the world--possibly, if this were SciFi, from across TIME!--and maroons them all on his private island. Little do they know that food and shelter are the least of their survival worries! Equipped with just a machete and a compass, the recluse owner of the island becomes... THE DAVID HUNTER!! Sounds great, right? Imagine my surprise when I realized that this was just the author's name. Of course, I did learn a lot about fourth and fifth century debates around sexuality, but that's hardly as exciting as this soon-to-be cinematic blockbuster! Someone PLEASE write and then film THE DAVID HUNTER! (PG-13 is ok, but I think we will need an R rating to truly capture my vision.)
