This is the story of the mother puncher called Ed Means, who is an ex-boxer. Ed isn't actually a bad guy. While Ed does believe that bringing a baby into an overpopulated world is wrong, he doesn't really like punching mothers, and tries to avoid doing any real damage. He really doesn't like the way most fathers run off and hide to avoid their punishment. Really, the only reason he hasn't quit is because he's afraid someone who does like hitting women will take over.
Despite having a job that most people would find abhorrent, Ed comes across as a likable guy, and when bad stuff starts happening to him--because of stalker fans, psychotic rivals, and protesters--you rally can't help but feel sorry for the guy.
Mother Puncher is about a man named Ed Means. Due to overpopulation of the earth, humans breeding is highly frowned upon, but naturally people do it anyway, so the system set in place is for every birth, there is a man whose job it is to come and punch the parents in the face as a deterrent from breeding again. This is Ed's job. He is a mother puncher.
A hundred pages isn't long to really get into a deep story, but the story we have in his book is still exciting and entertaining. Enough so to keep you reading.
Gina Ranalli's books are always just slightly askew from the norm, but not so much that things aren't recognizable. Any of her books are bound to be engaging and entertaining, and this one is no exception.
This book is super fun. It obviously speaks of a deeper social commentary, which I will never pass up when it is anti-"Big Brother." This book takes what is normally a very serious subject and literally punches you in the stomach with it. It still maintains a level of gravity, while upholding the absurd, strange elements found in bizarro fiction. I highly recommend this book!
As his day progresses, we meet the many unsavory people in Ed's world-among them his wife, fans, co-workers, and government protesters. A major event happens that is caused by greed and we see Ed handle the situation with an unexpected calm and peace. I liked that at the end of a very violent day, Ed turns out to be a kind, caring, and generous person. This is a wonderful, thought provoking Bizarr-o story to show that we should never judge people by their job and I would definitely recommend it!
This was the first book that I have read by Gina Ranalli and it's made me a fan. Look forward to much more from this author!
