So begins Elmore Hammes' Not Fit For Human Consumption, with a cast of fully-fleshed-out characters, each with their own story and personal agenda, in some way involved in the fate of life as we know it on good old planet Earth.
We meet Henry again as he flies to his destination and follow his obsession with a beautiful fellow passenger as he becomes convinced she is his soul-mate. I enjoyed Henry's imagination as he endows her with glowing attributes and schemes to meet her. Unbelievably, his plan actually works, and I waited for him to tell her about the Hedgehog Network and ruin his chances. But that conclusion would be obvious, and Hammes does not do "obvious."
Hammes calls his book a comedic farce, and it is indeed funny; but farce is often associated with the superficial, while the human characters engage you and have depth. I can't say the non-humans have quite the same depth, but it's a close thing. They have history and personality, which makes them real, and not as far down the food chain as we like to think.
Mr. Jamison is a dedicated teacher of 25 years, musing on his life past and present and trying to figure out what motivates his students.Read more ›
It is a relatively easy read. It is a farce. It is about death. If you know the story of the G'Gugvuntts and Vl'hurgs from the Hitchiker's Guide, you pretty much have the entire concept of this book. Yes there were some shades of Adams.
I hate to discourage people, but I wouldn't spend my time reading this. I spent too much time looking at the progress bar on the bottom of Mr. Kindle wishing that it was closer to 100%.

It was okay enough to keep reading, and it did start to come together at the end. But I found the end unfulfilling. I guess I just don't get it. Read morePublished on September 12, 2012 by LetsBeFrank
While billed as a farce, which it probably qualifies as, it just isn't all that good a read. The story is mostly a whole bunch of disjointed stories of random people and animals... Read morePublished on September 5, 2012 by Lothus
