Recent Comments "Hitler the Cat Goes West"
A poorly written but nonetheless interesting story about the dystopian society emerging after the dissolution of the United States. I enjoyed the plot despite the somewhat amateur writing style of the author. I can see how this would be a good idea for a story, but definitely wish it had been better executed stylistically. First written in 1995, the novel seems both socially and technologically dated. I'm not totally unhappy with it, but I certainly won't read it again or recommend it to anyone [...]
What happens when a writer mashes together the nihilism of The Coen Brothers, the hard nosed, hard living protagonist of a Raymond Chandler story and enough religious satire to fill the Good Book a couple times over? Clearly the answer is "Hitler The Cat Goes West". Robert G. Pielke does this and more with his tale of a future so dark you'd better wear shades."Hitler" begins just a bit uneven and it takes a couple of pages to get used to Mr. Pielke's tight writing style, but once in, the story m [...]
This was received for review via First Reads contest.Normally, I do enjoy convoluted semi-post-apocalyptic socio-political satires. However much I did want to enjoy HITLER THE CAT, I just couldn't. The writing is clunky, but serviceable; the satire comes off as tedious, rather than blackly funny, and I just could not get involved enough in the story to really care what happens to any of the characters.Stick with reading Kurt Vonnegut's novels instead.
I wasn't so sure how I felt about the book in the very beginning. I actually found myself to be confused at times because of all the characters and all the conspiracies, etc. But I quickly made sense of everything and greatly enjoyed the book. I thought the schemes were brilliant, and the writer did a great job. The entire storyline was well thought out and creative. Loved it.
HITLER THE CAT GOES WESTAs you can tell from the various ratings, there is very little "middle ground" for this book. People either love it OR hate it.This is all perfectly understandable.In all cases, I appreciate people spending the time to read it.Bob Pielke

I received this book free by entering a First Reads contest on . I finished reading this finally, life got in the way. The book was interesting but the writing needed some polishing. I found myself confused by the number of characters and plots that were "afoot". Normally dystopian post-apocalyptic is a genre right up my alley, but this one needed a little work. The idea was there, it just needed some finishing, but the originality was great.
I received this through and thank Mr. Pielke for the opporturnity to read a book of a genre I don't normally read. There were moments of enjoyment in this satire but I found the story did not hold my attention.
I won this through a ARC contest. In the interests of being kind, I got through about 40 pages (or roughly 1/3rd of the book) and couldn't take any more. If there's anything redeeming about this, I couldn't find it.
Received from . It was a weird, fun read - just what I was in the mood for.
Much of the action and dialogue seems to be to shock the reader and to divert attention from the predictable plot and one-dimensional characters.
