Ron's reviewThis book had a strong beginning and an intriguing premise of a man, Wayne Norton, from 1968 who is cryogenically frozen and revived 300 years later to a totally changed world. A world after 'the Crash' when technology failed, wiping out all the world's information and history because man had become so dependent on technology that the written word, books and paper were considered redundant. "No trees, no paper. Apart from the most ancient and precious volumes, books were recycled for [...]
How the hell did this guy get Neil Gaiman to provide a promotional cover blurb for this this this book?I laughed once. At the end of Chapter 26 when Kiru finds out that vomiting on two aliens that look like grey beach balls is considered foreplay. Oh dear I just gave away a spoiler.And it has 3 endings. I'd just skip to the last one. It begins when he hands Kiru the ring which is another spoiler of sorts.Bikini Planet has no relation to the soft-core porn movie of the same name. In fact, the por [...]
I admit it. The blurb by Neil Gaiman amused me enough to buy this book. I notice in retrospect that he says nothing about the actual story.Unfortunately, you spend most of this book doubting the veracity of any plot related information you receive. Or, in fact, any world related information you receive. Everybody is an unreliable narrator except, presumably, the two PoV characters. It's annoying in the same way that the conversation with the first year philosophy student is after he's discovered [...]
Bikini Planet by David S. Garnett is a gem of a book worthy of the highest literary praise. The writing is amazing. I wouldn't be surprised is Garnett won many awards for this book. His writing style is so unique, words can't DESCRIBE the talent that is there. The plot is riveting. In fact, the story-line will leave you speechless. This book brought me to tears. I cannot describe the characterization of Wayne Norton or the page-turning dialogue. It's like nothing I've ever experienced before in [...]
A title in search of a plot, one that's never found. I sincerely hope Mr. Neil Gaiman was compensated well for writing the blurb, 'cause I feel suckered. For a while I followed: the hideously inept protagonist, a niave detective, gets frozen for reasons that aren't ever made clear (yeah, the mob wanted him out of the way for a while. So no one ever unfroze him during all the issues that happened afterwards?) and wakes up in the distant future. He then has some wacky adventures with some space-mi [...]
Bikini Planet (2000) by David Garnett. I confess, I picked this up because I needed some light summer reading, and let's face it, the title made me chuckle. _Bikini Planet_ isn't bad, but halfway through, the tongue-tied 21 year old native Las Vegas cop suddenly morphs into a talkative British chap. Then Garnett leaves the reader with not one, not two, but *three* different endings to the story. Despite the title, I wouldn't recommend this as a "beach read." (August 2007)
This is, by far, the worst book I have ever read. I choose this book because the blurbs on the cover said it was the next "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." With that loftly comparison in mind, I sat down to read the book. There was no comparison, and the statement just highlighted the fact that this book was awful.
d then, about 50 pages in, Garnett lost the plot.I started writing a review of this book.The flowers are late, because it's cold outside and winter won't let go.Did you think this book made sense?Oh, look a butterfly.OCD. ADHD. Because.There are sex scenes in the book. Sort of.Hey, it's sunny, but it's cold.Hopefully, this review made more sense to you than the book.
I expected more from the title. Okay comic space opera with a Rip Van Winkle waking up in a time not his own trope thrown in.
I actually didn't finish this one. So many poor choices. The hilarious non-blurb from Neil Gaiman should've warned me not to bother but I thought he was just trying to be funny.
Possibly one of the strangest books I've ever ready. Disjointed and very strange but saved by a quirky humor infused dialogue.
quite fun to read
Amongst the boring dialgoue, forgettable characters, and horrible plot this books has almost nothing going for it except weird alien sex.
