If you enjoy stories that read like an Adult Swim cartoon, this rather short (serialized) book may be for you. If you are not one who enjoys shows like The Family Guy, South Park, etc. I would not recommend it. The characters are goofy, the plot is light and weak, and the vulgar language is over the top excessive. This book is not for anyone easily offended by vulgar language or childish poop jokes.
The story itself is unique and somewhat humorous like “Agent to the Stars”, without the things that made that book entertaining for me. This book for me was all over the place and could easily be listened to by some with ADHD as it continued to jump around like a dog seeing a squirrel. It was difficult for me to focus or take the book seriously; although it is a comedy I still wanted more depth.
The book, like TV cartoon comedies, attempts to insult nearly ever people group or subject. It deals with gender issues, racism, illegal immigrants, etc. Again, if you are offended by this material, I would say this book is not for you.
The narration of this book was done by Davis Dear, which was a new narrator for me to listen too. He currently has a mix of book genres found on Audible, most of them shorter works; three hours or less. The audio was well produced and I could not find any artifacts such as pops, clicks, or swallows while listening. Mr. Dear was able to voice the different characters and their inflection quite well. He gave the book’s characters’ life and made them unique in their own way. I would listen to other audio materials by this narrator in the future.

I cannot fault Mr. Richard for cautiously not making predictions to make his book seem as if it actually set in 2030, but what results is the book obviously being written in this day and trying to pretend it is set in the future.
I stopped reading after the chapter of shameless self-promotion (complete with links to each book’s Amazon page — will Amazon even be a thing in 2030?), about 23% of the way through. I did not dislike the book, but I didn’t like it enough to feel the need to finish it.
