Publisher's Summary

The year is 2031. The United States has sealed itself off from the rest of the world. The state of the country is dire; the Constitution is ancient history, the poverty level is at an all-time high, and there is more corruption in the government than ever before. And oh yeah, Mel Gibson is president. But something is wrong with Mr. Gibson. He doesn't seem quite...human. What unfolds is a battle unlike any other. Bring on the Invaders, a secret society whose mission is to destroy the unknown forces in D.C. and take back this country.
From Marc Richard, author of Degrees of Separation and Those Eyes, comes a dark political science fiction thriller-comedy the likes of which you have never witnessed. Dystopia has never been this funny.

All the PAID FOR REVIEWERS, said this was great. It was funny in parts, but it was more politics and not so much science fiction. This is not John Scalzi or Christopher Moore. If your not getting paid to listen, than I suggest you spend your money elsewhere.

Mr. Richard is going places..... Probably hell .... And they will be glad to see him.

I have to admit I thought this whole thing was a joke of some sort when I first saw it on FB. Then seeing FREE I assumed it was going to be horrible. I'm very pleased to say I was wrong on both accounts. It's pretty dang funny. I was reminded of Christopher Moore ( who I adore) and I can't wait to read ( listen to )more of Marc Richards works.

" Ha, ha, ha, ha. Bleep, bloop. "

Would you listen to DAVE! (A Novel from the Future), Part 1: The Invaders again? Why?

I just loved this book. Great narration of a funny, funky, irreverent, dystopian, almost stream of consciousness, piece of writing, it made me laugh out loud - something I do far too infrequently nowadays.
It starts as a chain email letter in which recipients are invited to say something about themselves then pass it on; but it pretty soon gets hijacked by a single author for his own ongoing story. Set some 15 years into a future where Mel Gibson is President and the USA is completely surrounded by the wall started by Trump, it pours out a soliloquy of angst against the powers that be, social isolation and interaction, loves and dislikes, moral (and immortal) disintegration and the subject's own recruitment into a spurious attempt to back the enigmatic Dave in his attempt to wrest the power for himself and hopefully his followers. Oh, did I mention the aliens? All as the email writer goes about his daily business.
As narrator, David Dear is perfect, capturing the fast talking, rather supercilious tones of the main email author. Slick and delicious, the underlying humour just oozes from his voice. I have not heard this narrator before but will certainly look out for him in the future.
As I will also look for more by Marc Richard.
Do not buy this book if you are repelled by sexual innuendo, irreverent takes on life and society and are shocked by slight dalliances with political incorrectness. Nor if you insist on a simple, straightforward story. But if this isn't you, go get this book now and enjoy. I'm off to look for Dave II.
Thank you so much to the rights holder from whom I received a complimentary copy of Dave, part 1, the Invaders, via Audiobook Boom. It has really brightened my day

A Futuristic Romp

*Please note - This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.*

I feel torn over this review because on the one hand I did enjoy this fast-paced and very silly book, with quite a bit of biting satire (especially near the start) and some great ideas. I especially liked the e-mail correspondence at the start. There are some moments of toilet/obscene humour, which is not really my type of thing, but it wasn't enough to put me off the book and I thought the narration was great. I did find it a little confusing at one point where there was a jump in time and I at first thought I must have missed something.

However my big problem with this title is that it is only the first of three parts of the book 'Dave', so it is both shorter than I would have liked and (in my opinion at least) ended mid-story. More importantly it means the whole book costs three credits. When I compare that to all the 5 star books I can buy with one credit this makes it seem too expensive to me, which is a real shame as I did enjoy it.

So in conclusion I would definitely read another of the author's books and I think this is (so far at least) a fun story, but not three credits worth.
