Publisher's Summary

Five hundred years from now, ex-corporate mercenary Koko Martstellar is swaggering through an easy early retirement as a brothel owner on The Sixty Islands, a manufactured tropical resort archipelago known for its sex and simulated violence. Surrounded by slang-drooling boywhores and synthetic komodo dragons, Koko finds the most challenging part of her day might be deciding on her next drink. That is, until her old comrade Portia Delacompte sends a squad of security personnel to murder her.

Fun action

Action thriller with not a lot of depth but it is pretty good. I had a weird feeling of déjà vu the entire book like I read it before but I couldn't have. I liked it enough that I will probably read the next one when it comes out.

Solid premise, might work better as a movie

What did you love best about Koko Takes a Holiday?

The premise and lead character more than anything else. The cyberpunk setting is quite nice and I quite enjoy the more satirical elements that seem pulled straight from a Paul Verhoeven flick. Honestly, I'd think it would work better as a film, not just from the random commercials throughout that help build the world, but because the present tense narration reads more like a screenplay than a novel.


Would you recommend Koko Takes a Holiday to your friends? Why or why not?

Depends on the friends. Know a few who would be put off by the gratuitous violence and sexuality on display, but others who would be sold on it. Definitely the kind of book I'd recommend to any friends who enjoy a good old action romp.


Which scene was your favorite?

The poker scene. The banter between Koko and Flynn is great and sharp. Definitely the high point.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'm horrible with taglines. Seriously, don't ask me this kind of thing.


Any additional comments?

Great listen if you're looking for something a little less serious to spend your time with.
