Raka Varoule is an investigative reporter for the Albatross Broadcasting Company, and just an average citizen of the galactic empire. When he interrupts the emperor's "birthday party" to find it more worthy the title of "orgy", while broadcasting live, his life takes a minor change of directions.
This book is so well written, I'll have to listen to it at least one more time to "get" all of it. It reminds me of the movie "Neighbors" with John Belushi. I will defiantly be looking for more books by James Peters. I believe he is a literary genius. I whole heartily recommend this book. I received the audible version (damn glad I got the audible).
The first thing that grabbed my attention was the cover art: a blunt-smoking chimp wearing an astronaut's helmet who appeared to mock me with a sly, poo-slinging grin. Needless to say I was intrigued. It turns out to be a fantastically funny romp through space and time -- a satire full of adventure that entertained me from start to finish. Well-developed characters have plenty of attitude and some surprising secrets! David Swanson lends this story a unique voice with his narration. Definitely glad I picked this one up and recommend it to anyone looking for a jolly good time!
