The Stench of Honolulu review ¼ 100 Us and stinky foreign land of Honolulu There they meet untold dangers confront strange natives kill and eat Turtle People kill some other things and people eat another thing and discover the ruins of ancient civilizations As our narrator says The ruins were impressive But like so many civilizations they forgot the rule that might have saved them Don't let vines grow all over you. One of the silliest most joyfully goofy books I ve ever read I laughed out loud several times reading this not on EVERY PAGE as the lunatic Ian Frazier says in his pull uote on the front cover You ok Ian and was pleasantly surprised at how much enjoyed a book that only has the merest semblance of a plot I love the dry bold idiot of a main character Handey has created here known only to us as Wrong Way Slurps a name he made up for himself and the completely brash way he treats his well meaning companion Don I loved how each section basically served as a kind of episode or sketch or something as Slurps Don barrel their way through a Honolulu that couldn t be further from the true one There is very little realism here and who cares Realism is bullshit anywayIf you re a fan of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett you re gonna like this It falls in the same category of bumbling doof stumbles from scenario to scenario inexplicably avoiding death making just about every single joke that could be made in the process The whole ordeal here is ultimately kind of pointless which in and of itself makes a joke about narrative structure that I thought was smarter than it appears to beAll that said the lack of structure can get a little out of control at times with Handey just kind of spinning off into whatever direction he feels like I guess some deep part of me does cling to structure because I am human and need to be told what to think and feel That little bit of missing constraint may have brought this into being one of my favorite books of all time but as is it s just very good I certainly hope Handey finds the time for of these

The Stench of Honolulu review ¼ 100 The legendary Deep Thoughts and New Yorker humorist Jack Handey is back with his very first novel a hilarious absurd far flung adventure tale The Stench of Honolulu Are you a fan of books in which famous tourist destinations are repurposed as unlivable hellholes for no particular reason Read on Jack Handey's exotic tale is full of laugh out loud twists and unforgettable characte. Dry Incoherent Hilarious It s basically Deep Thoughts crammed into a flimsy plot I love his stuff but I could only take so much at a time due to dryness desensitization Then I d come back to it and it was hilarious again So a 35 rounded up His tone is hysterical and I could definitely see re listening to this in the future
