Title: Eating Ice Cream in Armageddon II: From Dream to Reality
Author: Gabriel Bacopa
Genre: Short Stories, Satire, Dystopian
Due to the massive success of Eating Ice Cream in Armageddon Part I, Gabriel Bacopa has released a sequel no less epic and bizarre than the first:
When Trump makes the moves on Putin’s Very Very Very Distant Cousin Twice Removed, World War III ensues. Michael, an Arab loner author with a Jewish father, has to survive it with girls from an ice cream shop.
Also, includes four other comedic stories:
Traffic Jam: A man texting while driving disrupts the flow of the country:
Pillars of Salt: Two women sitting in a restaurant see homosexuals everywhere.
Searching for Cougars: A young wealthy handsome C.E.O. likes older women, then gets turned off when they lie about their age.
The Hypocrisy Foundation: A famous author and scientist develops a startling new theory, that all famous people are hypocrites.
Five amazing stories from one of the best authors of the 21st century; he’s this generation’s John Steinbeck. This work will be reflected on in 100 years as a series that classically defined life in the early 21st century. I cannot recommend this book high enough. A must read for anyone who lives in this crazy world we live in.
Traffic Jam – 5+ stars – Ludicrous but so creative. One shakes one’s head at the incredulous nature of the story but then is terrified at how this is just an exaggeration of the problems that are on every street in North America if not the world. Wonderful joy ride of ridiculousness.
Pillars of Salt – 5+++ stars – Sheer brilliance that every judgemental person should be forced to read.
Searching for Cougars – 5+ stars – Shines a spotlight on the current societal ‘need’ to pigeonhole people and judge books by their cover. Brilliant.
The Hypocrisy Foundation – 4.5 stars – Was so real to me that it was too real. Not every story in these books can be my fave I guess. Valuable for the dry humor.
Eating Ice Cream in the Armageddon II – 5++++ stars – Love the cast of characters. A laugh out loud moment just reading that! I love how reality has come from the amazing dream. The cause of WWIII is so realistic it could sincerely happen anytime in the next 3 years 8 months. It made me laugh so hard how every hitchhiker was a past crush of Michael’s. A brilliantly told tale with a strong turn the other cheek message. Couldn’t stop reading and was sad when it ended. We need a chapter of this story to come three years in the future with 31-year-old Michael marrying 19-year-old Halima. They need to get together!
My Rating: 5+ stars
