    The book starts off in an article essay format Whilst it is enjoyable to read, you pray that the whole book isn t like that Indeed, it isn t, in which you finally experience the character of Dr Rip T Brash From this point on, the structure of the plot is still questionable Is there a plot I often asked I appreciate that this is a satire and will talk about such later, but I still believe that a plot must be in a place to drive the story and bring out the satire About 50% into the book, a plot is thankfully found Following Krimshaw and his discovery of his past is enjoyable and for a good while, I was praising this book As a result, the satire definitely worked The plot then moved to Lincra and Garbatron and the book almost becomes mini books, with different plots driving the story However, I do wished their was a strong theme that tied those plots together.The book ends with a rather touching message, where, throughout many times in the book, you stop and ask yourself the big questions The epi log as they call it was pointless and had no relevance to anything The bonus short story about Jupiter, however, was great and settled the end of three great characters.Due to the poor structuring and lack of plot or lack of tying theme I was almost forced to give this one star However, the glimpse of wonderful story, Mitchell Mendlow s developed characters, and rather pleasing satire, I believed it deserved another star.

    Wow Incrediblly absurd A very amusing journey through time and space If you liked Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for its crazy looping, twists and turns then you ve got to try this Got some great coorelations between how we earthlings blindly adhere to a vision of always being right In a fun, superfulious way Happy traveling

    This was reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers Favorite Greegs and Ladders by Zack Mitchell and Danny Mendlow is as far as I could tell a very convoluted, satirical critique of the way humanity is treating its planet, its universe, its fellow humans, its non human fellow inhabitants of Earth, its environment and, ultimately, its fate A very serious message is buried deep within a fantastical, science fictional, cartoonish lampoon involving such creatures as have never seen the light of day, and hopefully never will Much of the action in this tale takes place on one of 11 planets containing wriggly, walky, breathy things in the hopeless, undeveloped but reasonably entertaining to look at from a safe distance sun system of the 38 planets in the 59 sunned district of Herb , but much also takes place in various other universes and at various times spanning many millennia The primary protagonists are the decidedly non human Dr Rip T Brash the Third his faithful sidekick and Astrospeciologist whom we shall call Wilx , because that is his name and Krimshaw, the Greeg formerly known as Zook These three immortal beings basically spend the entire book travelling through time forward, backward, diagonally and sideways so Rip can make absurd wagers with Wilx, in a fruitless effort to win back everything Wilx has already won from his previous wagers.As you no doubt already have concluded, Mitchell and Mendlow are a couple very, very imaginative fellows There are made up words, names, species etc than any ten normal people could come up with if they had a lifetime to do it in One might be tempted to assume it is due to a superior source of drugs, but I prefer to believe the two are just extraordinarily creative In fact, it would seem their creativity knows no bounds I was well beyond the halfway mark before I decided this book was, in fact, a critique of the status quo Even then, it wasn t until the very final page that I was absolutely certain of this They are to be highly commended for managing to keep their readers engaged for such a long time before allowing the reader to get it Without a serious message, this is still a very entertaining, if absurd, story, which engages the reader completely However, with the realization that there IS a serious message under all the humor and absurdity, the story becomes not only entertaining, but also significant I seriously do endorse this book, and recommend that it be read by all politicians, for starters Everybody else can read it, too, with the possible exception of Investment Bankers.

    A sprawling mess of things that don t make sense I really enjoyed it, for its references to my favourite sci fi and comedy authors, for its absurdity, and surprisingly for the lack of traditional structure An extremely vicious editor would turn this into a five star book Did like.

    This book is horridly and tastelessly written And for that it is one of the most exceptionally comical stories I ve ever read It fits nicely on a shelf among the works of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett And it might also be removed from that shelf and read if you can stomach it From the first derogatory remark on the reader s intelligence, you may hate it profoundly And yet, I found it incredibly amusing And as you read it, this book just gets worse and better simultaneously That being said, it does its job exceedingly well As a writer, I ve been taught not to open a story with an overabundance of exposition But the way these gentlemen work at the process they achieve the effect of an exhausting exposition that is simultaneously a page turner So because I hate it as much as I love it, this book receives 1 and 5 stars at once Read this book if you can enjoy sci fi with a sense of humor If you cannot, by all means go and find something by Herbert or Asimov I for one look to see books from these two ingenious word masters in the future.

    As I read Greegs and Ladders by Zack Mitchell and Danny Mendlow, I couldn t help draw comparisons to Douglas Adams Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Clearly, Adams seminal work is the inspiration behind this tongue in cheek sci fi novel While I didn t find myself laughing out loud as often as I did with Hitchhiker , and the character development isn t as rich, this is a worthy effort at emulating the spirit of Adams best seller While some may complain about the lack of plot and focus, others will recognize the nod towards Hitchhiker.If you like your care free romp through a comical universe with a side of healthy cynicism towards humanity, then this might be the book for you.

    This was a freebie on the Kindle There is a story here somewhere, I just can t find it The sheer scope of the text crammed pages make reading this not only challenging, but daunting as well Not to mention the author seems to have a problem with Investment Bankers, apparently they are used as fuel for a star ship or something.There is something to be said for editorial services I was intrigued by the book s description and I don t say No to free books very often I am always willing to give something a try It is not that the book is hard to read, it isn t, it is that the story is hard to follow or find while sifting through the massive amounts of information you are given in the first 10pages 3% of the book.A valiant effort, and for the right reader, very entertaining.

    Although I enjoyed this comedic sci fi romp I cannot say it was a total success Yes it has a tongue firmly in its cheek and clearly takes inspiration from The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy however I did not find it as funny It was amusing rather than laugh out loud Perhaps this was because I felt it missed some of the satire and deep cynicism of HHGTTG.Nevertheless it was well done and clearly the author continues to add to the tale.
