Review: Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong

I’m a big fan of author David Wong, and his latest family-friendly-read-aloud-to-the-kids book, Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick, is awesome. As usual, Wong combines outrageous humor with surprisingly deep, three-dimensional characters, and very little literal dick-punching.

Zoey is young, smart, deeply sarcastic, a little overweight, owns a cat called Stench Machine, and has unexpectedly inherited the most powerful criminal enterprise in Tabula Ra$a, a near-future dystopian city that makes Las Vegas feel like a nursing home. When both other crime bosses and the rabid citizenry of Tabula Ra$a rise up against her for no good reason, Zoey and her band of wildly lethal protectors must figure out what’s going on.

Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick is the second book of the Zoey Ashe series, which starts with Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits.

Recommendation: Yes. Read it. David Wong is one of the funniest writers in America.
