Globster Time Machine Reviews
This copy is signed by Jon Meyers.
Globster Time Machine is an interesting take on science fiction bizarro. It has some similarities with Meyer's previous book on Riot Forge, Pink Planet. This one isn't quite as sleazy, but it's a whole lot weirder. A talking globster time machine takes our snide hero through a series of weird and cringey adventures through time and uh, space. There's a major theme of teen angst and failure to launch early adult sexual insecurities going on here, particularly in the first half. The weirdness really ramps up at the close though with some reptilian male virginity woes, hot mermaid porn shop clerks, and gross butt eating. And did I mention they meet a hot chick after shrinking down to enter the main character's mother's vagina? Yeah, there's a world in there. Some have mentioned the major plot deviation that happens about two thirds of the way through, and although the digression could have been edited and fleshed out a little better to flow with the main story line the plot wraps up how I expected it would in the end. And even though the main character is fairly unlikable it worked for me as a plot device to show how nasty relationships can get and how stupid people act when they end. Plus the narration often makes fun of the main characters with gratuitous third person profanity that was pretty damn funny. There were some real zingers in here. Plus this book uses the term 'doghouse' as a verb, which is always a good thing.
For me this was a horrible book and I am a great reader and fan of most all written work. I believe it starts out okay as a potential time machine/science fiction search for a former girl friend but it turns into something very odd and strange by the end. Much use of the f word that is totally unnecessary and by the end of book it has much graphic and gory sexual references. I found it extremely distasteful. In fact, if the rating above were possible I would rate it a zero.
I received this book through a First Reads giveaway. Terrible. It tries so hard to be edgy and funny, but it's painful to read. The main character is obnoxious and uninteresting. As I read this book, I tried to think of something positive, anything that I may have liked about it. I think I may have smiled once. The second half of the book turns into a weird sexual misadventure, completely ignoring the main plot and not even attempting coherency. If it was trying to be funny/shocking, it failed. If it was trying to be sexy, it managed to make every sex scene absolutely disgusting. Yikes.
I did not care for this book. The main character, Vincent, is an alcoholic and cannot have a successful relationship with a woman. He finds an alien, Globby, on the beach and Globby trys to help Vincent fix his life. This was so far fetched that it was not interesting. I could not relate to anything in this story. Maybe you will have better luck.
I was really enjoying the story until it went in a completely different direction. I kept reading thinking it'll go back to where it was heading but it didn't. The story was alright but I would have liked it more if it followed the storyline it started with. The writing was good and easy to read, it wouldn't put me off this author in the slightest :)
I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways .I thought the beginning was alright but once I read chapter 7 things got weird. Also, the twisted sex scenes later in the book just didn't seem to go with the beginning of the book. Very peculiar read.
