Review Invasion Of The Dumb Snatchers

Something is seriously wrong in America. Growing numbers of people are embracing sustainability, efficiency, common sense, and economic sanity. The rapid spread of intelligence is ruining our country and threatening our tradition of doing everything as stupidly as possible. Only one man knows what’s really happening. Only Miles Bennell, assistant manager at Burger King, knows that aliens are replacing our bodies with exact duplicates. Will he save us before the aliens destroy America? Will he get Becky, the waitress at the local Hooters, to dump her idiot boyfriend Geoffrey so he can touch her boobs? ~~ This satirical twist on the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers humorously explores the implications of our deep desire to remain stupid.

Scott Erickson's Invasion of the Dumb Snatchers (Azaria Press, 2016) will either offer a few laughs for your post-election blues or confirm your worst fears.  This is either satire of the finest order or the channeling of next week's fake news.  I'll let you be the judge.  Despite having to sort through a couple of  really glaring editorial mishaps, I really enjoyed Invasion of the Dumb Snatchers and will be keeping an eye out for Miles Bennell and his crew.  Because they're coming, people.  They're coming.

I received a complimentary copy of Invasion of the Dumb Snatchers to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
