Once he makes up his mind to get his eyes back, Norman crosses paths with Zoe, who just left her boyfriend, Walter. And Zoe is harboring secrets of her own...
You never know how weird a particular book in the New Bizarro Author series is going to be until you dig right in. While this is only my third book in the 2011-2012, NBA's, I'll be surprised if any of the rest are weirder than this.
Party Wolves in my Skull is an odd book, no two ways about it. How many other books have you read with eyeballs that want to marry each other, pot-smoking wolves living inside a man's skull, and woman-walrus relations? I hope that you say one, including this one.
I'm kind of at a loss for words on this one. The way that the relationship between Zoe and Norman developed was pretty realistic considering one of them always wears stilts and the other has a wolfpack in his head. Walter the walrus was the stereotype abusive boyfriend, though being a walrus set him apart from most of his ilk. Things were resolved nicely by the end. Things got a little dicey when Walter showed up and started kicking ass.
That's about all I have. Party Wolves in my Skull is a road book featuring a lot of strange things. It's the perfect gift for the walrus enthusiast in your life. 3.5 out of 5.
