Usually this is the place where a reviewer would discuss a little bit about the plot of a book. With Atomic Lobster that's just not going to happen. The plot points are so convoluted, and the story is told in such a non-linear way that it would be impossible to do without major spoilers. This is one of those books that the reader just has to pick up and read for themselves without relying on a review to tell them what the book is about. Let's just say it's got Florida, and cruise ships, and a Clowns vs. Mimes version of Fight Club, and tourist statues, and the world's biggest bong and if that doesn't grab you I don't know what will.

The 10th in a series of books featuring Serge Storms and his sidekick Coleman, Atomic Lobster can be read as a stand alone novel but it does refer to past events so it can be a little confusing if you aren't familiar with Dorsey's previous works and repeat characters. Serge is a spree killer, a nice enough guy, but he has problems with anger management and if crossed the offender will likely end up dead in any number of ingenious and inventive ways. How does one choose between pulling off one's own head or being hit by a speeding train?

This book is hilarious, it's one of those books where you'll have the urge to read out the funny bits to your spouse, partner, guy sitting next to you on the train. Expect to get a lot of weird glances where people are wondering why you're making those choking noises when trying not to burst out laughing at inappropriate moments.

Ah, another adventure by Serge Storms and Coleman. Tim Dorsey expands his creative genius and imagination for a serial killer and his cohort.

Tim Dorsey and his hyper-active anti-hero Serge Storms are sort of an acquired taste - if you've acquired the taste, you'll enjoy this one, but otherwise it will leave you scratching your head. The humor is of the take-no-prisoners-variety, and the characters are there to serve the ever-outrageous plot. If you're an afficianado, however, you'll find this right down your alley.

OK, I'm a Serge fan and have been since Florida Roadkill but this one kind of disappointed me. I still love Serge's inventive way of handling people who upset him and his manic protection of Jim Davenport is endearing but I just wasn't much into this one. However, I am looking forward to Nuclear Jellyfish.
