The Zombie, the Cat, and Barack Obama: Featuring appearances from The Illuminati, Osama Bin Laden, Larry the Downing Street cat, Queen Elizabeth II, the Cheshire cat and a host of characters. by Christopher Antony Meade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have no idea where to begin this review. I rarely laugh out loud, but Christopher Meade’s revealing of the truth as he sees it behind some of the most perplexing current conspiracy theories made me wipe my eyes. I’ve loved satire from the time I first read “A Modest Proposal” and realized Jonathan Swift shouldn’t be taken literally.
Meade presents the reader with a zombie, a cat that actually likes the zombie, a different cat that lives at 10 Downing Street, Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, Adolph Hitler, Osama Bin Laden and the Three Little Pigs in a mash up that absolutely works. Finally, we learn the truth behind Obama’s heritage. I think we do.
This slim volume packs more irony, humor and improbable relationships into fewer than 100 pages than any fiction writer I’ve read. At least I think he’s written fiction.
Read it. Enjoy it. Laugh out loud. Think. You won’t be disappointed.
