    An absurdist ode to strip malls, fast food, crappy jobs, and the banality of everyday life, written with the same casual air that encapsulates it's central character and the thesis of the book itself.

    This is my first read from Lesko and I enjoyed the laid back style of the narrative most. There was also just enough weirdness to have me guessing about what was to come and maintaining my interest throughout. Eli is a relatable character that I enjoyed and the story flew by quickly. There were a few small grammatical things here and there, but these were not enough to be distracting. The Electric Lunatic was quite entertaining overall and I am interested in reading more from Lesko after finishi This is my first read from Lesko and I enjoyed the laid back style of the narrative most.

    This book was a lot of fun. It has a simple setup with no plot whatsoever, so saying too much will only spoil the experience. To give you an idea of what to expect though, I will say it's about a guy who likes to reward himself for making terrible decisions and lateral moves professionally, but not in a douche-y, "I hate this guy" way, more like a fun, "I like this guy" way. For example, he has enough money to spend a day at Cedar Point (even though it turns out to be a negative experience in th This book was a lot of fun.

To give you an idea of what to expect though, I will say it's about a guy who likes to reward himself for making terrible decisions and lateral moves professionally, but not in a douche-y, "I hate this guy" way, more like a fun, "I like this guy" way. For example, he has enough money to spend a day at Cedar Point (even though it turns out to be a negative experience in the end), but not enough to buy his own $5 Hot-N-Ready from Little Caesars (instead he steals food from dumpsters, while sometimes having to fight off weird, old dumpster people). Priorities, man. The guy is a little screwy. We do find, however, that his poor decisions may be directly influenced by the ten worms living inside his brain...or maybe from the many poisonings he experiences throughout the entire book (I didn't count, but it happens enough that he keeps a vile of antidote in his glove compartment so he doesn't die). So, yeah, maybe we should take those things into consideration before placing the blame of his shitty life primarily on him. While the book reads more like a glimpse into an oddball's life rather than a proper novel, the story still manages to reach a climax in an unlikely place: a bathroom stall inside The Bronze Palace. I won't say what happens there, but it's horrifying and hilarious all at the same time, and enough for the protagonist to appreciate his life back when he was working his old job. I recommend this book if you appreciate a good laugh, like flamingos, and/or have a weird sense of humor. I also recommend this for the bizarro crowd. It may not qualify as full on bizarro, but it's weird enough that the audience for that type of story will absolutely love this one.
