Foop! - Chris Genoa Well, I expected a slightly bizarre, humorous read, and I will have to say that this delivered. Personally I would have rated the first half higher and the second half lower, but I am content averaging at four stars.

We start with the premise of a time travel agency that takes tour groups back in time to see interesting events, and eventually resolve to a strange multi-dimensional exploration of sorts. Of course, thinking this represents a hard sci-fi story is big mistake. We have blind, smoking monkeys that are experts in hog-tying, a strange senior citizen bingo hall, and a main character that mainly has conversations that consist of incessant bickering.

An enjoyable read that brought many smiles and a few giggles.
