Check it out, a novel that makes one question many things in our society today and uses the vehicle of comedy and the bizarre to get us there. Laugh while we think, I enjoy that. Yes, it is time to release the monkeys. Marvellous Hairy is a sincere novel
that is totally different than anything I have read in a while. It is a
seriously disjointed narrative wrapped around a wonderful array of colorful
characters that takes the reader on a thought provoking ride through corporate
America, greed, and a host of other things. Here is the synopsis from the back
cover, but trust me, the description just barely scratches the surface on this
novel:


“Release your inner Monkey! So hair is sprouting in unspeakable places and you can no longer carry a tune, but if you’re a surrealistic artiste with an addition to Freudian mythology and guilt-free sex,
turning into a monkey has its upsides. Nick Motbot may be evolving as a
novelist, but his friends aren’t too sure about his DNA- at least not since
Gargantuan Enterprises started experimenting with it. And once they figure out
what’s happening to him, they decide to set things right. Marvellous Hairy is a
fabulist satire about a group of friends sticking it to the man the only way
they know how, with equal parts grain alcohol and applied Chaos theory.”


I think you can see that this is one seriously demented and out there plotline. Best thing about it is if you put aside a few things, this novel made me laugh, chuckle and smile. The narrative was a bit choppy, the
story was a mix of many different types of novels, including sci-fi, action,
thriller, mystery, and a medical story, but it all was mashed together in a way
that was coherent and fun. It is what it is and that is a good character driven
comedy piece with a bunch of other stuff mixed in. I don’t have anything that
comes to mind to compare it to, nor would I want to. Mark Rayner has created a
very unique novel with a very special flavor and vibe to it. Pick this up and
when you need a good laugh, give Marvellous Hairy a read and let the laughs and
smiles come on out. Here is a link to the book & some more info from Mark:
