Bob Halibut used to live your average life: he had a steady job at Porkburger. He had a decent apartment. And it was boring as all get-out. But then he inherited a grand fortune from his grandmother. After meeting a posh, cybernetic llama butler, he learns of his grandmother’s secret former life and embarks on a journey to the pyramids to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization. What he discovers will test his courage, as well as his swordsmanship skills. “Bob and the Cyber-Llama” is an exciting, laugh-out-loud, all-beef 12-pack of adventure fiction hot dogs. It’s a fantastic read for kids, adults, teens, super-intelligent chihuahuas, flying robots, and otherworldly alien deities alike.

This is one of the funniest books I have read in the last few years. I would dare to say I have not read something as funny since my elementary school days, when we were all reading Captain Underpants like a bunch of maniacs. For those familiar with it, this book is right there alongside those series. So, as soon as I picked up on that, I read the book through the eyes of a youngster, and enjoyed every single part of it.

Let us get to the first and the most obvious thing – humor. Yes, it is there. It is not one of those books that announce it, but fail to deliver it. This one goes hard right from the beginning. It is not just jokes or word plays, it is the story as a whole that is humorous. Just the Llama that you can see on the cover, is a goldmine of humor, let alone everything else. The story unfolds in a quick pace and you just keep jumping from one impossible thing to the other, but you just immerse yourself into the story so much that you just do not care. It is simply one of those stories that you pick up and do not put down until the last page.

The author managed to achieve what nowadays less and less books can. He managed to combine the humor with elements of adventure, suspense and mystery, without cutting one or the other out. And to achieve something like that in just 60 pages is extraordinary. Also, do not fear, the combination of these different elements does not ruin the flow of the story. What do I mean by this? Even at its peak, when the suspense and mystery are at the highest point, there is still humor present. And it does not ruin it for you. It brings a smile to your face, but your mind is still immersed and you cannot wait to see what happens next.

I cannot say much else without spoiling the story, as it is quite a short read. I can just repeat what I said at the beginning. This book would be a hit with the youngsters at elementary schools, and the author should look into that.

As far as the rating is concerned, the youngster in me enjoyed it, so I have no problem with giving it a…

Book recommendation: 10/10

    I think the cost of Kindle and real are interchanged ?
