Your mind’s your limit, when you shop at the Allmart store!
This incredible comedy satire is definitely the product of a whacky mind! The author’s style of writing immediately made me think of the late Douglas Adams, and his ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.’
Phil Granchi’s protagonist, Ted Kojwaclczsziziek, is literally taken on a rollercoaster ride through AllMart, the brainchild of genius entrepreneur McAlsteinetti. Ted’s job is to infiltrate AllMart with a team of special-forces operatives who fear the CEO has become unhinged, but what they discover inside transcends belief.
What an experience this book is, yes an experience, because a ‘read’ somehow doesn’t do it justice. Right from the first page we are thrown into a zany world, wacky, and at first, it seems unreal, science-fiction and fantasy. Indeed a lot of it is, however, for those who hang on for grim death, and stay the course, it is so much more. Because weaved into this incredible comedy satire, if we look carefully, there’s the history of the superstore, the hypermarket, and dare I say, those enormous corporations who seem at times to be taking over the world.
Oh yes, Allmart, like those mega giants we all know are out there, it started small, a humble store servicing the community, offering homes and work for the locals. It was popular, supported – but then somehow it just grew, and grew, and grew, until it took over the whole area. In time it became the world’s largest chain of discount stores.
The reader can see for themselves the amazing bargains, the sales gimmicks, clever marketing, those offers you just can’t resist, so much so that you forget about the credit card maxing out, you just get another one! Lost in the fantasy world of having what you want, when you want, everything is possible, doesn’t that sound magical? However, the possibilities don’t stop there, what happens when the world is not enough, well…
Join the author for the experience of a life time, meet people whose lifestyles may ring a bell, see for yourself the wonderful offers available in this unique book. If you don’t believe me why not take a look at the Allmartstores website, yes it’s there, put the name in your search engine, you’ll see what I mean.
To say that this book is cleverly written is an understatement, it is truly a work of art, a comedy satire, blended with science-fiction and fantasy, guaranteed to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. Highly recommended!
