MEME by Jack Cusick

41Qhv2W-0DL._SX317_BO1,204,203,200_The Universe is broken: produce is now used as currency, the Vehicle Code now reads like post-apocalyptic fiction, and pop culture has taken a serious turn for the weird – the laws of man are all fouled up, and the laws of nature aren’t far behind. It’s almost too much to cope with for an ordinary guy like Daniel.

Fortunately, he’s got Meme – she’s an investigator with a secret, off-the-books organization that deals with strange Universal phenomena, and she’s kidnapped Daniel from his hospital bed to figure it all out. She thinks Daniel has more to do with the broken Universe than he’s letting on…

And she’s usually right about these things.

“Amazing first effort from a new author”

Five Star Review on Amazon By C. Ballreich

I read this book by this guy I’ve never met and certainly don’t see at work every day and who never came to my band’s shows or bought our CDs or anything so this is a totally unbiased review. I could say a lot of good things about this book, but the first thing I noticed is it’s cheap. $2.99. There’s not even tax or shipping. What the hell? The second thing about this book I noticed is it’s really funny. Not just in a “jokes strung together way”, but in an adventurous “OMG he spent three pages setting up that pun” kind of way. Everyone compares the author to Douglas Adams which I don’t think is really fair. First of all Douglas Adams is dead. That gives him an advantage right there. Everyone knows when authors throw down, the dead guy almost always wins. But the bigger deal is this book stays on course better than the HHGTG books. A better comparison would be the Dirk Gently books, but even that won’t give you a real feel for Meme. It sort of shares a genre with Douglas Adams, but this no “send in the clones” thing. This is a book you’ll be sad to finish. It’s really clever and funny. Even if you don’t like funny books, you should read this because Donald Trump would hate it. If you like it a lot and decide to write a fan letter to the author, you might mention how underpaid computer techs are.
