A wonderfully amusing romp, this novel takes place in the Northern California town of Big Beaver, which has become a haven for Bigfoot, alien sightings, and the Phantom Bigfoot Bather.
MY 5-STAR REVIEW OF NOBODY LIKES A BIGFOOT LIKE A BIGFOOT BABE by Simon Okill
Thank God there are crazy guys like Simon Okill writing crazy funny books like Nobody Loves A Bigfoot Like A Bigfoot Babe. I’m not going to get into the deep psychological underpinnings of this saga (because even if they exist, who cares?). I’d rather focus on Okill’s delightfully wicked imagination and the sheer fun of living in his world where Bigfoot creatures are a given (maybe) and their behavior makes you want to seriously party down with these guys (and babes).
The action takes place in a small northwestern town that tourists flock to on the chance of seeing a Bigfoot (especially camera-happy Japanese tourists). It seems that Bigfeet are breaking into people’s homes and using their bathroom facilities, clogging up drains and leaving behind the most ungodly stench – and a half-eaten donut. It is up to Sheriff Lou (female) and her team of Keystone Kops to catch those responsible.
Because a local youth has apparently been abducted – supposedly by a Bigfoot – the FBI is called in. The head agent, Willis, is Lou’s old flame that she hasn’t seen in years and who left her at the alter – a wee bit of broiling resentment and tension there. He’s accompanied by his sexy assistant, Merlot (no kidding). And as outrageous as all this sounds, it’s just the beginning in Okill’s wild and wacky tale.
So, are the Bigfeet real, or is a prankster just dressing up in a Bigfoot costume? Nobody Loves A Bigfoot Like A Bigfoot Babe is an hilarious French farce set in the North Woods filled with zany and clueless denizens – human and otherwise (maybe). For me, Okill’s book wouldn’t hold up. That’s because I had to keep putting it down while I laughed out loud.
In these troubled, high-pressure times we live in, Simon Okill’s book is the perfect relief valve. Thank you, Simon. Highly recommended.
I live with my wife, Shirlee Anne in a pretty coastal town in South Wales, UK. After retiring from work, I discovered new skills as a writer to help with my depression. My writing became more serious as certain A-list actors expressed interest in my scripts and my debut novel Nobody Loves a Bigfoot Like a Bigfoot Babe was accepted by Christopher Matthews Publishing.
