I could review The Milkman based strictly on its story, which is funny, irreverent, fast-paced, and original as hell (a milkman with a katana battles sentient alien farts with the help of an intrepid young reporter and a group of genius bikers who moonlight as rocket scientists... yeah, really, it's that off the wall), but I'm here to talk about how this is the sort of ebook that I think everybody should buy now, because it gives you a taste of what I think we all can come to expect ebooks to do ...more

Simply awesome.

There's a great mix of stuff here that would make any reader happy. Fun and quirky characters who display talents they are not usually associated with in our daily mundane lives, a rebellious alien and lots of action. There's also a reference to a certain fruit from the region I come from and while I'm not a fan of the fruit, I thought it was nice to see it mentioned by an author half way across the world.

Just like the other reviewer had written, the e-book in itself was entertain

This Is a fast-paced alien invasion story, filled with acton and plenty of chuckles. The alien species in this case is gaseous, and needs environment-specific human gastrointestinal tracts to inhabit. With a plot like that, you might expect this to appeal mostly to guys (like the Three Stooges, or the Pet Detective movies); but Don't let it put you off, ladies! I found this book to be thoroughly entertaining.

I would love the main characters (especially the bikers) to be featured in future novels

This is a fun book. Its was well written and fun. I'm not a big fan of the cover, but the book is really good. I enjoyed this book enough to buy a copy for my mother.
