Ever get the feeling that your conflicting desires or beliefs or viewpoints are in such irreconcilable opposition that you're actually two distinct personalities housed in one corporeal form? I'd bet dollars to donuts that V.D. Burns is often in this state. I'm no fancified cityboy collegeboy psychologist but I'm pretty sure he is afflicted with The Disease Formerly Known As Multiple Personality Disorder or maybe—just maybe—isn't a person at all, but rather a pseudonym for a wily ghostwriting du ...more
Hahaahahahahahahah!! I love this book!

That's right. This bad boy is 5 stars!! But let me remind you that gr defines 5 stars as "it was amazing." And that's truly what this is: It is amazing... bad. Those 5 stars represent negative stars.

This deliberate romp into baaaad writing hits one of my tenderest buttons (twss). When a number of items or people is given, I automatically keep track as they go by or, in this case, are killed in various ways. This bastard author throws out a couple winner

Have you ever been lied to by a five-year old? Where the kid starts telling you a story that is obviously made up, but every time the kid starts getting bored with it, they add new ridiculous details that make it even more implausible? And they have no self-awareness that will help them realize you know they're pulling every idea straight out of their ass? You ever had that happen? That's what reading this book is like.

Except it's not written by a five-year old. No: this A.D.D.-influenced opus
This book is like if the best book in the world had a lust affair with the worst book in the world, and that affair resulted in the birth of two children, a brother and a sister. Then, those children had an incestuous affair with each other, which resulted in the birth of two children, a brother and a sister. Then, those incestuous children had an incestuous affair, which resulted in the birth of twins, a brother and a sister. Then those incestuous, incestuous twins had twincest with each other, ...more

Hey guys! Sorry I'm late....

I received the following notification from Microsoft Word while nearing the end of this book: "There are too many spelling and grammatical errors in 'Gods of the Jungle Planet.rtf' to continue displaying them. To check the spelling and grammar of this document, choose Spelling and Grammar from the tools menu." This made me laugh, but not nearly as much as practically every single line in this glorious piece of shit did.

Look, I've watched Cannibal! The Musical approxim

I don't think God will be very happy when He finds out you used his name in your title. Ph, and by the way, your initials V.D. also stand for Venereal Disease, which is really gross. You might want to think about just going by Vernon from now on.

The only good part of this book was the inter-species sex. I didn't like the gay guy. I thought he was stupid.
