In a town full of homicidal inanimate objects, controlled by a mind marauding maniac with a penchant for pickling brains, young Joe Brown is about to learn the hard way that what's between his gunk ridden ears, could be the key to saving the world and time itself...or not.

Joe Brown thought he was living an ordinary teenage life, in an ordinary town, wearing some very ordin

Disclaimer: although this is a novella, I've decided to rate each chapter individually. Enjoy my shit post! [The chapter-by-chapter review is also implemented to maintain adequate sanity.]

This book reminds me of the Lyttle Lytton contest [where the people with the worst writing win] -over saturated in writing style but utterly hilarious and enjoyable. There are so many quotable passages, so I'm having a hard time lifting quotes.


The book forewarns us of bad choices, cliche mome

In the preface, Mr. Steele promises, “A lot of bad choices, cliché moments, terribly scripted villains and nonsensical violence.” He kept his promise. He failed to warn the reader of his excessive use of poop, farts, sharts, crusty underwear, oozing pustules, stinky socks, and two dozen more, at least, juvenile references to bodily functions and excrement.

I think Steele enjoyed making up ridiculous metaphors which would offend readers such as women, paraplegics, quadriplegics, armless people up

Time Travel + Brain Stealing is a sci-fi horror story about Joe Brown. Joe is a teenager and was under the impression that he was living an ordinary life; however, due to an incident, his life changes. Time travel is at play, and he has to deal with villains on the way.

The narration swapped between the first person to the third but in a way that did not deteriorate from the comical side of the story. The author plays with many literary words in order to express and describe the scenes, yet keep

A few weeks back, I received a request to read/review this book, this is what Steele entered under "Tell me about the book":
Time Travel + Brain stealing = Murderous Appliances and Good Times

Following the death of his parents, who died in a cliché’ and completely unimportant way, young Joe Brown is about to find out that living in a town conveniently named Doomsville, does have its draw backs [sic].

For reasons unknown, Joe now must face the

What in God's great Earth did I just read!? To say this book was terrible would be an understatement. I'm not sure what possessed me to read it in the first place much less in its entirety. Full of disgusting potty humor, disturbing details, and worst of all spelling and grammatical errors. However, I am led to believe that this is exactly the reaction wished for by the author. So if you want to read a terrible book... This is certainly it.

Richard Steele was born premature in Vietnam circa 1966 after his mother, a long forgotten United States test pilot, was shot down during the war. Little infant Richard fought his way through kilometers of Vietcong tunnels, dragging his unconscious mother by the umbilical cord to a nearby US army base. There, he dove back into his womb of solitude and re-birthed himself some two decades later.
