S.T. is a domesticated crow. He is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading insults with Seattle’s wild crows (those idiots) and enjoying the finest food humankind has to offer: Cheetos.

But when Big Jim’s eyeball falls out of his head, S.T. starts to feel like something isn’t right. His most tried-and-true remedies – from beak-delivered beer to the slobbering affection of the loyal, but dim-witted, dog Dennis – fail to cure his owner.

S.T. is left with no choice but to venture out into a frightening new world, where he discovers that the neighbours are devouring each other, and the local wildlife is abuzz with rumours of dangerous new predators roaming Seattle…

Humanity’s extinction has arrived, and the only one determined to save it is a foul-mouthed crow.

My Thoughts:

After wanting to read something a bit different, I decided to give this book a go. It is all about a domesticated crow who is a big fan of Cheetos and he goes on an adventure with his brother Dennis who is a dog. They get up to all kind of mischief. There are parts that are amusing. It is a slightly weird story which I am sure people will love. For me it just didn’t hold my attention enough.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
