REVIEW:

When it comes to indie authors, I have a few all time favorites and John Bruni happens to be one of them. The plot, is that it is the year 2200. Richard Coppergate and the wealthiest citizens of the city, have gathered for their annual game: kidnap seven people the world wouldn’t miss–bums, prostitutes and the mentally ill–and turn them loose in the city with a mission to hunt and kill each other. The prize? One billion dollars. This year the stakes are personal. Two of the contestants are sons of the rich fucks. One of the contestants is a ringer. And one of the rich fucks likes hunting the contestants. Coppergate and his game have come to the attention of a revolutionary who lives off the grid and an outlaw journalist intent on bringing the whole thing crashing down. John Bruni, the author of TALES OF QUESTIONABLE TASTE, brings you POOR BASTARDS AND RICH FUCKS, the ultimate tale of the class struggle. Who will win? Who will die? Who are YOU going to place your bets on?

Visceral, gritty and hits the mark when it comes to a depiction of our actual society. As a reader I was pulled in by the flowing quality of the writing and the descriptions made everything come alive. This is simply the best of indie writing: well-edited, well-presented in a mockingly deceptive cover, this man knows the craft and employs it to carry out whatever emotion he wants to put you through. This was a five star read for me. This is a book you just can’t miss.
