Publisher's Summary

Bob's day is off to a bad start. He is abducted by alien blobs and is put into a zoo, while the rest of humanity is being taken to be slaughtered and turned into burgers. 

He has had better Thursdays. 

Bob's handler Fred befriends Bob, and the two of them try to change the legal status of humans from food to intelligent life so that the slaughter ship can be stopped and everyone returned to Earth. It is not easy as there are a lot of not-very-intelligent life forms on that ship.

Another hysterical Simon Carr book!

Simon Carr is at it again with yet another hysterical story. In this one, Bob is abducted by some aliens who are giant blobs. The problem? The blobs all seem to think that Bob, as a giant ape, is food. Not only that, but the planet Earth is home to only one intelligent species - jellyfish. Not one to let this pass, Bob begins a campaign to change the status of humans from food to intelligent species with the help of one Blob who is sensitive to the issue, Fred.

With each book by Simon Carr that I read/listen to, I think that there can't be anything else as outrageous as that book, and every single time, the new book proves that wrong. I have just decided that all of Simon Carr's books will be hysterical and that I need to either listen to or read all of them. This book is just another example of that.

I did have the opportunity to listen to the audioboook, which was narrated by Ashleigh Binder. As the first audiobook of hers I have listened to, I thought she did a really good job.

A hilarious story from Simon Carr!

Another hilarious story from Simon Carr set in the Apocolypse Blocker world. Some fun twists on alien abductions and a planetary experiment gone wrong...or right...depending on which side you are rooting for...or on. As always, a hilarious story and I'd expect nothing less from Simon Carr. Audio Verson: Ashleigh Binder does a great job narrating a hilarious Simon Carr story.

Hilarious Alien Invasion Story

I found this book very amusing. It is my most favorite of all of Simon Carr's stories that I've heard so far. I realize that the humor was zany, crazy, and sometimes dark, but there were times I laughed out loud. The two protagonists, Bob and the blob will live long in my memory. I have gotten to the point where I leave space in my day as I know once I start a Simon Carr's story that I won't want to do anything else until the audiobook is over and that was true for this story. Ashleigh Binder's narration was great and enhanced the story. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.

Blob-tastic!

Bob never dreamed he’d ever be abducted by aliens, nor did he think he’d find out that Earth is a farming planet for the said alien race of blobs.

Snatched from the comfort of his home Bob befriends one of his captors and the pair of them set off on a quest to convince the universe that Humans are the dominant species on Earth and not the Jellyfish as everyone assumes

Like all of Simon Carr’s novels, this one is full of funny dialog and clever observations which combined with the quirky characters is a darn good read / listen.

If you haven’t read any of Simon’s stuff then this is not a bad place to start as it kicks off the Apocalypse Blockers series which takes an ‘Avenger’s Assemble’ style by introducing the main characters in their own stand-alone novels before combining them into their own super team.

What a ride!!!!

I was given a copy of this for an honest review. This is absurd, stupid and completely mental and I loved every bit of it. It’s as absurd as arguing with a pot of crab paste about where you’ve parked the car. You really feel for Bob and Fred and really root for them to win. I’d love a follow up book about their elevator business, Bob and Blob’s glass elevator lol
