Reviews

Praise for ZOEY PUNCHES THE FUTURE IN THE DICK:

"[Zoey Punches the Future] is at its best when [Pargin] explores the nature of wealth and power. In the character of Zoey, [Pargin] pushes against the fairy-tale clich� where the downtrodden (through supernatural means or otherwise) are rewarded a life of carefree prosperity." --Locus Magazine

"The future is simultaneously familiar and utterly ridiculous in Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick, the second Zoey Ashe thriller from [Jason Pargin]...a funhouse mirror of modern society viewed through a superhero comic or a James Bond movie...rich with commentary on celebrity culture, social media and toxic masculinity, readers will be laughing too hard for it to ever feel preachy." --Shelf Awareness (starred review) "[Pargin] once again achieves the perfect balance between sardonic humor and satirical digs at the digital age..." --Library Journal (starred review) "[Pargin] sneaks a nuanced examination of the surrealist nature of the digital age into the nonstop action, whipping technological, philosophical, and ethical questions into a wild romp that satirizes everything from the men's rights movement to gaming culture to the cult of celebrity. This is a brilliant modern parable disguised as pop fiction." --Publishers Weekly

"[Pargin's] trademark imagination and humor remain but it's his grounded sense of humanity that elevates this work." --Booklist Praise for FUTURISTIC VIOLENCE AND FANCY SUITS:

"With verve and velocity, the story moves...one cinematic set piece after another, strung together with twisty fun and wit." --The New York Times Book Review "Like Jonathan Swift for the internet age, [Pargin's] novel offers an engrossing journey and razor-sharp wit inside of an uncanny prediction of an American future. His newest is only more proof that he will be remembered as one of today's great satirists." --Nerdist "All right, grab some popcorn and strap in. We're in for another profane and funny roller-coaster ride from [Pargin]." --Kirkus Reviews "[Pargin] unabashedly trolls everyone and lampoons everything in this beautifully outrageous science fiction adventure...Biting humor and blatant digs at modern society overlay a subtly brilliant and thoughtful plot focused on one young woman's growth and survival against all odds." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "A sofa clutching read from beginning to end, and a great look at the constantly growing world of social networking." --Starbust, 9 out of 10 stars
