Operation Oversex: A Sci-Fi Action Satire Comedy by Anthony C. Robinson is a laugh-out-loud take on sci-fi action inspired by Sexmission, a 1984 Polish film with a cult following. If you're in the mood for a funny book or are a fan of satire and parody, treat yourself to this clever offering. Reminiscent of Naked Gun, Spaceballs, and similar comedies, this one is pure fun. You'll find some dark, sardonic humor along with the adventure, and a lot of tongue-in-cheek moments. Fans of MAD Magazine or Austin Powers will get the joke. The title can be a little misleading as there is some romance, but not a lot of overt sex. You'll find plenty of courage, excitement, and attitude. The story begins with lead characters Chad O'Connor and Tyrone Jackson being put in suspended animation for three years--guinea pigs basically--scheduled to wake up in the year 2030, but they wind up waking up in 2083. The world they wake up to is post-nuclear, and they are the last two males on Earth, thanks to a deadly virus that claimed the male population. Women run all of society now. In the beginning, it seems like heaven to the pair, but it eventually turns into an existence from hell, and a fight to survive.
This book has wit and surprises, and Robinson wisely starts with describing the two main characters, Chad and Tyrone, explaining how they were selected for the suspended animation project--one is an expert in physiology, the other is in top physical shape--both bringing his own strength to the process. You might expect a funny book to pay more attention to the comedy, but Robinson's attention to detailed descriptions and character sketches shows he is concerned about the overall quality and impact of the book. You'll be surprisingly invested in the story itself, not just waiting for punchlines or comical situations--although you'll find that too, of course. Though this kind of humor isn't for everyone, it's hilarious if you like quirky, offbeat humor, even if you aren't familiar with the source material, Sexmission. Operation Oversex by Anthony C. Robinson is a book any fan of sharp wit, a fun play on sci-fi, and edgy humor will enjoy.
