Book Review: Janitor of Planet Anilingus

Janitor of Planet AnilingusJanitor of Planet Anilingus by Andrew Wayne Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jack is the janitor on the entire Planet Anilingus, a planet dedicated to…well, you can look it up yourself. Anyway, Jack is employed by the Vatican, who runs the planet, as well as other planets dedicated to every fetish imaginable. However, at this time during Lent, the planet is deserted except for Jack. Or is it?

It turns out that he’s not alone. But who, or what, is the mysterious woman Nimue, and who is trying to kill her, and why? All these questions are answered (yes, they are ALL answered) in Janitor of Planet Anilingus by Andrew Wayne Adams.

Jack himself starts as a rather dull character, but it’s probably what makes him more identifiable. He’s just trying to do his job. He has his routine. He mostly wants to be left alone to his life and his work, but grudgingly accepts that he can’t necessarily do so. He’s sort of an everyman. On a planet dedicated to anilingus.

Again, the editing in this year’s class of the New Bizarro Authors Series has been excellent. They’re not falling into the pitfall of grammar, punctuation, or spelling mistakes that pull the reader off the page, and I’ve complained about before. It makes this book so much more enjoyable.

And it’s really, really good. Of this year’s NBAS books, this one has so far been my favorite. Despite the name, there’s not as much sex as one would think. It’s actually an exploration of religion, gods, dragons, devils, and the nature of life. With anilingus. Hey, it is a bizarro book after all. This book is actually really high-concept, which is strange. This is the second NBAS book this year that I’ve described as being deep. So either they’re getting better, or I’m getting more shallow. Only time will tell on that one.

As I’ve mentioned, Janitor of Planet Anilingus is part of the 2012-2013 class of the New Bizarro Authors Series, which means that this is the author’s first published novel. With quality and concepts like those in this book, Adams should have a promising career ahead of him. This book gets a high recommendation.

Janitor of Planet Anilingus by Andrew Wayne Adams earns 5 snaking tongues out of 5, and an attempt to see how many times I can mention anilingus in one review.
