Description

In a world plunged into chaos, where the remnants of society swirl in darkness, sweet revolt is set to unfold. The Halls, a family thrust into a dystopian reality, join the ranks of a local militia group driven by a singular mission: to dismantle the source of all corruption and greed- the oppressive candy empire that holds dominion over the shattered world.

Amidst the ruins and the absurdity a brutally hilarious battle wages on. With wit as sharp as shattered peppermint and resolve as unyielding as tempered chocolate, our unlikely heroes navigate the murky terrain of this post-apocalyptic world, facing off against an adversary that thrives on chaos, greed, and chocolate sweetened with the blood of his enemies.

Doomsday Daytrip: Candy Shopping at the End of the World is a novella of satire and candy that takes political correctness and shoots it point blank, stopping it in its tracks. There is no room for trigger warnings or snowflakes here. If you ever wanted to join a local militia group and take down the head of a corrupt candy empire, then you need to read this book!

Wow! That was a wild, hilarious ride. The Hall family is living in an increasingly lawless society when the dad decides to take his family in a fitted out RV on a mission to kill a rich candy manufacturer. They are allied with a militant group, including Uncle Jack, and the kids have to work their own guns during the attack.
These groups really exist and it was wild watching this play out.
Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this

As an Australian reader, I interpret this as satire in where Howard represents both the entire conception of the US and the orange orangutan.
From a distance, I have to admit that this narrative reflects how most other nations view the southern states.
Having said all of that, I thoroughly enjoyed the chaos and the diverse perspectives on how America ought to improve.
I appreciate the belly laughs and the brilliant razzle-dazzle glimpse into the impending Armageddon that you provided.
An independent review thanks to NetGalley / Swann + Bedlam and of course, Rob Ramirez
