The Duck and Cover series
by Benjamin Wallace
The opening of the first book of the series sets the humorous tone, and the series does not let up. It’s kind of Mad Max meets Monty Python—lots of post-apocalyptic fighting for survival, but with great banter and understatement. Our hero and heroine keep level heads and a sense of humor as they deal with bounty hunters, mutated plants, super-smart bears, renaissance-faire-based governments, crazed cannibals, biker gangs, and two very stupid and funny bad guys right out of a Hiaasen novel. There is rich satire on the human condition. I enjoyed all three books, but there’s clearly a fourth coming (it can’t end there!), and I’ll add that to the report when it arrives.
