I tried, but I really couldn t get into this book I didn t find it comedic or creative, I thought the environmentalism stuff was really one sided, the book was very predictable and I didn t like the characters at all.

Jerry Landis started to to count on his fingers Hepatitis Billiary obstruction Hepatoma Cirrhosis Gilbert s disease Metastatic cancer Blunt force trauma Penetrating trauma Parasitic infection, and on and on Hell, there must be fifty ways to leave your liver Ba dum dum.And from a tear jerking scene, to show that Fitzhugh didn t write this just for yucks As they held one another against the sorrow a shaft of sunlight reached through the blinds and slowly began working its way up the wall above the bed like a golden spider Last note Fitzhugh puts to good effect a technique for making a villain seemthreatening, namely, give the bad guy a weird sound effect Think Darth Vader, or Bane from the most recent Batman movie Here, the villain is Jerry Landis, who has a left ventrical assist device L VAD , which makes a whir pffft noise Whir pffft Whir pffft Whir pffft.If you like this book, try out Pest Control, Fitzhugh s first novel which might be even funnier We have a sickness of the heart that only gold can cure Hernando Cortez This is a comic novel about Big Ag, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, Big Money, and Big Baboons It s a book about mild mannered but inept conservationists, sadistic eco terrorists, sociopathic billionaires, rude drivers, vile vivisectionists, and Really Big Baboons.I started reading Bill Fitzhugh s books about 10 years ago, but I have run out them now a We have a

conservationists, sadistic eco terrorists, sociopathic billionaires, rude drivers, vile vivisectionists, and Really Big Baboons.I started reading Bill Fitzhugh s books about 10 years ago, but I have run out them now and am forced to start over again When I read Organ Grinders the first time, my main take away was Wow, that was a funny book But now, 10 years later, the novel seems awfully prescient I m not a tree hugger I have allergies But the American government now seemsconcerned about the right of mega billionaires to obtain piles of money to roll around in like Scrooge McDuck than it is in protecting the rights of the rest of us to life, liberty, and pursuit of drinking water that doesn t melt our brains Yes, I know, I should have saved up enough money in my youth so that I could have rented a congressman or two of my own, but its too late now, and I am bitter That being said, Fitzhugh expertly skewers all sides in this novel So whether you are pro air or pro laissez faire, you should be able to find plenty to laugh at here, even if you are a sociopathic billionaire although, in that case, your guffaws will probably sound something like Wa ha ha ha This is a book I have read now two or three times Pure comedy with intelligence, a thriller of sorts, twists and turns, megalomania and poignant sorrow, laugh out loud moments and the mental imagery is enough to curl any vegan tree hugging bookaholic I LOVE this novel My second time romp through the pages of this tome had me just as enthralled as the first time experience It appeases the intellect s need for information and cognitive coherence, as much as it does the mystery behind the bizarre This is a book I have read now two or three times Pure comedy with intelligence, a thriller of sorts, twists and

this tome had me just as enthralled as the first time experience It appeases the intellect s need for information and cognitive coherence, as much as it does the mystery behind the bizarre murders the landfill manager buried in his own soiled dump, complete with dirty diaper in his mouth and just how the whole sit com can resolve itself vivisection, cross species implants, environmental concerns, greed, revenge, the quest for immortal life, and so manyhuman conditions and issues are addressed through Bill s lighthearted yet twisted view on the worldI can t forget Arty, the guy who severs his limbs for the insurance and sells his body organs for huge profit, reduced to just a torso being carted around in a backpack by his biker bud and I will never shake the scrotal imagery evoked by the description of Mr Landis testicles when he gets the third one implanted courtesy of Arty Read this novel it s funny, thought provoking, and twisted Highly entertaining escapism Man has lost the capacity to foresee and to forestall He will end by destroying the Earth Albert Schweitzer This book s main character was so much like me, it was amazing He didn t seem to see the same world that others did He saw a place desperately in need of help and which seemed to be getting worse by the minute And no one appeared the least bit concerned about the state of thingsthe simple physical state

especially into destroying the planet for their gain are tortured, dismembered or other satisfying ways of being hurt and or terminated, and done so in particularly fitting manners The only thing holding me back from giving this 5stars was the strange attitude towards vegans vegetarians The Fitzhugh seems to think that they are deeply undernourished and weak Obviously not a vegan vegetarian himself, he is a strange sort of ecology friendly writer I don t recall who recommended this one, I think some friend from Bizarro Central Sorry, friend This book is well researched and traverses fertile, fertile ground for some kind of story about human weirdness But the characters are two dimensional and severely clich d, the language is mostly flat occasionally inspired, sure, but just as often hackneyed and the brief efforts to comment on the problems of environmentalism are sabotaged by the wacky screenplay feeling of the rest of it T I don t recall who recommended this one, I think

wacky screenplay feeling of the rest of it This guy, I kept thinking, has been in LA too long I kept getting pulled in, then annoyed, then pulled in, then annoyed but at the end I was just annoyed More annoying than all the rest was the author s need to keep slipping Paul Simon references in everywhere, starting with the male lead s name Paul Symon and continuing on with lyric snippets from all the top ten hits Yes, we ve all heard them so what I just don t see what the author is communicating there besides fanboyness Maybe he s saying look what a better writer Paul Simon is than I Maybe someone told him that references made literature deep I have no idea what he was thinking it s exactly the sort of thing his editor should have made him take out Very entertaining, although I don t consider it hilarious , as some critics do.It provides very real numbers and information based on actual studies to support the idea that the root cause of all problems today pollution, hunger, disease, etc is the overpopulation.I wish everyone would read it, but those who need it most are those who procreate, but those don t have time to read because they have progenies to feed. Organ Grinders is a light Carl Hiassenesque tale It takes some time for the story to come together with lots of characters and it moves a little slowly in the first half of the book The second half of the book moves faster and hasabsurd humorous situations This is not as good as Fitzhugh s Pest Control but still an entertaining read. (FREE PDF) ⚡ The Organ Grinders ã Bill Fitzhugh strikes again Following his widely acclaimed debut novel, Pest Control The London Times called it one of the funniest, most off beat thrillers in years , Fitzhugh turns his satirical eye to the merging of medical science and big business with hilarious and outrageous resultsPaul Symon is an environmentalist who s out to make the world a better place, but he faces too much disjointed information, public apathy, and self serving talk Not to mention greedy despoiler Jerry Landis, a venture capitalist dying of a rare disease that accelerates the aging processLandis cares only about making money and finding a way to arrest his medical condition That brings him and his fortune to the wild frontier of biotechnology, where his people are illegally experimenting with cross species organ transplantation in California while breeding genetically altered primates at a secret site in the piney woods of south central MississippiThere s also an eco terrorist on the loose, bent on teaching hard lessons to people who think the Earth and its creatures are theirs to destroy These forces, together with fifty thousand extra large chacma baboons, collide in an explosion of laughter and wonder that Bill Fitzhugh s growing league of admirers is coming to recognize as his very own I really liked this story The characters were good and some very silly Arty and the story was interesting It was a good balance of humour and truth about companies only caring about profit and not taking care of the planet.
