5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious silliness for grownup children
By Marilyn Armstrong on June 23, 2013
Blue Diamond Delivery, Anne Johnson, publication date June 25, 2013

I didn't realize until I was quite a few pages into the book that this was a sequel to a previous book. Blue Diamond Delivery is a sequel to Green Light Delivery. It offers another look into the worlds of the more-than-a-little strange citizens in the Raralt Planetary Circle. In particular, it's about Webrid, Stravin and Zatell -- three friends and three separate species, two of whom are scientists -- one with feathers, another with many arms and/or legs. The third -- our hero -- is a big furry dude. A carter.

There's a supporting cast of weirdos, all of whom who spend lots of time drinking themselves into a stupor while contemplating sex with oddly configured other species.

The basic plot? Webrid -- a Yeril -- is a carter. He delivers stuff throughout the planetary system. Or used to, before (in the previous book I didn't read) he saved the world. That was when he got very rich and didn't have to cart anymore.

Webrid doesn't live like a rich guy. He lives like a drunken slob because that's what he is. And that's exactly what he wants to be. He just happens to be a multi-millionaire drunken slob.

When his world is rocked by massive earthquakes that destroy his home and threaten to wipe out his city, planet and the entire Raralt Circle of planets, he isn't surprised the government calls on him to deliver a gigantic blue diamond to the machine that holds the planets in orbit. This is no ordinary delivery. The fate of every living creature on all the planets in the Circle depends on it and Webrid. Or, more to the point, Webrid and his pals.

Webrid owns the cart and has the brawn and determination to get the job done. He pals Stravin and Zatell have the brains to figure out how. Zatell also has a rocket ship, an important component. And Stravin has a few other critical items they're going to need to pull off this "saving the world" thing.

Webrid is not quite a hero, even a reluctant one. He's a good carter. If he has a delivery to make, he will make it or die trying, though he is not averse to some hot babes and a sea of booze too. He figures the booze and hot babes are the point. Yerils are big and strong, but the species is firmly committed to cowardice and self-interest. Odd how Webrid keeps saving the day, even though he doesn't know what or why he's doing what he's doing. Usually.

It took me a while to realize how funny this book is. Talk about over-thinking a story, I was trying to figure out what these characters might actually look like until I realized it didn't matter. My job was to read and enjoy it. After that, I enjoyed it very much.

I'm glad I stuck with the book. It got funnier and funnier as it went along until I found myself laughing out loud at the delicious silliness of the characters and story.

I highly recommend the book if you (a) have a taste for bizarre science fiction and (b) don't mind species with incomprehensible body designs. If you just roll with it, you'll enjoy clever dialogue, weird inventions and outlandish technology. Blue Diamond Delivery could be a great animated feature film. It's pure fun and reminds me of some of the books I read to my son when he was young, but aimed at adults. Childish adults. Like me.

Enjoy. You can get it in paperback and I'm guessing on Kindle too since the review copy is Kindle format. You can order the paperback from Amazon.com and probably elsewhere too.
