The Brown Buffalo is back again
The Revolt of the Cockroach People - Oscar Zeta Acosta,Marco Acosta,Hunter S. Thompson

…and this time we are talking revolution!

 

The Buffalo – or Zeta as he now calls himself – continues on his journey to figure out, who he is and what he is destined to do when he discovers his inner Cockroach.
Cutting back on drugs (pot doesn’t count) at least temporarily, he somehow stumbles right into the middle of the Chicano civil rights movement and soon becomes the spokesman and lawyer for everyone else involved. Although he is absolutely overwhelmed as well as overextended and hates the law like no lawyer before of after him, he holds his head up high and viciously goes right for the establishment’s throat.

 

The best parts of the book are in fact the many scenes at court. You get to experience the Buffalo in all his glory and in full action as the incredible lawyer he was, trampling down judges and jury alike, which results in him, the attorney, getting thrown into jail on a regular basis. He must have been a pain in the arse indeed! A disrespectful lawyer by day and a Molotov cocktail throwing, pipe bomb preparing radical beast by night – no wonder, he had so many enemies…

The Revolt of the Cockroach People - Oscar Zeta Acosta,Marco Acosta,Hunter S. Thompson

If this man didn’t go down in law history books, I don’t know what we write them for.

 

No other lawyer has ever cross-examined a hundred judges. There is no precedent, nobody to show me how to do the job. So, as is my custom, I decide to go right for the throat of those dirty old men who sit over us in judgement. If they won’t give us back our lands, at least we’ll have a drop of their blood for our trouble.
I’m billed as the only revolutionary lawyer this side of the Florida Gulf. And it’s true: I’m the only one who actually hates the law. The rest are just jiving. I’d rather spit in a judge’s eye than stick a pig in the heart.

The Brown Buffalo is back – sobered up and acting as the proud lawyer of the cockroaches.

Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > The Midwife's Revolt
The Midwife's Revolt - Jodi Daynard

This book did a really good job of drawing me in. It uses actually figures from the history of America. In my far from expert opinion, the author does a good job of making the settings realistic. I felt an emotional connection with the story. I was interested in what would happen in situations and figuring out the mysteries.

Perfect: The Revolt - Scarlet D'Vore,Calee Allen

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

This is a good continuation of the Perfect series. Same interesting storyline and great descriptions as the first novel.

 

I liked the first book a bit better, because this one felt like kind of an in-between book. It sets up for a pretty epic third book, but I don't think the plot really reaches much of a climax in this book. It sets up all the pieces nicely, but leaves the third book to knock them all over.

 

Also, as with the first book, it consists of a lot of female vs. female action, including slut-shaming, bullying, and name-calling, which was a bit of a downside for me.

 

But I enjoyed the background on the Perfect and Fearian war and this book fills in a lot of blanks from the first book. So overall, it was still a good read.

 

And I really love the beautiful simplicity of the covers.
