Charlene Reviews: Nitt Witt Hill by Sebastian Gibson

ISBN #: 978-0984777600
Page Count: 248
Copyright: 2011
Publisher: Sebastian Gibson Publishing


The top political parties have degenerated into the Nitt Witts, the Turkeys and the Clown Party and the country is becoming deranged. Unless Mark Twain (Mark, a political consultant and his dog, Twain) can determine what's making people so neurotic and make sense of the madness, riots may cause the country's collapse.

The Clowns are running for office with the slogan, "One more Clown in Congress probably won't make any difference." The Turkey candidates are running against the Clowns with their counter slogan, "Isn't it time we had some real Turkeys in office instead of those Clowns?" But it's the Nitt Witt Party who may have the most appeal to voters with their slogan, "Elect a Nitt Witt and see what some real Nitt Witts can do in Washington."

Meanwhile, believing a lightweight metal alloy in bras when placed in contact with the wearer's skin is causing electrostatic interference with aircraft navigation equipment and with people themselves, Homeland Security and the Senate take action to prohibit the wearing of bras on airplanes and their sale in America. Still, the situation fails to improve and the country is on the verge of losing its collective mind.

With the rhetoric of political parties at a level never seen before ("Turkeys are made for stuffing, Clowns are for Congress") and as protesters riot over the right to wear or go without bras and try to take control of the White House it's up to Mark and his dog Twain to determine the cause of the country's mental imbalance and find a way to save the country.

Charlene's Review:

Nitt Witt Hill is preceded by this quote from Mark Twain: "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot." I find that this pretty much sums up the next 234+ pages. If you're looking for a serious look into our nations politics, this isn't it.

A satirical novel, in which no party or political ambition is safe, Nitt Witt Hill is an absurd, often humorous look at our nation's leaders. In the search for what is making the American public neurotic, Mark and his dog, Twain, lunch with Sarah Palin, attend a Senate hearing on bras, fake their way into the President's campaign strategy meeting, uncover conspiracy, and strategize with the FBI. In the end, a solution is found for all the craziness, and politics will continue as usual.

Whether you root for the Nitt Witts, Turkeys or the Clowns, you will enjoy this somewhat warped, but sadly accurate portrayal of our government. Mr. Gibson tells it like it is, although he may have a slight obsession with breast support. =)
