Donny and Ursula Save the World by Sharon Weil
Description from Goodreads
“THIS is the story of an orgasm. Or it could be said this is the story of an orgasm that never was, and then was, and once it was, it’s the story of all the ripples it set in motion. It’s the reiteration of the total fecundity slam dance, Big Bang Explosion that created the world.” Prologue – Donny and Ursula Save the World
Ursula was a woman who’d never had any pleasure “down there.” Donny was a guy who never passed up a chance. Hopelessly mismatched, they didn’t know the first thing about how to love, let alone how to become the unlikely heroes whose ignited attraction for one another would compel them to do things beyond their mere neurotic existences…
But when an agribusiness giant threatens to control the world’s food supply through their toxic GMO Freedom Seeds, Donny and Ursula join forces with outlaw guerilla gardeners, belly dancing feminists, gun-crazy survivalists, comic book heroes, Mushroom messengers, and even Mother Earth Herself, to rise up and save the day. And all because of some really good sex.
Donny and Ursula Save the World is the most importantly funny, sex-charged, wild romp, romantic-mishap adventure you’ll ever read, about what really makes the world go ’round.
I gave this book three out of five stars.
I gave this book three stars out of five. I really enjoyed reading this as it was a fun, easy book to read. It was filled with humour, and had me laughing at the many random situations that arose.
The characters were interesting and there were many amusing interactions between characters that didn’t at first appear to share any similarities or particular character traits. Yet, they seemed to work together. The book seemed to be written in quite a tongue-in-cheek fashion, which I liked a lot.
The story had numerous sub plots, such as the underhanded dealings of big business in collusion with the government, the survivalists and of course Ursula’s attempt to achieve orgasm. The battle of the fake superheroes was amusing, to say the least. These all worked together to support the overarching plot of the book.
As I said, this was a fun, easy read and I would recommend it to anyone that wants something light and humorous to while away an afternoon with. It was not a literary great or filled with complex ideas, but then neither was it intended to be.
