An Interesting Book
4 out of 5 stars
I’m a major purveyor of audiobooks and I haven’t seen too many books that skip print/ebook altogether. Splat! and the rest of the Quirky audiobook series seemed to have done that and I think I understand why. These books seem to work best in audio form and wouldn’t be as good on a page compared to in your ear.
Splat! was one of those books that I went into thinking “that’s a crazy description, let’s see, the book can’t be that balls to the wall bizarre”. I thought wrong and shouldn’t have doubted Park’s ability to write a story that was both interesting and entertaining.
I was cracking up as I read this and kept finding myself thinking “what on earth can she come up with next?” I was surprised page after page as Park threw different satirical punches to keep me on my toes late into the 10th round. I’m not sure the age range that this is written for but parts of it felt like it was for a young adult (minus all of the cursing and adult themes).
It was a book that needed to be read by multiple actors or I don’t think it would have worked. The full cast performance stands out since you know who is talking when and there doesn’t need to be all of the descriptors (since it’s written in first person).
Splat, while not for everyone was one of those books that I wasn’t sure what to expect and in the end, I’m glad I went into it with an open mind.

Skitters the Cat seems to have it all, but when his twitchy teen handlers get tangled up with a polygamist cult in Utah, the fur begins to fly. For Brandon Spinkle, the son of the lead singer for a band called the Rectal Surgeons, dating a polygamist girl is hardly a pleasure cruise through the love canal. Especially after Brandon's mother becomes a contestant on a reality TV show called Celebrity Cougars.
Narrated by a full cast of kooky characters, this outrageous comedy is highlighted with snarky commentary from Skitters the Cat. prowl through Quirky Polygamist Country in Splat! A Quirky Cat Audio Book. It's the cat's meow!
