Goon Dust Love: Book Two: The Pig by Daniel Carter

Goon Dust Love Book Two The Pig continues the story of Micheal and Elaine who are discovered by this man and invites them over to an abandoned McDonald’s where he has other “Runaways” running hussles, fake subscriptions and charities and the like in return they get hash browns and catsup with coffee and an occasional beer and that’s it at 2 times a day. If they don’t bring anything in they just don’t eat.

To be honest the more I read, the more it hit me that this is an adaption of Oliver Twist, a good one in fact. If you don’t know Oliver Twist, really you can look it up on Wikipedia, but really it’s the same plot… with one exception.

The Yellow House, the next book in the series.

Where an extended family of college students live, where they have plenty of fresh food, a clean place to live and everyone is treated fairly.

Unlike what happens at the abandoned restaurant, when Elaine checked out The Yellow House and Michael lied to The Pig to save her as she violated one of his rules. Don’t talk to others. For a while it looked like Micheal was about to get roasted. Until he was suddenly freed, and they decided to go.

It maybe an adaption of “Oliver Twist”, but it’s a good one. Frankly I wished it was longer than the 60 pages or so of how this series averages.

The Verdict

I give a very solid 10 out of 10, and here is why. Great characters, interesting story and enough of a plot twist you are certain what is going to happen next.

The Pig with other volumes of Goon Dust Love is available from Rabbit Effect
