Edgar Award nominee Victor Gischler “specializes in morbid humor, dark sarcasm, and comic noir, complete with violence and mayhem” (Library Journal). Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse picks up 10 years after the end of the world. Former insurance salesman Mortimer Tate leaves his secluded cabin and discovers a desolate landscape complete with cowboys, bandits, and cannibals, where the only traces of civilization are found at Joey Armageddon’s Sassy-a-Go-Go club.

“Compulsively readable.” (Booklist)
I was a bit hesitant to buy this book, but now I am glad I did. I normally don't like "old west" so words like "cowboys" and "bandits" put me off. However, I took a chance on this one, and found it a suspenseful read. I think my favorite character is the female train captain, Tyler. My favorite scene is where Bill the cowboy rescues Mortimer from the Beast. It is the first time I have ever read a post-apocalypse book where they try to rebuild civilization starting from a go-go club. It is well worth a credit.

Part post-apocalyptic survival novel, part dark comedy and part western, ‘Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse” is a fun and exciting ride through a world ravened by war, natural disasters and economic meltdowns. The characters are quirky, unique and likable and overall this was just a fun book. I highly recommend it for any who likes action and adventure and is looking for a slight change of pace.
Mr. Sowers does a great job with all the characters and really adds to the enjoyment of the book.
Only if they were looking for something light and different to read.
The surprising turn of events and finding there is life after the apocalypse. I did like the references to places and locations in the Southeast US.
I am not sure. Most of the characters sounded like they were on Green Acres or Hee Haw.
It was funny in many places.
It definitely wasn't a masterpiece but it was a nice light, enjoyable read between serious books.
Funny and action packed.
The characters make the story.
Mortimer getting Raped. Ha Ha!!!!!
Why is there not more of this style from Victor G.? Narrator was great. He really made each character unforgettable.
Dedicated Audible reader - love the average apocalyptic dystopian horror story!
I got this book after listening to a sample of the narration. The narration was great and I was immediately hooked into the story of a dystonia world where the main character literally leaves his cave and learns how to cope and eventually survive. The best part of the book is the originality. It is adventurous and comical in so many ways. It is a must read for lovers of this genre.
The Deputy, also by Gischler. Also I recommend.
The accents. Perfect.
I can't say I was moved, not that kind of book, but the most fun a book has giving me in a long time.
People dealing with - realistically - post war apocalypse. I have no illusions that "man is inherently good" (would like to think so ... ) and the situations presented prove that out.
Haven't - this was my first.
I really liked the story / plot twist when Mortimer figures out who "Joey" is. Quite a build up, not a let down, well delivered. Again, don't take this too seriously. Joey's economy is a bit optimistic.
Not at all. I put it down, bounced around between books.
The cover has little to do with the story.
