When your best friend is just a tiny bit psychotic, you should never actually believe him when he says, "Trust me. This is gonna be awesome."
Of course, you probably wouldn't believe a voodoo doll could work either. Or that it could cause someone's leg to blow clean off with one quick prick. But I've seen it. It can happen.
And when there's suddenly a doll of YOU floating around out there - a doll that could be snatched by a Rottweiler and torn to shreds, or a gang of thugs ready to torch it, or any random family of cannibals (really, do you need the danger here spelled out for you?) - well, you know that's just gonna be a really bad day...
An informative Q&A with author Jeff Strand.
Q: Is A Bad Day For Voodoo as good as The Hunger Games?
A: Well, I wouldn't say that. I guess it's up to the reader to decide.
Q: Did you really just compare your book to The Hunger Games?
A: No! All I said was that it’s up to the reader to decide.
Q: But apparently you think that A Bad Day For Voodoo is worthy to be in the same sentence as The Hunger Games.
A: Um, no, I’m not the one who put them in the same sentence. You did that,
Q: But did you stop me? Did you say “Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, let’s stop this Q&A right here!”? You most certainly did not. You were just going to let it happen. That disgusts me, sir. Your book is not worthy to be mentioned in the same sentence. In fact, the word “voodoo” is not worthy to be in the same sentence as “hunger.”
A: I’m sorry.
Q: The Hunger Games is 100% pure awesomeness and I resent you saying that your book reaches those heights. The Hunger Games is kind of violent, though. If they could get rid of the violence, it would be even better. I should write my own version that doesn’t have any kids killing each other. That would be sweet. Is A Bad Day For Voodoo a wholesome tale that contains no violence?
Q: Are you lying?
Q: For shame.
A: The book isn’t...I mean, there’s some violence...but it’s funny violence.
Q: So you’re basically saying that your book represents everything that’s wrong in today’s society?
A: No, I wasn’t basically saying that. Look, you asked if it was as good as The Hunger Games, and I just said that readers can decide for themselves.
Q: Everybody knows it’s not, though. I mean, duh.
A: Have you even read it?
Q: I skimmed the back cover. Do you have anywhere to be for the next few hours? I could read it right now and tell you what I think.
A: Could I maybe go get some lunch or something and come back?
[A Few Hours Pass...]
Q: Well, shut my mouth. A Bad Day For Voodoo is way better than The Hunger Games. In fact, it makes The Hunger Games look like somebody just slobbered on some paper and called it a book! If I had a copy with me, I’d punch it!
A: Thank you.
Q: I should have said that I’d shoot it with an arrow. That would’ve been a better Hunger Games reference. Lots of arrows are shot in that book.
A: Oh well. Too late now.
Q: Yeah. Anyway, everybody should go read The Hunger Games, and then if they want to read something better, they should read A Bad Day For Voodoo. Don’t read A Bad Day For Voodoo first, because it will ruin The Hunger Games for you because you’ll spend the whole time thinking “This isn’t as good as A Bad Day For Voodoo.”
A: No, it’s okay. They can read it first. I’m cool with that.
Q: Okay, so everybody should read The Hunger Games and A Bad Day For Voodoo in whatever order works best for their own personal schedule. Buy them both today!
