I would like to thank Manuel Tapia for an advanced copy of this interesting read. “Eat the Rich” by Renee Miller is apropos considering today’s political climate in the United States and around the world. It’s class warfare on a whole new level entirely. I found myself actually rooting for the aliens at some points throughout the reading. And the humor was off the charts tongue in cheek, and I found myself chuckling out-loud on more than one occasion. Don’t make a personal connection with what you eat kind of humor. There were quite a few lines that I had to just shake my head and I could actually imagine the character saying those lines. “I’m sure he’s used to that, being an alien overlord who invades planets and eats people.” Both entertaining and thought provoking, Renee will have you on an emotional roller coaster, picking sides and making choices you may not normally make in normal circumstances ( whatever normal is). Great characters, fast paced, edge of your seat fiction that will not disappoint. Things don’t always end the way you think they might, or should. This is my first read by Renee Miller, but most certainly will not be my last.
