Blimpo: The Third Circle of Heck Book Review

Welcome to Blimpo, where the um, plump kids go. In the third book of The Third Circle of Heck series by Dale E. Basye, main man Milton Fauster has to get himself and his best bud Virgil out of Blimpo in time to rescue his sister, Marlo before they all meet an unappetizing end.


To Heck With It!

In the third book in the Heck series, Milton is back in Heck and determined to rescue his friend Virgil and his sister Marlo. He disguises himself to enter Blimpo, the third circle of Heck where the children who are guilty of gluttony are sent. In Blimpo, the kids are forced to run on giant hamster wheels called Dreadmills as a way of generating energy. They are fed Hambone Hank’s barbeque, a heavenly concoction, which is Milton’s first clue that something is very wrong. In Heck, nothing is ever heavenly without a price.


Meanwhile, Marlo is busy trying to learn the ropes as a Girl Friday the 13th in the Devil’s Infernship program. She overhears a conversation between her boss and one of the Vice Principals of Blimpo and realizes that another plot to take over Heck may be underway. And, up on the surface in the land of the living, Damian Ruffino has been brought back to life by the Knights of the Omniversalist Order Kinship (KOOKs) who plan to use him as their bridge to “utopia”. Damian has other plans though. He’ll lead them to Heck once he has amassed an army of Damian worshipers to follow him there and then he has plans for a takeover of his own.


The Bottom Line

There are some great creepy moments in this book: "Suddenly, a scream pealed from the mist shrouded herd of bewliderbeasts. In the blink of an eye, a swooping shape had attached itself to the creature charging toward Milton. The bewilderbeast screeched, the unmistakable shriek of something about to be killed. Nothing was as frightening Milton thought in the abrupt silence of the creature's scream, than some terrible creature terrified by something even more terrible."


It’s also a really funny, exciting and entertaining read that will keep you thinking. You’ll meet a few famous people in Blimpo, including Elvis and Richard [kwlink3836]Nixon[/kwlink].

Because a smart phone is exceedingly more efficient than a library at finding information, in just about every way. I don't understand this idea that we should slow our progress specifically to keep books or libraries, or anything else. Of course, I do not think we should get rid of existing libraries or books, but this idea that we need to 'slow down' is completely contrary to everything I feel about technology. We would not reserve ourselves to horse bound carriages when most people can drive a car.

But I think we should scale back a bit and enjoy the simpler things, like books and libraries.  I agree
