All is not as it seems on the Planet Skid.But you have to read the book to find out.

Skid is an imaginative science fiction novel of considerable skill that pokes fun at all forms of political correctness, while also indicating there are dangerous signs of a disintegrating world that is not adequately taken care of. Readers will recognise these as parallels to life on earth. 

The use of humour makes the book work effectively - mainly through the reactions of the "offworlders", Bruc
e the local yokel from
(from New Zealand) and Sue (from the USA). Both Bruce and Sue react in stereotypical ways as caricatures of the cultures they come from - the skilful and amusing portrayal of their characteristics allows readers to laugh at their own attitudes. 


This is  a scifi novel but has elements of satire and is supposed to make you laugh and think but more importantly you are meant to enjoy.
