    One thought on “Donny and Ursula Save the World”

    1. Fueled by orgasms and several types of neuroses, Donny and Ursula Save the World expects nothing from you, only that you unbutton your pants you don t have to stop there, really and sit back for the ride It educates you on several subjects without being too heavy, and tells you that relentless and unbridled optimism is possible After who knows how many heady books, this apocalyptic romantic comedy was a breath of fresh air The moment I understood what Ursula was all about, fairy dust swirled aro [...]

    2. Sharon Weil s Donny and Ursula Save the World is a little, uh, different In some ways, it reminds me of the works from two of my favorite authors, Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey There is a little light hearted adventure There is over the top satire There is corporate greed and government blindness corruption There is romance, and non graphic sex Oh yeah, and moving into another sphere altogether, there are psychic mushrooms and one rather P.O.ed planet.Basically, Donny is a guy who cannot commit, b [...]

    3. As a rule, I try to avoid fiction that looks like it might have an agenda These tend to be preachy, and based largely on internet wisdom, of the I read it on the internet, so it must be true variety.In Donny and Ursula Save the World , however, author Sharon Weil weaves a topical issue into a plot, literally and figuratively, as if she had invented it solely for that purpose The novel is first and foremost fun and entertaining, and oh, by the way there s a message here.Weil has a light touch, li [...]

    4. Book source NetGalleyDonny and Ursula, an unlikely couple if there ever was one And yet somehow they make it work Along with some friends they take on a big agribusiness in order to save the world.Ok, this is one of the weirdest books I ve ever read That s not monster porn Ursula is really weird in a hippy kind of way and Donny is your average Joe schmoe They have strange friends who end up helping them on their mission to save the world from AgriNu poking Monsato in it s great big ass It s told [...]

    5. Quirky, funny, scary, ridiculous, heartwarming There are not many books out there which include chapters written from Mother Nature s point of view or M Nature, as she s calling herself now, to be taken seriously.I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Greasy palmed Donny meets Ursula at a party, and wants to bang her, but not get emotionally involved Belly dancer Ursula is propagating a huge colony of vile smelling Kombucha mushrooms and has never had [...]

    6. From my book review blog at kickinbooks.wordpress 2013Through NetGalley, I received a copy of this eGalley from Passing 4 Normal Press, whom I thank for their generosity Although it was provided to me at no cost, I am under no obligation to give a positive review.Ursula I ve always loved the name Ursula Ursula Andress Dr No , anyone Ursula K Le Guin outstanding author OK, there was the evil sea witch in The Little Mermaid But still, I like the name Apparently, in this story so did Donny, as he p [...]

    7. I should have loved this book Clever and very decent writing tick Anti government agenda tick Green, organic, buy local, save seeds agenda tick Quirky and interesting characters tick Decent plot tick Humor tick.So why didn t I I found this really hard to get through despite it, on the surface, being exactly my sort of read The main reason I found it so difficult was that those quirky and interesting characters were quirky and interesting and bloody irritating characters I should have felt great [...]

    8. I really enjoyed reading this as it was a fun, easy book to read It was filled with humour, and had me laughing at the many random situations that arose.The characters were interesting and there were many amusing interactions between characters that didn t at first appear to share any similarities or particular character traits Yet, they seemed to work together The book seemed to be written in quite a tongue in cheek fashion, which I liked a lot.The story had numerous sub plots, such as the unde [...]

    9. I loved this book I smiled all the way through it In some ways it reminded me of The Origin of Love from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and in some ways it reminded me of Good Omens In all the rest of the ways it reminded me of nothing I ve ever seen but something I ve always wanted THIS is the story of an orgasm Or it could be said this is the story of an orgasm that never was, and then was, and once it was, it s the story of all the ripples it set in motion It s the reiteration of the total fecund [...]

    10. I have decided to stop reading this book for now at least It s not a bad book, as can be seen from its 4.82 5 Star rating It just wasn t a book for me.The writing style was unique and I actually really liked it I just never connected with the characters like I wanted to, there was no drive to finish, to know what happened When I was 50% done and there was no glimpse of this amazing orgasm that has been the focus of the whole book, I just couldn t do it any Seriously, If you like Adult characters [...]

    11. I was the first one to buy this brilliantly crafted book on Weil knows how to construct plot and character, while mixing in so many well researched ideas and facts in the most playful, laugh out loud, entertaining style This is a writer who thinks, is interested in the health of the earth, and shares it in a most imaginative way Her creativity is astonishing and her ideas provocative I recommend this book to anyone who wants to share in Weil s love of all that breathes and shares this planet.

    12. Sharon Weil understands that the erotic can be the heart s intelligence and speaking humor to power is a literary tradition, a most effective medicine for desperate times This book will delight you and it is also a provocative remedy for passivity and despair Who knows, but after reading this book, we will all be equally determined, and as indomitable as Donny and Ursula, when it comes to truly saving the world.

    13. It was kind of fun, and touched on some important issues, but was just, I don t know, silly Have you ever had a glass of chocolate milk where someone really skimped on the Hershey s syrup Like that.

    14. I loved this fantastic tale that so creatively combined orgasms, GMO s, and the future of the planet I also think it would make a fantastic film the images are vivid and potent, and that could be Ms Weil s screen writing cred percolating through the story.

    15. I really and truly liked the overall message in this book, but I just couldn t connect with the characters Quirky is not for me, I just find quirky characters annoying.But I ll readily admit this is a good book, it just wasn t for me

    16. I received a free copy of this book from the GoodReads First Reads giveaways in exchange for an honest review Fun, quirky and intentionally a little over the top, a fun read.

    17. I would like to thank both NetGalley and Passing 4 Normal Press for granting me the chance to read this eARC in exchange for an honest review Though I received the e book for free that has in no way influenced this review I rated this book at 2.5 stars, but rounded up to 3 for sheer ingenuity The most importantly funny book about love, sex and GMO seeds you ll ever read Can one woman s orgasm save the world That s where it all started at least for Donny and Ursula, mismatched lovers who become u [...]

    18. OMG LOVE this book.It s funny, quirky, thoughtful interesting.A beautiful very delightful read I cant wait for from this author.Recommended Received as a Gr giveaway.

    19. What a weird ass book It s all environmental gushy stuff and hare brained Earth saving plans I don t even know what I read.The synopsis on and elsewhere is misleading Yeah, it s about our boy Donny, a stereotypically Italian beef cake with creepily sweaty palms, and the neurotic and frigid belly dancer flower child Ursula, who has freaky pony tails all over her head to hide her bald patch Attractive I didn t feel the tenderness I tend to feel for the misguided, the geeky, the awkward, the cluele [...]

    20. This definitely is not your average book Donny hooks up with Ursula and this is sort of their story It also includes a huge sub plot about how big business, after getting its foot into the door of big business, proceeds to throw its influence around Then there are Donny and Ursula s friends and routine preoccupations Donny is a typical slob, interested in downing fast food meals not cleaning up after himself, watching all sorts of stuff on TV, etc Ursula is a lot of the opposite She is into bell [...]

    21. I d like to start by giving you the synopsis as posted on Can one woman s orgasm save the world That s where it all started at least for Donny and Ursula, mismatched lovers who become unlikely heroes in DONNY AND URSULA SAVE THE WORLD The quest for the Big O and its seismic awakening ignites them to daring deeds beyond their mere imaginations and neurotic existences When an agribusiness giant threatens to control all the seeds of the world in order to own life itself, Donny and Ursula join force [...]

    22. A quirky little novel that manages to touch on several large issues the danger of commercializing agriculture, the importance of orgasms, Mother Earth s good housekeeping, conspiracy theories And in the midst of all this is a strange but lovely love story.Donny is a regular Joe, a slob who enjoys smoking, video games and hoarding comic books He meets Ursula at a party and decides to follow his head the wrong one and pursue her But wooing the prudish, New Age travel service operator turns out to [...]

    23. Ok What do I say about this book It exceeded my expectations yet was not close to what I expected Is that a conundrum or impossibility The very perplexing nature of my reaction is well suited to this story The writing style is not my favorite but suitable for a modern fiction piece where we have thrown grammar out the window There are clear plot lines and definite character development Some of the content I find wholly unsuitable to modest company It is a book I will have a hard time recommendin [...]

    24. Via onlectus 2013 11 This story was a fun ride The book is funny, but don t expect funny in the sense of stand up comedy This is an upscale kind of funny Donny doesn t get Ursula and her weird pets, but he sticks around because he wants to have sex with her, and he knows that eventually, she will have sex with him it s just a matter of time Wow That is self confidence Ursula doesn t want to have sex with Donny because she can t orgasm So, what s the point, right Just doing it for the guy s sake [...]

    25. Here s a book about a serious topic that doesn t take itself too seriously Sharon Weil managed to write about GMOs, the end of the world, and make it all OK.This wasn t a typical romantic comedy, but here s what I say about that Good Donny and Ursula Save the world doesn t preach about the dangers of genetically modified seeds, but the reality of it is still there Instead, it s wrapped in a quirky woman who deals with life in her own way even if that is growing mushrooms in her home Ursula can t [...]

    26. I loved Donnie and Ursula The book is really fun and off beat, but at the same time is about several really serious topics Love, big business GMO s, and the environment Weil has created some great characters and the way she weaves biological facts into the story is fantastic The book definitely strikes some emotional chords about our current realities It is a quick read and I never wanted to put it down Sharon Weil is part behavioralist, part excellent science teacher and part humorist author Do [...]

    27. I m having a little but of a hard time with my feelings on this book The book was well written and, I thought, incredibly creative I loved the descriptions of the Eros and connections between certain characters I wasn t crazy about the end, but it s just not really my type of ending It s a book that some parts will stay with me for awhile, while other aspects of it will fade from my memory I didn t love or hate any of the characters Some if the characters made me angry, but just didn t elicit th [...]

    28. Choose your ism survival ism, terrorism, environmentalism, fatalism, cataclysm, botulism or something like it , escapism Employing a series of hilariously apt double entendres, this book explains how money is the root of all evil and sex makes the world go around.I can pretty much guarantee you won t read another book this year that so brilliantly ties together GMO seeds and belly dancing.Full review at fernweh428.wordpress 2013 I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.

    29. Received the book for free through First Reads.This was funny and somewhat engrossing I liked all the other intermingling characters and stories, but wasn t so enchanted with Donny and Ursula Wish there was Sheerah and Thor I guess there were moments when it was great and I liked the fantastical elements A book with a message, it was fun and not preachy.

    30. Weil s debut has an uproarious premise Weil s narrative, by turns winsome and hilarious, is populated with well drawn comic characters and filled with snappy dialogue even a cleverly anthropomorphized Mother Earth gets in a few good zingers The book s action climax is also delightfully surreal A fun, raucous eco novel Kirkus Review
