Zoey Is Too Drunk for This Dystopia takes place in the futuristic city of Tabula Ra$a in Utah. Imagine if Las Vegas was a smart city but exceeded all of the ludicrous things that make it Sin City, I think that would be an accurate depiction of Tabula Ra$a.
At the time of the book, there is an upcoming annual music festival that always ends in a riot, an insane mayoral election and a televised crime with the promise of more crimes coming soon. The main character, Zoey, and her employees, AKA The Suits, are trying to keep all of these events under control.
Zoey Ashe is a young heiress to a mostly criminal empire. She’s relatively new to fame, fortune and crime. She has only recently found out who her father was. Now she is dealing with the family business. Zoey is doing her best to steer the company away from being so shady.
She tends to drink a lot. It’s the coping mechanism that she’s going with for now. Althought, she would say that the bad habits are not helping her with coping. Zoey is described as being plump. I wonder if she is really just an average size. Give the girl a break with focusing on her size. In this way, I can relate to Zoey. It’s not easy being so well-fed.
The sort of boyfriend/prankster/stunt performer, Aviv, was my favorite character besides Zoey. He genuinely seems to care for Zoey rather than her money.
The theme of the book seems to be “Where you find demand, you find people willing to fill that demand.” People will do some crazy stuff for money and power.
If you like humorous dystopian/science fiction books with interesting characters and crazy plot lines then you will love Zoey Is Too Drunk For This Dystopia.
If you are prone to joining cults, seeking world domination, or a criminal mastermind, then you might need to come back to this book later.
