This tale of four goldamn envirn meddlers is one of the least compelling stories I've ever read I put off picking up the book until just before bedtime and that one or two paragraphs I managed to read sure did wonders for lulling me into unconsciousness The parts I did stay awake for only served to piss me off The hypocrisy of these eco terrorists is laughable They motor up and down the very highways they rage against burning massive amounts of fossil fuels in the commission of their protests all the while blithely tossing trash out the windows Then there's the fact that the men are allowed to be old fat and hirsute The one woman is of course young and attractive with shaven calves Interesting that she packs a razor for all their wilderness exploits Probably a disposable which is then tossed from a car windowI don't know maybe this was a case of wrong book wrong time This is one of those books I kept saving to savor at a later date and perhaps I held out too long until the best buy read date expired The reason this gets three rather than two stars is that I have a feeling I might have liked it had I read it in high school or college Nowadays I root for Billy Mack instead of Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue After all Billy Joe did shoot a man while robbing his castle I probably should have read this one when I was reading Another Roadside Attraction Abbey's book reminds me of Tom Robbins only not funny

The Monkey Wrench Gang Monkey Wrench Gang #1Tened by industrial development On a rafting trip down the Colorado River Hayduke joins forces with feminist saboteur Bonnie Abbzug wilderness guide Seldom Seen Smith and billboard torcher Doc Sarvis MD and together they wander off to wage war on the big yellow machines on dam builders and road builders and strip miners As they do his characters voice Abbey's concerns about wilderness preservation Hell of a place to lose a cow Smi. pretty disappointed by this actually like the writing was good and I liked the style a lot and I feel like I should have liked this environmental vigilantes exciting chase scenes but honestly I couldn't get past the racism and sexism edward abbey is like the kind of anarchist white dudebro who would unironically say that fight club is their favorite movie I think I would have liked this a lot too if the characters weren't all terrible and racist the only girl character was shitty and boring and the summary on the back led me to believe that she's a feminist but the way he wrote her was patronizing and as if she were just a big child with no drive beyond what's interesting plus the main hero I guess is awful and claims to love his wilderness while a treating native people like shit and b literally throwing his trash beer cans all over the desert and even admitting that he doesn't think other people should drive their cars through his wilderness but thinks he's the only one who should so like yeah huge disappointment
