Episode 50 - The Eclipse of Darkness: Unveiling the Unseen World by Robert Arden Szanyi

99 minutes

We received an anonymous recommendation to read this book. It is easily one of the most concentrated forms of delirium ever put to text.

This book is supposedly written as a screenplay since the author wants this to be made into a film. This screenplay/book suffers intensely from never being spell-checked or edited for content, style, or even basic English grammar and syntax. Additionally, the descriptions of rather basic things are just incredibly bizarre (e.g. a factory called Society Office Supply somehow produces electric chairs, hypodermic needles, AND nuclear weapons).

A short sample of what this book contains includes: eternal life batteries; scene shifts so abrupt that they induce motion sickness; a man riding an ostrich; universe bisecting infinity lasers; the worst Saturday morning superhero team ever; and of course - a random breast popping out of a blouse.

Overall it's simply unreadable and should be taken off the market until it is re-written and edited by a professional.
