Larry Doyle, the author of I Love You, Beth Cooper, returns with Go, Mutants!, a hilariously outrageous novel of teenage angst and restlessness, populated with heroes and villains straight out of the classic sci-fi and teen movies of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Soon to be a major motion picture from Universal Studios, Larry Doyle’s Go, Mutants! is the funniest, most original bit of genre-bending since Pride, Prejudice and  Zombies. This story of alien high school rebels without a cause is sure to bring out the unabashed B-movie fan in everyone.

    San Francisco Chronicle

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor | 4/10/2011

    " This book was quite a witty play on the horror movies of the fifties and sixties as a base for an alternate universe "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 10/29/2010

    " A little slow to get off the ground, it was a boring backdrop that setup some great one-liners until about halfway through. After that my love of B movies kicked in and I quickly devoured the rest of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 9/20/2010

    " Having fun reading this mashup of 50s SciFi B-movies/Rebel Without a Cause and The Simpsons. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 9/5/2010

    " I was expecting wit of the caliber of Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and did not get it. Underwhelming. And kind of sophomoric. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 9/3/2010

    " clever book that takes a bit too long to get to the conclusion "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 8/18/2010

    " Fun premise, and that somehow doesn't gets old. Kind of like how the premise of "Buffy the Vampire the Slayer" was high school is hell. This book's premise is that being unpopular in high school is like being an alien or a mutant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 8/12/2010

    " Super duper fun!

    It's Rebel Without a Cause with Extraterrestrials. "
