The pandemic started as I was halfway through writing, The Super Nice Monster Squad, it was at its peak when I was writing Sheeple. As you can probably guess the inspiration for it came from the plethora of conspiracy theories that had swamped the internet at the time. I just remember looking at them all and thinking just how bizarre the world would be if they were all true. I am no stranger to conspiracy theories myself, but these had no point or reason behind them, it was everything is a lie, and the mainstream media are behind it all. It was a very interesting time for me as I was used to conspiracy theorists being left wing hippy’s, now all of a sudden conspiracy’s were a right wing thing and being indulged by your average conservative who traditionally would mock conspiracy theorists and call them deluded idiots. That whole shift in society fascinated me, I wanted to try and capture just a snapshot of the insanity in a story, so I wrote Sheeple, a reality where the conspiracy theorists are all right.

I roared with laughter reading this book. I always do with Simon's work.

I won't spoil it, but if you like satire with a few minor dark elements, and/or you're sick of conspiracy theories/theorists, read this novel. Just mind your laughing muscles, because they'll be on overdrive. We wouldn't want any injuries.

Five stars as always for this author!
