If you like improbable stories that stretch your imagination, if you believe that two men from parallel universes deserve a happy ending just like anyone else, and if you're looking for an entertaining read that might just make you laugh, cross all available fingers and toes for the various characters involved in this action/adventure, and bite your fingernails because you have no idea what else to do, then you will probably like this novel as much as I do. It's extraordinary in a whole new way!

Wow, Rob Rosen has done it once again. And God Belched is his customary laugh out loud romantic comedy adventure that this time delves into Science Fiction. I'm not sure how he is able to tackle so many themes or genres from Contemporary to Superheroes to Alien Planets but every time I pick up one of his titles I know I'm going to be in for a fun ride.

I give up really trying to tell you all what's going to happen here, other than saying it's an exhilarating, crazy, did they really just stop and have sex in the middle of the action, why yes they did, hilarious science fiction story. There's some poignancy, because Rosen also roles that way, but mostly statements on governments, boredom, genetics, and the future of the human race.
The brothers’ adventure is cleverly plotted and nicely paced, maintaining internal logic in a futuristic world, and I can tell you that’s not at all easy to do with such material. In spite of Randy’s internal preoccupation with sex, there’s an air of innocence and sincerity to the story, which makes the romantic storylines sweet and unassailable. Rosen knows how to tap into the reader’s happily-ever-after imagination, and here a campy, sci fi setting becomes a compelling tableau for what is ultimately a pretty wholesome story of boy-meets-boy.
