Book Review — American Hippo

36303126

American Hippo presents an entertaining adventure of an alternative US where the lower Mississippi River has been blocked off in a plan to raise hippos for meat. As strange as this sounds, it almost really happened in the early 20th century. What evolves is a story of revenge, with some very colorful characters who travel on hippos. Its a western with a twist. There are the good guys, who aren’t necessarily all that good. The bad guy runs casinos on the river and feeds the rowdy and cheaters to the gators…or rather hippos. Slightly different kind of western that is thrilling and filled with colorful characters and fierce hippos.
