The Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia

The Repossession Mambo is a science fiction novel by Eric Garcia that was released in 2009 .

The Story revolves around a former Repoman. What is a Repoman you ask ? I’m glad you asked . You see , in this future , virtually any body part can be replaced by something called an artiforg . These artiforgs have many health benefits but they do have a drawback or two . They are insanely expensive and if you fall behind on your payments , Repomen will come and collect those artiforgs back . Our main character is one of the best Repomen or rather he was , but now he is on the run from them . Throughout the story this man types up the story of his life where we learn about his time in the military , how he became a Repoman , his many marriages , his friendship with a fellow Repoman , his many hunts , and another runaway .

This has got to be one of the strangest science fiction novels of the 2000’s but it is a fun ride . The author has an odd sense of humor which is felt all through out the novel which I think is the primary reason to read it . Now this novel goes back and forth between the present and the past a lot … like it’s almost ridiculous . Normally I don’t care for that but the personality of the main character is just so interesting that I actually enjoyed it . If you’re looking for a macabre science fiction story with a sense of humor , check this out .
