If anything, Play on Words shows the reader what you can do if you ever lose your job. Unfortunately, it also gives our economic system a good kick in the behind. Sorry. By the end of the story everyone can literally use the dollar bill itself for toilet paper. I’m not making this up. It comes complete with solar panels, electrical cars, a nice big farm, you get the picture. One of the characters admits he doesn’t need money anymore because the entire “green” movement provides a way out of the system. There lies the purpose for this book – the green and sustainable realm and what it can do for us. Play on Words tells two different stories at the same time that are neatly wrapped together at the end. The first story describes how the main character “quits” capitalism and moves into a sustainable community, and the other explains the outrageous history of the English language including why it was so easy to pass a spelling test eight hundred years ago. (There were only twenty-one different ways to spell the word ‘people’ in Middle English.) In addition, the story offers some fresh ideas, for example, like making Texas an independent nation. The author feels it might be time to let Texas go, considering all the political gridlock. He’s not from Texas, but rather lives on the “Left coast” and was born in New York. The author apologizes up front. He doesn’t take capitalism seriously, and he finds it easy to make fun of considering all the problems we have with it. If you’re sick and tired of being dependent on a monthly paycheck, Play on Words is your ticket to freedom!
