My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was pretty interesting to me. I knew it was supposed to be a humorous/satirical read, but it is a different type of humor than what I was expecting. It was a fast-paced story, quickly jumping from one point to the next, which I found made it a little bit difficult to get into. The writing was very matter-of-fact, which makes for a good almost documentary-style story, but not as great for connecting to characters. If you like this type of humor, this will make a good book for you, but it wasn’t necessarily my favorite. This doesn’t mean it’s a bad book by any means, just not really up my alley.

This book was so different from anything that I have ever picked up to read but I enjoyed it so much.
This story was full of adventure and the characters were brought to life so well. I purposely took my time to read this book just so that it would last longer. I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.

Campy. Definition of campy is according to Merriam-Webster is “absurdly exaggerated, artificial, or affected in a usually humorous way.” Planet HY Man, so unlike our own everyday life yet so spot on when you think of the book in terms of our banal emotions and humor. Bravo for Kerrie Noor to be able to make us think about our lives but in a humorous and fun way that seems so ironic and farfetched from our lives as we live them now. The Rise of Manifesto the Great by Kerrie Noor is a great book which I can best describe as campy and full of fun. It really reminded me of the early science fiction films from the 50’s and 60’s. I could really picture Manifesto and the rest of the crew laying around bed-diving and smoking hemp. A battle of the sexes at its funniest! It is so great! What makes it such a great read is that it is original, funny, has a bit of mystery in the book but it is just FUN! If you are looking for a book to help wash away the day’s troubles and fall completely into Manifesto’s world and Planet HY Man, you must read this book

This book was soo much fun to read. The author created this amazing and original new world and provided us with the most unique characters to inhabit it. Kerrie Noor weaves together this quirky ,funny, sarcastic, and witty Sci-Fi Comedy where we explore a true battle of men vs. women. We start of being introduced to the world of Planet Hy Man and watch as men and women come to inhabit this desolate planet. Men and women arrive together to this planet celibate and as the story unfolds we watch as the men solely attempt to impregnate women, and the women fight to establish their equality. Its a very humorous take on men vs women and what it takes for them together to establish this new world despite the sexism and comedic mishaps. You won’t be disappointed with this book.

This is a book for those over 18 due to its adult nature and sometimes graphic content.

Manifesto The Great is the grandson of the first leaders of the Planer Hy Man, leaders of a race of space faring men and women who were travelling through space on a ship to find a new hospitable planet where they could forge a new way of living, but living on spaceships can be cramped, especially of you are on them for a long time, so these particular wayfarers decided that sex was off the table and abstinence was the new normal, as well as segregation of the sexes so taht there was no temptation to fornicate. After a while this became the norm and nobody questioned it, until they arrived on Planet Hy Man where there was plenty of fresh air, space to live and expand and as it turns out a copious amount of hemp, this new found freedom leant itself to the reintegration of the sexes, fresher food and plenty of sex and partying in celebration and this is how they lived until some order had to be established, however, the views on how to do this were poles apart according to whether it was the females or the males who were speaking, in the end the males shouted the loudest and declared that they would do the work and the women were to procreate and look after the children and nothing mroe than that.

This way of living carried on for years, technology was invented, created and used to their advantage, including four-legged creatures and statues, the hemp was farmed and life was good, until the planet started to become more polluted and the women had had enough when their rights and duties were reduced even more and they felt like it was unfair that they were only regarded as baby making machines and walking wombs. Things were marginally better under the second leader, but when he passed away, the successor was even worse, a typical mans man who only thought of sex and participating in a sport he created of pulling spaceships, the women lost more rights and the men weren’t happy either, that is until Manifesto The Great came along and hoped to find a balance which sutied all the people of Planet Hy Man before they either tore each other or the planet apart. He tried to listen to women’s views as well as the mens, albeit the past leaders had female advisors, the men were always seeking to either overthrow them or cast them out as spies, believing that they were weak and brainless, the women however, wanted to prove them wrong once and for all.

Will Manifesto The Great be able to live up to the legacy which his forefathers left behind, will be able to make the wise decisions which will please both the men and the women, or will he drown in their demands for a better life and more equality? This is a comedic sci-fi adventure with plenty of crazy action, argumentative women and equally argumentative men who will drag you into their lives and keep you firmly ensconced there throughout the book.

The Rise Of Manifesto The Great (Planet Hy Man) by Kerrie Noor is very fast-paced and very funny! I appreciate a good satire and this held my attention to the very end. This book is the first of three prequels to the Planet Hy Man book, which I had never heard of before picking this up. Thus far, this planet has remained pure. The latest group to arrive on Planet Hy Man are ready for real experiences. When Manifesto the Great takes power, he has to find his stride and learn to control the women. The comedy and spoof that follows is a tickle to the funny bone. As I said, I love a good satire, especially when there are some kick-ass characters involved. Even if this isn’t the typical type of book for you to dive into, I recommend that you do, anyway. I recommend this book for some good chuckles, and I’ve been inspired to travel again to Planet Hy Man and to visit more works by Kerrie Noor.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very enjoyable read. It is a sci-fi read however it is full of comedy which really made it a light hearted read.

In this story a spaceship of men and women arrive on a planet that is uninhabited. While living on the spaceship there was an order that everyone has to stay celibate due to the lack of space on the ship.

Once they arrived a leader was found and life started to take shape. The men were given jobs and women were sent to the nurturing shed  to make and care for the babies.

This way of life was ok for a time however not everyone was happy with this way of life and when new people started to arrive and people become segregated and only had access to certain things depending on their ranking this started to create friction between everyone.

They need a strong leader to unite them all but that doesn’t seem to be available.
This books is full of laughs and strong women which really bring the story to life it an age old war between men and women and women fighting for rights

Even in space men can’t find their way. The ladies always have to show them on the map. Gran’s directions to the rescue for Arthur of the North. The subtle humor of this book will have you chuckling as you read. The characters are well-written with quirky personalities. A quick read to fill out your day.
