1492: The Real Story of Christopher Columbus and the Search for the New World - Reader Review
5.0 out of 5 stars A True Old World Style Satire, June 15, 2004 By AP "Closet Atheist" (Santa Fe) - Amazon.com
In his first major publication K.A. Pirnat brings forth a highly stimulating historical satire about Christopher Columbus and his voyage to the new world. 1492 show stylistic influences of satirical cinema such as that of Brooks and Wilder but at the same time Pirnat give us his own individual stylistic graces. This novel takes all the "common knowledge" facts on Columbus' voyage, puts it all into a 21st century perspective in a way that only an abstract intellectual such as Pirnat can do, and proves that anything can be made ridiculous. Pirnat take societies value from the 15th century to the present and turns them upside down. This book reads very well and is continuously stimulating without a single slow page. Rumor has it that in addition to Pirnat's follow up novel about the barbarians, a scripted version of this is on its way towards the big screen. If you want a book that is a laugh a minunte then this isn't the book for you, this book is a laugh straight through, every second of it. Highly recomended!!!
