Summary

Set on a large ranch in rural upstate New York, it’s early days for the eccentric group of people who call themselves “The Zeta Family” - quite possibly the next big cult phenomenon. 

Katie (Amy Goodmurphy), our central protagonist, is an aspiring reporter who has decided to infiltrate the compound, and her future success as a journalist depends entirely on her ability to win the confidence of Zeta Doug (Kevin Nealon), the likable spiritual leader of the group. 

He’s like a cross between Hunter S. Thompson and George R. R. Martin, with a little too much sci-fi in his head and acid in his blood stream. Like all good cult leaders, Doug is elusive and mysterious, and Katie quickly begins to wonder if this cult is truly just a gnarly collection of weirdos hanging out in the woods, or is there something else going on here?

Sheer Entertainment

Being a bit shallow I was initially attracted by the cover + I'm fascinated by anything to do with cults
(maybe because I was in one for a while but couldn't take it too seriously so was kicked out).

I'm also a fan of great comedy writing and acting. I was not disappointed.

The Zeta Family ticked all my boxes especially the laugh out loud characters, all of them almost as shallow as I am.

just pure enjoyment from start to finish.

Thanks Audible

Laugh non stop

I really didn't know what to expect but it brought me joy listening to the characters.
I bursted out laughing at some points in the book... Probably people thought something was wrong with me.
I loved it I wish it was longer.

the characters were interesting. the plot a little predictable. but it was a well crafted story.

I really enjoyed it.

absolutely brilliant, funny and heartwarming

I pretty much went through all the episodes in one day...snickering while working at my desk in the office. And then I was so touched and emotional that I was getting all teary, my colleagues probably thought I was unhinged!

The Over Use Of "What everrrrr"

Didn't make it too far into the first chapter before the ignorant, over 30 yr old females continuous over use of "oh girl you deserve betterrrrr...." and "What everrrrr" got on my last nerve.
