Thoughts on Zoe Quinn’s Cash Grab Book

Thoughts on Zoe Quinn’s Cash Grab Book

One of my biggest regrets this fall is not having the chance to review Zoe Quinn’s new book, Cock Overdrive. Wait, that doesn’t sound right. I mean Cash Moneyride. Eh, I’m not sure that’s it either. Anyhow, you get the picture. Zoe’s long-awaited tome is out and I’m missing all the fun. Not that I would actually pay for it, mind you. Believe it or not, someone has already sent me an electronic copy so I can savor the text when I get done with my all expenses paid vacation.

It’s not that I have a shortage of reading material either. I’ve been focusing mainly on the classics. Books like The Twelve Caesars, Wuthering Heights, various Shakespeare plays, etc. But I have a feeling Zoe’s book is destined to be one of these unintentional comedy triumphs that contain page after page of gut-busting hilarity. I’m interested in whether or not anyone reading this post has checked out the book yet. If so, please chime in down below. Your comments will eventually reach me here in my fortress of ill feelings and terrible food.

I plan on reading it when I get home, but my agenda will be pretty full, so I see it getting lost in the shuffle. Maybe Nora can give me some highlighted sections by then. I think she’s planning to eventually do a review herself, so be sure to check that out if and/or when it comes.

Ah, I almost forgot! If you have any alternate book titles for Ms. Quinn, please leave those down below.

    What Happened – by some thoroughly unlikeable cunt.

  • Grust

    We miss you Ralph.

    I’ve heard that Hollywood has been interested in a movie deal with Zoe Queef, I’m guessing this is the book.

    • Maintenance Renegade

      If I recall it was Amy Pascal of Feigbusters infamy herself who was trying to push that project but it died when the last shred of her career as a producer did and Burgz publisher dropped her around the same time so I’m guess this is self published then?

      • Grust

        Darn I was hoping Hollywood could make another massive flop.

        • Toastrider

          Don’t worry, I’m sure one will be along shortly.

          • Grust

            Yeah I saw how badly mother is doing. Warms my heart.

  • Mr0303

    We don’t even need to read the book to know what’s in it. Victimhood posturing, lies, more lies and some SJW feminist rhetoric sprinkled here and there.

    • Grust

      And probably self praise for her “game”, Depression Quest, or as I like to call it, “THE WORST FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT I EVER PLAYED.”

  • Mr0303

    Not particularly funny or creative alternative title,but “History Override” seems rather fitting.

  • At this point there are two versions of Zoe Quinn in circulation, both of whom are perfectly ghastly, albeit in different ways.

    There is the flesh and blood original, whose sole talent lies in choreographed histrionics, and in the orchestration of vindictive hate mobs who operate behind the pretence of victimhood.

    Then there is the idealised version of Quinn, which has been pieced together by the fourth and fifth estates, and exists to provide credibility for a narrative that has been pushed for several years in media and political circles. Arguably this composite is the more influential of the pair. For these organisations, it is a necessary fiction that will exist long after Zoe is forgotten.

    It’s interesting watching these two versions of Quinn collide with one another in the real world. Large publishers and Hollywood film producers approach and then hastily back away. I see there is currently renewed interest in optioning her book for the screen. Any movie or TV show would need to deviate so far from the source material, in order to avoid a lawsuit, that it would hardly be worth buying the rights in the first place. The bigger Zoe gets the more visible her walk-in closet of skeletons will become.

    It’s difficult to see where she can go from here. The book doesn’t seem to have sold particularly well. It’s hardly a foundation upon which to build a career as a writer. Her other projects have met with varying degrees of failure and have left behind a trail of burned bridges and bad feeling among former collaborators.

    Quinn earned her celebrity by playing the victim. You can only do that for so long before the public sympathy dries up. Her problem is that she has nothing really to fall back on.

      Zoe Quinn = Michelle Fields

  • Maintenance Renegade

    From what I’ve seen banging around on the twatter sales of this have not simply been bad but have been truly embarrassingly bad which makes total sense since there’s pretty much only three markets for this farce of a book:

    1. SJWs in her circle or orbit purchasing it as a virtue signal
    2. Former GamerGate frontmen checking to see if it gives them enough material to file a libel case
    3. Youtube drama channels and e-culture cringe blogs

    Nobody gives a fuck about GamerGate in 2017, it’s just a torn up and muddy former battlefield in a broader culture war for the West most people don’t understand, don’t want to understand and have only been starting to become even vaguely aware of since about summer of 2016.

  • Toastrider

    I’m trying to come up with something referencing how Quinn and her ‘Crash Override Network’ were caught using some of the same doxxing and harassment tactics she complained about.

    ‘Stupid hypocritical whore’ is a nice insult but it doesn’t have the panache I need.

  • Deb

    I still think that What’s Ethics Got To Do With It is a better title.

  • JosephPantaleo

    I hear the working title was The Poop that took a Pee.

  • Samuel White

    ‘Cock Overdrive’

    I LOLed.

  • Botiemaster

    I guess cock gobbler has been busy with a book. I wonder how she got a company to agree to pay her money for her surefire hit….
