Item description for Hopeless Savages Volume 3: Too Much Hopeless by Jen Van Meter...

This was supposed to be a leisurely vacation. Arsenal Hopeless-Savage has a rematch with an old high school rival in a kung-fu tournament in Hong Kong. She and her brother Twitch figured they could turn it into a nice jaunt with their boyfriends to meet their aging grandmother, a renowned Chinese fortune teller. Too bad Grandma Shi didn't phone ahead to tell them that it was going to be the trip from Hell! It begins at the airport when a shady character slips something into Arsenal's bag, putting the quartet on the radar of the local bad guys, the British secret service, and the Hong Kong police. It becomes even more complicated when the rest of the Hopeless-Savage clan decides to join the middle children in Asia, getting caught up in the international intrigue themselves. Arsenal is the only person that can get them all out of the jam they're in, and for her it's all too much!

Reviews - What do customers think about Hopeless Savages Volume 3: Too Much Hopeless?

tons of fun  Jan 17, 2005
Too Much Hopeless Savages is the third book about the punk rock family the Hopeless-Savages. This one is focused primarily on Arsenal, the oldest daughter of the family. While visiting Hong Kong for a martial arts competition and also to meet her boyfriend Claude's great-grandmother, Arsenal and her entire family become embroiled in international crime and intrigue, when a mysterious man plants some box in Arsenal's suitcase Misunderstandings, British spies, and kidnappings ensue and it's up to Arsenal to unravel the mystery and save the day.

Jen Van Meter also develops Arsenal's character with numerous flashbacks into the past which shed light on her reactions to the current situation. Like Hopeless Savages: Ground Zero, the flashbacks are drawn by a different artist than Christine Norrie who draws the scenes in the present, which can be a little jarring because their styles are so different, making it difficult to recognize the characters.

I also appreciate the writer and artists' ability to steer clear of the Oriental mysticism and exoticism that many other artists and writers have fallen into when setting their stories in Asia. The Asian and Asian-American characters are as realistic and well-rounded as the white characters.

If you're new to the Hopeless Savages this is probably not the place to start since there are a lot of complicated relationships that are fully explained in the other collections that are not spelled out here. But for fans of the Hopeless-Savages this is another excellent installment.
