Sean Penn’s debut novel “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is not meant to sensationalize today’s political climate in the United States, but book reviews from Entertainment Weekly and USA Today can’t seem to help but compare the ideas in his new novel to the state of The Times in the US. It is a book that Sean Penn intends to be an entertainment, but as far as book reviews would state, the brilliance of Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is that it can’t help but be compared to what’s happening in the country under the Trump administration.
Entertainment Weekly (EW) describes Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff as an entertainingly trippy read that makes readers scratch their head in disbelief at the ideas presented as well as the insanity of the actions of its protagonist. With a style that reviewers said to be comparable to Hunter S. Thompson and Thomas Pynchon, readers of Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff would be fascinated by how relatable the political environment in the novel is and how the absurdity in Sean Penn’s story somehow speaks to general truths as a citizen of the modern world. EW also added that the writing style of Penn is ambitious, and is almost bordering to ingratiating, but it’s hard to argue that it’s a book that features all the political stand and personal worldviews of Penn himself.
The book is also described to be about a man named Bob who is a baby boomer doing odd jobs, including being a septic tank operator as well as an antisocial oddball that’s hired by special parties to exterminate compromising individuals. USA Today also described the book to be a dystopian narrative that feels like it describes the madness that is supposed to be experienced by many Americans today.
USA Today also highlighted the poems and unconventional writing styles that Penn wrote for Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. Such structure is meant to give authenticity to the entire story of the book. The random verses of poetry spread about in the book also give the novel a feverish feel that gives the impression of clear-cut madness of the setting.
There’s also a highlight from USA Today on the ambitious, poetic, lyrical and definitely cerebral approach of the novel about the setting that Bob is in. The real world aspects contained in the novel is seen also by USA Today as a means to inject it with satire.

German immigrant, Otto Kolschowsky founded a small butcher shop and meat market in Chicago in 1909. Almost two decades of success and moving his operation to another suburb of Chicago, he renamed his small company Otto & Son’s. Otto and his sons, Arthur and Harry, worked hard for years building their reputation before the end of World War II. Meanwhile, in San Bernardino, California, McDonald’s was growing just as quickly. Ray Kroc was a franchise agent for McDonald’s when he approached Otto & Son’s.
Arthur and Harry worked closely with Ray Kroc as the first beef supplier for the new restaurant in Des Plaines, Iowa when it opened in 1955. From there, the two companies grew side by side. Kroc soon bought the franchise and worked to keep growth steady, as did Otto & Son’s. In the late 1960’s, flash freezing became vital to their success, throwing Otto & Son’s into the top four suppliers to McDonald’s nationwide. In 1973, any operations not involved in supplying McDonald’s were combined under the Glenmark brand. Finally, in 1975, OSI Industries was born from the nearly 75 year old family shop.
OSI Industries brought Sheldon Lavin on as a partner after working with the company as an investment consultant for five years. Under Lavin’s hand, OSI Industries expanded nationally during the 1970’s and 1980’s, working in tandem with McDonald’s. From the late 70’s on, both companies moved on toward Europe, starting in Germany. At the same time, Lavin became the CEO of the growing company. Due to Lavin’s expertise, OSI expanded globally. There were soon ventures in Taiwan, India, Australia, and Japan from 1987 on. OSI Group acquires Baho Food
In 1996, their plant in Oakland, Iowa began processing pork products. The early 2000’s saw expansion into poultry production starting from the 1996 acquisition of Moy Park, a UK company. Then in 2014, OSI Industries branched into a joint venture with EDEKA, a grocery chain popular in most of Europe. Due to their sprawling empire, a new trade platform was established. Based in Germany, MPO Global Trade focused on OSI’s poultry ventures in Brazil and Thailand. Somehow, this expansive company has also developed a very successful global Research and Development department and focuses on their environmental impact. After all they do, OSI industries still works with local charities.
