Greetings fellow Ubuntians!
I am looking for the name of a book that I read several years ago, while I was in the 9th grade perhaps. It is definitely the weirdest book that I have ever read and I would like to find it, mainly just so that I can read it again and show my friends this magnificent work of completely messed up art!
Anyway, in the book, Martians had arrived to earth and essentially taken over (if I remember correctly, I believe it was a peaceful takeover). The Martians looked like humans, but were taller and always wore black suits and sunglasses. The biggest change they made to how things were run on earth was that they replaced all currency with stomach juices (yes, you read that right). Basically, they drove around buses which you could enter to extract stomach juice when you needed some currency (kinda like a blood donation buss, only without blood and you got to keep what you took out).
The main character was generally not very pleased with the martian takeover, but was especially concerned with the health effects of repeatedly removing stomach juice for humans.
This is pretty much all I remember about it, if it rings a bell for anyone that would be awesome! I believe the author was Russian (chances are, from the soviet times), but I read it in Swedish.
