My problem with this book is that the main character here has the power to do anything.
The writing is not that bad. Sam Spade + Magic. Its just the author Richard Kadrey has the main character here suffer, only nothing can hurt him, so its silly and you end up not caring about what happens next.
This was not only a great work of fiction but a great theologic parody. I truly enjoy when both good and evil, (God, the devil, demons Angels etc ) get pros bashed for their epic fuck ups! Especially when there is Sandman Slim there to mediate the situation and kick some ass.
I haven't spent a lot of time with this genre but this book has a gritty yet winsome strut.
Stark is a fun character that you want to learn more about. Really all the main characters draw you in.
I throughly enjoyed it. Lots of foul language and violence but this makes the book
I will be downloading the second book.
The narrator was brilliant!!!
Some of the basic ideas are interesting, but the plot and character development is juvenile. The characters are all flat and the plot just jumps from one nonsense event to another.
What a GREAT book! Totally unexpected. It's like Dresden Files meets Spawn with a nice Dogma twist.
The performance was spot on. Cynical, tired, punk narrator scum telling a tale of loss, revenge, and ass-kicking.
What a ride!
The narrator was awesome the plot was cynical comedy on top of pure baddassery fight scene and stark himself was awesome I had my doubts at first but was gladly proved wrong
