I haven't been so happy to finish a book in a long time. The concept is really interesting and I wanted to care but the constant penis jokes/taunts/fascination, use of the word "retarded" as a descriptor for people or situations, and, well, the author's voice and style all combined to make this a painful read. I wouldn't have finished it at all if I didn't need a book starting with "J" for an A-Z title challenge.
I'm sure I would have enjoyed it much more if I were a teen-aged boy.
The narrator did a fine job. Except for the voice he used for John sounded too much like Jack Nicholson.
it is an excellent story with a flawless, if slightly monotonous reading. I would definitely recommend it to people who like lovecraft and have the humour of a highschooler. All hail Korrok.
The book was very different And I would leave it that way.
The fantasy trip it took you down.
It was made into a movie, but it was a very bad movie.
crazy, cynical, unbelievable and captivating. These words describe this story best.
you'll lose sleep trying to finish it.
Stephen Thorne does a magnificent job acting out the varied characters in this exciting story.
This book had some memorable moments and ideas, but the writing style and organization were just atrocious. The voice actor did well with what he was given, but well-read garbage is still garbage. Avoid.
What a bizarre, intriguing story. I've never read a book like this before, and probably never will have the honor of doing so again... but it was very, very good!
Hilarious anecdotes and adventures, delightful characters, and some really crazy twists... I don't even begin to know how to describe this book except that it's eccentric, off-the-wall, and leaves you wondering, "why do I love this so much?"
If you're not okay with obscenity or get easily offended, this book is definitely not for you. It's pretty crass but didn't seem to be unnecessarily vulgar. It just is what it is and I loved every moment of it.
It was quirky, unexpected, and a delightful break from the usual, cookie-cutter novel experience.
The voice was just perfect for this character. I could picture him perfectly! His pacing was spot-on as his fast reading style made me feel uncomfortable and rushed, which set the perfect mood.
