Even with the glaringly obvious resemblance to Riggs, Murtagh, Goetz and Rene Russo's character, I was pulled in from the first chapter. The storyline is ridiculous and the ending; although not predictable, still silly. I truly enjoyed this romp on the fun side. PETA people shouldn't read as animals were hurt in the writing of this story.
All joking aside, I do recommend this book. I hope a sequel is done or is being written.
Absolutely. My first read was the Haunted House which was a mixture of all the survivors from all his books. And the detective was unclear until I read this book. It was awesome.
Be careful what you create!
Author please do not stop writing books like this we need books that scare you, make you laugh, and educate at the same time. KEEP WRITING!!!!!!
I have always enjoyed the audio for these. books but this one is horrible. I'll have to download the book and read it myself. This guy's voice is like he's giving a tour of an old church or something. Zero emotion. Booooring!
The narrator. B Darcie did an excellent job.
I actually read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it. It's different from the other Konrath/Kilborn books I've previously read but I still enjoyed the story a lot. I will listen to this again...eventually.
This book dealt with several characters and he was able to execute different tones for each one.
I laughed a lot. Loved the Abe Lincoln character. Too bad he didn't have a bigger part in the book.
Maybe an uneducated teenager or younger.
Giant leaps of the unbelievable. I know its fantasy, sci-fi but even for that there could have been some uniformity, or flow. It asked the reader to not only suspend belief but to forget anything you've ever read or for that matter what you JUST read. UGH! It dropped plots twists like they were hand full of poker chips thrown willy-nilly. The characters were as this as onion paper.
I won't fault him for the bad story, the characters were ridiculous so them having different voices really did nothing for the story.
Anger, then disappointment. I wasted my money and my time on this drivel.
I have no idea how this got the good ratings it did, I think people must have "judged this book by it's cover" and nothing else.
I picked this book up because I heard that the author was good in the suspense and horror genres. It turns out to be a real winner!
No, I would not recommend the book. I liked it at first because the dialog was fast and witty. But as the story began to open up, it became more and more juvenile. Eventually, the story became laughably bad.
Mr. Darcie did a great job with the characters' dialog. I will look for more books that feature his narration.
No. I really had to fight through the last few hours.
