Damn it, David.
Molly's chapter was adorable.
The end when David was talking about writing the book.
John. His sense of humor kills me and you know he'd have some good stories.
If you have any doubts about a sequel to a book you loved, it shouldn't be this one.
I learned something new "Dunbar's Number". The rest of the book is just a jumble of satire and stupid. I think the author wrote this to impress his girl friend, and get paid. There are probably a lot of guys this book appeals to but I felt listening to this was a waste of time.
Nick Podehl did a great job with this book. He was the only reason I was able to listen to the end.
Remove about 2/3 of the unneeded cursing and the story would at least be palatable.
After this... Probably not.
Yes, that is why I chose this book. Nick Podehl is an amazing narrator with the uncanny ability to bring characters to life with his voice. He had read many other books I have enjoyed such as the King Killer Chronicles, which I believe he did an amazing job on. But, it was infinitely a much better canvas.
No, I lost interest in the story about four hours in. I tried to like the characters and look past the gratuitous swearing, but after a while, I just had to stop. I didn't care enough about the story to go on.
Maybe I'll like David Wong's books more when he ages and puts more effort into broadening his vocabulary. But, if he keeps up this style, I won't be picking up his books in the future. It's kind of sad, because I wanted to like this book.
loved this book. now I must listen to all other words written by this author. Preferably all at the same time cause I'm very busy and important.
Crass, Ridiculous, HILARIOUS, Gory, Insane, 3 words just won't do the trick
I don't think I could choose 1. I shared about this with a friend and she listened at the same time, and we would message each other with squeeeeeeels we were enjoying it so much. Early on the description of bird eating spiders was something that my entire family had to listen to - I MADE them. The velvet Jesus painting was pretty spectacular (and I don't think I ever would have put those words in a sentence together).
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
wasn't a bad listen at all but not one where i was glued to my seat. kindof a mystery sci-fi with probably every sci-fi idea the author ever had jammed into the story whether it made sense or not.
book started with an appology by the author for the last book (i guess i need to read reviews on that one to understand why). i suspect his next one may apologize for this one. :) just kidding. it's not really that bad, but not great either.
A whirlwind of extreme violence and foul language, this family-friendly all-ages romp through the depths of David Wong's depraved imagination will titillate and amuse you into nightmares and PTSD.
