    Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones.

    Jason says: "Exciting story, well told, with a great villain"
    "Just couldn't take any more"
    Overall

    Owen Zastava Pitt must go down as one of the stupidest characters ever written, and he knows it. How many times does he say "This is stupid and I shouldn't be doing it." yet he continues to barrel in not learning anything from his past. And Larry Correia must think that the longer, and more drawn out, the major action sequences the better because they go on forever. I got through the first book and gave it first book-itis syndrome but decided to try the second. I couldn't finish and that's hard because all I'm doing is sitting in my car listening. Owen is just a lumbering ox who gets very lucky but is still an extremely irritating character to try and understand. Give the man some smarts, perform some judicious editing to the obscenely long action sequences and apply even a little bit of logic and/or common sense and I might have been able to finish. But no such luck so I can only say I hope the Old Ones eat Owen Zastava Pitt.

  • True Grit

    Mattie Ross, a 14-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. marshal in the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true American classic, as young Mattie, as vital as she is innocent, outdickers and outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last through the ages.

    Tommygaus says: "So worth it!"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I tried to like the narrator, I really did. Since the book is told by a female character it made sense to have a female narrator. Unfortunately her style was extremely stilted and she had no range in her characterizations. Other than a slight change in inflection or accent there was almost no way to differentiate one character from another. And the pause in her delivery was beyond annoying. Ultimately I lasted 90 minutes before giving up.
