Loved the concept, liked the story. The story draws you in and you really can't quit till the end. My Only complaint is that it was a little to long and there was way to much of the same
situation happening over and over. Got on my nerves a couple of times.
That being said, I did like the story
Over the top stereotypes are something this author does exceedingly well. Narrator was well chosen. Characters are fun. Story puts together a forties feel with a science fiction spin. Great listen.
I found myself laughing out loud over and over. A lot of tongue in cheek humor. The characters are so surprising and endearing. I will be listening to this book again!
My headline pretty much says it. Liam is a old timey type of reporter with many colorful characters in his life. The story is fun because of the people in it. The plot is not totally inspired, but again, the characters make it great .
This book was very much a page turner at times, but overall fell a little flat. I would still try another Lovecraft, as a matter of fact I have. This just wasn't my favorite.
To put it simply, I'm not really crazy about the main character. She comes off very naïve, a little bit simple and blames herself for things clearly not her fault. If it was done once or twice, okay but it was through out the book
The storyline describes the making of a super hero. While this much is true, the way the father goes about it is nothing less than abusive and creepy. I do not like any of the characters. Everyone one of them come off as stupid.
I do not like the way they talk about women being a mindless object owned by man only good for giving birth.
Some reviews claim that this book is funny. Wow, a bunch of abusive idiots are funny? Not in my world.
Al, the 100 year old man switches between telling his life's story and in the present day a whole new adventure is being played out. He and all of his friends along the way develop into such an interesting down to earth people. It was so funny through out that I didn't want it to end. Worth every penny,
Cute story line, but I get the feeling that she wants to have some quirky/different characters but she doesn't pull it off,
It was an okay story, but I wouldn't buy it again if I were given the choice.
Wow what a new take on Cinderella. If you love science fiction with a true evil Queen this is for you. The Cindrella in this book is totally the most creative take on Cinderella you'll ever come across. Great concept, great story.
My only problem with this book is the ending. There isn't one. I know it's part of a series, but I like at least a clean ending point. The ending literally left you in the middle of the action.
I still would reccomend this as a great read.
