Very fast moving. So fast you don't really warm up to any of the characters that well. It's a somewhat interesting story about the reaper bizz. I think my favorite characters out of the whole book were Minty Fresh and the hell hounds.
This was great! Todd McLaren is a great narrator. He gives this story a Mike Hammer flavor reading from first person. Lot's of twists and turns in the story.
SEX, oh yeah and graphic too. So if you're put off by really bad and VERY descriptive language concerning sex, this might not be the book for you. But the scenes are few. So if you get the book and you're offended by this, fast forward!
My only complaint is the descriptive nature of the story. It sometimes gets in the way of the action and the story, bogging it down. it's almost about the descriptions more than the story at times. In places it's fine if the story is at a bit of a stand still. I've found that some authors get overly descriptive right in the middle of an action or fast moving scene causing the scene to 'get lost' in describing every minute detail to the point of losing the thread of attention that should be taking place to keep the pace.
WOW, this is the back alley of history in the US. You'll learn things in here that nobody would dare teach in a classroom. This is tabloid type history lesson where nothing is held back. This is the greasy sh*t you want to know about and not the whitewashed facade we got in school.
Looong on paperwork and letters. There were certain sections that chased interest with long, dull reading of his every letter that he wrote in between. I guess if you need to read a full history of the man then this is it. But if you'd like a brief history of Ben then this isn't what you're looking for.
Not his best work. I think you'd have to be an office worker to get behind this one. I kept losing track since I couldn't stay interested in it.
This was just a regular somewhat futurist story. Nothing exceptional, in fact the author seems not up on technology.
If acid could take acid that just ate acid, that's this book. REALLY good narrator. It's written well if you like the subject matter.
I'll file this in with Ex-patriots and Spawn under, "Don't open till - NEVER AGAIN!"
This brought up so much emotion for my own life. It makes you examine how you live and what you've done. It's like an evaluation of how to run in life and what's the most important. One of the best books in the Audible library.
This would be pretty funny as a comedy film. Somebody's gotta pick this up and run with it.
Too much dialog slows the story way down and makes it confusing. One loses their place in the story by the large blocks of unrelated dialog.
