Look even if you???re only vaguely familiar with Kevin Smith work you can???t go wrong with this book. It is absolute gold. You???re going to be charmed by Smith???s witticisms and colorful pro???s, which range from hardcore nerd humor to a surprisingly wide knowledge of historic figures (the guy really is funny). I???m defiantly going to recommend this to everyone I meet, especially because it???s saved my sanity during finals week. Where I???ve been working full time on campus, and buried under a literal mountain of research essays. In addition, the fact that Kevin Smith decided to narrate this book himself adds to the flavor and really gives it a stand out performance.
The way of men is an extremely well written and researched work, which primary concerns the problems facing the man in this modern age. It fully answers the question "what is a man?" and " what is masculinity at it's core?". The work is extremely thought provoking as well as entertaining. The narration is spot on mostly because it was done by the author himself, so there is almost no way to hit the exact tons better. Over all I think this is a must buy for all men and that any man would benefit from its reading.
I thought this novel could have been so much more but it really wasn't. The plot was interesting enough however there are more than a few points where it drags and the reader is going to be bored. Overall I would say that there are much better reads out there.
This is probably my favorite in the series so far. Walt's time in Nam has often been alluded to, but never fully explained until now. This is really a great work that I enjoyed very much.
Murder in Corvis follows the exploits of what is basically a tribe of odd balls who are thrown together to solve a murder. I really liked this story War Machine is starting to suffer from the fact that their books are to short and simple. They could really make the world deep if they undertook the books with a serious eye towards making great stories instead of fun romps. I really hope they get some serious authors on the job soon.
This is truly shaping up to be a really entertaining and addictive series. This installment doesn't disappoint it's defiantly a series that's so good it can appeal to anyone. I don't think you should jump into the series here, you should defiantly get the first book.
This book really pulled me in, which is starting to become par for the course with this series. The great thing about Walt as a character is you can really take him anyway and it would be an interesting story.
Everything about this novel is amazing. Somehow Craig Johnson was a way of making the most mundane parts of Walt's life seem interesting. The plot overall is very compelling and the mystery isn't easily solved. There is actually some black hearted foes which will push Walt to his limits. All and all this is an amazing book.
I knew about the books from the TV series, and while the TV series is good most times I can take it or leave it. This book however is another matter entirely. I cannot say enough good things about this novel it truly is a masterwork of literature. The way the author describes the little town where Walter recedes it nothing short of amazing. Given the fact that it's a small country town you might be think there is a certain lack of anything interesting happening in the novel and there would be points where it will drag, I know that was the case for me, but rest assured this novel will pull you in through the strength and charm of the characters alone. There is a complex interplay between the characters in this story Walt and Bear being the most lovable and interesting. George Guidall with that smokey voice of his is the perfect choice to narrate this masterwork. This story is a most have and it is and intelligent man's crime novel.
I really loved this book. I think old Russell makes many great points and throws in enough clever wit and one liners to make this thoughtful and entertaining. Russell goes deep on many subjects and casts them in a new and old light. You start to get the picture that Russell is much more deep and highly intelligent then his outward exterior would lead most to believe. The narration is excellent and keeps you hooked in. It might nor be for everyone, but I think everyone and benefit from it.
The Wolves of London is truly a hidden gem. Some might say it starts off slow, but it builds pace quickly and it stays interesting throughout. There are many twists and turns and the story is imaginative and the world goes from mundane to horrifying rather quickly. The characters are intriguing and well flushed out. This book if without a doubt worth your credit. I am eager to read the next book in the series.
