    I've been told to go to Hell more times than I can count. But this time I'm actually going. My name's Bobby Dollar, sometimes known as Doloriel, and of course, Hell isn't a great place for someone like me - I'm an angel. They don't like my kind down there, not even the slightly fallen variety. But they have my girlfriend, who happens to be a beautiful demon named Casimira, Countess of Cold Hands. Why does an angel have a demon girlfriend? Well, certainly not because it helps my career.

    A. Hogue says: "Mixed feelings"
    "Very Disappointing"

    Story
    What would have made Happy Hour in Hell better?

    The details of travels through Hell were so ponderous that whole chapters could have been skipped. I was particularly disappointed with the wrap-up at the end by way of an epilogue... that left way too many questions unanswered. More time on sound development of the story line and less of the junior high-school focus on the distasteful details of Hell would have been nice.


    Have you listened to any of George Newbern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I thought Newbern did a fine job. Too bad he didn't have a better story to work with. I have to suspect that he would have had a difficult time keeping his interest up in the story, too.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very intrigued with the first book, "Dirty Streets of Heaven." I really looked forward to this second installment of Bobby Dollar. I was terribly disappointed in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    It's hard for me to imagine a publisher's editors letting this get to press in this form. There were so many unnecessary chapters that should have been pulled out before this project was ever printed or performed.
