The last chapter gave me chills and gave me a lump in my throat. Laugh out loud moments are sprinkled throughout the book.
This is an extremely beautiful story about a man not only searching for the internet, but also himself and his purpose in life. Wayne Gladstone does an amazing job of painting a picture of a man who has lost everything, and goes on a mission to reclaim what was lost. Paul Michael Garcia does a wonderful job of making the characters and the punch lines come alive without sacrificing the emotion and the heart of the book.
Corey. Fucking. Taylor.
Corey opens up about his personal life, especially his younger years, throughout the book. Some moments are full of anger, while others are told in such a detached, apathetic manner that the reader is forced to assume that Corey has to detach himself or risk falling apart.
Corey Taylor's first book is amazing. He expertly sets up each "sin" for debate and delves into human nature to show that these "sins" are exactly that: human nature. Corey is a true talent using humor, anecdotes from his life, and the occasional f-bomb to get his point across. Whether the reader agrees with his views or not, they are laid out in such a way that the reader has to at least consider the author's point of view before choosing to embrace or reject the message.
Admittedly, I am a huge Corey Taylor fan, so this review may be a bit biased. I love Corey's writing style. It's brutally honest, funny, insightful, and doesn't give a shit what you think about it. He doesn't pull punches or shy away from the offensive, but comes at the reader with both barrels blasting, leaving the reader to either absorb the message or get the hell out of the way. Overall, an amazing story, read by the author in a voice that is all his own.
Yes. The story is so well written and performed.
Owen Pitt. He's not your typical action hero type guy. He's full of faults and mistakes and failings, but he has a quality that makes the reader instantly like him and want to see him succeed.
I bought this audio book because it was on sale and looked interesting. I didn't realize at the time that it would become one of my favorite book series. Larry Correia mixes humor and horror and action in a very interesting way. One second I was laughing hysterically, the next I was cursing one of the characters, and the next I was terrified as to what would happen next. Also Mr. Correia's knowledge and realistic depiction of firearms is refreshing in an age when some writers phone those details in. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book and the others in the series. I eagerly await the next installment and highly recommend this book to fans of horror/comedy/action books.
