I would recommend this book only to those who are not offended by extreme grotesqueries.
The story was a bit predictable but it was so raw and startling that I did not expect a lot of the imagery that took place.
The brother sister relationship established at the beginning of the book built a great foundation for the reader to get pulled in. Even in the short duration of the pages - the characters were crafted carefully and you actually get to know them before the darkness takes over the story theme.
It was over the top blood and guts! I wasn't expecting the punch in the stomach that it provided.
There is never a moment in the story that is not filled with action and imagination.
The chemistry and wit between John and Dave is beyond exceptional. I think every reader can connect with the two charaters.When the two discover how to use the "fur" gun, it actually had me laughing out loud while listening.
Stephen's performance was over the tops. He went from being the scientific psychologist, to be Amy, to being a distinct John and Dave voice - seemlessly throughout the entire story. he is one of my top narrators!
John and Dave Save the World - Twice!
As with most Bentley Littlebooks, the boring writing fills every story. He tries to compensate the banality of the storeis with shcoking content that tries, and fails, to make up for the poor story lines. His story lines are an assult to anyone expecting a good read.
He could try developing a story with good character development and plots that are not dveloped for their shock value.
The narration was quite good, although I feel sorry for Mitch for having to read the content.
The child molestation equates to child porn.
I believe that while listening to an audio book, the narrator always provides the reader with a unique perspective and imagery that the avid reader will not receive. As a reader of the stories, one might not catch some of the subtlies of the humor that a voice can inflect.
The unexecpected humor breaks made me laugh out loud. It added to the fact that I completed the book in record time - then went back to re-listen to my favorite stories.
As I mentioned - the narrator is exceptional. His wide array of character voicings is incredible. He goes from a serious toned detective style character to a crazy redneck with ease. Without his wide array of complex character voice developments - I would not have appreciated the dead-pan humor at the junction of pivital story development. I have completed many audio books, and I believe Mr. Andrews to have the widest character selection I have come across.
The Furby character in the S.A. story is absolutely awesome. Sometimes in a horror story you wonder why it is necessary to go in the basement or split from the group and walk alone in the woods. For once you get a character that does the opposite. They end up doing what you want and are right there where you want them. This makes it unexpected and pulls you in to cheer them on!
