Fruitbasket from Hell

"My name’s Alex Cheradon. I’m a private investigator. That means I investigate…private…stuff. I do NOT slay vampires, battle demons, fight zombies or vanquish evil spirits. In fact, you know what? Let’s just strike a line through the whole supernatural genre and call it a big no-no for me, okay? Steven Raines (you know, the man who made billions making an operating system that out-Microsoft-ed Microsoft?) hired me to look for his missing daughter."

Publisher's Summary

"My name’s Alex Cheradon. I’m a private investigator. That means I investigate…private…stuff. I do NOT slay vampires, battle demons, fight zombies or vanquish evil spirits. In fact, you know what? Let’s just strike a line through the whole supernatural genre and call it a big no-no for me, okay?

"Steven Raines (you know, the man who made billions making an operating system that out-Microsoft-ed Microsoft?) hired me to look for his missing daughter. Although, he’s pretty sure she’s dead. But, hey, guy’s offering me a million dollar payday, so I’m not going to argue.I’m also going to ignore the thing about her being a Satanist, the dead bodies that are piling up around me, and vampires that I find myself in the middle of. And that big thing named Pookie, I’m going to ignore that, too.

"Yep. I’m just going to ignore it all. For one million dollars I can totally do that. Now all I have to do is stay alive long enough to spend the money."

    "I wanted to like this book...really"

    I applaud the attempt, but the humor and overall structure is junior-high quality (no, really...I've taught junior high lit., and this is what I would expect from my students).

    The narrator doesn't help with what sounds like a "Weird Al" impression.

    "No"

    If you're looking for good supernatural noir, don't look here. If you're looking for good comedy, don't look here. It ought to be both, but it's not. Rather, as someone else mentions, it's annoying.

    "wierd, funny, different"

    i haven't finsihed this book yet, but had to write about it.
    this is not rocket science, nor a deep, thought=provoking book. it is a light romp of the ridiculous. just a fun kind of listen that helps the drive to and from work. i love the sarcasms that run rampant from the main character....so many of them i would have loved to say in real life! reminds me of the tv series 'scrubs'. so if that kind of humor appeals to you, this book is for you.

    "Crazy~but a fun listen!"

    It took me a bit to get into it, but it got better and better as it went on! I loved the narrator, he does a great job! This book is so full of sarcasms and wacky events its just fun! If you want a serious mystery dont bother with this. If you want some crazy, action packed, unrealistic fun, then this is the one! I can't wait to listen to, A is for Amnesia, B is for Bullet, the next Alex Cheradon Mystery...

    "I loved this book"

    I loved this book, it was a breath of fresh air it's hard to write comedy but Jason Krumbine had me laughing. The narrator keeps the feel of the book it tells you to let reality take a vacation. Can't wait for the next book

    "Interesting Concept but reader was annoying"

    I liked the idea behind the story, and I was able to understand the characters personality traits, but the reader took the sarcastic edge too far to the point of being very annoying. I forced my way through the story because it was interesting, but worked just as hard in ignoring the voice that came with it.

    ""Don't waste your money/credit""

    I brought this book, desperate for something to listen to, and was greatly disappointed. First of all, who the hell is the narrator?? He sounds ridiculous, and actually manages to distract the reader from the story. As for the actual book, it was confusing, weird and badly written. The bottom line is: you could use your money on something more enjoyable and better worth your time.
