Publisher's Summary

What do you do after you’ve escaped Hell, gone back, uncovered the true nature of God, and then managed to become the new Lucifer?

Well, if you’re James Stark, you have to figure out how to run Hell while also trying to get back out of it... again. Plus there’s the small matter of surviving. Because everyone in Heaven, Hell, and in between wants to be the fastest gun in the universe, and the best way to do so is to take down Lucifer, a.k.a. James Stark.

And it’s not like being in L.A. is any better — a serial-killer ghost is running wild and Stark’s angelic alter ego is hiding among the lost days of time with a secret cabal who can rewrite reality. Starting to care for people and life again is a real bitch for a stone-cold killer.

    "Love the series keep this book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no... it's the Dresden version of ghost story.


    If you’ve listened to books by Richard Kadrey before, how does this one compare?

    It is like a filler for better books


    Would you listen to another book narrated by MacLeod Andrews?

    ABOSOLUTY!


    Do you think Devil Said Bang needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    it does, and it's so much better.


    Any additional comments?

    nah.

    "Loved it"

    Sandman Slim is the ultimate bad ass and his story gets more and more crazy but still so awesome! And McCloud Andrews reading brings all the characters to life. I love it!

    "Decent audiobook"

    Good book, but I only really enjoyed it when he was stuck in hell. Once he left it started getting confusing.

    "A good continuation"

    Sandman Slim is now Lucifer, getting bored with Hell and all the politics. Demons are still trying to kill him there, so he has to sneak out to have any life at all. He escapes back to home and finds out there have been a lot of changes. Great narration of all the characters help to make this series so interesting, with its warped sense of humor that will keep me coming back for more.

    "Better than the last two"

    At least the last book I"ll be listening to in this series was better than the last two but not good enough to keep me listening. There were more things happening than just fighting, even though there was a lot of that.

    If you like a lot of violence and gore with not too much of a story line in between you might like this series but it just wasn't for me.

    But it does have a great narrator.

    Story
    "A satisfying continuation of a great series..."
    Where does Devil Said Bang rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Devil Said Bang picks up a few months after Aloha From Hell ends. I didn't do it, but I suspect it's more satisfying if you read Devil in the Dollhouse (book 3.5) before you grab Devil Said Bang. In any case, it's more of the same Stark and supporting characters you've come to love and expect. Witty banter, plenty of entertaining metaphors to paint the Sandman Slim universe, and a plot that moves well make this book a fun, gritty, and downright blasphemous good time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil Said Bang?

    I really enjoy the direction and depth that Stark's relationship with Candy is taking. When she pops open the box-turned-rifle and immediately tries to shoot it, Stark says 'that's why I didn't load it'. That was a moment where I felt both characters totally got one another.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    The variety of voices he's able to find and their accuracy to how the characters are written.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A helluva good time.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series so far! I would like to see a little more into the mythology behind what it takes to receive 'salvation' in the Sandman Slim universe. I mean, ultimately if anyone deserves it, it's Stark.

    "Incredible! I want MORE!"

    read them in order as this is book 4 - so good I will go back and listen to them all again. Keep a pen and pad close as you will want to write down some of the really funny lines!!
    like "Hell is circus run by mental patients. Heaven’s a gated community where we’re the bastard step-kids the real kids hate. Daddy’s little mistake." and "… couldn't have gotten me more confused if he'd pumped me full of LSD and tossed me in a spinning mirrored room full of rats" and some are really thoughtful like "It doesn't matter if you and everyone else in the room are thinking it. You don't say the words. Words are weapons. They blast big bloody holes in the world. And words are bricks. Say something out loud and it starts turning solid. Say it loud enough and it becomes a wall you can't get through."

    "Brutal dark and hilarious"

    I love this series and RK pulls it out of the bag again, do not start here I would recommend you read the first three books first, though there is some recapping, if you have not met James Stark before your in for a treat.
    Stark is stuck in hell, his angelic half having taken the key to the 13 doors, as the new Lucifer Stark does a very poor job of it, finding the job monotonous, paperwork is just not his thing, the only excitement is that everyone is trying to kill him, both upstairs and down.
    I love the intricate world, story-line, full rounded characters, the snarky don't give a bleep attitude had me laughing out loud again. Dark and gritty this series follows it's own rules and agenda standing alone which is rare these days.
    Superb perfomance by Macleod Andrews
