Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Gil's All Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer....

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner, and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin. And maybe - just maybe - the End of the World, too.

Gory, sexy, and flat-out hilarious, Gil's All Fright Diner will tickle your funnybone - before ripping it out of its socket!

    "superb"

    I laughed out loud several times. The characters were brought to life by the fantastic narration. Even the dead ones. I'll be doing several more A Lee Martinez books. Immediately.

    Story
    "Boris and Bela they ain't, and that's a good thing"
    What made the experience of listening to Gil's All Fright Diner the most enjoyable?

    A.Lee Martinez writes a very witty horror story, but Fred Berman brings it to life.
    The characters have personality because Mr. Berman gives a range of voices that is pretty amazing, yet his narrator's voice is great.


    What other book might you compare Gil's All Fright Diner to and why?

    Compare to Too Many Curses in the way that a very good story is made better by great but not over the top voicing of characters.


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

    This is my first book with Fred Berman as Narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's pretty funny throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy A Lee Martinez writing, and appreciate the voicing of characters by Fred Berman.
    I have already purchased more of A Lee Martinez audio books and expect those to be just as entertaining.

    Story
    "The fantasy for people who hate fantasy"

    If I had to sum up this book in a sentence, it would be: "Two rednecks save the world in a Poe-dunk town where vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and black-magic welding cult leaders are so commonplace that they barely serve mentioning." Literally. You are going to love this book.

    Story
    "Very good Characters, fine Story"
    Would you listen to Gil's All Fright Diner again? Why?

    The characters are nicely drawn -- most are, at least. I would have fun getting to know them better.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The main adversary is a bit mono-dimensional. She could be improved. There are a few hyper-bombasic things in it that could be dialed down.


    Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favorite?

    Duke. He es a a bit "the Dude" :-)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The voice performance is really great. It makes me laugh, yes.

    Story
    "Did it again."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gil's All Fright Diner to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print edition but t he audio edition was pretty fantastic!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Duke. The Werewolf. He just was. Noble, fierce, passive, powerful, discerning, smart and yet just a country bumpkin (if I can use that word).


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

    Yes. Just finished Divine Misfortune! Fred is one of the greatest!


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

    Just "Duke and Earl."


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of cursing, but I do understand the nature of the setting of the novel. I wanted to listen to this with my children but too much cursing.
