Sunset Strip: A Tale from the Tome of Bill | [Rick Gualtieri]

Sunset Strip: A Tale from the Tome of Bill

My name is Sally. For over 30 years I've prowled the night, one of the undead. In that time I've walked amongst you - a wolf in sheep's clothing - doing unspeakable things, killing countless people. Now, on the eve of Armageddon, a chance for redemption presents itself. My past has come looking for me, beckoning me back to the city of my rebirth. Those who killed me the first time are intent on finishing the job. I'm outnumbered and outgunned, but they've got another thing coming if they think I'm outclassed.

Publisher's Summary

My name is Sally.

For over 30 years I've prowled the night, one of the undead. In that time I've walked amongst you - a wolf in sheep's clothing - doing unspeakable things, killing countless people.

Now, on the eve of Armageddon, a chance for redemption presents itself. My past has come looking for me, beckoning me back to the city of my rebirth.

Those who killed me the first time are intent on finishing the job. I'm outnumbered and outgunned, but they've got another thing coming if they think I'm outclassed.

Unspeakable horrors, both old and new, await me in the City of Sin, but in the end they're all going to learn one very painful lesson: Payback is a Bitch.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    Story
    "Something to tide you over"

    This book is a novella in place before the next book in the series which is out in print but not audible as of the writing of this review. The book is the usual fast paced, humor filled stories I have come to expect from this series. If you like the previous books you will more than likely enjoy this one.

    I think some of the negatives written about this series are more due to the lack of most of the main characters from the previous stories. I , for one, enjoyed learning about Sally's backstory and finding out what makes her tick. She had a sassy, smart-alec sense of humor, but it was different enough that I didn't confuse her viewpoint with that of Bill in the previous novels.

    I was kind of surprised by the low rating of the narrarator by other reviewers. I thought she did an excellent job capturing the attitude and cattiness of the main character. it was a bit over-the-top but then again Sally is pretty over-the-top herself. The only reason I rated the narraration so low was the quality of the editing and recording was one of the worst I have heard in many moons. You can literally hear multiple cuts when they stopped recording and restarted based on the amount and volume of background noise you hear.

    I could defnitely hear a lot of background noise in the recording such as moving pencils, the air conditioner changing and even some car noises in the background, The background volume also changes a lot during the recording. That definitely brings down my evaluation but not so much that I did not enjoy the book.

    If you like the series this is a good continuation, but I think you could get by without this one and just get the next book in the series if you want to save some money. Still, I liked it, but it is a little pricey for a 6 hour recording.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is important if you continue onto Goddamned Freaky Monsters. But I would recommend reading it, unless you can get past the Game Show Host voices the narrator uses for most of the characters. It was unbearable to me, but it is just my opinion. Though I was waiting for her to say, "And what's behind door number two? Well, Drew, it's a New Car!"

    "Narrator bad, story amazing"

    Read this one in print. I did and I loved it. After the narrator from the other Bill books, Christpher Fetherolf, breathed so much personality and character into Sally, I found it impossible to correlate this new narrator's voice and interpretation with the Sally I know and love. Just like the other spin off, Bigfoot Hunters, the narrator failed to do the book justice. Read it in print.

    "Sally Sally"

    Its nice to see Sally step up to lead a story. But the main subtext is where the HELL IS BILL!!!! But its still a very entertaining read and the end is a very nice payoff. Sally grows a lot as a character in this book and should make her even more so going forward.
