Publisher's Summary

Henry Bins is only awake one hour a day.  

Can you imagine only being awake for one hour each day? Can you imagine having to cram your entire existence into sixty measly minutes? Two minutes to shower. Three minutes to eat. Five minutes to watch TV. And in that 3600 seconds you have awake, imagine that you have to figure out: 

  • Who murdered the woman across the street? (You suspect it was the President of the United States, but can you prove it?) 
  • Why did your mom abandoned you when you were six years old? (Was it because she worked for the CIA? Or was it because of your condition?) 
  • What caused your strange condition where you wake up at exactly 3:00 a.m. then fall asleep exactly an hour later, then sleep for twenty-three hours? (Were you experimented on? If so, by who?) 
  • And most importantly, what is Project Sandman? 

Welcome to Henry Bins’s life.

Always entertaining

After listening to a rash of formula mystery fiction, this was a breath of fresh air. Well written and great narration.

3am premium

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed all 5 of the am books. The humour mix with crime mystery is awsome! Hope more books from this author is on the way.

Left me wanting more, more, more. What's going to happen to Henry Bins dad? Will Henry's condition continue forever?

Creative fiction! Fun fiction!

The two words that best describes this series of five short novels are EXTREMELY WEIRD. Protagonist Henry Bins has Henry Bins disease which means he is awake for only one hour daily from 3 AM until 4 AM. I suspect the genre that best fits the series is humor, but a case can be made for political thriller. The author deserves 5 stars on creativity alone. In any case I recommend the series. Narration by Jamie Renell is extraordinarily good.

Author Nick Pirog is a very accomplished author of mystery/thriller fiction. His Thomas Prescott series is outstanding.

Meeooow meoow meeooow

By book 2, I couldn't listen to the narrator meowing anymore. Seems like a silly reason to hate an audiobook, but I found it infuriating. It's like whatever the opposite of ASMR is.

Great story but needs some research on some parts

I really enjoy Nick Pirog’s stories. Very enjoyable and fun. However, there are quite a few scenes where incredibly unrealistic things occur. Case in point - a car that has WiFi when all the cell towers are down or a nail gun that shoots nails through the air both straight and with enough force to stick a bad guy. Especially when there is no air tank involved. Just saying...

Certainly looking forward to the next installment. Really great series. Narration was terrific and the storyline is just crazy enough to be interesting.

Boring

Never got to finish this book. The only good thing about it is the narrator. Managed to get two thirds through , then thought why am I bothering? The story is farcical to say the least. I'm not going to try and describe the story. couldn't find one. Mostly about government torture camps in the USA. Don't waste a credit on this.

I loved this!

I'm glad I bought the entire series in one go as I couldn't stop listening. How Henry communicated with his cat is brilliant. The cat (Lassie) is a huge character and helps solve the puzzles along with Henry. If anyone can explain what happened at the end with Richard I'd be grateful as I clearly missed something key and don't understand what the outcome means. either way loved it.

3am series

I have read the book 1 & 2 and when I say all five were in this collection I just had to dive in.

It’s amazing what Harry Binns can fit into his one hour window that he is awake, witnessing murdrr, relationships, kidnapping - you name it it’s in here! That coupled with a cat who he has full blown conversations with you have a strange story indeed. But one that I enjoyed no matter how far fetched it became. The cat meows got a but annoying in the audio format but I was used to but the end of book 1 so knew what to expect. Lassie the cat is certainly a character in a half!! Great series and interested to see how the next part in Harry’s life and relationship is going to pan out….

what's with the cat noise

story and narration is enjoyable but the cat noise gets old very fast .
disappointed it's not highlighted in the sample as I'd definitely have avoided. it'd a shame as I'd followed the author from the Prescott series.

Each of the shorter books fills out a fun and interesting tale with a man who can only be awake for 1 hour a day... Good listening

it's the cat for me

a very unique point of view for a main protagonist. certainly one I've never encountered before but it works. Henry is a loveable character. I especially love the detailed and lengthy conversations held with the cat. many pet owners have this type of interaction and i loved to see this reprinted in the story...

Please don't meow again

thoroughly enjoyed the story and narration, aside from the in depth conversations with the cat. pointless, and the meowing was so annoying. I did make it through though. Just. I'm glad i didn't give up, but i came close multiple times.
