Publisher's Summary

There's a new sheriff in town, and he's got the Nightside's rich and powerful quaking in their boots. He's The Walking Man, and it's his mission to exorcise sinners - with extreme prejudice.

Problem is, the Nightside was built on sin and corruption, and The Walking Man makes no distinction between evildoers and those simply indulging themselves. He'll leave the place a wasteland unless someone stops him, and P.I. John Taylor has been handed the job. No known magic or science can affect The Walking Man, and if John can't discover his weakness, he'll be facing the very Wrath of God.

We've got more in Simon R. Green's Nightside series.

It's alright.

If you are reading this review, you likely already know if you are getting this or not. You are either totally plugged into the Nightside or you burned out a while back.

So, for those of you who will be continuing on, let me tell you. . .it's not as good as some, not as bad as others. Green has improved as a writer since we started our journey, but he still lacks as a storyteller sometimes.

There isn't really a villain in this book. Ok, our heroes aren't all that nice *in the Nightside*, but there are those people who take evil to that next level *in the Nightside*. (Sorry, I wanted to know what that felt like, *in the Nightside*.)

Anyway, John goes after what is really a force of nature style antagonist. John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. Then, John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. Then, John catches up to him, they talk, the antagonist kills a bunch of people (and things) and then moves on. . .

. . . and then a solution happened that caused my suspension of disbelieve to totally fall apart and I began to ask if Green was aware of what his main character gets up to in the books.

That's the story. It's worth a listen if you're still into touring the Nightside. Green makes the setting just as wonderful as ever, but he has found a new form of repetition that his editor needs to beat out of him.

As for the Narration, Vietor is always amazing.

Formulaic Plot, Amazing World and Characters

What made the experience of listening to Just Another Judgement Day the most enjoyable?

Marc Vietor is a great narrator. He really knows how to capture and convey a scene to the listern.

If you’ve listened to books by Simon R. Green before, how does this one compare?

This one is middle of the road in terms of the Nightside series. After a while you can spot the where the plot is going by and large but the world and characters are so captivating, you can't help but love it.

Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?

John Taylor

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

When made their way through Precious Memories. I'd go into more detail but..spoilers.

Any additional comments?

The series is rather formulaic but the world is so alive that each time you start a new book you're hoping that old characters will pop in for a scene or two.

Green Man Review's Review

It has been said by some reviewers that the novels in the Nightside series can be broken down into sections. The first three in the series are considered stand alone novels, linked by the mystery of who John Taylor's mother is and why his father drank himself to death over her true identity. The next three are definitely linked into one narrative as they deal with Taylor's search for her and the consequences of finding out who (and what) she is. The books after that are said to return to the stand-alone plot of the first three. Well, this is sort of true, but not really. A full appreciation of the Nightside series requires that you either read or listen to them from the very beginning with Something from the Nightside to the ninth one so far, Just Another Judgment Day. Fortunately Audible has all nine available, with the talented Marc Vietor narrating the whole series! I can't think of a better way to experience these novels!

Simon is honestly an inspiration to authors

This series just gets better, there is just something inspiring about the way he writes that engages me. The battle on The Street Of The Gods was honestly the best part to me, and the philosophical debates between John and The Walking Man just stuck with me. I love this Universe and I love Simon R Green as an author.

violent and uncomfortable

If you like horror, this is the book for you. I like the Nightside series, but this was too much "bad" for me. Little whimsy, just gruesome.

Only one thing

Any additional comments?

At the beginning of Chapter 9, with one hour left, there's scratching sound that lasts about 30 seconds.

saving innocents

The Walking Man (not to be confused with Walker) is God's wrath incarnate, but with none of his mercy. It's up to John to save the Nightside once again.

Love the Nightside, Sort of want to go visit

Despite all of the appalling things that happen in the Nightside, I have come to look forward to the next book and seeing what else is going to happen there. I love the idea of a flipside of places, like the London Below from Neil Gaimen's Neverwhere I like this hidden world that is known to only a special few. John Taylor is a utterly cool anti hero that always saves the day, even if he has to do difficult things in order to do it. Another good story. I like that Suzy Shooter is being more developed as a character.
