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!

Barely light reading

On the one hand, I have to give my respects to Mr. Green for his inventiveness of the nightside. The ideas that he comes up with for the setting, the plot, characters; all of that is really interesting and in my experience relatively unique. The problems I have are with the repetitiveness. When the first book came out we heard about John Taylor‘s “third eye, his private eye.” We learned about Susie shooter also known as shark and Susie also known as oh Christ it’s her. We learned descriptions of everybody and every place in the nightside, but with every new book everything is repeated. Up to the eighth and ninth book in the series he still talking about he’s opening up his third eye, his private eye. How many times do we have to be told that Walker has a nice suit with his school tie and his Boulder hat and his umbrella? How many times do we need a description of razor Eddie? How many times do we have to be told that he’s a punk god of the straight razor? I don’t know if it’s because Mr. Green has been writing so long his editor and publisher an agent just rubberstamp everything he writes, and apparently his fans don’t mind, but it’s ridiculous. Every time someone is going to start a confrontation, one of them always stops at a respectful distance. They’re always walking away on her ugly. Never nonchalantly, never blindly, never slowly. It’s always the same adjective. Over and over and over again. Why do I keep reading these books? Call me dumb but I’m hoping that he’ll get over this repetitivenessAnd just write a story. Does he really think that someone’s going to start a series and book 8 or nine? These books are not stand alone. I don’t know if this is a trend in this paranormal urban genre, but it’s very common and in my opinion is very lazy. Talking didn’t do this even JK Rowling didn’t do this-and I don’t mean to From Miss Rawlings omnibus but I think it’s obvious that talking and rulings styles are as different as green and Peter F Hamilton. Anyway for you guys we just want an easy read maybe you like to be reminded Of things that happened in the previous book, I think you’ll enjoy this series. For those of you however who want more discerning works of deer I say literature, a higher level of writing that doesn’t condescend, this series might not be good for you. And yes I understand that writers use gimmicks tropes whatever you wanna call them-But to repeat the same phrase in every book in the series and to never crack of the source to find a different adjective-to me that’s just lazy and the riders going to the motions to get a paycheck.

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.

The book is better

I quite like the Darkside storys and thought it would be fun to hear it read. I was so disappointed, the narration was very poor, unnecessary inflections made it hard to listen to and completely ruined it for me.
