May I have some more? Marc Vietor Rocks this series!
This is not the book to start with, though each in the series can stand alone, they really are better read in order... Dark, funny, excellent world building!
Can't wait to see what's in store for John Taylor now that "Walker" is gone... or is he?

Feels like a novel and then a short story. Really confusing when listening. One story concludes then something else starts. Shoot the editor.
So much of Walker ! I loved it ! And the twists ! I was riveted ! Thank you for this Nightside ! Dialog was so real it was like I was standing right there ! Marc Vietor should play Walker in the movie ! The performance is outstanding ! Thank you Marc ! Thank you Again Simon R Green !
Not gonna lie, I will miss Walker. Still dealing with the aftermath of the Lillith War, and Walker wanting him to step into his shoes, John has time to search for an old friend.
I really enjoy this series. John Taylor, His teenage secretary, Suzy Shooter, Walker and the rest of the gang are always up to shenanigans. These books are very light and fun. They are fast moving and they are a great distraction from real life. This is another great book.
fantastic characters and descriptive passages, very entertaining and funny. A great read for a teenager, as the hero is so unwilling to conform and accept responsibilities forced onto him, even within his strange unconformist world.
What disappointed you about The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny?
I do not enjoy Mickey Spillane genre novels
What was most disappointing about Simon R. Green’s story?
I didn't make it through the first chapter
Which character – as performed by Marc Vietor – was your favorite?
Marc Vietor narration is very good.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
If you like this genre, I expect you will enjoy it
Would you consider the audio edition of The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny to be better than the print version?
Yes, It is better because the narrator acts out the different roles and makes the tory more interesting.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny?
When Jhon kills Walker.
What does Marc Vietor bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
He uses different voices for different characters.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The verry last sceene when Walker confesses to John.<br/>
Any additional comments?
Great overall book and I love the way they leave you hanging, so you will read the next one in the series.
What made the experience of listening to The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny the most enjoyable?
This book is a good balance of great character portrayal by the narrator and Simon Green's amazing writing. My husband started me on his books and they just get better and better. I have to pace myself with the Nightside series so I don't run out before the next one's out! Now if they would just do his Fisher & Hawke series, too!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Being the boss isn't all it's cracked up to be where you never live the same night twice.
Any additional comments?
Smart, funny, quirky, action-packed...who could want more?

I just don't even want to spend the effort to write a real review of this book. The NIGHTSIDE series, which started out so well, has become a joke. With each recent installment, Green repeats the same formula used before. Even the same words! For details, please see my reviews of the previous two novels, The Unnatural Inquirer and Just Another Judgement Day. Honestly, I wouldn't have even picked up The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny if I hadn't already purchased it (and the rest of the novels) when it was on sale at Audible. That'll teach me. The audio production and narration by Marc Vietor is excellent, though.
