Lots of action, Lots of blood and guts. Missing was some explanation of what happened to unleash this hell. How did it start and if a terrorist attack then how did it seemingly happen in multiple places at once? Overall a good read though.
Another piece of evidence that Lee is hit or miss as an author. I especially get put out over over the top southern accents and stereotypical white trash language and thought process. I really get the impression that Mr Lee has never even met anyone from the south or Appalachia yet he writes like he is an authority. These people are poor not out and out stupid. The situations are unbelievable and border on outrageous for the shock value only. Shock does not always equal good story!
Ed Lee is an acquired taste and his stories/novels can be hit or miss. Overall I enjoyed this collection of stories. Of course there were some that just did not make the cut but that is true in any short story collection.
Very good debut novel. Winner of the Stoker. Tale of a man coming to grips with his not so pristine past. He is the victim of a vengeful ghost sold to him on Ebay! Great writing with only a few flaws. This was a page turner until the end. It actually had a little surprise at the end.
Easy read, good violence but the plot really makes no sense. I never did understand why the protagonist got his panties in a twist in the first place. Ok read but it was like most of Koontz's works...not that special.
I liked these stories. Most short stories can be hit or miss. Most of these were well written. I didn't read the last story as I am not into comic books. If I wanted to read a comic book, I would buy one.
Bland. The characters were bland, the action was bland, the story was bland. This is a dystopian story about the over corporatization of the world. Of course the corporate world was made a villian as well as the NRA. There was also the cheering for big government that fuels the Left's world.
Finally got around to marking this off my vampire to do list. While it depicted traditional vamps (not sparkly teeny-bopper vamps), it still was not a very horrific read. Louis is a frigging wimp for a vamp. There was too much emphasis on feelings and not near enough ghoulish vampirism. I doubt I will read more of the series.
