5.0 out of 5 stars One word, incredible! September 22, 2011
By JLeigh
Format:Kindle Edition
It's amazing that Pudge can do a morality tale in a horror/comedy.

My boyfriend kept talking about this guy named Jimmy Pudge, and I was bored last night so I took his Kindle and started reading "Bad Billy," a book he bought last night. I don't really care for horror too much, but I immediately noticed that something was different about this guy's writing style. I've actually never read another writer like him. I'm not sure who I can compare him to. I started reading "Bad Billy," completely expecting a disappointment. I mean, the guy in his introduction refers to his readers as his "partnas in crime" and talks about how he started writing this in prison.

Anyway, at first I was shocked by what I was reading, a poor inbred baby born in a grocery store toilet and stuck in a basement for most of his life. There were a lot of funny moments, especially the character Uncle Ethan, but then something else took over and this story was no longer just a horror/comedy. I felt like it was a sociology experiment. A man who has never interacted with society suddenly gets thrown into the world, and his reactions are horrifying. But is he bad?

The book is divided into 4 parts, the first called "Tales of Innocence", the second, "Tales of Experience." Do you recognize these titles? Pudge is channeling Romance poet William Blake. In no way should this story be considered literary, but it is! The English geek inside me kept going, "Wow! This is incredible."

Bad Billy does some really bad stuff. There is tons of gore throughout, which I personally don't care too much for, but I understand why Pudge does this. He is a horror writer, so I'll excuse this. Part III of the book is called "Man," and part 4 is called, "Monster.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Story February 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll start by saying that I enjoyed this story and that it is obvious that the author has talent. The problem that I had was that it felt like there were three really good ideas for stories sort of shoe horned into one title. I don't really want to say much more for fear of spoiling parts of the plot for other readers. Over all a good story that the author tried to fit just a little too much into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Billy is One Bad Mother! October 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like your horror stories irreverent and violent, then Bad Billy by Jimmy Pudge is for you. With nods to Marry Shelley and William Blake, Pudge has crafted a modern take on the hapless fate of the Frankenstein monster set in a small Southern town. Life hasn't been kind to Bad Billy and he's out to pay back anyone who looks at him cross-eyed. Just as Shelley's monster takes fitful steps toward self-awareness, so does Bad Billy, and as her creation finds its only friend to be a small girl, so does Bad Billy.

Billy is hounded by those who have no desire to understand him - they only want to end his besotted existence. Billy kills nearly everyone he comes in contact with, and author Pudge is expert at describing the grisly details of Billy's destruction. If you're squeamish, avert your eyes. Jimmy Pudge's writing is graphic and in your face. Even with such a terrifying protagonist, Pudge makes us care. It's not Billy's fault he's so horribly ugly, nor is it his fault he's been treated so despicably all his life. Who can blame him for lashing out? Well, the community he's terrorizing can. They do their best to end his lousy existence, but for the most part their efforts are inadequate. Bad Billy is one bad mother!

That's not to say the only thing Bad Billy has going for it is violence and destruction. No, there's a solid plot at work here, that has a purpose and a point, and there's a strong sense of pathos at play. There's a lot to like in this book. You might think you have everything figured out, but halfway through, the novel takes a left turn and you're knocked off your feet again. Pudge never lets you regain your footing, as he races inexorably toward the denouement with not a single wasted word.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weird January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very weird. It's kind of all over the place and suddenly there's vampires and werewolves. It was okay though and definitely not the worst free book I've downloaded on Amazon

2.0 out of 5 stars Did I just read that? March 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Well .... What just happened? Did I just read that?

Er ..... This book kind of kicks off with a story and simply GOES FRIGGING MAD!!!!

Pudge has a talent, but at the moment it's a wild demon, riding all the way to hell on the back of a screaming, three-headed skeleton that's coked out of its three skulls.

If you could lasso Pudge's talent, bang it up for a year in a bear cage right in the middle of a lunatic asylum and have psychotic maniacs throw concepts and theories and forms at it, and after a year take a million Jimmy Pudges and a million typewriters and throw them into the bear cage along with the brainchild of all the crazed, schizoid psychos, and lock the million Jimmy Pudges up for another year with their million typewriters and give them nothing to eat but ghosts and demons and banshees and instruct them to ..... type.

If you could do that, you might, just might, come up with a story that glues itself together.

I would not like to be inside Jimmy Pudge's head in the dark hours of the night when phantoms are abroad. They would be no match for him!

It's gross. It's foul. It's weird.

It's also funny and dark and well written and awesome. It is a snack book, but totally worth it.

And I'm hooked.
