This is a monster of a book, and within its pages can be found monsters of many types (not every character is a 'monster', though - there are some rather nice folk along the way - and some are nice but still monstrous). Before beginning this book, I'd suggest parking any preconceived notions about demons, wizards, dwarves, queens princesses, etc., on the doorstep, because while you will encounter all those things in this book, they aren't going to be anything like those you've encountered before. For that matter, I'd suggest forgetting any notions you've already formed regarding any place named Hell, because Fraser's Hell is going to be different from any you've likely even imagined before.

When I say it's a 'monster of a book', I mean it is long - very long - what I've always called a "doorstop" book.
In this case though, while it is long, it isn't too long. I'd give it a 4 1/2 star rating if I could, because it's as well written as everything else the author has produced, and it's hard to find a fault with the book at all. It's quite well written and equally well edited.

The fault, if there is one, lies with me in that this isn't the type of book I normally read and so therefore doesn't fall into the category of "I love it", which is Amazon's criteria for five stars. I like it a lot, though, and I can't help but think that those who like Tolkien will love it. Personally, I had a hard time with Tolkien, although I finally did come to appreciate what everyone else was raving about when it came to his books. This book is indeed epic and an adventure, in much the same way that Tolkien's books were those same things.

Brilliant that hell has a disco & the waiters are infamous characters from history. Witty dialogue and really interesting situations that the characters fine equally unique and interesting ways of getting out of during the course of their adventures. I'm so glad I picked this book up which is truly a blend of Tolkien & Pratchett.

"From Hell" is a highly imaginative work with characterization that's definitely well above par, in a vein that evokes Tom Robbins' best work. The only thing that held me back from giving the book 5 stars was its abrupt ending that leaves a few loose ends too many to be satisfying. If this was done intentionally with a view towards a sequel in future, let me stand corrected and amend my rating to a full 5 stars.

I borrowed this book as a Prime member and it looked good so I chose it as my once a month freebie. I didn't expect much but as a price of 0¢ I figured I''d give it a shot.

Well, just wow. What a great book. I would buy this in book form if it were available. It's a little too long for my tastes but it's so clever and funny - and very well edited. Is it really a 5 star, well maybe 4.25 stars but I want this author to write more - he's really good at this.

To Hell?
Hi there Specklebang,
sorry about the delay in replying. Didn't notice there was a message in this book's forum. Thank you for the kind words. Yup, you're probably right, 'To Hell' is most likely to be the title of the next installment - when I get around to it. Have written a three-volume work... Read More
