Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Just as the Bourne franchise gets better with each movie, so does this action/spy-thriller series. Things seem to be looking up for 18-year-old Perry Stormaire. He has been accepted to Columbia, and his new girlfriend works in the music industry and has convinced her boss to send Perry and his band on a European music tour. The only downside is that his family insists on tagging along. During the band's first stop in Italy, Perry is nearly killed. The beautiful assassin, Gobi, arrives just in time to save him, but not without dragging Perry on a dangerous adventure that spans several European cities. Gobi's new mission is to kill several targets. This time, she's not out for revenge, but rather working on behalf of someone else, and she's not doing it for the money, either. Gunshots, explosions, and bloody fights rev up the action, but it's Gobi's motivations that move the story. Perry may be the narrator, but her conflicted and painful past makes her a complex and sympathetic character. This sequel to Au Revoir Crazy European Chick (Houghton Harcourt, 2011) will feel somewhat familiar. Just like in Manhattan, Perry is unwilling to accompany Gobi as she tracks down her targets. When the lives of his family members are at stake, he has to put his faith in the hands of a dangerous woman. Except this time, his feelings for her are deeper and more complicated. A thrilling sequel that won't disappoint fans.-Kimberly Garnick Giarratano, Rockaway Township Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Several months after Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick (2011), Gobi, the foreign-exchange student and trained killer who led Perry on a whirlwind prom night, is out of Perry’slife—but certainly not off his mind. Perry and his band, Inchworm, get the chance of a lifetime with a European tour, but he doesn’t even make it to the Venice hotel before thugs, guns, a dead priest, and, yes, Gobi derail his rock-star dreams and force Perry to trust his instincts. Once again, Schreiber’s revealing of secrets adds depth and darkness to an otherwise action-movie plot. The cinematic qualities will quickly draw in readers, whether or not they’ve read the first book. Grades 8-10. --Heather Booth

Customer Reviews

This sequel to Au Revoir Crazy European Chick is amazing.
Hannah
One thing I didn't like is the mention of previous events involving the main character - there is not much of an explanation as to what exactly happened in the past.
Darla Mcgranaghan
All of the fun that was captured in the first book continues in this one.

This is a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride that nonetheless ends up being just OK overall. I thought it was interesting, and it kept me entertained, and even engaged, throughout. Yet it was so ridiculously over-the-top that even normative suspension of disbelief had to be taken to unreasonable levels. And, in the end, I just didn't care that much about what happened to the characters. I haven't read the first book (this is apparently a sequel), but I never felt lost or confused re: what had already happened. Your mileage may vary, but for me it was just so-so.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Perry's Killer Playlist is an action packed novel centered on our anti-hero, Perry. Unlike James Bond, he is not too swift when it comes to women or life threatening situations. Yet still, he manages to survive both.

This novel is a follow up to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. Like a lot of people, I had not read the first book before reading this one. But for those who read a lot, it's not too difficult to pick up on what the author is trying to do here. And as far as I am concerned, it's a success.

The story is designed to be pure entertainment on the surface. Yet the sheer number of puns and often repeated international thriller scenarios makes it obvious that there is also a fair amount of parody and satire written into the story. I found myself laughing out loud through a lot of the story. Perry's interaction with his girlfriend and her predecessor, Gobi, mostly made me cringe. But it seemed to be a central theme that pushed the story forward.

The author prefaces each chapter with a song, and since people are trying to kill Perry I am guessing that is why those songs make up his "killer" playlist. It's clear they are placing that pun front and center. In some of the chapters, the song's title or lyrics have an obvious connection to the story. In others, I still have to think about it to understand the connection. But either way, I like the writer's taste in music. Your mileage may vary.

CONCLUSION

This is an action packed and entertaining read that is just as silly as it is unbelievable. If you can't enjoy this, I wouldn't even know what to recommend to you. This is just plain fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I suppose a sequel shouldn't be faulted for taking up much the same riff line as its predecessor, but Perry's Killer Playlist isn't a whole lot more than that. The opportunities that are thrown at Perry and his band Inchworm at the kickoff are so obviously too good to be true that the only suspense is in wondering just how and when the whole balloon will be deflated. It also won't surprise anyone that super-assassin Gobi, the titular character who turned Perry's world upside down and inside out in Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, takes exception to the entire setup and proceeds to threaten Perry's life at nearly every turn while explaining nothing once the two of them hook up again. Perry's haplessness continues unabated, to the point that it's hard not to think he might have a masochistic streak. And if one thought that things went rather badly for Perry's family in the first novel, that's nothing compare to what they have to endure here, including some sexual shenanigans that would shake any teenage boy to his core if he wasn't being hassled to literally within an inch of his life already.

Schrieber still knows how to keep the pace up, but that's about the only thing that stops the mounting improbabilities from snowing the whole narrative under. Perhaps most disappointing is the sense that he's lost his grip on--or perhaps his interest in--Gobi, who isn't so much a character as a propellant this time around. She wrecks havoc for reasons that don't have sufficient weight to erase the impression that she just doesn't know what else to do with herself. As for the title, one only hopes it came out of marketing rather than from the author, because it has nothing to do with the story.

This book is a sequel to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, and also, known as Pretty Lethal (same book but with a different title and cover). Read Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick first! It is a great sequel and Perry is caught up in all kinds of action. Once I have hooked students in reading Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, they wanted to know if there was a second book. This is a quick read and full of action for those who are reluctant to read. I enjoyed both of these books, they are in my list of favorites! Let's just say after you read Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, you will look at prom in a whole different way.

This follow up to Au Revoir Crazy European Chick Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick (Perry & Gobi, #1) does not disappoint with Gobi crashing Perry's band, Inchworm's World Tour Through Europe. Perry now has a girlfriend, Paula and he tries to fight his feelings for Gobi. As they jaunt all over with guns, bodies, and lots of screams and blood, you really do wonder if this time, Gobi and Perry can survive. But we are talking about the world's greatest assassin, when we talk about Gobi, are we not? A rip roaring good read!

More About the Author

I was born in Michigan in 1969 and lived all over: Alaska, California, Wyoming, all before age 10. The restlessness sank in -- after graduating from the University of Michigan, I just kept moving. I've lived in LA, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Oregon, and Martha's Vineyard. Constant relocation forced me to be creative in my employment: I've been a pet-sitter, an office boy in a DC law office, waited tables and worked at something like six different Borders Bookstores...which has to be a record. These days I work as an MRI tech at Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA.
