i haven't read a real non-picture book in a while. But, after getting a copy of this book i briefly read the first 2 or 3 paragraphs, however, by the last sentence, i had to keep reading this book. The character is awesome, the pace of the book did not bore me at all. I refused to sleep last night and read the entire book when i got home from work. The story took me to a very dark place filled with awesome characters and i found myself actually laughing out loud to some of the things the characters said to one another. the situation, although grim, the book was really a great fun ride. The only other time I have ever had this much fun reading something is when i would read Hellboy.
If you love all things macabre, demonic, with a little bit of Dr Who and Hellboy humor thrown in for good measure, then this is something you will love. I really can't wait for the second part of this book to come out. I hope they make this into a movie, because the characters are awesome! I had amazing nightmares after reading this book and it sparked my creativity instantly like no other novel has before. A MUST READ!!!!
Frankly, it's probably not quite a 3 star book; it's doesn't quite reach "okay" status. It might be a bit better than the 2 stars I gave it, but I can't give half stars and someone has to balance out the over-inflated reviews.
For one, this novel is very poorly edited. Frequent grammar mistakes are both distracting and annoying. But I can forgive those more than the author's frequent lapses into what I can only describe as "undergraduate" level writing--something a competent editor should have caught and suggested be rewritten. Saying someone sounds "like Ms. Swan from MAD TV" is pretty lousy description; it only makes sense if you've ever seen Ms. Swan on MAD TV. If that were the only example, I'd be nitpicking, but the book is fraught with similar samples of unpracticed, unpolished writing. And once you start noticing them, it's hard to notice anything else.
The dialogue is...not especially good either, and while the characters aren't completely flat, they are, for the most part, simple archetypes who never do anything to break their molds.
But it's not all bad. The story itself has its moments, and if you like action you could pick a lot worse. Despite what some other reviewers have said, it's not particularly funny, but it is full of slavering demons and pop-culture references, so if those things make you happy, by all means get this book.
It's intended to be mindless fun, and I think it succeeds at that; I just like my mindless fun to be executed a little bit more professionally and a little less "I published this myself on the Internet."
a great mix of humor, horror and hospitals. not something you can say every day.
Ancient Awakening wastes no time getting to the action, with some comedy and a lot of monsters thrown in. The author even does some reinvention of traditional monster folklore that works surprisingly well.
Get the sample and form your own opinion, then buy it and write a review about how good it is. You will - trust me.
"He needed a gun. A big gun, and a SWAT team, and an army, and maybe Chuck Norris."
For an action/horror/comedy mix I thought it had just enough comedy to be funny and yet not detract from the overall feeling. I'll be interested to see how the next one turns out.
