About the Author
Dennis Liggio is probably some sort of sorcerer or a robot sent back in time to save the future. The cover story he is currently using is that he grew up in New York but somehow ended up in Austin, TX nearly two decades ago. His current whereabouts in Austin are unknown, but there has been some success luring him out of his secret lair with tea, Chinese food, and those fancy little cornbread biscuits that you get at certain restaurants that always seem amazing while in the restaurant but are never close to that good when you get them home. Rumor has it that if you say his name three times in front of a mirror at midnight in a darkened room he will appear and give you Hostess Fruit Pies.
That's three ways I could describe the main character in this book. This book has it all; adventure, intrigue, and even a tiny bit of romance. While at times you may balk at the stories as the narrator goes through them - you will also find yourself googling to find out if such things exist. It makes for an interesting, never-boring or stagnant read. It's also a quick read and you'll find yourself finished before you're ready to be (hint: time to download the second in the series). Charming and quirky I'd highly recommend checking it out - along with any of the authors other books which I have loved equally.
Was expecting maybe exaggerated stories or i don't know but it sure wasn't anything I was interested in. Couldn't picture forcing the rest of the book and stopped reading at about 1/4th of the way through. I hope he does well but I certainly did not like this book at all. bonus star for no memorable typos/grammatical errors.
Casually stroll through something like a dozen different genres with the cynical slacker protagonist of the "Damned Lies" series, and you might learn something. But I doubt it.
Mostly you'll encounter a whirlwind of weird, with all enough violence, reality-bending and mind-f*cking for any rabid genre fiction fan. I especially enjoyed the tangent into Carlos Castaneda territory. Oh, and there jokes and references and riffs on tropes. It's a road trip into a meta-mash of beyond-the-fourth-wall, post-irony adventure.
All that, and our hero's madcap memoirs are housed in a frame story that I expect will pay off in future volumes. So it's got that going for it.
This was a fun, fantastical book that really lived up to its name. In an odd way, it reminded me of the looping odyssey that Pierce Anthony created in his Incarnates of Immortality series. Readers beware, it is one of a series, and you will be drawn in.
This is good escapism. Don't expect reality. Just suspend disbelief and read on. The writing isn't bad at all and the characters are interesting. My only complaint might be wanting the adventure segments to be longer.
