I usually gravitate to the darker side of fiction, but when I saw the audiobook was up for grabs it occurred to me that something a little lighter might just be what the doctor ordered. I was not disappointed. This one was exactly what I was hoping it was going to be. It was quick, light and entertaining and there was no shortage of laughs or silly antics either.
Written well, with a nicely developed cast of whacky characters and a really well produced and executed audio. Very nice all around. 4 Amazon Stars and recommended for an easy, entertaining listen.
Flaming chickens, a Samurai warrior luchador, eye-butts, turtle demons and Stoney and Fergie the Greyhound poop machines. It’s all there.

I found myself wondering why had Jack asked me to read this book. I don't really like dogs and I'm not a big fan of farce in general or romantic comedy in particular. It was cute enough. It was sort of funny and silly. A dog walker was getting into all kinds of shenanigans dealing with vicious pit bulls and so forth. And he had a crush on a cute girl who would obviously turn out (after some wacky hijinks) to be the love of his life.
Then about three chapters in things took a hard left hand turn. Suddenly there were demons and cultists and a Japanese luchador. There were dogs with magical powers and a massive conspiracy, and even a kappa. So I went back and re-read the synopsis, and even the original e-mail Jack had sent me. He had compared his novel to JOHN DIES AT THE END and THIS BOOK IS FULL OF SPIDERS by David Wong, and I think those are fair comparisons. What had started out as a dog walker getting into some farcical situations had, by the end, turned into a unique vista of a non-Western hellscape, and yet the whole book held together. If you like either of those books, or the sort of verging-on-bizzaro gonzo horror genre in general, you definitely want to pick up this book. I'm looking forward to reading more about the dog walker Ben and his supernatural charge Toby.
I finished the book and still haven't decided if I liked it. Some of the images created stick in my forehead like a creepy demon, yet with an odd twist of humor. Some disgust and some are just bizarre and nonsensical. I can say the book is memorable. If you want to sample something a tad bizarre off the normal path this book may be what you are looking for.
I received a free sample for review.
It's not often a book makes me laugh out loud, but there's a great use of subtle jokes and light-hearted moments that really enhance the storyline without taking away from the drama. Not only that, but there were some really unexpectedly moving moments in here too. I don't want to give any of the plot away, but I loved how well the other-worldly locales were described in the book. They were really vivid.
Great read overall, and I'm looking forward to more from this author.
