Writing style is not easy to read; first person narrative works best when there are not two separate narrators. The POV shift every page or so made it difficult figuring out which "I" is speaking.
The story is written as if it were a TV series (cartoon) where there is no overall goal defined. It is one disaster after another until the end and only then to you find out that there never was any overall goal.
Jaycee is homeless with only an action figure and deep secret to his name. But his life changes dramatically when his father ends someone to find/fight him. Jaycee frees the beast inside and then given a task from his estranged father: find a girl robbing banks. To say Jaycee knows nothing is an understatement. He quickly learns that all those cartoons he watched a child are basically real.
I loved all the '80s trhow back and the integration of the cartoons as part of real life. I enjoyed the various goings on but it's incrfedibly violent and gross. In this way, it is not like the cartoions at all. Because of this I am hesitant to read any further books in the series though I would love to read about Jaycee's further adventures.
The writing is fast passed pushing the action forward. The only issue on a techincal side, is there are are trhee or four instrances when wording gets out of order. While chaging up and moving parts around makes for enagging reading, these instances made confused about what was going on because they didn't flow and I had to reread.
Rather enjoyable, Old School Evil was a nostalgic rush with too much gory violence.
I received a copy through Goodreads; all opinions are my own.
I was a little confused at the beginning of the book. I didn’t understand that there were two first-person narrators. That’s on me, though. The visual cues are there.
Once I understood the structure, I loved this book! The mixture of realistic action adventure and cartoon-like protagonists hit the sweet spot for an animation fan kid like me.
Hopefully the beginning of a series!!! Thanks again for the book!!
