Many a grin to be had here. There's always a fun little twist or an amusing paranormal blooper to laugh at. I had a great time reading this book and suffered no issues with "forging on" like it was a chore to get through. When a cranky old vampire demands the DVR be bespelled to play a show, and owns capes that are hand-wash only, I always had something that kept me chuckling!
The rest of the book's bunch are fun (if often ageist in depiction, unfortunately) and as the stories go on, the cast increases in scope. The book definitely needs a few more female characters to balance out all the many men. I want to see what the author will do with them!
I love Mr. Peanut. Really. I would buy a life-size, cuddly toy version of him if it were available.
At the beginning of the collection, the author has a tendency to telegraph her punchlines, but thankfully I didn't notice that happening any more a few chapters in. She also has her favorite misspellings—obviously she used spellcheck, because her misspellings are legitimate other words, but at least they are misspelled consistently so you get used to it. (I was surprised that the plural of a Regency era piece of clothing made it past spellcheck! We got "fichus" when "ficus" was the word needed.) The one time she spelled "lightning" correctly, I had to do a double take to make sure I was reading it correctly (instead of "lightening"). The thing that really bothered me, though, is that the author doesn't realize that nouns of direct address need commas to either side of them. This drove me CRAZY!
So please get a line editor for your next book, which I'll be looking forward to buying!
Stop reading reviews for the book, and just shell out the couple of bucks and try it for yourself- I was surprised how quickly I was sucked in!
Each story in this collection is a new adventure that brings more laughs, new characters and a great escape for the reader. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves satire and is looking for a break from the stress of everyday life. J. Bennett will have you grinning from ear-to-ear in no time.
