There may be a Rock and Roll Heaven, but there is NO music in Hell. Satan HATES it! So much so that he's sending an envoy upstairs to get rid of musicians.
Let's say hello to Murmur, shall we? He's a minor demon who would love some recognition. Nothing would make him happier than to see his image on the cover of 'Fire & Brimstone.' And now, he's about to leave his old job in Souls Receiving for a plum new assignment topside. His task? Kill as many musicians as possible. Murmur is there when all the great ones bite the dust - Buddy Holly, Hendrix, Keith Moon, Lennon, Paul McCartney . . . (McCartney, you say? Well, duh - of course he's dead. He's the only one who's barefoot on the cover of 'Abbey Road'!) But somehow, the music isn't dying. Murmur needs to concoct a whole new plan. A devious, diabolical plan. . .
If you can't kill the music, how about making it a whole lot crappier?
I really enjoyed this one! Logan brilliantly mocks the music industry and celebrity culture in general. There are marvelous descriptions of the underworld and Satan's golfing attire. The characters are likable and sympathetic, even the demons and serial killers. AND, there's a kick-ass battle between good and evil for a finale.
Very funny and just the teensiest bit heartwarming. Highly recommended!
Oh, and as far as my ordering that Jeff Buckley CD . . . the devil made me do it.
Michael Logan takes a satirical look at Anglo/American culture and the obsession with celebrity. From the eerily familiar bureaucracy of hell to the cynicism in the entertainment industry he paints a thoroughly engaging tale of murder and mayhem, colored with dark humor and tempered with empathy.
The writing is tight, the story inventive, the descriptions rich, the characters believable, and the dialogue strong. I absolutely enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.
Logan’s writing in invigorating, inventive, wholly engaging and oozes satirical insights throughout. This is a writer unhampered by over-editing or expectations who simply writes the very best stories he has to tell. Logan’s passion for his work screams from the page. By the book’s end he has managed to pull the reader into the murky, classy, imaginatively filthy worlds of the music business, Heaven and Hell, and the psyche of a predatory serial killer.
Logan writes these characters extremely vividly and engages his reader so skilfully, that he or she comes to care about even the filthiest, most depraved of them, simply due to his passionate writing and his skill in presenting many-layered characters, whom Logan makes you empathise with and invest in, despite their flaws and sometimes crass behaviours.
With Wannabes Logan is an exciting new voice and joins a new breed of Indie and Hybrid authors, such Ryan Bracha, Gerard Brennan, Keith Nixon and Craig Furchtenicht, in producing quality, engaging, hugely imaginative and original, modern-feeling literature that oozes skill and creativity.
For me, Logan is my literary find of 2015 so far.
It was an absolute hoot and I found myself laughing out loud quite a number of times.
The writing is excellent, the characterizations spot on. Logan has a way of making you feel sorry for characters that usually evoke no sympathy whatsoever. I've also found my new favorite quote: "Humans did far worse things to each other than demons could dream up."
