Review: Futuristic Violence And Fancy Suits
Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits: A Novel - David Wong So I say this everytime I review a book by this author, this was insane! It's set in the not-so-distant future where the cars are self driving, holograms are a normal thing, and most of the world lives their lives either creating or watching a continuous live stream of their mundane or extreme existences. Zoe gets caught up in a mess of her late absentee father's making. There's his crew, the suits, who all wear actual fancy suits and are equivalent to the futuristic mafia. And then there's the evil villian Molech, who's basically a kid with daddy issues and a god complex. He wants to take over Tabula Rasa (and then the world) and pretty much destroy anyone or thing he deems unworthy. The problem is, that Zoe holds the key to either his success or epic failure. So basically there are people trying to kidnap or kill her, or gain access to the vast fortune her father left behind for her (which includes his company and his "Suits"), or they want to protect her. There are so many left turns in this story it's almost hard to keep up. The author kept me on the edge of my seat for this one. I was never really sure how it was all going to work out. The most important part of this book was that Zoe's cat survived all of the gunfire, explosions--basically carnage. I'm all about the animals people. And it wasn't exactly an open or ambiguous ending, but there was definitely the hint of a sequel. I shudder to think what kind of mess Zoe would find herself in in a sequel!

Review: What The Hell Did I Just Read
What the Hell Did I Just Read - David Wong

I feel like I say this every time I review a book from this series, but this was an exercise in insanity!

 

Let me start by saying, there's only so much I can say without spoiling.  I'm about to say something that may be of an unpopular opinion; I don't know because I haven't talked to anyone who has read the series, but here it is:  I don't like Amy.  I don't know what it is about the character, but she just irks the hell out of me, and I cannot remember if I felt this way after reading the first two novels.  Even though I get the reason for her character, at the same time, I don't see the point of her.

 

That being said, John and Dave had yet another not-so-excellent adventure in [Undisclosed].  Just when I think the author couldn't possibly come up with a more, profane, creepy, hilariously convoluted story than the last, he goes and does it with style.  The kind of person you have to be to come up with this stuff... all the blessings to the author's wife!

 

Seriously, this was creepy, funny, and ridiculous.  If you've read the series, you understand why it's so hard to describe.  If you haven't read the series, you're missing out.  Go read it.  Right now!

 

I went back and forth between the paperback and the audiobook.  Whatever audio issues people were having when it was first released must have been fixed, because I thought it was great quality and a pretty good performance.  I think I may have liked the narrator of the second book a little better--taking away nothing from this narrator.  Overall it was a very good story and performance.
