    Very disappointed

    I was hoping for a fun and witty book in the style of jasper ffordes thursday next series and am sorely disappointed. The author drags out the story with a plotline that doesnt make very much sense, catty commentary constantly nitpicking at the poor fashion sense of other characters, mind-numbing "witty" dialogue that is anything but, and mildy-offensive racist overtones. I'll read just about anything and have never written a negative review before, but im about to close this book and delete it from my library simply to stop the torture of reading this junk.

    Aweful, don't bother.

    I generally finish most books I start, but after several chapters of terribly forced prose I am giving it up. The racism was really the last straw.

    Entertaining

    I picked this up on recommendation that Terry Pratchett fans might like it. Though it is no where near the humor and creativity of Pratchett, I did find it entertaining. The writing is not the best but it is readable. I enjoyed the characters but the sarcasm and line of thought writing was getting a little old by the last quarter of the book. I did pick up the next in the series because I did enjoy this one enough to stay interested in the characters.

    This is nothing like Jasper Fforde

    It was okay. It could use a good editor and the characters were flat.

    Quirky and fun

    With a certain quirkiness reminiscent of Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series, Jason Krumbine has created a bizarre cast of characters: Alex, the Private Investigator who manages to stumble through cases by pure luck, Nicky, the metrosexual secretary who is more interested in clothing choices than cases, Christian, the not-quite-alive ex-partner who seems hell-bent on killing Alex (well, it's not Christian's idea, it's those pesky voices), Angie, the ex who gets hired to be Alex's bodyguard but just may want to kill him herself, and all the wacky clients who hire Alex under false pretenses. The plot is a frenzied and outlandish race as Alex tries to find Nevada in time to save the world from Pookie.

    Written like a rambling from someone's brain (complete with frequent and extensive parenthetical comments), the writing style is quirky and somewhat fun at first, but begins to become somewhat grating towards the end. It's difficult to judge the writing style, as the run-on sentences, sentence fragments and oddly formatted sentence structures seem to be created by design, not accident. It's a quick, amusing read, but a bit like being in the brain of someone with an attention disorder. Slightly out of context, there are a few comments that come off as simply racist. I couldn't quite figure out if they were meant to be funny, but they just seemed out of place.
