Overview

Plugged by Eoin Colfer

The long-awaited crime caper so outlandish, so maniacal, so wickedly funny, it could have only come from the mind that brought you Artemis Fowl.

Daniel McEvoy has a problem. Well, really, he has several, but for this Irish ex-pat bouncer at a seedy, small-time casino the fact that his girlfriend was just murdered in the parking lot is uppermost in his mind.

That is until lots of people around him start dying, and not of natural causes. Suddenly Daniel's got half the New Jersey mob, dirty cops and his man-crazy upstairs neighbor after him and he still doesn't know what's going on. Bullets are flying, everybody's on the take and it all may be more than Daniel's new hair plugs can handle.

And Daniel's got to find the guy who put in those hair plugs--or at least his body--and fast, or else he'll never get that voice out of his head. Head-spinning plot twists, breakneck pacing and some of the best banter this side of Elmore Leonard's Detroit, will keep you on the edge of your seat and itching for more.

Loved this one, it has humor and style in droves. The lead characters are so strange, so funny, so believable - even when they are in unbelievable situations. Colfer has a real ear for dialogue, and the pace of the book is fast and furious. One piece of advice to the author: You cannot read Farmington, CT on the Long Island Railroad or on a Long Island bus, you need MetroNorth railroad to get to CT from NYC, but other than that, it's perfect in its portayal of living close to NYC. Recommended to everyone who wants an intelligent read.

So how does an Irish guy end up as a down-and-out bouncer in Cloisters, NJ? Beats me, but Colfer's penned a fast-paced, hilarious, dark story about it. I was lucky enough to get an early listening copy of the audiobook, and it's great. John Keating reads, so you definitely get that Irish flavor, and his accent is easy to listen to. The best way to describe this book is a "dark caper" - it's witty, smart, dark, seedy & AWESOME! Forget what you know of Colfer as a young adult author, and dive into this book/audiobook!

Fast, interesting, and a great read. Not your usual story that starts in a strip club - a welcome change. I recommend..

I liked Plugged. It's a good story, the humor of the noir jokes was likable, but the story petered out before the ending. It seemed that the author had run out of good plot turns by then. But still, read it, you will like it.
