Sandman Slim (Sandman Slim #1)

Sandman Slim (Sandman Slim #1) - Richard Kadrey First the bad.

There were lots of typos. Missing words, extra words, that kind of thing. It drove me crazy. Other than that, I loved this book.


Then the good.

Stark is what I wished Dresden would be. Of course I had to make some comparisons, because I have been reading the Dresden Files series for a while now. There are similarities but not as many as you would first think. I always found Dresden a bit of a wuss to be honest, and I found his customary "Call me stupid but I am chivalrous to women, blah blah blah..." monologue in every book extremely annoying.

Okay enough comparisons.

In this book there was a lot of profanity, blood, gore, decapitation and if I remember correctly, even some poop jokes. Heaven, Hell, and in-between was all mocked. It was glorious. If all that is your cup of tea, then I definitely recommend that you read this book.

If I may quote some favorite lines of mine (and I may, because this is MY review, damn it!):

"I'm speculating how f***ed up a town has to be when it can't even keep a dildo-and-porn shop open..."

"Did I hurt your feelings again? Sorry. When this is over, I'll send some flowers to your inner child."

"I miss Alice.
'I miss my balls.' Kasabian looks around. 'Who f***ed up my room?'
'It's my room now and you did. When you blew yourself up.'
'Oh, right. That sucked."


I would like to go back and count how many times Mr. Slim stole a vehicle. Unfortunately this is on my Kindle and I am a Kindle noob so it's just too much effort to figure it out for a lazy person such as myself.
