Product Description

Review

“If Simon R. Green wrote an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, it would read much like Sandman Slim – violent, vivid, non-stop action of the supernatural kind. I couldn’t put it down.” (Charlaine Harris)

“Nicotine and octane in equal parts might come close to the high-energy buzz from Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim. Crisp world building, recognizable and fully-realized characters, and a refreshingly unique storytelling style make for an absorbing read.Sandman Slim is my kind of hero.” (Kim Harrison)

“The most hard-boiled piece of supernatural fiction I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. … all confident and energetic and fresh and angry. I loved this book and all its screwed-up people.” (Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother)

“Paced like greased lightning (watch out for friction burns on your turning finger), blend the movie-ish delights of tough guy noir and such smart-mouthgore-fests as “Reanimator” and “Army of Darkness”, seasoned by soupcons of Gaimanian romanticism and Koontzian sentiment.” (Booklist)

“Sarcastic, irreverent and ridiculously enjoyable riff on the Urban Fantasy genre. … a lot like a mosh pit -- rough, exuberant, unpredictable -- and a heck of a lot of fun.” (Miami Herald)

“The best B movie I’ve read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, Sandman Slim swerves hell-bent through our culture’s impacted gridlock of genres…it’s like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson.” (William Gibson)

I've become such a jaded reader over the past 5 years. I can't tell you how many books by well reviewed authors I've given up on. This book was fast paced, irreverent, bold and had a fresh plot that moved at break neck speed. Never a dull moment! It's an amazing romp! Many nights while reading it, I found myself falling asleep with it because I couldn't put it down, wanting to read just "one more page" before settling in to sleep.

I rented this from my library and loved it so much I decided to order it online. This book was a fantastic, dark, witty and you need a sense of humour for this book for sure! I've read 3 from the series and if you like the first book; this one.. then you'll love all the rest for sure!

I can't say enough about this book or its sequel. In the past six weeks I've read and re-read both of them at least 5 times. Crazy I know...but they are addictive and I can't put them down.

Format: Hardcover
It is the same kind of story as the Dresden Files, though missing the light humor, so if you like Butcher's work, you'll probably like this one too. It's a bit cruder/gorier than Butcher's though.

By same kind of story I mean that it has magic and fantastical creatures and/or abilities and is based on a 'special' guy returning alive from Hell to get even with the world. And the story flows exactly like you'd expect given this "plot".

For me it's just too silly, and if I'm going to read a silly dark book, I'd like it to have a bit of humor in it - this doesn't have any, or if it does, it just wasn't funny. I like books to have some realism and a point to the plot - a point other than mere shock value or as a method to introduce another way to kill/maim someone - this book didn't fit that bill.
