The Last Bad Job by Colin Dodds
I received a free copy of this book and a request for a review.
I had a really difficult time deciding how to rate this book because this is not the type of book I would normally read and I didn’t want that to negatively impact the rating. It’s well written. The story is well told.
That said, this is the weirdest story I’ve read in a very long time. I don’t really care much for weird stories. And yet… I realized that while I was trying to figure out whether or not I’d finish the book, and whether I’d review it or send the author an e-mail and say I wasn’t going to review it because it’s not my cup of tea, I couldn’t put it down. On the other hand, I skimmed over a lot of it. Just because I want to find out what happens doesn’t mean I want to spend time reading the details of the weirdness.
If you want a Hunter S. Thompson-esque romp through the apocalypse, you’ll probably love this story. If you just like weirdness, you’ll love this story. Just don’t take lightly every reviewer’s use of the term “weird” when referring to this story!
