on June 23, 2011 :
This book has everything. How often do you hear those words describing a novel? Except for the time I read through my Funk and Wagnalls during a particularly long rainstorm, I had yet to find any literature to contain even a close approximation of everything. That all ended when I read this novel by Mr. Sell.
Get out your checklist. Does the book have a reanimated Neanderthal? Yes! A lesbian biker gang? You bet! A bumbling spirit who enjoys sniffing things? Bingo! Gratuitous use of the letter R? Indeed!
The novel keeps a quick pace whether the characters are battling their way through Iraq, beating up a nosy investigator, or discussing the weather. A warning to parents, there is a brief nude scene in chapter nineteen that children should read with eyes closed.
According to Smashwords, the novel weighs in at a hefty 88,539 words which might be off-putting to some readers who find their mind drifting halfway through the average tweet. Fear not, the name “Thammavongsa” accounts for a full one-third of the book.
I highly recommend this novel and look forward to reading the sequel.
