If you could sum up Just One Damned Thing After Another in three words, what would they be?

Fun, engrossing and entertaining.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Max.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of the historic scenes....or maybe the car revenge scene.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I was captivated from the start. I found myself standing still in the middle of the High Street at a pivotal point as the world rushed by!

Any additional comments?

I love getting to the end of a great first book in a newly discovered series. I've downloaded the lot one after the other. Thank you Jodi Taylor. Must gob book four awaits me!

Any additional comments?

I honestly don't think I do China Mieville credit. As an artist listening while painting, my mind is often not 100% on the story and believe me, Mr Mieville deserves 100%. The stories are always complex, thought provoking and sometimes the nearest thing to mental circuit training out there. I didn't give this book all 5's because I enjoyed it. I gave it all 5's because it deserved it. I was the listener equivalent of the woman who checks her facebook through dinner and I wouldn't dream of marking it down because I didn't commit to it the single mindedness it required. It is definitely enjoyable and extremely, extremely clever. I will come back to it someday and give it the commitment it thoroughly deserves.

Another great adventure from my favourite demon.

Jenks. He has all of the best lines.

Would you listen to Fool Moon again? Why?

Already have.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fool Moon?

Too many great moments to choose.

What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

Perfect comic timing.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

“I can't be under arrest now... I don't have time.” - Harry

Any additional comments?

“Black wizards don't just grow up like toadstools, you know. Someone has to teach them complicated things like summoning demons, ritual magic, and clichéd villain dialogue.” - Harry

A picture paints a thousand words, isn't that how the saying goes? These words painted a picture for me. I loved it and it's a favourite listen if I need a little quiet time. Don't bother if you want action and adventure, do if you want to sink heart and soul into 17th Century Holland and follow one life through the streets, sights smells and all.

I had to go back over the beginning of this a few times to get my head around it. That may have been the book and it may have been me but either way it was worth the effort. It was fun and fast moving if a little sexually uncomfortable at times. I’ll definitely be listening to more by this author.

Didn't enjoy this. I found the characters too cartoonish and some of the things they came out with made me want the dark side to win. Sorry Mr Konrath. I'm sure it's exactly what many, many people are looking for.

Wonderful.

Yes I know that this book is technically a teen fiction but at *mumbles age* I simply loved it. With it’s characters that my teenage self (long forgotten in the mists of time), fell in love with and a story that carried me along effortlessly. I would urge you to take a chance on it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but you won't be sorry.

I would have given this book a 5* rating but for the narration. Felix is very clearly form 'up north' but the American narrator can only really do a quite good but very cut glass English accent. I actually cringed sooo badly at his attempt at other dialects I think possibly Scotish or maybe Southern English that I had to stop the story because I was laughing so hard. That said the stories are fantastic. Give them a go. It's worth it.
