Not my usual type of book.
I knew little of the era and this was informative. Worth a read especially if you are interested in crime and americana

I know the first part is very purile, however, in a strange way it makes perfect sense. Enjoyed it as a light hearted novel. Much better than the Douglas Adams books, personal preference. Scalzi can make up some fantastic names of races and places that make sense.

I don't know what to make of this book. Reading other reviews its like marmite, you either love it or hate it. Personally it was a waste of 5+ hours listening. Reminded me of Catcher in the rye, so if you like that or catch 22 you'll probably like this novel.

Previously I have read the John Milton series as I don't usually read ordinary crime novels. Glad I tried this one. Excellent read full of twists and full of Mark's touches. The narration was great, Simon Vance has a great delivery. The book was of a similar feel to P D James novels of Cordelia Gray.

Not the usual Special Forces thriller. Characters well developed and story interesting. Will certainly read his other books.

Great Story superbly narrated.

John back to his previous form. A great read with a lot of action and soul searching from the assassin. Can't wait for next episode.
