Summary

Henry Bins has Henry Bins.
A sleeping disorder, named after him.
He is awake for one hour a day.
He wakes up at 3 a.m. then falls asleep at 4 a.m.
Life is simple.
Until he hears the woman scream.
And sees the man leave the house across the street.
But not just any man.
The president of the United States.

Decent Concept Poorly Executed

First, I am sick and tired of left-leaning writers and publishing houses taking childish jabs at conservatives in their poorly crafted stories. Such antics are needless and immature. If one cannot develop a solid story without such nonsense then perhaps one should not be writing. Second, although the premise of the story was moderately interesting the author did not do enough research on such a debilitating condition as to make it believable. Narcolepsy, Klein’s-Levin Syndrome and other similar neurological disorders which induce similar sleep patterns as the main character come with a host of health disorders making ordinary function even for one hour per day improbable. I could not suspend reality long enough to buy into the main character as a daily sleuth-for-an hour and simply could not finish the story.

Seriously fun!

For those who have listened to Nick Pirog's Thomas Prescott series the Henry Bins series is what made Pirog famous. Pirog started self publishing for the Kindle format with Henry Bins. These books are marvelously creative and great fun. The short audio versions of this five book series are drastically overpriced, so it's best to wait for the September 24 release of the five novels in one audio book. Jamie Renell's narration is superb. The short publisher's summary sets up 3:00 AM (and the entire series) perfectly.

So bad it’s almost good

I can’t believe I sorta kinda liked this. It’s so inconceivably unrealistic that I actually got mad at some points... but I kept listening because I wanted to know what happened. It’s short enough, and it was a free download, so there’s that. The narrator helps. Oddly, even though it was bad, I’m about to listen to the next one. Because it’s so bad, it’s almost entertaining.

Fun gimmick, competent story

A fun gimmick, and an interesting mystery. Taking off some points because it’s not as funny as it thinks it is (especially the sections when he talks to his cat, which go on far too long for someone who measures his life in minutes lost).

Great short.....

Story! Creative, imaginative, fun and totally enlightening as to the relationship between the two main characters, i.e. The human and his cat. Don’t miss it. Good fun.

Entertaining until the end...

I thought this was a really great premise...awake only 1 hr a night? and it was a page turner until the ending. Seemed rushed. Could have been so much better if developed a bit more (and the killer was not such a lame choice). Still, I'm looking forward to the next installment because the character of Henry Bins is terrific.

Clever and Engaging

The whole premise of this book is fun: it's about a guy with a rare disorder that allows him to be awake for only 1 hour daily (and from 3-4am, at that). The caper that follows is clever, engaging and definitely worth 2 1/2 hours of your listening time. Props, as well, to narrator Jamie Renell for a story well told.

Another fun series

Enjoyed this light-hearted murder romp. The first in the 3:00AM series has me wanting the next. Nick Pirog writes some very entertaining tales. Hope kitty Lassie and his own dog are continuing characters. If you need a break from the heavy mystery/ crime stories but still want a little of both with some humor Nick is it. Great narration. I bought the whole series due to enjoying this one. Loved it all. Only thing, BIG disappointment, we are left kind of hanging...more to come but none has. Wish he had continued with more.
