Unexpected find!

Unforeseen was actually a pretty good book. The protagonist is Thomas Prescott. He works as a consultant for the FBI. While most of the state of Maine believes he killed a serial killer the previous year Prescott thinks it was someone else. By the time he convinces anyone it's too late because the killer is killing again. This is story has a great plot. Interesting characters and is very suspenseful. It also full of lots of slice 'em and dice 'em scenes that many may (or may not find objectionable). Plenty of sarcasm, sometimes inappropriate. I personally didn't mind, it's fiction... there's not much that bothers me in a made up story. Johnny Heller's delivery is spot on! This is a narrator I wish did more. RECOMMENDED with some hesitation for some listeners If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Nick Pirog is finally available in audio!

UNFORESEEN was a beach listen for me in July. I'm not going to add to the publisher's summary. Instead, I'd like to discuss author Nick Pirog. Pirog is one of the most successful of the early adapters to independent ebook publishing. He has been famous in the ebook world for several years. His books are offbeat and very clever. I'm delighted that he is now joining the audio world. As is usual for him Johnny Heller does a great job of narrating.

One liners......

One liner almost every sentence . Protagonist is supposed to be a tough , rugged, handsome murder detective but has the sense of humor of a 60+ year old upper middle class man ( golf jokes, jokes that matlock or murder she wrote would like). Just didn’t fit for me. Good description of murder scenes , but the fat pug and all the women wanting this guy just wasn’t right

Fun Smart Listen

This book is funny, smart and holds your interest. Character driven with varied personalities, a narcoleptic dog and a psycho serial killer. Can’t wait to read more from this author

Thrill Ride

Laughing on the way up and horrified on the way to the end. Couldn’t stop listening. Great narration going to go for seconds.

I'm laughing out loud

While this book is not always "PC," I have to say I'm literally laughing out loud. I love Thomas' sarcasm, occasional self-deprecation, and his take on events around him. Storyline is good, and narrator does a great job. While certainly outlandish at times, the entertainment value and creative and fun way it's told makes up for it. I've been binging on all of the books in this series and sad to see there's only four.

Brutal, violent, misogynistic, but not a bad plot

The story was reasonably well crafted, and the narrator did a good job, but there were some major story/character issues. First, this was perhaps the most brutal and gory set of crimes I’ve ever read about. If you are sensitive to that sort of thing then give this one a miss. Second, the main character- a self-described “prick” - was extremely misogynistic. The way he talked about, thought about and treated women was degrading and graphic. Not cool. I do have one critique for the narrator as well: he did not do a Washington State accent (the protagonist was born and raised in Washington). The accent definitely contributed to the narrator coming off as a dirty old man.

Comedic and gore density both extreme

The other reviews serve as good summary. Would just add that it’s terribly gory. It was hard to keep a thick skin to that, and to the high degree of absurdity, so I could enjoy the humor. I have never read/heard any author try to juxtapose jokes and guts so close together. (There’s probably good reason it’s not done: for the sake of the audience.)
