SJ over at Book Snobbery got a sneak-peek of THE WRONG GOODBYE (which, for those playing along at home, will be available stateside on September 25 and October 4 worldwide), and... well, I'll just let her tell you:
"I liked Sam even more this time than I did last time (which is saying something, because he was pretty cool to begin with), but what really made this book exceptional were the new characters and situations. Without giving too very much of the plot away, there’s a road trip with the body of Abe Frohman (if you don’t know who the Sausage King of Chicago is, I really don’t want to be your friend anymore), junkie demons, some creepy as hell non-aligned creatures and of course references to both the apocrypha and pop-culture.
I giggled, I was uncomfortable, I gasped (in what I hope were all the appropriate places) and I turned the last page (figuratively, dur – it’s an ebook, don’t you know me by now?) with a slight feeling of sadness. I started 3 other books yesterday after finishing this one, and not one of them was able to hold my attention. It’s kind of win:lose – I loved this, but now nothing else seems to be worth reading."
Oh, and she gave me 4.7 out of 5 stars. Which, you know, doesn't suck. But I confess, the score doesn't matter half as much as the fact that after me, nothing else seems to be worth reading...
