What made the experience of listening to Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet the most enjoyable?
The writing is superb and the delivery by the narrator compliments the author's words to create a very enjoyable audio book.
What did you like best about this story?
The voices of the characters in each story. The author does a great job of creating very believable, very genuine characters, from the protagonists to the smallest of characters.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
If I had to pick just one then it would be the finale of Damn Dirty Ape. But there are scenes in each of the three novellas that were very enjoyable. And the way the author structured the title story is brilliant.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I certainly laughed out loud at much of the inner dialogue of Reggie Levine in Damn Dirty Ape. And some of the more gross-out scenes in Die Dog or Eat The Hatchet even made me chuckle with morbid humour. Indeed, there are scenes in each of the stories that made me laugh. I think this is just the author's style.
These three novellas were brilliant. If you like Joe Lansdale's work, or if you just like pulp in general, then you are gonna love this. Dark, violent and very funny. The narrator was superb also.
