Publisher's Summary

Most people would be overjoyed to win $50,000 and the chance to star in a nation-wide commercial, even if it was just for a fast food joint like Camelot Burger. Then again, Clint Tucker has never been like most people.
Ushered to the tropical paradise of Kenowai, he and the other winners undertake an island tradition for the cameras, one meant to free a local imprisoned deity. One with very specific requirements that have yet to be met. One that might just be a bit more authentic than any of them expected. One that will begin a journey fraught with danger, excitement, and more beer than is wise or healthy.

Hard to classify, reminds me of Anansi's Boys

What did you love best about Pears and Perils?

Thunder PUNCH!!! I enjoyed the set up and the quirky characters. These are areas where Drew Hayes is strong.

I've also read the 'Fred Vampire Accountant' stuff and, while I prefer those, I thought this was pretty great as well. I thought the ending was a bit weak (the guy at the end suddenly seems to have skills that were never hinted at before), but by then I was pretty well hooked. If you enjoyed 'Fred Vampire Accountant' you'll like this stuff as well.

From Eargasms Audiobook Reviews

This was a really interesting read. It is a little all over the place with the narrative. I love a mixed narrative, getting into many character's heads and POV. The problem here is that there are so many characters and the transitions are not always smooth. It makes things a little jumpy.

I did enjoy the story once it really began moving. The beginning is more of a slow build, which makes it a slow read. It is predictable, but not in a way that makes it unpleasant to read. I liked the characters and really enjoyed the whole group dynamic.

This book is a mix of island myth and modern reality tv, not so much a show but it has a reality show feel.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Matt Armstrong, who does a great job with all the voices. The voices of the island people are tricky, because their accents are tough to get at first. After listening for a bit your mind does get a feel for it and translation becomes easier. I really liked the tone of his voice and the energy he put into the read. His pace keeps the story moving, even when it is slow.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and would be interested in reading more from this author. It wasn't a book I would rave about, but I would definitely recommend it as a good read.

Praise to Hayes

I couldn't find any error in the book. Each character is unique and entertaining, the plot is structured into a basic search for mystical item, and there is some good humor.
