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.

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.

Loved it yet another brilliant story from Drew Hayes I would recommend this along with his other titles
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.
