Great Story, but performance could be better
Yes. The story is original, and although the narration starts out rough it gets much better.
Caeser. He was absolutely hilarious.
Bright, expressive, at some moments grating
I laughed throughout most of the book, but there was a part that made me bawl like a little girl.
I don't have anything to compare this to because it's that unique. There's a bit of obscure mythology mixed in with a solid story base. It's not high brow, but not everything has to be. It's fun. I wouldn't recommend this for children, though.
Very entertaining dark comedy
Yes, very entertaining characters and original storyline.
What started out as a what seemed to be slightly formulaic turned into a very well told story that made me laugh, but still had enough emotion and heart to win me over.
The character Emily is voiced very well.
The narrator seems to stumble through the beginning but finds her place and does a good job of telling the story. The story might be rather offensive to some, but I enjoyed it for its dark humor while managing to tell an original and engaging story with some very human and touching elements and well written action scenes.
