What did you like best about Ghost of a Chance? What did you like least?
I have loved Greens books so much, that I feel like I'm betraying a friend by saying this. But this book didn't work. I don't even know where it went wrong. Maybe it's because I'm spoiled by John Taylor and Eddie Drood. But I gave this book more chances than it deserved. After I had lost interest, I still put-on my headphones, rewound and tried to find interest. It just wasn't there. It felt like recycled second rate monsters and second rate talent.
I don't think I even got half way through the book. If you've never read his other works, it may work. Then you can graduate up and be blown away.

I like Simon Green's work for two reasons -- first, they're silly and second they're British. This new series seems is pretty similar to the Nightside series, same author voice, same phrasings, same random inclusion of highly unlikely characters and plot directions. I'll probably keep reading it, provided the prices don't get too high. Green appeals to my sense of fun, although I wish he'd drop some of his over-used phrasings. "It was the easiest thing in the world" comes immediately to mind.
