A must for fans of 'The Book with No Name'. It's written in the same style, has as much action (or violence, whichever way you want to look at it) and is as funny and fun as the first. It has some returning characters, Dante and Kacy, Peto the Monk, Sanchez and Jessica. And of course the Bourbon Kid. There are werewolves, vampire gangs, vampire cops and a new (or very old) Dark Lord.



It lets you in on some back stories of some of the characters from the first book, as well as some of the charact

The Eye of the Moon by Anonymous is the follow up to The Book with No Name, presumably written by the same author. I read the first novel a couple of years ago and thought it was a fun, easy read that contained some entertaining elements. Based on that, I decided to give the sequel a try.

The story is once again set in the fictional sleazy American border town of Santa Mondega and follows various low lives as they try to get their hands on a magical crystal, the mysteriously monickered The Eye of

Pheeew.. Udah lumayan lama juga saya baca buku pertamanya The Book With No Name.. Waktu itu saya baca terjemahan dari penerbit Kantera, setelah ditunggu2 sequelnya The Eye Of The Moon ini ngga juga terbit jadi ya sudah beli yang bahasa inggrisnya saja.

Setelah baca mungkin akan lebih seru lagi kalo saya baca yang bhs inggrisnya saja dari buku pertama. Banyak banget jokes yang agak ganjil kalo diterjemahin ke bahasa indonesia. Di akhir buku pertama kita akhirnya ngeh kalau Santa Mondega adalah kot

Le premier tome de cette saga m'avait hallucinée. Délibérément provocateur et jubilatoire. Du sang neuf avec des personnages truculents, dangereux. et même si ça partait un peu dans tous les sens, on ne pouvait pas, ne pas y adhérer. Passée l'effet de surprise, je me demandais bien ce que pouvait nous apporter la suite.

Retour à Santa Mondega, une ville inquiétante et qui accueille son florilège de créatures fantastiques. Ce tome nous éclaire sur l'identité et la personnalité du Bourbon Kid avec

Beth wird von den anderen Jugendlichen sträflich schlecht behandelt. Da ihre Stiefmutter sie jahrelang kaum aus dem Haus gelassen hat, war Beth natürlich nicht darauf vorbereitet. Sehr erstaunt war sie, als die Stiefmutter plötzlich beschloss, die Tochter doch zur Highschool zu schicken. Doch was für ein gemeines Spiel der Mutter, Beth in einem Dorothy-Kostüm zum Halloween-Ball zu schicken. Ihre Mitschüler haben nichts Besseres zu tun als sich über Beth lustig zu machen.

Excellent. I agree with most of the other reviewers here - it's a superior book to the first in almost every way... the violence is better, the characters more defined and the humour spot on. Characters who bugged me in the first book have developed and have grown on me.

Great opening chapter - good to see Elvis again!

If you've read the first book and rated it 3 stars plus, you may as well read this - it's a star better than The Book With No Name.

Primero que nada debo decir EUGH. La cantidad de escenas asquerosas y sangrientas que tiene este libro creo que es lo que menos me gusta de él, no es precisamente mi clase de lectura.

Debo admitir que hubo un momento en el que quería dejar de leer el libro porque estaba DEMASIADO aburrido, en mi opinión, pero más o menos a la mitad del libro comenzó a atraparme.

Los quince primeros capítulos me parecieron fundamentales para entender muchas del primer libro y así mismo de este. En cuanto a los acon

The Eye of the Moon is the sequel to The Book With No Name, which I've read a couple of years ago. Ever since, I was completely unaware of this second book (I had no clue it would be turned into a series) until I was adding my books here on BookLikes. I then just walked in to the second and third book of the Bourbon Kid series.

This is the sequel to The Book With No Name, there are many similarities , the extent of violence, the myriad of characters, the pace to name but a few. There are obvious improvements , this time the author has given the semblance of a plot with some characters playing a more central role to the one they played in The Book With No Name. e.g. Dante and others are playing initially a less sensational role e.g. the Bourbon Kid he previously rampaged and killed just for the fun of it but as this nov ...more

Self-aware, straight faced parody can be a good thing. It worked pretty well with this book's predecessor, The Book With No Name: it was funny, well aware of the ridiculousness of the plot and it had engaging characters.

In The Eye of the Moon, the author decided to amp that up. Unfortunatly, it was a badly handled decision, and the plot turned really ridiculous and the characters became cartoony. (Not to mention some really glaring incongruences in continuity, but that's another problem.)

So here were are again, in Santa Mondega! We meet Elvis, Sanchez, the Mystic Lady, Dante & Kacy, the Bourbon Kid, obviously, and other characters again. This books picks up where The Book With No Name ended.
I was eager to get to know whether my questions which TBWNN left me with would be answered. And, damn, it did answer all of them! Mainly the one why tBK drink bourbon and why he is so violent, psycho and so on.
A page turner, you can't put it down! Which is awesome! Each chapter ends with

Le Livre sans Nom m’avait énormément surprise car je ne m’attendais pas à ce que le livre tourne de cette façon et que tant de choses soient dedans. C’est avec grande envie que j’ai commencé ce nouveau livre qui nous en raconte plus sur le passé du Bourbon Kid mais est également la suite du Livre sans Nom. En effet, on commence sur le présent pour faire un bond dans le passé et donc en apprendre sur la "naissance" du Bourbon Kid pour reprendre au final la suite de l’histoire (enfin quelques anné ...more

Mejoró bastante respecto del anterior, El libro sin nombre, por eso puedo darle una estrellita más.

El libro comienza un breve tiempo después de lo sucedido en el anterior, pero luego salta a 18 años antes. Un flashback excelente que nos muestra como en una noche de Halloween, nuestro frío asesino surgió. Vemos, a partir de ésta historia, el lado humano de Kid Bourbon y conocemos a las personas que ama (su hermano y Beth) y las que amó (su madre) Ésta historia me pareció una muy buena incorporaci

And the chaos continues in this second installment of the Bourbon Kid series. This book has more of a "happy ending". The Bourbon Kid is definitely the best badass/good guy I have ever come across while reading novels. A must-read for the people who have the read The Book With No Name. If not,go read the Book With No Name first! The Book With No Name

even more gore, even more blood, even more weird creatures, even more twisted chracters, even more fun and sarcasm... it's simply amazing and funny and i dare to say that i nearly liked it better than the first one.
you also get to read a chapter or two on the bourbon kid's teenage years and why he turned out the way he is. i really liked that because it was very interesting and made me love his character even more than in the first book. in the first book i wouldn't really mind if he died but i

Santa Mondega es un lugar donde no entiendo como la gente puede llegar a vivir. Vale que puedas haber nacido ahí, vale que no tengas ningun medio para salir caminando y dirigirte a otra ciudad... ¿pero por que estúpida razón alguien quiere regresar a ese lugar para celebrar una boda? A no ser que te llames Dante y seas terriblemente estúpido.

Esta segunda parte del "libro de sin nombre" continua con un ritmo trepidante e historias que se entralazan a cada instante, en una conjura de poderes y mal

Höreindruck

Die Stimme des Sprechers und die Art und Weise wie er sie einsetzte war wirklich sehr illustrierend. Meist rau und charakteristisch. Ein harter Klang für eine harte Welt.

Die Geschichte war ser skuriel und sterotyp. Für mich sogar etwas zu sehr. Es gab einige Ironie zB im Person eines fluchenden Pharrers. Allerdings muss man dem Autoren lassen - er strickt das Ende, dass einem am besten gefällt.

I thought this was a decent follow up to The Book With No Name. I felt like it was more of the same and although it took some bold choices in regards to who lives and dies, I didn't think it did enough to hook you. I felt all the 'hip' stuff got a bit much the more I read and the film refrences just fall flat. Like an unfunny joke. I don't like to tear anyone down, more so after I found out these books were slef published, but I it read like a fan fiction at times. By that I mean, the writer isn ...more

Même si j'adore cette série, ce tome n'était pas un grand coup de cœur comme il l'était le premier tome. J'ai adoré retrouver le Bourbon Kid et tous les personnages, me retrouver dans l'atmosphère bizarre et sinistre de Santa Mondega et la touche d'humeur qui me fait sourire même au milieu des massacres et tueries, mais le fait que dans ce tome est révélée l'identité du Bourbon Kid et son histoire m'a déplu puisque ça lui a ôté un peu de charme auquel j'ai succombé dans le premier tome l, aussi, ...more

This book was ridiculous. Slapstick violence throughout, although some of it was very funny. I was describing a scene where one of the “baddies” (I’ve put baddies in quotes because nearly everyone was a baddie in this book) gets shot up in a lift and my son James (6) who shouldn’t have been listening found it hilarious. The first book “The Book With No Name” was much better, and if you remember my review of that I wondered how the book could continue to a second novel when everyone in the first ...more

Seems like the body count was even higher here than in The Book With No Name. It was still a fascinating story, but didn't seem quite as well thought out. The author tried to give Bourbon Kid a motivation here, whereas in the first book, it was just the way he was - which actually was more in the spirit of the book.

I still really enjoyed it though, and had a very difficult time putting it down. It's wacky enough to appeal to my sense of the absurd, and only occasionally had me wincing from the g

I absolutely love the Bourbon Kid series. Whilst I didn't find the Eye of the Moon as gory and exciting as the Book with No Name it is certainly worth the read.
The sequel begins with giving us a back story to the Bourbon Kid, which is just as gruesome (and slightly heartbreaking) as the present story. We are then thrown in to the battle for the Eye of the Moon, with the surviving characters from the first book joining us along the way.

Suite du Livre sans nom. Très intéressant, encore une fois captivant, quoique plutôt ou même très violent. Les bains de sang et les massacres sont plus fréquent que dans le premier tome. Mais un retour 18 ans auparavant nous permet de mieux connaître le Bourbon Kid. À la fin du livre, il est écrit que la suite paraîtra en français en juin 2011. Nous sommes en juin 2011 alors j'ai hâte que la bibliothèque en fasse l'acquisition :-)

Well, Mr Anonymous has done it again! This fantastic follow-up to the The Book With No Name sees The Bourbon Kid make a triumphant return to form in this bloody, violent, brutal, and hilarious dark comedy. I was hoping for more of the same and this book duly delivered!
