    You know those crime movies you stumble upon late at night? The ones that were made (you assume) somewhere in the late 1990s? There's lots of action, backstabbing, double crossing, and sex? It's the movies that usually star some B actors you see everywhere but can't name. You know the type. The ones that aren't art films or heavy-handed attempts at making a "serious" film but rather fun crime romps through the desert, through Mexico, in and out of dangerous situations? Sexy women, strong men, st...more

    Innovative. Weird. Captivating. In this experimental novel, John Edward Lawson gives us an anti-hero in Kenrick Brimley. With smart dialog, dark humor, and a unique concept, Last Burn in Hell definitely stays with you after the first read.

    A decent debut novel... errr movie... by John Edward Lawson that will be sure to entertain you along the way. Lots of interesting characters who all have something to hide.

    But I wasn't completely satisfied.

    The novel progresses in a linear fashion until the end when we get a flashback, leaving you in the dark about the details of the narrators past until the very end. When things finally get revealed, I still felt in the dark about some things, especially Leena's motives.

    The novel lacks the bru...more

    Recommends it for: bizarros, fans of vonnegut
    A hilarious tongue-in-cheek (or maybe teeth?) escapade that escalates to riotous proportions. The improbable happens and even if you don't believe it, Lawson will make you want to.

    Note: I edited this book.

    So this is one of those books where you say, it wasn't at all what I expected but then you can't really remember what you expected. It was strange and the first chapter or so was really surreal and hard to follow but eventually it evened out.

    I can't say the story's plot was all that exciting but it was a fairly enjoyable read. I liked the rap parts, they were hilarious and all the pop culture references. The swiming thing was kind of strange. I couldn't tell if it was there because the author wa...more
