it was amazing
Read from April 05 to July 31, 2012

After a few days reading on and off...and I can honestly say that this book will leave just about anyone in a complete daze of giggles and deep metaphysical thought. It's the oddest mix I've ever seen, but so far, I take my hat off to the man from Fort Worth.

Mr. Martinez, you are a genius.

From whacking monsters with a rolled up magazine and training them like dogs to keeping a radioactive future at bay by fixing the boiler in her apartment building, Diana leads a much more interesting life than she might otherwise wish for. And that's before you get to the doomsday cult that worships eldritch horrors and is attempting to turn reality inside out and annihilate every living thing in the name of...whatever.

Cult leaders with bad tans, monsters with epic names like Vom the Hungering, giant insects, a dog with a tentacle tail, and why coats are okay but not great enough to kill for...it's all here.

Final assessment: The most fun I've had reading a book in probably the last ten years.
