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

Der 2. Band setzt ein Jahr nach den Ereignissen aus "Das Buch ohne Namen" an. Viele Charaktere, die den Leser schon im ersten Teil begleitet haben, tauchen auch hier wieder auf. Da wäre zum einen der feige Barmann Sanchez, der letzte Mönch von Hubal Peto, Dante & Kacy und, natürlich, Bourbon Kid.
Im "Buch ohne Staben" geht es vornehmlich um die Geschichte des Bourbon Kid und was ihn eigentlich zu diesen ganzen blutigen Massakern, die er in grausamer Regelmäßigkeit veranstaltet, treibt.

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.

Es la segunda vez que leo este libro y no sé si me arrepiento de haberlo hecho o no.

El ojo de la luna es la segunda parte de una saga de cuatro libro llamado Kid Bourbon, en la que se relatan hechos de lo más macabros, sangrientos y asquerosos; todo eso con la participación de vampiros, hombres lobos, momias que despiertan de la muerte, un ángel de la muerte y varios humanos.

La verdad es que no está del todo mal, una lectura que engancha desde la primera hoja hasta la última.

Trilogia muuttuu, jos ei enää verisemmäksi niin ainakin herkullisemmaksi. Kirjailijalla (liekö yksi vai useampi) on oivallinen kyky pitää juonenpyöritys hallussa ja paljastaa käänteitä pikkuhiljaa. Lukijana vain oivaltaa jonkin aiemman yksityiskohdan, "ai tuohon se liittyikin!"
Mutta pirusti tässä on henkilöitä, ihan täytyy keskittyä ja muistella, ettei tipu kyydistä.

El Ojo de la Luna es la segunda parte de la saga de Kid Bourbon, el despiadado y misterioso asesino de Santa Mondega.
En este libro nos encontramos con momentos de flashbacks al principio, donde vamos descubriendo partes del pasado de Kid Bourbon, conocemos su historia y de otros personajes que empiezan a formar parte de esta historia.
Después de un salto del tiempo a la actualidad nos encontramos en la misma parte donde quedamos en el libro uno: todos quieren el Ojo de la Luna pero pocos saben do

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.

Ces livres sont des petites pépites, je vous jure. C'est tellement n'importe quoi que c'en est parfois risible, mais c'est trop bon.
Ce livre, c'est comme un bon film de Quentin Tarantino. C'est n'importe quoi, c'est vulgaire, c'est (ultra) sanglant et gore, mais c'est génial.
L'histoire elle-même est géniale. Des vampires, des loups-garous, des momies, des chasseurs de créatures du mal ... En soi, c'est très basique et déjà vu et revu ... Mais c'est écrit d'une telle manière ! J'adore.

Super Buch! An einigen Stellen vielleicht ziemlich brutal, aber dennoch eine gute Geschichte wie ich finde. Besonders die paar plötzlichen Wendungen fand ich sehr spannend und aufregend.
Der zweite Teil der Reihe hat mich nicht enttäuscht. Ich bin gespannt, wie der dritte ist!

Omg, omg, omg. Espectacular, estou sem palavras para este livro, quando pensava k tinha acabado de uma maneira muito má, dá uma reviravolta de deixar uma pessoa de boca aberta. Vou procurar a ver se há continuação, mal posso esperar para ver se o bourbon kid tem mais aventuras.

A la fois moins bordélique (peut être parce qu'il y a moins de personnages ou qu'en connait certains), plus drôle et plus intéressant que le premier tome, j'ai bien aimé.

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.

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

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

Fazit

Nein, wir sind immer noch nicht in einer Romanze, weshalb mir das auch gar nicht gefiel. Gerockt haben stattdessen Dante und Kacy als Paar. Auch wenn dat Mädel schon mal mehr auf Zack war. Die Vögel schießt regelmäßig Sanchez ab, dessen Bar nach wie vor Hauptschauplatz bleibt, denn alles was dort passiert, scheint auf einer riesigen Achse der Möglichkeiten zu liegen, ich nenn es mal Fixpunkt. Der „dickhäutige Servierer dubioser Drinks“ bleibt das Herzstück der Serie, da

Dado que el primer libro me lo recomendó una amiga que ni siquiera lo había leído, no sabía que El Libro sin nombre era el comienzo de una saga, así que el descubrimiento de esta segunda parte me sorprendió, aunque eso explicaría porque muchas tramas quedaron abiertas (eso no me hizo ruido ya que el libro era muy bizarro). Si noté que el primer libro estaba lleno de muerte, sangre, viseras y mucho sadismo, este lo duplica, y en cada libro es peor, tiene muertes en casi todos los capítulos (Desta ...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.)

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

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

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 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.

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
