really liked it

This is one of my if not my absolute favorite book series'. Reading a Sandman Slim novel always feels like a comfy old sweater. It always feels so familiar, but as always it was something new this time as well. This is the last but one installment in the series and it shows too, as the author starts to wrap up the story. Still, it is very witty, very badass, and fast-paced. Other times a true emotional roller coaster. Anyhow a real page-turner. I recommend it to absolutely everyone.
