really liked it
bookshelves: crime, darker, laugher, suspense
Read in November, 2009

I stuck this book in on my 'crime' bookshelf, but it's not really a true crime novel. But there's a lot of crime that takes place throughout the book. Theft, BnE, AnB, murder, etc. etc.

I've noticed since I've started keeping record in goodreads, I thoroughly enjoy the bad-guy-hero. The invincible character. The funny guy. Sandman Slim is all those characters rolled into one.

Kadrey created a reality that, to me at least, seems totally plausible and utterly ridiculous at the same time. Magic and magicians are real, although that Harry Potter witch and wizard stuff is hooey. Heaven and Hell are on the other side of a door. Beasts and Angels walk the streets with you and I.

The book flows along a river's pace more of the raging variety than lazy. The quick, fresh, and interesting read has me hoping Sandman will make a return soon. Very soon.
