If you ever thought that a collaboration between three authors might be a dodgy, even risky, enterprise, think again. Put three gifted, funny, witty, and clever authors together, and you get an utter gem of a book.
There’s a clue in the title – it is a baaaaad book; it’s rollicking good fun and laugh-out-loud hilarious. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Our hero, Case, is – well, he’s really just your typical, run-of-the-mill hitch-hiker of literary genres and he glides from one to the other, hopefully, optimistically, sometimes painfully, and he finds himself traversing horror, sci-fi, and westerns, to name but a few, always cheekily, saucily and a little bit tongue-in-cheek. To say you’ll get mouth-ache from a permanent grin on your face is an understatement of an understatement.
Brooks, Hise and Mader complement each other to a tee and bring to the table their individual brand of humour, satire, and whimsicality and seamlessly braid their talents into a masterpiece.
Case tickled my fancy from start to finish and the end of the book came with disappointment. Where was I going to get my permagrin from now?
Excellent – highly recommended
