I think I've got what I don't like - there's a middle-class smugness to the narrator that grates. In the hands of someone like Neil Gaiman it could work - Neverwhere , for example - or even Hugh Grant, but here he's too smug, too stupid to work for me. There's a comedian who once created a character called "Tim Nice-but-Dim" and the narrator rather reminds me of him though not so nice, admittedly :.
Suitable for a wide readership, from teenage upwards. There is also an abundance of really bad puns early in the book. Furious, Quill pursues the investigation, co-opting intelligence analyst Lisa Ross and undercover cops Costain and Sefton. Then his prize suspect, Rob Toshack, is murdered in custody. However, Andy soon finds her wonderful cooking compensates for her eccentricities. Simon A, Reviewer. How It Works.
Hobbit , Feb 18, I expect to finish it tonight and I guess I will try 2 as Hobbs is a very interesting character as is Mrs Goodfellow and I want to know more about them. Windshadow , Feb 18, Thanks for the update, Windy. I might try it again at some point, if it improves as you say.
Of course, other books can sometimes improve as a series goes along. But I suspect I might not be in any rush here. Andy soon finds himself immersed in a world where not everyone is human, and a late-night visit to a churchyard nearly results in grave consequences, and a ghoulish outcome.
An accidental fire leads to Andy having to doss in Hobbes's spare room. Contending with a wave of murder, suicide and robbery, as well as Hobbes's weirdness, is the just the start; he must also get to grips with Mrs Goodfellow, Hobbes's housekeeper, who collects teeth. Although they are mostly from humans, she also claims to have some vampire specimens.
However, Andy soon finds her wonderful cooking compensates for her eccentricities. Despite Andy believing he is coping, he is nearly unhinged by horror when a stressed Hobbes's concealed nature reveals itself in an orgy of bone-crunching. Yet, coming through unscathed, Andy develops respect and admiration for his host, even when he uses weird, occasionally brutal, methods to begin unravelling the mystery, which would appear to link The Order of the Dragon and Vlad Tepes, the original Dracula, to the crime wave. When Hobbes goes missing, Andy, with the dubious assistance of Dregs, Hobbes's big, bad dog, and armed with a leg of lamb, searches for him.
Will he triumph over crazed blood lust and human sacrifice?
Can Andy with Hobbes's friends, a binge-drinking dwarf and a troll who looks uncannily human, save the day? And can Andy catch vampirism from false teeth?
