sf short story / Thief saves suicide. a Name that Book (novembre 2011)

Ressenyes

The first book felt a little dated and had a few too many puns for me. Having said that there were some genuinely funny and touching moments. I will be reading the next book. When it was good for me, it was really good. I can put up with a few more puns.

This will be it for me and Callahan. Some of the stories are great but not enough to keep going.

The Callahan's family stories have been enormous fun... so much so they've attained FANdom (though hotel management has been unamused with events (possibly) related to Callahan's fans attendance at events like DragonCon).
That said, I have to regretfully recommend a pass on this book... it's a recap collection of the most memorable moments from the series? Well that's an oxymoron rather than a pun, which is likely how it slipped past ol Spidey.

Definitely read the other books though!… (més)

Characters that can bend time and space have trouble dealing with earthbound gangsters and bureaucrats?
