From Robert Brockway, Sr. Editor and Columnist of Cracked.com, comes The Unnoticeables, a funny and frightening urban fantasy. There are angels, and they are not beneficent or loving. But they do watch over us. They watch our lives unfold, analyzing us for repeating patterns and redundancies. When they find them, the angels simplify those patterns and remove the redundancies, and the problem that is "you" gets solved. Carey doesn't much like that idea. As a punk living in New York City, 1977, Carey is sick and tired of watching strange kids with unnoticeable faces abduct his friends. He doesn't care about the rumors of tar-monsters in the sewers or unkillable psychopaths invading the punk scene--all he wants is to drink cheap beer and dispense ass-kickings. Kaitlyn isn't sure what she's doing with her life. She came to Hollywood in 2013 to be a stunt woman, but last night a former teen heartthrob tried to eat her, her best friend has just gone missing, and there's an angel outside her apartment. Whatever she plans on doing with her life, it should probably happen in the few remaining minutes she has left. There are angels. There are demons. They are the same thing. It's up to Carey and Kaitlyn to stop them. The survival of the human race is in their hands. We are, all of us, well and truly screwed.… (mere)

I had a lot of fun with this one. Likely due to all the low-class humour that runs right up my alley. But then again, what do you expect from late-70s NY punks, hyper-intelligent homeless people, and out-of-work California stuntwoman who tends bar on her downtime?

There's an awful lot packed between these covers, with several different species of monster villains, but there's also a rich cast of characters that, while occasionally a little too similar, are also just kind of fun to be around.

I think what make this one more fun for me was the fact that Carey, the main character, is damn near a doppelganger of a really good friend of mine. Definitely pushing this series his way. ( )

bizarre, funny, not as good as This Book is Full of Spiders ( )

When a book starts as strongly as this one did, with a story that’s attention-grabbing from page one, the disappointment for its failed promises hurts twice as much: this is what happened to me with The Unnoticeables, whose narrative arc… imploded (for want of a better word) two thirds of the way in.

The story runs on two different time tracks, separated by 36 years: Carey, living in New York in 1977, is a young man reveling in the time’s punk scene, spending his days getting drunk, stoned – or both – and generally causing any kind of mayhem he can think of; Kaitlyn lives in Los Angeles, in 2013, as a part-time stuntwoman, part-time waitress trying, and so far failing, to bring her stunt work to the next level [...]

Just fucking no. It is probably just me because I just finished a perfect book, I'm jonesing for another, and this the second I've dropped almost immediately. This and the other seem like decent books, but just fucking no. Here's where I started to be like mmmno, "Two teen girls stood by a busted-open newspaper machine, drinking something distinctly beer-colored out of a Coke bottle. Too cute to be part of the scene. Aw, look, they did their mascara up all thick. Punk rock. 'If you gimme a cigarette, I might consider letting you suck my dick,' I told the blond one with the patches on her denim jacket."
It goes on like this. It seems like it might be funny in a Beavis and Butthead sort of way, or if like 4Chan morphed into a single person and wrote a book.
