    Anonym bruger: Both these novels are told in first person by men who are not averse to a bit of violence every now and then, and who have a certain attitude towards the universe. Altered Carbon is SF, while Sandman Slim is more of a Supernatural Urban Fantasy.… (mere)

Maybe it's just because I'm currently feeling like warmed-over shit and want to know that somebody else feels gross but reading Stark's nonstop journey into getting the shit kicked out of him turned out to be pretty fun. ( )

This is the first book of a series of (to date) five, centered about James Stark. Stark is a man with some magical abilities who is 'betrayed' by his Circle, and sent to Hell, alive. There he survived eleven years as a sort of gladiator in arena fights for the generals of Lucifer, before finding a way to escape Hell, and returning to Earth. Once back in L.A. (from where he had been taken from, he starts to get revenge on those that caused his exile to Hell. While in the midst of this, other problems come about, getting both Angels and Hellions trying to get him to side with them for a battle against a third party. Without spoiling the story, I can't say much more.

Loved the writing style Kadrey displays. There is some great dark, sarcastic humor and conversational exchanges, and plenty of action. The paranormal aspect is there, without focusing too much on one type. I nice almost gritty noir detective sort of story. I found myself hearing some low, gutteral-gritty voice saying the words in my head as I read ... way cool!! Totally enojoyed the read, and will be reading the whole series!! ( )

I listened to the audiobook at work and it surely did make the day pass easily. This was just fun.

I hope Kadrey does it again. ( )

Not my favorite book ever. Liked the author's style, but I'm not crazy about revenge stories, or cowboy heroes with more power than they know what to do with. So probably not the best book for me to pick up in the first place. ( )

I brought this home pre-booksite cataloging. The old fashioned way of browsing shelves at a book store. I gave it a shot but I'm not so good with witty, tough guy humor and DNF'd it early on. ( )

It's the kind of book where suffering and slim hopes are the reality for almost all the characters, and where goals are not achieved without the kind of sacrifice and revelation that change people's lives forever. And by the standards of that kind of book, Sandman Slim is very, very good indeed.

This is a tightly plotted revenge story that grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go.

I wake up in a pile of smoldering garbage and leaves in the Old Hollywood Forever cemetery behind the Paramount Studio lot on Melrose, though these last details don't come to me until later.

Nothing nice happens to murdered women, except that maybe someone cares about how they got that way.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Metatron's Cube. One of the holiest of holy glyphs. The soul of the angel Metatron, the voice of God. Good for keeping away imps, flesh-eating zombies, and ants at a picnic. It slices. It dices. It has a thousand and one uses. A thousand and two if you draw it on a brick and throw it through the windshield of your ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend's car.
While it's giving me a migraine right now, I think the fact that I'm not an expert on corpse disposal says a lot of good things about me and my life choices.
