    Inhuman Bundle

    A great read that is a mixture of suspense/fantasy/comedy. Good plots with enough happening to keep the reader interested and sprinkled throughout with corny tongue in cheek one liners. Very enjoyable and a real bargain ehen bought as the Bundle.

    Quirky mystery, with added comedic incidents

    Writing comedy is difficult - more so when one is doing so in a genre that might be regarded as 'serious'. Pratchett managed it, famously - and Gaiman seems able to do so as well; I have found other names less enjoyable (Douglas Adams, for one). I started this tome with the sinking feeling that it was more likely to be Adams rather than Pratchett but I was pleasantly surprised. As the athor worked his way into the writing he became funnier - in a slightly offhand way the puns (and there are a lot of them) are not trowelled in and in fact sveral require some afterthought. It helps that the somewhat inept protagonist (Andy Caplet) is both clumsy as well as inept - and for a putative journalist (read: failed) is not overly felicitous with his explanations when he is busy making a mess of things. He also has a tendency to take things at face value - which allows the essentially serious Inspector Hobbes to spin the most outrageous tales which Andy laps up, initially. Eventually he works out that Hobbes is winding him up - or is he? Why do supernatural beings (ghouls, vampires, werewolves - and werepanthers!) seem to be so common in Sorenchester? How long will Hobbes allow Andy to live in his house where he is fêted by an eccentric housekeeper (but an excellent cook) and tolerated by the dog Dregs? Over the three novels in this collection Andy grows (and matures) as the author masters his craft. A splendid start to the series.

    LOVED IT. TRANSMOGRIFY. BRILLIANT.

    What a wonderful surprise. I couldn't put it down. The writing made me feel like I was there. I was drawn in from the first page. THANK YOU.

    Inhuman fun

    A classic odd couple style mystery but with a host of inhuman characters. The rather unlucky and initially unliveable Andy rapidly develops into an endearing but disaster attracting side kick for the mysterious Hobbes.
