    Thanks for your feedback!

    Having read and been gripped by the first entry in the Bobby Dollar series, and being a big fan of Tad Williams' work, I was looking forward to this second instalment. I was left feeling slightly disappointed however. While I understand that for the sake of the plot hell was going to be a pretty bad place to be; for the most part the book was not as enjoyable as the previous work. It had a couple of hilarious moments, but that was it, just a couple - the sense of humour present in book 1 just wasn't there, and the humour and laugh out loud moments is one of the main attractions of this series I feel. By the time I had finished, I was not left with a sense of catharsis, rather a sense of un-fulfillment at the end of this journey. Granted that's probably how Bobby's feeling too (it's not the end of the series - not by a long shot!). However, at least by the end of book one, there were a couple of mysteries solved, deepened, or there were new questions. Nevertheless, Tad Williams is a great writer, and I do enjoy the premise and the style of narration of this series. If you liked the first book, then you have to read this one - you've gotta take this journey with Bobby, even though I've marked it down a little. I look forward to the next book - but hopefully next time we can recapture the heights of storytelling in The Dirty Streets of Heaven!
