Gangsters, witches and a deal with the devil...how can I say no?
First of all I think it's so cool that a father and son wrote this together. It's cool that they are close enough to write together because I don't know anyone I would be able to write with. So Kudos to this father and son writing duo for a job well done.
I have never read a book quite like this one before, it had so much in it that I've never really thought about reading. Like gangsters; I enjoy Bonnie and Clyde things but I've never considered sitting down and reading a book dealing with gangsters. It worked well for this book though and helped open my eyes to new things.
It was full of funny and witty lines! It was a good balance of funny with the whole scary myth thing. It was quick once I got into it. Sadly, it did take me a little while to get into it, I think I just had to get used to their style of writing. But once it captured my interest I was hooked.
It had a lot of fantasy, which I'm a sucker for. I never thought I would read a book that not only had gangsters in it but also witches, there is truly a first for everything. And I'll probably think twice before I stand under an oak tree ever again. (Must read to find out why) I thought the ending was fitting for the book, I can't think of a better way for it to end. Which is odd for me because I usually have a handful of alternate endings in mind.
