Fruitbasket from Hell
Alex Cheradon is a PI. He tries to stay off paranormal cases vampires and the like , but they seem to find him anyway. His latest case offers him a new twist on Hell on Earth as he's hired to track down the whereabouts of Nevada Raines, daughter of the computer billionaire, Steven Raines. After a run-in with a bloodthirsty vampire, Alex is glad to have a case that put a million dollars immediately in his pocket and wasn't likely to involve the undead.
Unfortunately, there's just the little matt Alex Cheradon is a PI. Unfortunately, there's just the little matter of the Satanist cult, a vampire nest, and a little visitor named "Pookie" to contend with. If Alex can stay alive long enough, he just may save the world. With a certain quirkiness reminiscent of Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series, Jason Krumbine has created a bizarre cast of characters: Alex, the Private Investigator who manages to stumble through cases by pure luck, Nicky, the metrosexual secretary who is more interested in clothing choices than cases, Christian, the not-quite-alive ex-partner who seems hell-bent on killing Alex well, it's not Christian's idea, it's those pesky voices , Angie, the ex who gets hired to be Alex's bodyguard but just may want to kill him herself, and all the wacky clients who hire Alex under false pretenses.
The plot is a frenzied and outlandish race as Alex tries to find Nevada in time to save the world from Pookie. Written like a rambling from someone's brain complete with frequent and extensive parenthetical comments , the writing style is quirky and somewhat fun at first, but begins to become somewhat grating towards the end. It's difficult to judge the writing style, as the run-on sentences, sentence fragments and oddly formatted sentence structures seem to be created by design, not accident.
Fruitbasket from Hell by Jason Krumbine
It's a quick, amusing read, but a bit like being in the brain of someone with an attention disorder. Slightly out of context, there are a few comments that come off as simply racist.

I couldn't quite figure out if they were meant to be funny, but they just seemed out of place. Just compelling enough to keep you reading, "Fruitbasket from Hell" a quick and goofy ride through someone's subconscious. Apr 23, Sandy Lender rated it really liked it. There are vampires, a scorned ex-girlfriend-vampire-huntress, an interior-decorating-minded sidekick, some demons, some able-to-come-back-to-life bad guys, and some normal cops all messing up this guy's life.
I can't believe there's a happy ending. Now, I've got to make this one caveat But if those typos take you out of the story, you'll be disappointed. If you can overlook that sort of thing, you will LOVE this book.
A Man By Any Other Name Is Somebody Else Altogether: The Complete Alex Cheradon Volume One
Vampires showing up when you least expect it, grenades going off when they shouldn't, covens where you thought it was safe, and just all-around mayhem abound. Aug 23, Drew Davis rated it did not like it. First of all the concept of the book is great.
However, the author really needs to check himself on the racial front. If there is an African American in the scene he says something derogatory about them. On another note he should really pay for someone to edit his books for grammatical errors. As long as you don't read carefully with one eye closed the errors don't interfere with the story.
In all for the 99 cents I paid for it not bad, but not good. I hope my 99 cents goes towards the author's First of all the concept of the book is great. I hope my 99 cents goes towards the author's fund for racial tolerance classes and an editor. Lastly, I got this book from bn because the caption said "for fans of Jasper Fforde and Terry Pratchett". I have not read any Pratchett, but I have read every Fforde book and he is a master of the English language and compelling story this guy is not!
From the synopsis it looked like it would be similar to The Dresden Files. A private detective investigates paranormal cases and chaos ensues. But I was disappointed with the w Reading Challenge - A book with nonhuman characters - A funny book - A book with bad reviews my own, see below - A book with magic - A book by an author you've never read before I started this book because I thought I came out this year, but it didn't, it was just republished on the Nook or something like that this year.
But I was disappointed with the writing and I felt that the characters were a bit slow. I will not be reading the rest of the series. Sep 06, Karen rated it really liked it. Alex Cheradon may be the worst PI ever and may not know when sarcasm is appropriate but he eventually solved the case. Kept me interested and made me laugh out loud several times.
