Reviews of novels by Robert Asprin, Simon Lewis, Joe Quirk
Book reviews from December 1999
I scribbled down my thoughts on some note that got lost before I typed it in. This is #3 in Asprins' Myth-series. Aahz birthday is coming up. Tania(?) has find the perfect gift and drags Skeeve into several adventures, among others a quite unusual game of football. If you enjoy the other mythbooks, you'll probably like this one, not better nor worse than any of the others.
In this novel you'll follow three different persons that for different reasons are on the run. A good novel, it has nothing to do with the movie "Go" (great movie), many ppl seems to think that when they spot the book. I scribbled down more stuff on some piece of paper that probably is living a miserable life at some dump now.
A hacking rollerblade courier named Chet goes down the streets of San Francisco with lethal speed, just to earn those extra bucks. One day he gets a pay-raise and a package to deliver within a near-impossible timeframe. When these unusual packages becomes more frequent, Chet wonders what the packages might contain. Mix rollerblade, skate punks, cybercrime and a bunch of bad guys and you get this; Joe Quirks' debut novel. Overall a good book, some parts are a bit uneven but one can live with that.
