Many of the books I review were FREE in exchange for an honest review. I do not get paid to review them. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as ADs. They are promoting books but I do NOT get any money or goods for posting Spotlights.

The Everything Box by Richard Kadrey

This ranks up there as one of the stranger books I have read and I have read a lot of books.  This is a bizarre mix of Dresden files and Hitchhiker Guide with a leavening of Stainless Steel Rat humor.   A magically immune crook who is ratted out by a colleague ends up saving the world is the premise of the book.

There is a little bit of something for everyone in this book.  Angels of all types, demons, ancient gods, vampires and assorted paranormal freaks and wackos pop up all over the place.   The humor is satirically over the top!   It is almost but not quite so pushy with the humor to turn you off but the author worked way to hard to make it funny. 

It was still an entertaining book and I recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
