Soodespite my prolonged absence from GR I m not dead And to celebrate that fact this is my first review in awhile I wish it could have been a slightly positive review but The Occult Detector (The Semi Dual Stories Book 1) one takes the cardsne s been dealt I guessI picked this book because I m a big fan f authors Jasper Fforde and at times Christopher Moore I include them in the same list because their books tend to have very irreverent attitudes yet somehow manage to wallop you with actual plot and character developments at the end and I d hoped that Kazimer might be a fledgling version f Fforde Pioneer Jews: A New Life in the Far West or Moore Unfortunatelyno not really First a good thing the humor in this big is present in a big way For the first thirdf the book I found myself laughing Eating Thin for Life: Food Secrets Recipes from People Who Have Lost Weight Kept It Off out loud Our protagonist RJ wasnce an evil villain but has since been removed from the villainous union and is cursed to be nice until he can get his life back n track Asia is his love interest who naturally is the smoking hot ugly step sister f Cinderella Was her killer lurking somewhere I smiled at the thought remembering the joy We, the People of lurking Ah the goodld villainous daysThe problem though is that the same Single old jokes keep getting repeated RJ is emasculated Asia is kindf evil but RJ thinks it s hot Pamela Hans Christian Anderson yadda yadda yadda About halfway through I stopped laughing ut loud and started waiting for the plot to start up And that s the kicker about this book unlike Fforde r even Moore the humor is the main event The plot s certainly not going to keep you there since it s basically a series f events tied very loosely together that don t make a lot f sense And God knows the characters aren t enough to keep you invested since they re all about as deep as a drinking fountain This is definitely not a book for people who are easily ffended by cheap jokes r lazy writing since it has both I like to think I went into this book with a fairly pen mind after all it s clearly labeled as Fked Up Fairytales but this book s portrayal f women set my teeth Showa, 1939-1944: A History of Japan on edge a couplef times The reader is constantly reminded that Asia is fat but RJ still finds her hot How selfless The Book Of The Superiority Of Dogs Over Many Of Those Who Wear Clothes of him Atne point we re told Asia weighs 150 lbs Apparently it s a miracle I m able to get ut f bed in the morning since I think I weigh than that Asia is probably the closest thing to a positive female role model the book s got but considering that she s constantly agonizing Rescuing a Werewolf over her weight for the entire book I m using the term looselyBasically to sum things up this book can be good for a distraction but not unlike the sun if you look at it too long your head will explode Or something Review Courtesyf Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty A raunchy mix

M The writing is very circular taking the same themes and re running them The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects over andver The word villain is used about 100 times too many Villain Union Villain Code Villainous clothes Villainous impotence Yes we get it he s a bad guy forced to be the hero Wonderful now move n The ne good thing about the story was that it did keep me guessing I like the murder mystery type story because I like to be challenged to figure One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones out the who done it And this story challenged that for me I went back and forth between suspects right along with RJ never really having an clear ideaf the culprit However part Just Joking of me wonders if that is because the Author didn t know who the real

favorite It s lust at first sight for RJ and many hilarious and adorable and weird encounters follow Asia herself was a bit f a mystery I liked her but I didn t feel like I knew her well Anything I want to say about her involves spoilers somoving nThe mystery is the central focus and the part that dissapoints me a bit It had a great flow leaving you hints here doubts there I was all ready to be shocked in the end by this therwise utrageous novel But then it rather justfizzled Over 200 pages The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais of mystery and we get this short little scene about what happened and why It just didn t feel complete and wasn t a deservingr conclusive end to this bizarre and hilarious novel Now with that said I m talking about the main mystery Not thetwist which I so wasn t expecting So that cheered me up a bitSo I enjoyed the hell ut f this novel verall I ve been sick and in a funk and I just needed something silly and well written and light and goofy and THIS

damageJA Kazimer tried so very hard to be witty and raunchy but I found myself rolling my eyes any time RJ and Asia were alone The sexy scenes read like cheap Janet Evanovich and I actually like her Stephanie Plum series Make no mistake the story is pretty decent but I give thisnly American Studio Ceramics: Innovation and Identity, 1940 to 1979 one star because partsf it were SO BAD If I were a freshman in high school maybe I d be appreciative McNally's Risk of Kazimer s colorful metaphors and awkward descriptions but as a 23 yearld they seem tacky and juvenile in a way If you re looking for a laugh and a light read sure Kazimer s Curses will do I d take Christopher Moore Slaves of New York or yes even Janet Evanovichver this gem any day There are better laughs and better sex elsewhere. Y try to kill their spouses and RJ is drawn to Asia’s violent nature Juvenile glee drips from the twee and faux shocking allusions to sex toys foot fetishes and transsexuality and the gratuitous pop culture references are already somewhat dated leaving this clumsy romp notably lacking in redeeming featur.
