Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I gotta be honest. Sometimes this book gave me the feeling that the paint was still wet and the glue wasn't set. Why the five stars, then? Because I actually gave a crap about what happened next, what twisted bit of ultraviolence was about to be smacked down, and what wisecrack was going to be snapped out and by who.
You don't read Sandman Slim to be entered into the Mysteries of Plot. You read Sandman Slim to find out what kind of damage is going to be unleashed by a guy who, after eleven years, crawls out of the bowels of hell and into the arguably worse pit that is L.A. It doesn't have to make sense all the time. It just has to go fast fast fast and leave an exploded, bloody corpse.
