The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny: This series has lost it

I just don’t even want to spend the effort to write a real review of this book. The NIGHTSIDE series, which started out so well, has become a joke. With each recent installment, Green repeats the same formula used before. Even the same words! For details, please see my reviews of the previous two novels, The Unnatural Inquirer and Just Another Judgement Day. Honestly, I wouldn’t have even picked up The Good, the Bad, and the Uncanny if I hadn’t already purchased it (and the rest of the novels) when it was on sale at Audible. That’ll teach me. The audio production and narration by Marc Vietor is excellent, though.

She loves beautiful language and has no patience for dull prose, vapid romance, or cheesy dialogue. She prefers complex characterization, intriguing plots, and plenty of action. Favorite authors are Jack Vance, Robin Hobb, Kage Baker, William Gibson, Gene Wolfe, Richard Matheson, and C.S. Lewis.
