Hing like Garrett PI Fantasy Gigolo I swear he sees action in this book than in all seven of the previous ones combined The 8th Garrett PI novel by Glen Cook and by far my favourite to date against his own wishes and beliefs Garrett finds himself pulled into a conflict unlike any he s faced to date the gods of Tunfaire or two out of the thousand or so sets at least are
annihilation and Garrett become the piggy in the middle between these competing forces to decide which of them survives Garrett for his part does not describe himself as an Atheist or an Agnostic and he certainly wouldn t describe himself as a believer but that he really just doesn t care either way which the gods find a rather odd stance to take but which probably mirrors my own point of view someone like Garrett himself says I thought we had an agreement I don t bother you and you don t bother meUnlike a lot of Urban fantasies which are set in our world where people are very nervous about mentioning religion in any form due to the fact that someone somewhere will take offense at the depiction of their chosen religion being shown one way or the other which in a fantasy novel I dislike to see people take these things so seriously because it is fantasy therefore made up and not to be taken overly seriously where most events whether they cast a positive or negative *light on religion are done to set the tone of a novelI totally would understand peoples concerns if we happened to *on religion are done to set the tone of a novelI totally would understand peoples concerns if we happened to reading a Theological thesis aimed at disproving or discrediting a religion sure we could shoot it down all the way but there s definitely a fear in earth set fantasy novels to explore religion simply due to the nature of how peoples believes prejudice their opinion of a book based on how their religion is depictedNow back to the point I was originally making the fact that Glen Cooks series is an urban based fantasy novel set in a fantasy universe this gives him a lot room to show the negative sides of his cities religions without insulting anyone from the real world his way of doing so heralds back to how pagan religions first got started and how humans perceptions of their gods traits shaped the personalities of said godsOverall the story felt even uicker paced than usual as Garrett didn t seem to get than a uite minute between events to collect his thoughts however the tale was so very well crafted as to not leave you feeling put out by this pacingOverall definitely my favourite entry yet and a must read in the series. The one temple still available When two rival pantheons try to hire Garrett he nows he is in for it. .
Facing Annihilation And Garrett
Wow this one was awesome a lot of fantasy elements here and tons of intense moments It felt a lot like black company at times because of the description of gods and areas I liked the explanation of where the gods came from and what they do The big reveal and climax was a bit hard to follow but i got the gist of it Really loved this one Adeth was disappointing and Morely was being a huge tool in this one though Petty Pewter Gods is the eighth book in the Garrett PI series written by Glen Cook and centered on the adventures of private investigator GarrettWith the sudden end of the war in Cantard TunFaire is *in a state of unrest by returning former *a state of unrest by returning former who are at odds with the half breeds and immigrants who have taken their places in society G I have liked Garrett from the first adventure I took with him but this one did not seem very exciting or interesting The story was alright I guess since it did at least have an awake Dead Man for once he has been asleep for awhile The new characters introduced did not seem very lively or appealing but How Debuggers Work Algorithms Data Structures and Architecture kind of dull and lackluster This was one that I had a hard time getting into and even when I did I justept going because I like Garrett and his bits of sarcasm enough to overlook a weak plot lineGarrett finds himself in the middle of a contest between two groups of gods in Tunefaire The refugees from the Cantard have brought their own pantheon of gods to the Street of Dreams and now one of the existing pantheons is going to have to move out Lucky Garrett he gets to figure who is going to get the last location at the bottom of the street He gets snatched by the Godoroth first and even though HE DOES NOT COMMIT HE GETS does not commit he gets by the Shayir the other pantheon and told he cannot leave until he helps them What can he do but escape and go into hiding He has never been very big on gods in the past and now he can see that they are not anything than a bunch of thugs who just want to be worshipedThis was not the best so far and I have a ways to go but if you want the continuity you have to read it Just An Alien Heat know that there are some truly slow spots But it is still Garrett even if he is not handling a good mystery this time ok I love Garrett I do But this one wasI don tnow ind of nonsensical plus meh It so didnt make a lot of sense and the resolution didnt seem to have a lot to do with Garrett The dead man played a bigger part which was nice to see after last time when he slept through the whole book This book was a lot of Garrett being in. Garet P I is on the case There are some new gods in the town of TunFaire but temple real estate on A bad mood and getting jumped by Godesses I think the author had to have been in a bad *Place When He Wrote This *when he wrote this otherwise like this series and I had been warned this one wasn t too good so I will eep on as I now both Garrett and Cook are capable of a lot better I wasn t that impressed with this one The story is a little wild and doesn t really seem to have a point A lot of things are going on and obviously Garret is in the middle really seem to have a point A lot of things are going on and obviously Garret is in the middle it but it seems to be that he wasn t prevalent to the story It just ind of worked it self out witho My least favorite of the Garrett PI series so far It was a bit hazy on ploteven when all was said and done I still wasn t sure what was going on The whole book seemed to consist of Garrett trying to either 1 get to the Dream uarter or 2 Sneak into his home More Garrett and even Garrett Some rather confusing gods and it comes together with a bang It lost a star for some of the confusion So you Sonic Alchemy: Visionary Music Producers and Their Maverick Recordings know how in every Garrett PI story our detective s character develops in the end He always learns something like don t trust old generals or everyone has their demons like literally Here there s nothing Nothing really changes Things just happenind of randomly and I don t think we as readers that do not possess the mental capacity of the Dead Man can ever think what will happen next and what s the reason behind it allThis is the first book in Garrett PI series that I didn t necessarily enjoy Throughout the whole story I felt like all events happened somewhere around Garrett but not exactly to him or that he had any importance whatsoever There wasn t too much place for any detective work no deductiveinductive skills were ever reuired Garrett just repeatedly got beaten up pretty badly Not my Mapping wild gardens: The symbolic conquest of South Africa (African literatures in English) kind of character developmentAfter all you just end up thinking what the hell has just happened For me there was definitely too much pondering the meaninglessness of religion and not enough Garrett substance we all showed up for As with Deadly uicksilver Lies I didn t start out liking this It s still not my favorite of the Garrett novels but how bad can a book be when Cthulhu has a cameo Cook taps into the same concept that Terry Pratchett and PC Hodgell did to bring us a story about the existence of gods being dependent on human belief in them though the book is less about the philosophical ramifications of that idea and about a melee between two pantheons scrabbling to stay alive I also think that Glen Cook s working title for this book must have been somet. He Street of Dreams is at a premium So the big gods on the block issued a challenge find theey to. .
