The Everything Box by Richard Kadrey - Read Online

Enter the agent code named Watson. Alexander Grant is a little too good at a few too many things. Two dozen martial arts. Twice that many languages. Chess, the piano, sports, forging excused absences, you name it. He graduated high school top of his class Of course, no one knows any of this Nobody knows the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas like Daniel Faust, a sorcerer for hire and ex-gangster who uses black magic and bullets to solve his clients' problems.

When an old man comes seeking vengeance for his murdered granddaughter, what looks like a simple job quickly spirals out of control. Soon Daniel stands in the crossfire between a murderous porn director; a corrupt cop with a quick trigger finger; and his own former employer, a racket boss who isn't entirely human. A teenage genius with a big imagination, Wally just moved to Savannah, GA from Maine with his mom, who adopted Wally when he was an infant.

In this charming and sweet solo show, Wally investigates a hiccup in the spacetime fabric of his neighborhood which is causing a number of strange events and occurrences. After her father's funeral, Zoe moved to the big city with her mother to start over. But change always brings trials, and life in the city is not so easy.

Money is tight, and Zoe's only escape, as has always been the case, is in her dreams - a world apart from her troubled real life where she can spend time with her closest companion: her lost brother, Valentine. From best-selling author Neal Stephenson and critically acclaimed historical and contemporary commercial novelist Nicole Galland comes a captivating and complex near-future thriller combining history, science, magic, mystery, intrigue, and adventure that questions the very foundations of the modern world. Reminiscent of the edgy, offbeat humor of Chris Moore and Matt Ruff, the first entry in a whimsical, fast-paced supernatural series from the New York Times best-selling author of the Sandman Slim novels - a dark and humorous story involving a doomsday gizmo, a horde of baddies determined to possess its power, and a clever thief who must steal it back It's 22, BC.

A beautiful, ambitious angel stands on a mountaintop, surveying the world and its little inhabitants below. He smiles because soon, the last of humanity who survived the great flood will meet its end, too. And he should know. He's going to play a big part in it.

Our angel usually doesn't get to do fieldwork, and if he does well, he's certain he'll get a big promotion. The angel reaches into his pocket for the instrument of humanity's doom. Must be in the other pocket. Then he frantically begins to pat himself down. Dejected, he realizes he has lost the object. Looking over the Earth at all that could have been, the majestic angel utters a single word. It's A thief named Coop - a specialist in purloining magic objects - steals and delivers a small box to the mysterious client who engaged his services.

Coop doesn't know that his latest job could be the end of him - and the rest of the world.

My *Very* First Romance Reveal Box

Suddenly he finds himself in the company of The Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isn't just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him. Amidst the rave reviews, I'm not sure whether it takes courage or stupidity to publish such an opposing view--but I thought it might help those that venture into genres they wouldn't usually look at when all the reviews are so positive and guarantee you'll "love this book.

Data Protection Choices

Based on great reviews and a summary that sounded promising,, I visualized it as a comic fantasy detective story, clever and innovative due to no restraints other than the author's imagination in such a genre. Sadly, I thought the book didn't deliver on any level. Kadrey seemed comfortable treading a small unimaginative circle in an immense universe of possibility. I re-read all of the editorial reviews when I finished and wondered if I had read the same book. The humor hit me as flat, scripted, dorky -- anything but hip and creative.

In a diverse cast of characters, ranging from little school-girl vamps yawn to arch angels and puffer-fish demons, the whole motley crew was surprisingly flat and not in a good way like Road Kill Man in Beetlejuice. I've never read any of the author's Sandman Slim novels, but am not compelled to do so after this. I felt like the author had everything at his disposal, but kept what could've been a hugely fun and creative story stuffed into a tiny little boring box. I really disliked this one immensely -- I kept saying that to myself the whole time I listened.

Useful Information

Nothing here for me, but I hope I've expressed my personal reasons as to why without offending anyone who did--or might--enjoy this type of read. I think the narrator was the perfect match for this well written, follow the bouncing ball of twisting humor and ironic look at belief. Love this book, author, and narrator.

Remember those movies that had a huge cast of characters all vying for the same prize? The Cannonball Run? This book is like that It's laugh out loud hilarious. Oliver Wyman does a superb job. It's a pleasure to listen to him. Each character has a unique voice and the subtle nuances of their dialog is captured beautifully, so much so that several exchanges in the story had me grinning, then struggling, and failing, to maintain my composure in the quiet office environment where I work.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what the hero and heroine saw in each other. This is just a quick little review to warn Kadrey fans this is no SMS! I thought Kadrey's Sandman Slim series was pretty darn good though the dumb tough-guy act got a little old , enjoyed books by A. Lee Martinez very amusing , and loved the Johannes Cabal series by J. So, I thought that another dose of dark humor with a supernatural bent would be fun. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by this tale. While the idea has obviously been done a few times before, it still has potential.

But frankly, I just got plain sick of the book. Each chapter was just a seemingly endless series of these exchanges. The plot and pace just get lost in these silly little exchanges; and I felt like, after enough of them, each one got to be akin to being bludgeoned about the head with a club that reads "This character is a smart-ass bad-boy who doesn't give a flying fig! Wyman also did a great job with the voice acting, making each character distinct, and emulating various states of intoxication in some cases, without ever falling into campy caricatures.

While not being as fully immersive as some voice actors e. George Newbern or hitting that perfect tone e. Bray , I think that Wyman did a very nice job. Title says it all. Loved the book. Other descriptions I read didn't fit as well as mine imho.

  • Any additional comments? The first chapter is one of the best I've ever read; funny, captivating, clever. From then on it just got more and more boring with a few witty comments here and there. I couldn't finish it. Maybe just not my kind of book. This is a funny story of several groups of bumblers all in search of the same prize.


    A box that will destroy the world. It's laugh out loud hilarious, as we get a good look into each searcher and their journey.

    • It somewhat reminds me of a Carl Hiaasen caper done urban fantasy style, and of course all the loose ends tie together eventually. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I got this audio because of his prior work Sandman Slim, I listened to the preview and I was hooked, I would recommend this to anyone who liked Sandman. What did you like best about this story? The flow and action was very good as well as the humor. Which character — as performed by Oliver Wyman — was your favorite? Wyman is a master performer, all his renditions of characters are fantastic.

      I really liked Phil. This starts out with a bang. Right from the beginning there is hilarity and an angel loosing the one weapon that would have finished off mankind. Talk about sucking the reader into the story! Easily reminds me of Terry Pratchett, although a bit darker, like Clive Barker. The mix is intriguing urban fantasy that is fun to read and even better to get lost in.

      In this world there is all kinds of magic and magical creatures.
