Tad Williams has never disappointed me, and this story was no different in the fine tradition of tales like the Drood series Bobby Dollar is touching, humorous, and full of action.Don t take the story too seriously, expect to have fun, and you ll be fine Unless you re afraid of werewolves or werepigs DEFINITELY don t read if you re afraid of werepigs.This was the first story of Bobby that I have read, but it definitely won t be the last. This story fits in after the 3 Bobby Dollar books and does a very good job of not actually spoiling them At one point it mentions view spoiler that Bobby has been to Hell and escaped hide spoiler AngelicWhile this was a short story hence why I only have it four stars it was a good book I love the character Bobby Dollar and the fact we get to see just a littleof him This is a surprising book for Tad as his books are normally HUGE I would recommend this story for all who like Tad Williams,Bobby Dollar, and a fantasy. trilogy or novella Bobby Dollar rocksAfter enjoying Tad Williams latest Trilogy..this short novella brought back the fun flash of our favorite grumpy AngelTW knows dialogue, action how to keep readers flipping pages with a smileoften than not a deep belly laugh Rock on, Bobby..Rock on Bobby Dollar, aka The Angel Doloriel is not your idea of a typical angel Think less flowing robes and shiny halo,a tooled up wiseguy in a noir ish setting you d beon the right track Don t be mistaken though, Dollar is certainly one of the good guys.This novella, a Christmas story, was released last year and certainly feels very seasonal If you haven t read Williams Bobby Dollar series The Dirty Streets of Heaven, Happy Hour in Hell, Sleeping Late on Judgement Day there aren t any real spoilers here but then, if you haven t read the BD books you re missing a treat So, to the story..It is Christmas Eve and Bobby Dollar is called to be advocate for the soul of Petar Vesic who has just died in hospital at the ripe old age of 98 That is what BD does when a person passes over an advocate for Heaven and one for Hell vie for the soul of the deceased in a mini court type scenario Thing is Petar Vesic has not been a good person, he is acceptant of the fact he is going to Hell but he has a favour to ask save my Grandson.In short Bobby is given until sunrise on Christmas Day so it is a race against time for him and George the Werepig and, as you would expect, there are scrapes and surprises along the wayI ll be the first to admit I m a big fan of Tad Williams work, have been since discovering The Dragonbone Chair back in the late 1980 s Usually his books are big sprawling epics but he does the smaller stuff well also check out his books of short stories if you get chance As a novella Gentlepig certainly ranks as short but there is a heck of a lot of story in there Normally this would be enough to guarantee a 4.5 or 5 star review but Where this novella falls down slightly for me is that it really could have done with an extra proof read before publication It s nothing major, just little niggles that most people would overlook or ignore but being an editor and proof reader I cannot let these pass without mention.So, in short, a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas short that could have done with an extra proof check4 5 stars Free for Kindle A Bobby Dollar Christmas novella.I think Bobby Dollar is evenenjoyable in small doses.
