Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but that was because I listened to the other three books back-to-back. Any additional comments? This book is a bit different from the others, but is a good read and seems to be developing the series for the future. The story is ok but the characters don't take anything g seriously until it's almost too late.

They lack intelligence and planning. I pointed out several plot points way before they happened and at times it was almost painful to listen to parts that you just don't care about. I'm on the 5th book of the Tome of Bill series, and it's a great story.
Funny, relatively believable, and full of action. The narrator Fetherolf , however, could really use some help. Not particularly obscure words, either: "caste" and "penchant", for instance. It's not like these books are recorded alone in a basement. Also, I noticed a few editing gaps in this book; the narrator would do a second take on a sentence, but they never edited the first take out. Not a big deal, but a little unprofessional. Overall, the narration is decent, and the mispronunciation is annoying, but not enough to ruin the story for me.
Just be forewarned. The latest installment of the Tome of Bill continues to raise the bar for how much crap can be dumped on a poor geeky vampire. As a result, it's a good thing Bill doesn't have to breath because there isn't a snorkel long enough. Explosions have Bill dancing as fast as he can as he tries to stay undead for another day.

Just when you figure there isn't anyone Bill hasn't driven to want him dead, his ultimate wedgie of bad luck and super anti-personnel powers manage to identify the few beings left on the planet that don't want to "Kill Bill" and alienates them. This is a fast paced, action packed ireverent romp tripping the vampire geek-tastic.
Bill's SMALL group of co-adventurers friends would be stretching it in some cases , lead by Sally a real femme fatale , navigate a world turned hostile where "safe house" seems to translate to "Ground Zero" for Bill. Bill's inner monologue and the witty banter between characters had me laughing out loud.
It's got to be funny to get me to laugh out loud because people look at me strange when I do; but this book is funny and people did stare. This tome ended on a cliff hanger so there has to be another one coming and I can't wait.
