    1. This is an entertaining elaboration on an increasingly elaborate and intricate world. Seriously, Gumeny makes frequent use of the incredibly complex series of apocalypses that make up this world. The ability to even keep all that straight, much less develop it and reference it in a relevant way as a meaningful story goes on, is astounding. It really forms the main lifeblood of the series for me, though the main story arc with the humorous characters is a great deal of fun as well. Definitely hea [...]

    2. I had a strange relationship with this book. I closed it after finishing the Prologue and took a long breath and a long break - it was totally outside my normal reading list. Identically, things repeated with the first chapter, just that I don't remember if I could still breathe, but the break was longer. With a kind of mad courage I stepped into the Boring Ages, and suddenly, a strange switch followed: I liked the second chapter. A whole new and mostly bizarre post-apocalyptic world took shape, [...]

    3. I read this series a bit out of order. I received an ARC for #4 and that was my introduction to Eirik Gumeny. After that, I read #1, #2, and finally, #3 (this one). The writing was just as good and the plot was just as convoluted and unexpected as the other three, but I found myself wanting more at the end (but I’d already read the last one first). As with all of Eirik’s books, I have a few favorite quotes. I love the company that didn’t care about its customers: Consolidated Phukital. I l [...]

    4. Twenty-six and a half apocalypses, so what's one more. This book is a wild and funny dark comedy with characters that are way out of left field. There's Thor, the Norse Thunder God, and Boudica IX, a cloned and cybernetically enhanced Celtic Queen, who are teamed up the likes of more cybernetically enhanced clones of Queen Victoria and President Chester A. Arthur. There is even a psychic cybernetic squirrel. Their mission (other to avoid boredom and occasional debauchery) is to fix the damage do [...]

    5. This book left me more confused than the previous books. But let me sit down with a plate of fluffy pancakes and try to think of something to say. Timmy is back. Which is a wonderful thing. Bathe previous book didn't have much to Timmy and that left me disappointed. But here, Timmy is back. Granted he finishes off all the peanut butter in the world (not cool Timmy) and commits some acts of terrorism but I still love him and I'm glad he's back. On the other hand Boudica as a character rally didn' [...]

    6. If you've read the first two books in this series, then you know what to expect here- cloned presidents, a psychic super-squirrel, and a petulant thunder god out to save the world from the umpteenth apocalypse. Brilliantly funny with at least one laugh out loud on every page. If you haven't read the first two books in this series, then go get started right now!

    7. If Lewis Carrol and George Lucas coauthored a book over a large pot of espresso and a little tinge of 'roid - rage, it might read something like High Voltage. Eirik Gumeny produces a graphic novel using words alone. The book is loosely held together which is both virtue and vice. For the younger to middle-aged male who has just finished 'one of those weeks', it makes for an excellent evaporative coolant. Whether it includes a telepathic squirrel, a more bionic and less flesh and blood man, or a [...]

    8. So, in my ongoing revisitation of the older books while I finish the new book -- soon, I swear -- I finally got around to (more or less) objectively reading High Voltage. And I liked it. The scavenger hunt plot was a nice change of pace, I liked the B plot possible more than the A plot, and I'm glad [redacted] made his return.Definitely no writery baggage brought to this one, unlike Dead Presidents, so that's good -- I can just read the book for what it is. That said, HV doesn't stick with me th [...]
