The Incredible Story Of Jimmy Shanfer And The Crazy Place On The Other Side Of The Hole In The Ocean: The First G-World Adventure by Fatman Butter [3.5 stars]




From the Description:

Having fallen overboard from his ship, Jimmy Shanfer is about to surrender his life to the ocean, when, by a chance in a million, he is rescued. From that moment on Jimmy is embroiled in an adventure so fantastic he is never quite sure if he is insane, dreaming, or if perhaps he is actually dead.

With a cast of characters that includes Stephen King, James Bond and Dracula; if you like your fantasy on the wild side, walk this way.

I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this book.

The Incredible Story Of Jimmy Shanfer And The Crazy Place On The Other Side Of The Hole In The Ocean: The First G-World Adventure is actually two adventures. You also get The Astonishing Account Of The Day Jonathan Hoag Spent In The Strange Place Below The Pavements Of Putney: The Second G-World Adventure in this omnibus.



This novel is a literature lover's bizzaro fantasy. G-World is a demention where stories are real. You get to meet a wide range of characters, everyone from Rumpelstiltskin to James Bond. There are dragons and gypsies as well as classic horror favorites like Dracula and the Wolfman. Jimmy and Woody along with their friends must try to save G-World from the nefarious plans of an author gone mad. Some of the characters are truly memorable. I loved Targo and his gypsy family as well as Li and her Trupo's. There were parts that were truly hilarious. The whole chapter with Beelzebub's Bad Boys, a biker gang in pink lederhosen, had me laughing so hard I cried. I look forward to the next G-World adventure! A super fun 3.5 star read.
