Book Review: The Dick by Jimmy Pudge

The Dick by Jimmy Pudge on Amazon

So, Jimmy Pudge has a new book out, does he? Yes he does, and it's a book well worth buying.

The Dick gives us an unlikely hero, Jonny Sausage, who can jump out of a fifth story window, get up and run away, yet gets winded riding a bike up a hill. Jonny was a porn star, but he's just been given his walking papers. So what does he do? He becomes a private detective, of course. This being a Jimmy Pudge book, Jonny's only client is a sexy vampire who wants to find out who's killing off her clan.

Mr. Pudge has gone all in on this novel. Jimmy has always traveled the edge of good taste in his writing, and this time he floored the accelerator and sped past, never looking back. The Dick is violent, funny, and filthy, to a degree never seen in his writing before. The is your Adult Content Warning, my friends, and I do mean warning. If sexual content is going to bother you, you might want to skip this book. If you like fast paced, whacked out adventure that makes you laugh out loud, then brothers and sisters, pay out your money right now, because you're going to have a great time.

You won't learn great truths about humanity reading a Jimmy Pudge book, but you will find yourself enjoying the ride as you hold on for dear life. Jimmy Pudge's writing is the kind of writing that punches you in the gut, and when you're looking at it as if to say "What the heck?" it laughs in your face. When you come to something and you think, "Oh no, he's not going there.." - he goes there, and then he runs past there and shakes you up and down, just for the fun of it.

The Dick is fun, filthy and exciting. If you like writing that is one, two or three of those things, then you should buy this right away, because you'll have a great time. IMO the ending is a little weak, but that didn't stop me from enjoying this book. It's so strong in every other way, it doesn't matter.

Jimmy Pudge is an author with a growing body of work that is deserving of attention and support. His is a unique voice in fiction, and that really says something. There's a lot of dreck in the world of independent publishing, but this isn't it. This is the real deal, sealed and delivered. Buy it. Read it. Be happy.   The Dick by Jimmy Pudge on Amazon
