I love the hell described in this book. I couldn't get enough

Although well written, at over 400 pages it just becomes tedious. It could have easily been 100 pages shorter. Even the plot got boring and annoying. Angel in Hell has certain death encounter with demon. He escapes. Over and over and over...
I also got really annoyed with the author reminding the reader every other page that he was doing this to get his demon girlfriend back. We get it after the first 50 mentions.
The ending at least wasn't cliche, but still either confusin or disappointing. After 400+ pages of striving for his girlfriend, it's not clear if he eventually ever did. Overall, this book does NOT live up to all the industry hype on the cover.

You'd think everything has been imagined about Hell. Yet, Happy Hour in Hell really manages to come up with some new ideas, many of them cruel or somewhat disturbing, and make Bobby Dollar's exploration of it absolutely riveting. There's a lot of violent fights in this book, gory depictions of torture and other "niceties" you can expect in Hell, so it might not be suitable for the faint-hearted.
However, if you can enjoy a horror story, Happy Hour in Hell is certainly one of the most entertaining I read lately. I picked the book as a relaxing read and it did the job 100%. It's a rather traditional save-the-princess epic-fantasy quest (which I'd usually find boring), except it's in Hell and that the princess is damned. There's a lot of actions, a remarkably creative world, some unforgettable characters, and even some thought-provoking discussions about the Hell/Heaven idea along the way. It's also pretty funny.
