West End Droids & East End Dames (Easytown Novels, Book 3) by Brian Parker and narrated by Daniel Penz was a fun one. It left me wanting to know more about the world and hoping there will be more books although it's mentioned it's the last in the series. Full review below...
Where to purchase:
West End Droids & East End Dames (Easytown Novels, Book 3) by Brian Parker and narrated by Daniel Penz has a noir feel to it. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and glad I took a chance with it. If you enjoy cyberpunk, this is your typical read, or you’re looking for something new in the genre, give this book a try.
What’s it about? Zach’s job is in jeopardy and he must find those responsible while dealing with cyborgs, corruption, drugs, a deteriorating love life, brothels, and more. If you enjoy books with droids, crime, detectives, AI, and futuristic tech, this is a book for you. I enjoyed his AI partner (or sorts) the most. Sometimes I wanted a little more from certain scenes, but it is what it is. Great world building!
The narrator, Daniel Penz, did a great job! I would listen to him again.
Despite not listening the first two books in the series, I was able to jump right in and understand what was happening. Overall, it kept my interest and made me want to know more about the world/Zach’s history. I’m a bit disappointed to learn this is the last book in the series (hoping this isn’t true) as the ending leaves some things open for the possibility of more. Ended up listening to this in two sittings, but only because I had to sleep.
Parental guidance/trigger warnings: swearing (throughout), death, guns and other like weapons, prostitution, drugs, and other similar situations.
