"FUNNY & ENTERTAINING" (Brett #6 Review)

Cool review for "BRETT GETS HAMMERED" --

Funny and Entertaining

Brett Gets Hammered is the 6th novel in the Brett Cornell series of Mysteries by David D’Aguanno and after I listened and reviewed another novel by this author, Why She Left Us, I reached out to him and asked for something else to read. As this series is driven by a character very unlike others in the industry, I was forewarned as to its faults and differences to other fictional regular private investigators, but I thought that I should give it a try as I find Mr. D’Aguanno‘s writing style very compelling.

The first part of the plot sounds a little like any other out there, with a sudden death of a father and husband, a quite significant inheritance, a young step mother as the primary beneficiary and with the biological kids left out of it all. But, the kids are willing to go to extreme lengths in order to assure that they are getting their well deserved payday and they just need someone with less scruples than they have… Enter, self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard Brett Cornell, our main character, the man who is ready and willing to break every law, cheat everyone and get as low as he can, just for a piece of the pie, or, in this case, the money!

Maybe you think you know what’s coming, but, trust me, you don’t, or as another great author used to say, you know nothing! The plot is actually very interesting, the action moves fast and the jokes are 10 a minute.

Brett is a drunk, a cheat, a thief, a misogynistic pig and a liar with his mind only on sex, money and how to get in bed with all the humans of the female persuasion, no matter the costs or the consequences. When you add that he is not the brightest bulb in the bunch and that at times he is really dumb, you might cut him some slack.

At no moment what so ever should you take him seriously, just think of the story as a well-written parody. You’ll discover all his ”attributes” in the first five minutes with Brett Gets Hammered and you might be wanting to put the book down or to stop listening, but I think that if you give him a chance, he will grow on you. If you are offended by such characters and can’t stand them, this series is not for you, but if you just take it as a purely fictional story with a corn-for-brains main character, you will find yourself smiling a lot and enjoying it as well.

Voiceover artist, actor and narrator Travis Henry Carter brings the audiobook version of Brett Gets Hammered to life with talent, intensity and a unique delivery. He reads the entire book using a wiseguy accent that gives it a complete level of immersion. He uses a large number of voices to entertain the listener and to help him keep all the different characters separate in his mind.

There were no problems with the quality of the recording and I had a really good time listening.

For those of you looking for a quick, funny and entertaining listen, I strongly recommend Brett Gets Hammered by David D’Aguanno and performed by Travis Henry Carter.

Looks like "BRETT GETS HAMMERED" has been selected as one of the 5 finalists in this year's Independent Audiobook Awards -- Humor Category

With a title like that? -- Makes sense, don't it? (as Brett would say)

June 7 is the day the awards will be presented.

Can Brett make it all the way to the top?

Are UNSCRUPULOUS BASTARDS even allowed to enter prestigious contests such as this one???

Another Great Review for "IT'S ALL BRETT'S FAULT"

A UK listener (known as "Norma" on Goodreads) has posted this fabulous 5-star review of "IT'S ALL BRETT'S FAULT" -- as Brett's fame continues to spread far & wide !!!

 (Brett: "That's a good thing, ain't it?")

Format : Audiobook )
 "More than one way to skin a canary."
It's hot outside and Brett is pumping iron. Modest and retiring as always, at 37 he believes he's never looked better, even hotter than the weather outside. But he's still a long way from his goal of Easy Street by the time he's 40. In fact, he's broke. And still hurting after 'she who cannot be named.'

 So when offered a job as protection for a man who claims that someone wants to murder him which pays five thousand dollars for a couple of weeks work, Brett goes along with the pushy Marcus Wade, little knowing that he might just have met another unscrupulous bastard like himself.

 The story is, as always, ramblingly related by Brett (and his alter ego, Travis Henry Carter) himself. Not a book for the uptight P.C. crowd. In fact, Brett is not someone anyone would ever want to really meet, but experienced through the pages of David D.D'Aguanno's books, he is rampant, if you get my drift. And Travis Henry Carter's narration is superb, becoming the vain, obnoxious moustachioed and muscled monster so seductive to the ladies, whilst at the same time voicing everyone else be they male or female, very distinctively. The combination of author and narrator makes the Brett Cornell stories absolutely unmissable.

 Do I recommend it? "Do ducks quack and mooses moo?" Absolutely.
