I thought G-MONKEYS was brilliant, one of the most enjoyable books I've read in the last five years. Anything that opens with a headless corpse rolling around in a car and progresses to exploding jelly donuts has a lot going for it.

I will say that the scene where Charlie beats up the guy in the shower was a little too much for me, only because I was sympathetic to Charlie and it seemed like he was torturing the bad guy. (come to think of it . . . he WAS torturing the bad guy)
