Sinossi

Murder haunts The Haven, celebrity James Canning's home since he lost touch with Reality TV. What's his "shrink" to do? Assign writing therapy, of course. But when the good doc reads Canning's memoir, Hyperlink from Hell, he checks into his own padded suite and Canning disappears. To save the doc from madness, The Haven's new director must analyze the hell out of Hyperlink from Hell. Is Canning's tale of kidnapping, murder, time travel and wardrobe malfunction fact or fiction, deceit or delusion? Can she solve the murders, save her boss and find Canning? Or will she need a padded suite of her own?

"Hyperlink from Hell: A Couch Potato's Guide to the Afterlife" isn't just the latest of the funny vampire books. It's the great American mystery... in hyperdrive.

L'autore

Lindy Moone comes from a short line of mental health professionals and now lives far, far away from them: someplace warm and sometimes rainy, near the sea, where she can play with her pencils as much as she likes. She is married, to “The Great Fisherman Boo.” Lindy likes dogs, cats, TV and thunderstorms—but not at the same time, because it hurts. Some say she is a pathological liar. She denies this. Lindy is, however, a pathological blogger, at Belly-Up! (lindymoone.wordpress.com), and can be contacted via Twitter (@LindyMoone), on her facebook page (Lindy Moone, author), and through her in(s)ane website, Literary Subversions (lindymoone.com). It’s a veritable loony bin of wordplay, silly pictures, trivia about the book, and more. Please stop by, especially if you know an easy way to get cats to take worm medicine.

5.0 su 5 stelle Delightfully absurb, snort-out-loud funny, and an unexpectedly chewy moral center 17 ottobre 2015
Di S B - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book was fun as hell. Philosophy, religion, and a world-class pun fest have been nicely rolled into a dark mystery full of fun characters, plot twists, and humor so absurd it's flippin' hilarious.

First, most of the story is the story within the story. I know, right? Head's spinning a bit already. But the author does a great job setting up both worlds, and both sets of characters.
Second, the story in the story is a madcap romp. When the MC comes up for air, you'll be glad she did because you'll need to take a few deep breaths as well.
Third, it will all make sense in the end, and you'll be deeply satisfied.

If you enjoy Terry Pratchett and Monty Python, and also enjoy getting drunk and arguing with the desklamp about whether Schrödinger's cat prefers dry food or dryer lint, you will absolutely love Hyperlink from Hell.

5.0 su 5 stelle A mystery for readers with open, analytical minds! 15 dicembre 2012
Di Carol Ervin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Hyperlink from Hell is witty, complex, profane, inane and insane. Its author, Lindy Moone, gives fair warning of this on its title page:
"Caution: In(s)ane Mystery ahead. If you have any sense, or sensibilities, this senseless novel will surely offend some or all of them. Just put the book down, and back away. (Now)." The quotes are mine.
This book is for readers who crave something truly original.
It has two narrators. The first is female, the acting director of The Haven, an insane asylum. Already you may guess where this is going, though I didn't. The second narrator is an inmate who's gone missing, Jimmie Canning, a former TV reality show star. Jimmie has left behind a first-person account of his activities since his disappearance/murder. He's left this document, "Hyperlink from Hell" in the possession of Al, the former director of the asylum.
In his autobiographical account, Jimmie does not understand what's happening to him, and the reader doesn't either. But hey, maybe this is what insanity feels like (or reality, to some). I'd nearly finished the book before I realized who Al and Jimmie represent. Both are crazy.
Jimmie's narrative is chock full of altered references to television characters and shows, plus Shakespearean allusions and potty jokes. I kept thinking of "a tale told by an idiot" (Macbeth). Because the characters are lovable, the story never feels dark nor the satire harsh.
Hyperlink from Hell could become a cult classic. It's substantial enough, and poses abundant questions for analysis in college literature classes. I envision term papers, theses, dissertations, bull-sessions. In a few places, a "banned book," because some will take offense.
My experience: In the beginning, I kept wanting more of the first narrator-- the sane one--and a traditional-type story. That desire, too, may be part of the message. We want the universe to make sense. I skimmed some of the manic scenes (the book is long) and grew a little tired of farce, but by the end, I loved how the author puzzled the pieces together, and I was ready to read again from the beginning.
Contemporary fiction seldom presents such a challenge, or such fine writing. Kudos, Lindy Moone!
4.0 su 5 stelle A bored god plays games with those who created him 24 ottobre 2016

Hyperlink from Hell is a difficult book. On a superficial level, it’s a bawdy, raucously funny, offbeat fantasy, but it’s a lot more than that. The beginning grabbed me because the author is such a skillful writer, establishing the situation, setting, and characters with smooth realism. Then with the onset of Jimmie Canning’s book-within-a-book, I was plunged into the kind of story I don’t usually read – overloaded with sex, nudity, and bathroom humor. However, I just kept plowing through and that element tapered off as the story continued and expanded into speculative fiction, including an investigation of the afterlife and the nature of god. It’s saturated with puns (and I happen to love puns), and it’s also loaded with references to popular TV and movie entertainment from the past thirty or forty years. I never watched a lot of those shows, so I’m sure I missed some zingers, but I got enough of them to appreciate the effect.
When I finished the book, I reread the beginning and the concluding sections and I have to say, while some of my questions were answered, I felt just like Dr. Stapledon – I still didn’t fully understand what really happened. It’s a book that should be read at least twice because the plot is not the most coherent or self-explanatory. There are two sets of the same characters, who exist in alternate realities, and the relationship among these two sets can get really confusing.
Three of the characters die early on and the quirkiest of gods, who loves pop culture and game shows as much as Jimmie does, steps in to play games with his creations’ afterlife, testing and teaching them in a sort of mad, mad, mad, mad reality show purgatory. It includes shapeshifting (flying monkeys, to say nothing of walking pineapples), a stinky but lovable invisible dog, Frankenstein’s monster, giant T. Rexes, vampires ... the list goes on and on. God appears first as the Wizard of Oz – the Man behind the Curtain – but he also takes the form of the Cheshire Cat, the snake in the Garden of Eden, a tiny devil wielding a pickle fork ... and finally as the Master of Ceremonies in the ultimate game show, which soon morphs into a major battle between good and evil (complete with weapons provided by a purple case reminiscent of the walking box in some of Terry Pratchett’s books.)
But a pivotal element is when god discusses who he really is, and this calls for a quotation:

“Check out those books of yours, again. All of them. My favorite line is ‘Man created God in his own image.’ ... I think I was willed into existence.”
“Who could do such a thing? How? Why?”
“YOU PEOPLE, WHO ELSE? How, I can’t say. I’m sure you had your reasons – lots of reasons – but when it all comes down to it, you just want someone to blame and a Twinkie. I’m sick to death of you, but I’m stuck.”

So this cynical, bored god plays with those who created him in order to alleviate his boredom, but this doesn’t negate the processes of good and evil. “Thou shalt not kill” still applies and so do the Seven “Dudleys,” the Seven Deadly Sins. And the wonder of it is, the antihero Jimmie grows as a character, until by the end he becomes a real hero, defeating evil with a visual pun in a delightful plot twist. Jimmie also refuses to kill and has learned how to forgive and how to care about his fellow human beings. A hero also has to give up something in order to do the right thing (part of my own definition of the hero) and that surely happens in Jimmie’s case. All of this comes out of his own mental processes, which aligns this book with humanism – that your ability to be good comes out of yourself and not from an external command from a god who may not even have an independent existence.
I could write a lot more about this book, but I’ll just end by again praising the author’s writing skills, which are capable of keeping the reader mesmerized even when the plot is at its most confusing. I should also say that the ebook is carefully formatted, with no aberrations to distract the attention and no typos that I caught. That’s yet another plus. The only reasons I’m giving it four instead of five stars are the excessive use of bawdy humor and the confusing elements of the plot.
And at least at the moment, the book is only 99 cents. You’ll get a lot of pleasure and an intellectual workout for this 99 cents, and I strongly recommend that you pick up a copy right now.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wild, whacky, wonderful adventure! 11 ottobre 2012
Di Tobias D. Robison - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Can the hero of this brilliantly written book prevent a murder that happened barely one year ago? And why does "Al" keep changing his universe? The author takes us through a kaleidoscopic adventure of plots, subplots and deft media references, while we try to make sense of it all. Time travel to the present (rather than the past and the future) is sooo tricky, especially when one's footgear keeps metamorphosing. The footnotes made me laugh while I was trying to keep all the Jennies straight.

I heartily recommend this book. It's a rare treat that you can read more than once. The jokes will be just as fresh the second time, and when you know where the plot is going, you'll enjoy being puzzed and confusled in entirely new ways.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful book! 2 novembre 2012
Di Richard R. R. Ruane - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a great book! It's an exceedingly fun read that moves its interesting cast of characters through a series of (often very funny) situations as the mysteries around them deepen. The author acknowledges that she has a crush on Neil Gaiman and that one of her favorite books is Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". Her writing in this book is more reminiscent of Douglas Adams than Neil Gaiman (except for some of Neil's less dark stories like "How to Pick Up Girls") but I was also reminded a little of some of Daniel Pinkwater's best novels (though this author does acknowledge the existence of sex) and even a little of Terry Pratchett (especially with the use of footnotes/hyperlinks). It's an excellent first novel! Well worth checking out.
