Comments Got Luck

  • Carole Hayes

    I really enjoyed the heck out of this book! I read some of the reviews from people who didn't like it, because I was curious: how could somebody NOT enjoy this book and want to read more??Turns out that the things several of them didn't like are things that I DO like, so I guess it makes perfect sense. :)My thoughts: - I LIKE that Got goes off on tangents (I do it myself, and so do most of my friends and favorite tv characters; think: Lorelei Gilmore)- I LIKE Got's sense of humor and I laughed o [...]

    “Got Luck is a hardboiled comedic detective novel in the awesome urban fantasy genre that takes you on a ride from Miami Beach to the land of the Fae. The novel is an adventure filled with magic, humor and a fascinating lead character who cracks jokes at every turn. Most importantly, he has no idea he’s about to save the world. Or get married.I laughed a lot and found the whole thing extremely entertaining. I kept thinking that if you mixed Harry Potter and Harry Dresden, you would get the c [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.My rating falls around a 3.5.It's taken some doing to pull my thoughts together on this book because those thoughts are very polarized. There are some things I really loved, and some complete book throwing offenses (Even if I was reading on a tablet!). So I'll try to cover some of the highlights and lowlights and leave it to you to decide if you want to give Luck a try.The highlights:Miami! It's nice to see a less common setting for [...]

    This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.---When we meet Goethe “Got” Luck, he's one part Harry Bosch (at least they both have unfortunate, yet cool, first names), two parts Elvis Cole. Seriously, he's a barely disguised Elvis pastiche -- his partner, Nat is about as close to Joe Pike as you could want (if you wanted to argue he's Hawk and Henry Cimoli rolled into one to go with Luck's Spenser, I wouldn't arguech). If that's all that Luck was -- a wise-cracking, private eye in th [...]

    When Goethe "Got" Luck starts to work on a dead end murder case, his life is turned upside down. he never expected what was waiting aroud the next corner for him and it really adds to the suspense of the story. He really never expected the mythical creatures that he encounters along the way either. He better hope, he has a lot of luck on his side.I found this book to be well written. the story seems plausible and the characters are enjoyable to read and to get to know. Once i started reading, i [...]

  • Arlene Arredondo

    An enjoyable tale that appeals to all ages. Love the dramatic introduction to the story and how easily the events that follow are consistent with the plot. At first glance you may feel that this could be an “arroz con mango”, but it clearly follows a path that evolves into something interesting and highly entertaining. The main character is so sarcastic that is very hard not to laugh out loud, and the others are so enigmatic it is hard to know which is friend or foe. Hope to see more of this [...]

  • Blanka Šálková

    I loved this one from start to finish, which does not happen that often with me. The main character is witty and his descriptions of the various situations are just hilarious. I will not go into details because of possible spoilers but except for the usual whodunit, you can be looking forward to a bit of mystery :-D.

  • Aften Brook

    Not just a fantasy novel.This is Gothic awesomeness with swagger. I read it twice--it's that good.

  • Tink

    If you want a book you can't put down, this is the one that you'll want to pick up next. AMAZING!

  • Pam Bales

    Great start to a series new to me. It's a different take on fey/human interaction. I look forward to more from Michael Darling and fortunately the next book in the series Got Hope is just a few swipes away.

  • Marilyn

    Any book that has magic, quotes from Casablanca and Princess Bride is enjoyable in my book.

  • Tj

    It took me a few chapters to really get into the story and start to enjoy it. The protagonist, who narrates the story, has a very in-your-face sense of humor that annoyed me. It made him less than likable early on, though he improved on me by the end of the novel. The humor and sarcasm took the edge off some of the more thrilling moments in the book, and some of the names and explanations for faery-land (Behindbeyond?) were a little juvenile.That said, the humor and language of the main characte [...]

  • Linda

    Private Investigator Goethe (Got) Luck has always been a little strange, what with his ability to see dark writhing ribbons of color that he calls Stain on certain peoplelors that he thinks are associated with magic. Raised in a foster home by The Mama, ex-military, ex-police, his latest case may prove to be more than he can handle. Shortly after meeting with the client, a bullet smashes through his office window, narrowly missing him, and then he is attacked in his home by a giant invisible lio [...]

  • Chad

    A very enjoyable debut perfect for fans of The Dresden Files. I love the snarky interaction between Goethe and Erin. Darling's version of the faerie realm is very intriguing. Can't wait to read more of the politics there. I wish he'd detailed the "stains" that Goethe sees better. Goethe just mentions it in passing like it's no big deal even though at the time he doesn't know anything about magic. My other issue is how calmly Goethe takes being introduced to this magical realm of faerie.

  • Ramona Lazar

    I am so sorryI saw what good reviews this book had, but no matter how hard I tried, it didn't do anything for me. I didn't like it one bit. I couldn't finish itrry, I am sure it is a good book and all, maybe just not for me

  • Alex Harrow

    Fun urban fantasy that puts a twist on some Germanic folklore and packs tons of action. I really enjoyed this one!

  • Kayla

    Holy cannoli, Batman! What a dang-flippin'-awesome story!And with that introduction to my overall feelings toward Got Luck, on to the actual reviewBuying books from unfamiliar authors at Salt Lake Comic Con is kind of a hit-and-miss business (or at least it has been for me), but I definitely hit the jackpot when I snagged a copy of this book. Got Luck is a quick-paced magical mystery adventure with a touch of romance that I guarantee will have you laughing out loud and earning you strange looks [...]

  • Michael Glassford

    I had no expectations when I began reading Got Luck, by Michael Darling. It started as a quirky detective story, a "who done it?" mystery. I was mildly intrigued, but it was the character's voice, unique, charming, and irreverently sarcastic, that had me at hello. By the looks of the front cover, and the back blurb, I knew magic would appear eventually. It came in small doses at first. Gothe could see things others couldn't. It was an innocuous gift at first, hard to divine a purpose, but set th [...]

  • Ann

    This story started off slow for me, and I wondered if I would get through it. I struggled to connect to with the hero because I felt the story had a more "tell" than "show" style to it.And then I hit chapter 6.The book was very engaging after that, filled with a murder mystery twisted with fae magic, and romance. Got's humor was endearing. I look forward to the sequel, "Got Hope"

  • Tania

    If you like Jim Butcher then you will love this series!

  • Amy Bruno

    Not Dresden, but not bad.

  • Craig Kingsman

    This is not the type of book I generally read. Supernaturals fighting crime in the mortal world. But the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong hooked me years ago and when Michael Darling wrote Got Luck, I had to read it too. After all, I've known Michael for over 25 years. Despite that, this is an honest review.Got Luck. An uncommon name for a man. But he's an uncommon human. Well, not really human. He's a halfling and is thousands of years old. And the son of the fae king. Only he [...]

  • Daniel Yocom

    Goethe (Got) Luck is a private detective in Miami who always had a touch with the fantastical elements that most people never know about. He is telling his story about how he finds out more about who, and what he is. This is not fan fiction of someone else's world. Even though there are similarities to other books (Jim Butcher's Dresden series) Michael Darling creates his own setting and characters. A fun read that left me wanting to know what is going to happen next. I decided to pick up this b [...]

  • Kim Feller

    Okay, Michael Darling's (Is he related to Wendy? Has he, too, travelled to Neverland?) new work is a little like the eponymous hero's favorite kimchi - an odd concoction of sometimes left-over veggies, pickled to puckering perfection and highly flavored with exotic spices: not for everyone, but for the adventurous of taste, for the wannabe gourmet, for the wanderer into strange little side streets in the restaurant districts of large cities.Got Luck (Got is short for Goethe - the first tantalizi [...]

  • Dina

    I was given this book for my honest review.Got Luck is a fantasy mystery novel, filled with magic, epic fights and a healthy dose of romance. The concept is an overly used one that spins the idea on its head. However, Darling brings nothing new and we are left with a profoundly common YA novel.While the concept of the story was quite interesting, the language was very distracting. Darling does not allow the story to show the reader anything. Rather he tells the reader everything, I found myself [...]

  • Jolie

    I am going to start off this review doing something I have never done before. I want everyone to know that I absolutely LOVE the cover of this book. Normally, I am “eh” about book covers. They are usually hit or miss and few come close to even giving a hint about what the book is about. But this cover nails it and I will leave it at that (READ THE BOOK!!!)Now that I got that out of my system, onto my review.I really, really liked Got Luck. It was fast paced, full of twists and turns and surp [...]

  • Julia

    ***I was given this as an e-book for an unbiased review***it's more like a 2 1/2 almost a 3! again why can't we do half stars?!When I first started the book, I liked Got's voice and his humor and how the story flowed well with his dialogue. It reminded me of being in an episode of Psych with Milly coming to him to find out who killed her husband. That's probably the only part I was really drawn to because I like the show.After that things fell apart. The world the author created was interesting [...]

  • Bran Diayanne

    I must admit that before reading this book, I thought it was a fiction mystery detective thriller. Upon reading several chapters in however, I realized the book went from the normal in this word, to the out of this natural world normal. This book genre is considered fantasy/Science Fiction/Crime. This book written by author Michael Darling has 37 chapters in it with 300 pages of reading.Honestly, I did enjoy reading the first few chapters of this book. The main character is a former police offic [...]

  • Bosn Whitewolf

    Harry Dresden with knowing magicWell put together story arc. But it does leave the reader looking forward to the next book. The twisted one liners and humor reminds none of the famous Harry Dresden created by Jim Butcher.
