    One thought on “Unforeseen”

    1. Hard to say what to rate this. Plot's a good solid 3.5. But the writing? Even for a cheap/free Kindle download, this sucked.Look, Nick. You have a foreword about how this book is your baby. Yeah? How in hell do you think a baby should be treated? Would you feed it, give it clothing?Two suggestions:1. BUY A FUCKING DICTIONARY. I have never seen so much unintentionally misused vocabulary in one volume. The one that really stuck with me was "if either Caleb or I had been poignant enough to remove o [...]

    2. I'm pretty conflicted about this. It's not a bad story, and the writing is more than adequate. I'm a huge fan of sarcasm and dry wit, and Pirog is good at it, but there's way too much of it here. Almost every page has a "witty" or sarcastic comment, and it stops being amusing and begins to feel snarky and forced.

    3. The edition I read is the tenth anniversary one (not really dated except for celebrity references, so this book is one of those early embarrassment works. I mean the author seems to be proud of it and apparently wrote more of them. Pirog's writing has certainly improved. His Henry Bins 3 am book (which is how I found out about the author) was quite good. Looks like he's learned to fine tune his sense of humor to something appropriate and a thing or two about plot/character originality. Unforesee [...]

    4. I NEVER miss my stop on the train, not even when I'm sleeping. This book made me miss my stop twice in one day, once on the way to work and then again on the way home. A bona fide page turner!

    5. Reading Nick's bio helped me put this book in better perspective. He wrote this book while in his early 20's, which explains some of the adjectives and adverbs (sometimes archaic, sometimes wrong), a lot of the high-school level humor (although I laughed out loud very late at night over 2 of the witty observations), much of the hormonally-infused introspective dialogue and the cheap shots at the FBI.The plot was put together pretty well, with some weak spots toward the end of the novel. The desc [...]

    6. I really had a hard time reading this book. I made a vow to never not finish a book after starting one. If the author took the time to write it, then I would take the time to read it. I so wanted to break the rule with this book. The book dragged for me. The plot and story line are exciting and don't clash. One of the things that turned me off immediately is all the little sarcastic jabs the main character has to say in every scene. It was so immature. I just wanted to slap him and yell. As a pe [...]

    7. An introductory free ebook by someone who has gone on to bigger, and I assume better, things. I rarely give 2 stars to a book I finish, but felt obligated in this case. It's not that it is written poorly, rather that for me it was generally unpleasant. The story is supposed to be an investigative crime/thriller, but it has all the features of a teen horror. Clues are suddenly discovered by the protagonist, who otherwise had no idea what was happening, but usually only in time to be the first to [...]

    8. As another reviewer stated: Not sure how to rate this. Several things bothered me: 1. (language--pretty objectionable) 2. Over the top humor (yes, it is possible to get too much of a good thing). 3. Editing (or lack of)--lots of errors that I couldn't believe weren't caught by anyone but the readers.That said, I really got hooked about 70% through the book & had to stay awake till I finished. Oh, and there's, also, a #4 that I forgot: the main character's excessive drinking (and I do mean ex [...]

    9. This may be one of my new top authors. Retired detective Thomas Prescott knows a serial killer, Tristen Grayer, is alive while the public think he was killed. Thomas is an FBI consultant. On the anniversary of his first murder, the killing begins again and involves women known to Thomas. While protecting his blind sister, current girlfriend and students, he must stop the killer. Very fast read, good plot. I really enjoyed this book. I rate it a 5.0

    10. Unforeseen Enjoyment should have been the title of this novel!Anyone with a sense of humor will thoroughly enjoy this. Author keeps you guessing and involved all the way through even though it's being slightly gory.

    11. Another not right for me though it merits an extra star as I hadn't spotted a single mistake when I packed it in. I saw in some reviews before I started it that they mentioned the humour and hoped it wasn't going to be too funnybut unfortunately it is. All I'd read when I gave up with it was the male lead wise-cracking his way through life, even after discussing a girl hacked into 30 pieces. I prefer my murders to be taken more seriously, and yes, I'm aware it's fiction but still.I packed it up [...]

    12. 4 stars for the story2 stars for the incredibly poor editing, which got worse with every passing page.The editing was so annoying and distracting that it would have yielded a 2.5 star rating but I liked Prescott's snarky smart-ass character enough that I give it a 3 star. And I liked Prescott enough that I'll read the second one in the series and hope that Pirog discovered the importance of a good hard edit.

    13. I found out about this book through Book Bub and purchased it. Mysteries are my favourite genre and I am always looking for new authors to read This book was ok. I thought I had mystery solved but was wrong. I will probably read more by this author. I found some of the attempts at witty writing and witty comments annoying and did not contribute to plot. I hope that decreases some in future books. There are quite a few characters and a lot of murders. Not the best book I have read but it did keep [...]

    14. LudicrousA flippant tale about a serial killer that that is told as if young women's deaths are all a silly game. There is little suspense as the author is more interested in the next wisecrack his "hero" can make. A killer hacking the bodies up into parts is not an easy thing to do and certainly cannot be done quickly. A pathologist not doing an autopsy on a murder victim is unthinkable. The author was apparently only 22 and it was his first book, but it needed a serious rewrite. Disappointing [...]

    15. I really enjoyed this book! I am well aware that most people will find the main character obnoxious, sexist, uncaring, and a real smart ass, but I found his wit, attitude, and honesty very entertaining. Although a bit of editing wouldn't hurt, I accepted the grammar errors, misused words, and sentence structure as just part of the character's flaws, and he has a lot of flaws. Still, he has a knack for attracting women, even if he can't keep them once his personality wears on them, and an even bi [...]

    16. This is not a book for everyone. It's extremely gruesome and graphic and the main character can be really annoying. I loved it anyway. Go figure.

    17. There were moments when I really enjoyed this book, but overall there were just too many things I found problematic. For instance, in a book populated with humans, my favorite character was the narcoleptic pug. The rest of the cast was "meh". I didn't care at all for the main character, Thomas. His detective skills were less than impressive and his interpersonal issues were not in any way endearing. Instead of coming across as a mature, retired detective, he more easily passed for a Frat boy. Hi [...]

    18. A great story, and well written indeed. I had to deduct a star for the over-the-top consistent smart-mouthing of Thomas; too much of it spoiled the characterisation by not giving a sense of any 'serious' side to Thomas (compared to DeMille's John Corey, for example). Considering, though, it was written by a 22-year-old Mr Pirog, the book was an overall great read. The author himself acknowledges the ending was a bit rushed, so I'm glad I am probably not the only one who felt they must have misse [...]

    19. "Unforeseen" was my first Nick Pirog book. I was quickly drawn into the storyline but I found that liking the main character, Thomas Prescott, took some time. Prescott is definitely not politically correct and his sense of humor took some time getting used to. At times he can be a little vulgar at other times comical. The story itself is a page turner, especially as you get into it. You definitely want to know the who, what, where, how and when aspect. It's suspenseful, sometimes funny and other [...]

    20. Thomas Prescott remembers the murders vividly. He never thought they got the killer and when more murders start, he knows he was right. This book is a mystery but I love the sharp wit of Thomas who brings humor to the dark story. He is stuck between two beautiful women as well as his wonderful sister who is temporarily blind. The mystery is well written and it gives you anger over Alex who keeps posting horrible stories in the paper (how can he still like her?) and sadness when the little girl d [...]

    21. This one is hard to rate, on one hand I liked Prescott but I think the actual story was a little convoluted and the ending felt rushed. Prescott is a jaded detective and a real smart-ass but I liked him, I liked him a lot. Sometimes he and the story were a little bit far fetched but none the less it was good. Pirog's writing style is different and a little tough to follow at times but gets easier as you go. I think he did a fantastic job writing the hero of the novel, Thomas Prescott. Good stuff [...]

    22. This serial killer liked to chop his victims into a variety of pieces. And he's targeting women Thomas Prescott knows. A former girlfriend, a student in his criminology class, and now possibly his sister. It's up to Thomas to find him and stop him if he can decipher the clues the clever killer is leaving him.This was a really good thriller with a killer that gave me chills. Enjoyed the authors writing style and there were even a couple of humorous moments that in no way detracted from the suspen [...]

    23. Characters are raw but capture you from the beginning. There were some twists that I didn't foresee that made it a really intriguing read. Enjoyed all the characters and the pace of the book. Will read more from this author. I'm wondering if there was a book before this, because it reads as if there is one and some background that I missed. Still it is a good book.

    24. I was able to overlook the editing/proofreading issues that others noted and enjoyed the book enough to go on to the next one. I like Thomas Prescott's humor even though it seemed a bit out of place at times. I'm looking forward to seeing how the stories progress. I think Nick is a promising author. I especially loved the little pug

    25. Thomas Prescott is a retired cop who is frequently asked to help the FBI in special cases. This involved a serial killer who killed and dismembered eight woman in one year. A book was published describing the murders and naming Prescott as the hero who solved the case. Not so. The killer is still at large.

    26. Honestly one of the best mystery thrillers I've read in a long time. Thomas Prescott is so different from your usual protagonist in a mystery novel. I loved his humor and snarkiness that I found myself laughing at most of it which is weird but also good. I'm thinking I'll enjoy reading more of his series.

    27. A thriller to thrill and petrified everyoneA mystery front start to finish. Who and where is the villain? How do the gory details get into the town newspaper as soon as the murders happen. Who will be the next woman to die and can Prescott figure it all out before he loses all his female family and acquaintances

    28. One fantastic ride. star cover to cover!Not only is this a wonderful thriller, but it is very funny. Thomas Prescott is a first rate characterfull of action, feelingd loads of fun. Thank you so very much Mr. Proof, you have a great blessing in a wonderful craft. God bless you.

    29. are you kidding me, if there would be 6 stars 6 stars it is !!!!Serious creepy serial killer story with so much humor from the main character ? Well organized killing with something to laugh in between?This is a very rare mix and very very good writing ! I loved it and finished the book easily in a day okay, I didn’t do much else ! No time 😉

    30. A laugh-out-loud multi-murder thriller. did THAT happen!?!?You know it's a good book when you keep thinking of other friends you've got to invite to read along and when, not even half way through the book, you're making happy plans to re-read it yourself. My first Pirog but it won't be my last!!!
