review 1: So, Beat the Reaper is not for everyone. It is quite crass, has a good deal of language, though often used comically, and revolves around a ex mafia, martial arts expert who flies by the seat of his pants maiming and killing as he goes. So if you love a fast paced ride, that keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you laugh once in a while, this is it. If you're not into being a sweet ninja dude, who wins the day in a pseudo fictional environment, then perhaps this is not the tale for you. Boys will love it!
review 2: Wow. What a visceral, fun, roller coaster of a book. This is what it feels like when you don't want to put a book down until you finish it, but then again....you don't want to finish it because that means the fun stops. I will warn you
... morethat the book is graphic with some intense violence and medical nastiness, but I did the movie theater equivalent of covering my eyes. Lots of interesting explorations into side subjects, but still well written. I hope Josh Bazell writes more. less

Audacious, gory fun here. Not highbrow but I enjoyed it and boy does it move.
Incredibly entertaining & a book you'll finish in just a few sittings.
Really funny and reads like a bullet.
