Everybody’s Talking

It seems like a lot of people are talking about the new book in the week since it came out. Here’s a quick rundown, in no particular order:

S.C. Hickman wrote a quite detailed and analytical review — contains spoilers, so beware if you haven’t read Armageddon House yet:

Jason White, YouTube reviewer, shows off his copy of Armageddon House and mentions enjoying the book, as far as he’s gotten.

Another YouTube book reviewer, Well Read Beard, mentions Armageddon House around the 3:30 mark. He says he’s excited to read it and it’s his first experience with Undertow or my writing.

The book has racked up some very nice Goodreads ratings and reviews already:

Des Lewis is doing one of his always-enjoyable Real-Time Reviews of the book. If you haven’t seen these before, Des posts regularly as he reads through the book, often posting once per story or per chapter. He just started Armageddon House two days ago, so I look forward to seeing this unfold.

The most in-depth review has come from Gordon B. White on The Outer Dark podcast — but you have to listen, rather than read it!

Here are a few other bloggers whose reviews of Armageddon House I’ve already mentioned here, but I’ll include them again for the sake of having everything together.

I’ve also seen lots of comments here and there around the internet, so lots of people reading it and commenting informally, which is fantastic. Further, I’ve heard from several people who are preparing to give the book some attention, one way or another, so my hope is that the momentum will continue to build!

If I’ve missed any reviews, let me know. My thanks to everyone who has given Armageddon House their attention, especially those who have taken the time to help spread the word.
