For some reason I found this book a lot more enjoyable to read than the first one in the series. Maybe it was because I read this one at home rather than at work during lunch hour, maybe my brain was just in the right mood for a quick trip to Hell, or maybe the story was actually better. I'm pretty sure that it was more situational than the actual content of the book (I still found the footnotes super annoying, since they didn't add much to the story), but I definitely found this an easy and engaging read. Obvious Boswell, Samuel's adorable little daschund, is still my favourite character, but the ornery posse of dwarfs gave him a good run in terms of character development! ( )

Sequel to The Gates. Funny and horrifying and almost as good as the first one. ( )

This was a fun book to read. Monty Python humor prevalent throughout. I like the footnotes added throughout the book. Great for whiling away the time. ( )

The second book in John Connolly’s witty trilogy begins right in Hell itself. The last time we were entertained by young hero Samuel Johnson’s adventures in The Gates, the action took place in Samuel’s own hometown of Biddlecombe. Now, the forces of evil are looking to renew the battle on their own turf-this time the major objective is revenge against the boy and his clever dachshund companion. It doesn’t take long for the plot to rocket Samuel and his pet straight into a landscape that is more dysfunctional than terrifying. Of course, the plot is foiled again by misadventure, as other humans are mistakenly dragged along with our heroes. Some familiar characters reappear from the first book, including intrepid policemen Rowan and Peele and Samuel’s old friend and demon, Nurd. Joining them this time are three delinquent gentlemen whose comedic value is somewhat undercut by the rather un-PC characterization of their achondroplasia. They are incorrigible entertainers that embrace their “Dwarf” personas in a way reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits. Let’s just say that for a novel attractive to younger readers, there is an awful lot of partying going on. Connelly’s depiction of Hell’s different locales and social structure displays an amusingly familiar collection of bureaucratic and political foibles. The Infernals is more sentimental and less satirical than the Gates, but is just as loaded with hilarious action, amusing (and informative!) footnotes, and snarky asides. I found this sequel to be very enjoyable, not as good as the first, but still definitely worth a quick read. I am curious about the last of the series, the Creeps, and look forward to learning how Connelly concludes the series. ( )

The Infernals, the second book in the Samuel Johnson series, find Samuel in trouble. After preventing the demon invasion from Hell in the Gates, the demon Mrs. Abernathy is seeking revenge. She wants to get her hands on Samuel, and when Samuel and his faithful dachshund, Boswell, are pulled through a portal into Hell, she gets her chance. In addition to pulling Samuel in Hell—Mrs. Abernathy has also pulled a host of other characters into Hell including Sergeant Rowan and Constable Peel, a quartet of dwarves and an ice-cream man. In addition to these new characters we also reconnect with Nurd, Samuels demon friend from the Gates. I loved this book as I did with the Gates. It is a combination of horror and humor, and some of the best parts are the chapter titles and footnotes (which provide a interesting mix of facts and snark). 5 out of 5 stars. ( )
