    One thought on “Half the Blood of Brooklyn

    1. Carol.

      Well, just threaten a man, why can t you You make it all complicated like that and I sometimes don t know what I got to do to keep from getting slapped around I appreciate the benefit of the doubt and all, Joe, but really, man, unless I m high you really shouldn t count on me thinking too straight It s always nice to be clear when you are trying to get information.The third in the Joe Pitt series was a little harder to get into, but that could have been my lingering dyspepsia after a political t [...]

    2. Mohammed

      I had almost forgotten how good, ice cool the lean noir prose style of Huston was It is fun to read on it own, makes you forget at times you are reading vampire urban fantasy.Funny enough Joe Pitt is one of the best noir characters i have read, he is mean,nasty and ruthless Huston doesnt make him heroic and lame, he is very human in how un heroic he is Much interesting than Hank Thompson i read about in Huston noir series without supernatural element I thought the first book in the series was b [...]

    3. Stephanie

      I love this series This time Joe is sent over the river to visit other clans and try to recruit them into the Society He and Lydia, one of the Society higher ups, are on a mission to recruit a clan calling themselves The Freaks They arrive at their destination, a lonely stretch of Coney Island, to come upon a circus tent with the freakiest of freak shows in progress Turns out, these are the Freaks and they are truly freaky After the show Joe and Lydia try to meet with the ring master , after he [...]

    4. Paul

      Third in the Joe Pitt series 5 in total so seductive After finishing this, i felt like going straight on with 4 I m not a big fan of Vampires things that go bump, but Huston imbues his tales with an adroit Noir sensibility blending Noir Fantasy to create a violent, intriguing scenario.The Vampires don t have fangs, they drink their blood, as one would any other liquid, but they do need it to survive Crucifixes, garlic, Holy water, nada No effect on them A shot or three to the head or a decapitat [...]

    5. Kathy Davie

      Third in the Joe Pitt urban fantasy set in contemporary New York City.The StoryJoe s been cruising Doing the security gig for Terry Taking down the competition Then, I dunno, Terry gets ambitious, sees war coming and wants alliances Ya can t trust Terry He ll use up anyone to further his aims Don t let his laid back hippie style fool ya.Terry wants backup and he s not willing for a potential ally to cross over to the Coalition but the real story starts when he sends Joe and Lydia over to meet wi [...]

    6. Kevin

      I must be on a theme with my book choices lately This book completely changes the landscape so carefully established in the first 2 books of this series Status Quo What s that I love it when authors aren t afraid to change and alter their settings Too many find something that works and then milk it until it hasn t worked for far too long Charlie Huston doesn t have that problem This one changed all the rules.WARNING SPOILERS Joe Pitt must go to Brooklyn to see about bringing some minor groups in [...]

    7. Maggie K

      I really love this seriesThere were a few odd things out in this one As usual Joe is having a really bad day, and is being forced to deal with stuff he doesnt give a crap about when he should be helping Evie view spoiler He is already really crabby about thinking if he should give her the Vyrus, and then he hears someone advise him to think about what you love before making any decisionsd suddenly the crazy factor is on.I was bothered by the jewish clan, though Im not sure whyAmanda and Sela are [...]

    8. Gabriel

      Joe Pitt is a vampire He works security for one of many clans of vampires on Manhattan He s disliked by just about every vampire, even those in the clan he works for He s a jerk, is quick to verbally abuse whoever is around and is violent to boot He s also tired of being jerked around by his current boss and the boss of the other main clan on Manhattan But he s on a leash and that leash is beginning to tighten again.This is pulp styled detective noir with a dark edge that is too much fun to read [...]

    9. Joshua

      Simply flat out balls out fun Book 3 in Charlie Huston s Joe Pitt universe Huston does a nice job filling in people who haven t read the previous two books on his world Does it help to have read the first two books Sure, but it also isn t entirely necessary.Things get kicked up a notch in this volume Joe Pitt finally starts to stray outside of Manhattan and hit up another NY borough, Brooklyn There he meets Jewish vampires, coney island freak shows, and biblical breeding camps Stereotypes run ab [...]

    10. Rage

      the lone wolf protagonist, who turns down all offers and insults everyone, never makes sense to me you always know that he ll be right in the end, that the people he s flipping off are eventually going to be revealed as even corrupt and evil than already suspected , but it means that along the way they take a lot punishment than I could tolerate but I guess it s different when you re a vampire hmm anyway, I read 2 in the series like four years ago, so it took me a while to figure out who every [...]

    11. Carol

      Joe Pitt has finally done what he said he never would He joined a clan The Society It is a steady source of income and food But all he really wants is to save his dying girlfriend Evie who has full blown AIDS and lies dying in a hospital bed He has a chance to take her to see Daniel, the head of the Enclave Clan who can tell which humans can accept the vyrus and which ones can not But that window of opportunity will end at dawn when Daniel takes a voluntary walk in the sunlight to test the starv [...]

    12. Shanon

      This was the first book in the Joe Pitt series that I read instead of listening to the audiobook It was a much difficult read than listen because of the voice in the book Joe Pitt other characters in the book speak in a manner that is fairly foreign to me and it takes me a minute to decipher it when I read it Listening to it was much simpler for me.I continue to enjoy the story of Joe and his miss adventures I like the turn with Evie and am looking forward to reading about the world Huston has [...]

    13. Rashida

      This is modern New York where vampires come out at night They are like you and me but infected with a virus that feeds off of blood and makes it host super strong and fast healing You ve got different clans in different neighborhoods and your hero, who doesn t want to belong to any of them Because our hero is a man of action than diplomacy, he s currently head of security for the Society and tasked with finding out why all of sudden vampires from Brooklyn are appearing in Manhattan So, no, it s [...]

    14. Ian Oliver Camiwet

      Joe Pit 3 is better than the previous two books Huston continues the story of Joe, and now he s the chief of security for the society He also introduces some interesting variation on vampires In the Brooklyn side, there are no organizations, only clans, or gangs, and the strongest among them are the Jewish vamps Also, Huston makes the conflicts fast, and bloody with a very good twist in the end, making you crave for the next book So, read this and be surprised, I know I did.

    15. Ian Cockerill

      The characters are good, the world is interesting but this is the one in the series where the lack of punctuation just made the whole thing too much of a pain to read.I know it might be cool to ignore speech marks, but actually punctuation isn t that bad an idea, it helps you know whose talking, if someone s talking, who s saying whatI probably will return but I ll need to be in the right mood for the choppy lack of writing in order to be able to appreciate the ideas and story underneath.

    16. Joy

      So I really liked this which is hard to find in the third part of a series Yes, Joe Pitt goes to Brooklyn and its laughably stereotyped but the larger story is getting fleshed out and Huston brings back some unfinished plot ties from the first book that I was yearning for with the second.Not fine literature by any means but quick fun violent read I know I ll be starting the next book soon.

    17. Donna

      Joe Pitt s girlfriend is dying of AIDS Meanwhile, Terry thinks its important that he check out what the Freaks from Coney Island want and Joe is soon under attack again.Trouble is he is worried about Evie and most of his attention is focused on getting back to the hospital to see her and with trying to decide if it will kill Evie if he infects her with the Vyrus.

    18. Tasula

      Another great installment in the Joe Pitt vampire series Pitt, who is always in trouble, is intriguing to me because he doesn t react to situations in typical ways and never takes the easy way out Book is full of action and mayhem and political intrigue Really good.

    19. Riley

      Charlie Huston writes an easy to read yet enticing book using a common theme of a Vampire virus It s a dark book full of violence and backstabbing, but it s mostly only vampires that die This book kept me up til 3 30 to finish it.

    20. Peter Bradley

      Please give my review a helpful vote review R2QM3CSUrban Fantasy Gritty Noire Rogue VampireJoe Pitt is a vampire, or, rather, a vampyre The y is because vampirism the desire need for blood, the strength and durability, the eternal youth is caused by a virus, called the vyrus In Manhattan, the infected live in the shadows and are organized into clans that police their territories, making sure that the human herd is not over exploited and that the secret of the vyrus does not get out where it can [...]

    21. Laura

      I enjoy this series because it is very noir in it s style and has some clever details that keep me interested You see a little bit of the politics in this one and I really like how the author mixes a little bit of very classic power struggles with the pessimism of a noir novel and the bits of supernatural Really this would be a good book even without the supernatural elements, but the author does a great job of blending them in so well that you could probably read it with or without those thing [...]

    22. Duncan Mandel

      There s only so much room on the Island, only so much blood, and Manhattan s Vampyre Clans aren t interested in sharing So when the Vyrus infected dregs of New York s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges, the Clans want to know why Bad luck for PI Joe Pitt Joe used to be a Rogue, work off his own dime, pick his own gigs, but tight times and a terminally ill girlfriend pushed him to the renegade Society Clan Now he has all the cash and blood he needs, but at a steep price The price to [...]

    23. Gary

      Comparisons and superlatives be damned there simply isn t a talented writer of American fiction today than the hip, irreverent, and ever so clever Charlie Huston This guy could write the recipe for a tuna casserole and make it a page turner Always one to shun convention and propriety, Huston rips another scorcher free of distracting quotation marks or chapters Back is vampyre leg breaker Joe Pitt in this third installment of Huston s nightmare fantasy of the undead of Manhattan, another literar [...]

      3 Joe Pitt paranormal noir mystery Joe is a vampire, infected with the Vyrus, and now is the head of security for one of the vampire gangs that control New York Gone is his carefree life as a Rogue, answering only to himself but also gone is the constant scrabbling for a living, for having a decent supply of blood Terry, his boss and the head of the Society clan, is trying to keep the balance between the clans and maybe expand his membership a bit and asks Joe to protect Lydia his assistant in a [...]

    25. Robert Cohen

      This is the third is a 5 book series centering around the character Joe Pitt, a Vampyre unlike any you ve ever encountered I could review any of the five books, and have the same comments, so reviewing the middle book seems sensible.Remember Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs The violence and blood quotient of the Joe Pitt series makes those movies seem like The Lion King If you are put off by gore and extreme violence, these are not the books for you.Here s what you can expect from this series no [...]

    26. Matthew

      Given how brutal, fast paced, and exciting the two previous Joe Pitt adventures, Already Dead and No Dominion, were Half the Blood of Brooklyn was a bit of a disappointment.The pieces are still there The main character, independently minded and often times violent Joe Pitt is still gritty, vulgar, and seemingly without regard for anyone The plotting and politicking of the numerous rival vampyre clans are still unfolding and providing nice plot twists Also, the surrounding cast of characters prov [...]
