Pressestimmen

"The Chopping Block is a good edition to the Grimm canon, and Passarella expands upon the television show." - The Moon is a Dead World

"A gripping and fast-paced read that never flags or lolls unnecessarily. It's the kind of book you can pick up and get lost in, finishing in the wee hours without meaning to." - Horror Talk 

"The horror scenes are something out of a Stanley Kubrick movie." - Borg.com

"John Passarella clearly knows how to weave a tense thriller that’s appealing to both fans of the show and to new readers alike. The story is a great read with plenty of action and great dialogue. Passarella keeps you guessing as the plot unfolds, and there’s plenty of blood and carnage to go with all the suspense." - Ravenous Monster 

"An entertaining read for Grimm fans." - City of Films

"If you love Grimm, you’ll want to pick up The Chopping Block. It’ll give you some extra time with the characters and universe you know and love, and it’s just a great book!" - Three If By Space

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After the finding of human remains Nick, Hank and also Renard feel the pressure from the City Hall. And more and more people disappear, what seems highly related to the ongoing finding of bare human bones. Only one is for sure: whoever is behind this is butchering and cooking the victims. With what they have to deal with? A human cannibal or a Wesen? Working hard on the puzzle Nick can finally rule out the all-human cannibal. But with what kind of Wesen he has to deal with?

In the same time Juliette has to deal with the mysterious illness of a family dog which brings this dog into fatal danger. Can she keep the pet safe with Rosalee's help? And also Monroe is going through a hard time when his past shows up at the farmer's market ...

Unless the contradictonarity the hardest work for a reviewer is to write a review about a novel he/she loves. It is easy to count down the mistakes the author has done when you care about the book but not really love it. But if a novel is nearly perfect - well, that's really tough. You don't want to praise it too high, but you also cannot point on what's not there. You cannot give advices if there's nothing you can give this advice about And you always have to keep in mind that, especially if you know the writer, you can easily be put into a box yourself.

Well, one good thing, I don't know John Passarella. Nontheless I will definitely spend more time with his other works and also hope The Chopping Block won't be his last tie-in novel for Grimm. But still, there's a little problem between this novel and me: I simply fell in love with this book!

It is a pretty rare experience for me personally to "see" and "hear" during the reading.

Format: Taschenbuch
When a pile of human bones is discovered in a forest, severed and stripped of flesh, Portland Homicide Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin are put on the case. The two soon learn that the bones were cooked prior to being buried and the pair suspects that the killer is not human. More bones are found, but no one is able to figure out how the victims are chosen. The body count increases revealing bones from various ages, both genders, and multiple ethnicities.

The detectives turn to their friend, Monroe, who is a reformed Blutbad (basically a vegetarian werewolf) for help. Monroe recalls a story from his grandfather long ago about a group of upper crust and snobby cannibals who gather every twenty-five years to gorge themselves on human meat. The gorge fest lasts one month before all members disappear without a trace. Monroe has always believed the story to be an urban legend, but many signs are changing his mind. The three must act quickly to find and stop the slaughter, whether a killer is acting alone or with a group. Should they fail, many more people would die and many more massacres may happen in the future.

**** FOUR STARS! There is more happening than I dare reveal for fear of spoilers. Everything I state in my synopsis is either revealed to readers early on (in my opinion) or is pretty obvious. If you are not a fan of the television show, I do not believe that you will have any trouble what-so-ever. You will still be able to fully understand and enjoy the story and its plot. However, only people familiar with the show’s characters will appreciate the sub-stories involving the girlfriends of Nick and Monroe. Nick’s girlfriend, Juliette, is a vet who is trying to figure out why a family’s dog keeps going into kidney failure.

Personally, I have not watched every episode of the television show, but I have watched most of them. Therefore, I can honestly state that the author has managed to perfectly capture the personality of each individual character. This novel is an original story, never before seen on television or published.

John Passarella always delivers 23. Februar 2014
Von WS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mr. Passarella always takes tie-ins as seriously as any other novel, which makes his tie-ins a step above average. The one "complaint" for me -- and it's a matter of taste, more than a quality issue -- is that he tends to give equal weight to every element, which sometimes slows the pacing too much for my taste. Throw-away characters get the same lovingly detailed physical descriptions as vitally important characters. Scenes that would take a couple of seconds in an episode, just to orient the viewer and hint at the monster of the week, may be given a half, or even full chapter. So, while I enjoy his books greatly, I often find myself skipping past sections where too much time is being being spent on elements whose significance to the narrative doesn't warrant it.

Don't let that scare you off, though. John Passarella is the master of tie-ins!

Better Than The First 8. April 2014
Von Teresa Ramseur - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Better than The Icy Touch, which I loved, but left me scratching my head, I'll admit, I found Chopping Block to be the better read. The characters and plot were spot-on. Felt like an episode. However, those with sensitive stomachs may wish to approach with caution. Some of the scenes are a bit difficult to read. But as a fan of the show I found this to be an enjoyable and entertaining read. The author really did his research, and it shows. Hope there's more.

Not for the faint of heart, but spellbinding 29. März 2014
Von stumpgrinder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This book is not for the faint of heart, and with that said, I highly recommend it! My wife and I are hardcore Grimm fans and shared this book, and it became more of a race to see who finished it first (she won). I've read John Passarella's "Supernatural" books and already knew this author's style and I knew from the outset that this would be a killer book. I was not let down. This was a fantastic read. If you're a fan of the show this is a must read, and if you are not a fan, you will be! Enjoy!

this is by far the better of the two grimm novels released so far. The author makes your stomach turn and your imagination soar with every turn of the page... or screen...
