Publisher's Summary

An increasingly crippled Hank struggles to keep the various factions of Belvaille in check after the collapse of the Colmarian Confederation.

Hank, as Supreme Kommilaire and Secretary of City, has several hundred police to try to maintain order among the millions of inhabitants on the space station while simultaneously preparing for Belvaille's first ever election.

He thinks it is an impossible task. Every year the city and even the galaxy falls further into chaos as he succumbs to the debilitating effects of his mutation.

With economic turmoil everywhere, a dirty election in the works, and the galaxy's foremost assassin hunting him, Hank has to decide if he can save Belvaille. Or if it's even worth saving.

NOTE: Sequel to Hard Luck Hank - Screw the Galaxy and Hard Luck Hank - Basketful of Crap

Awesome! But!

Another excellent book and everything however! There is a weird High pitch noise in the Background whenever they speak. Not annoying enough to Be distracting but noticable

Compared to the first two...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you're reading the series, then yes, but don't expect it to be as good as the first two.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The book seems like a really long series of gang wars; nearly the entire plot is wrapped up in the last two chapters. Very uneven.

Which scene was your favorite?

Hank being Hank carries the book.

Do you think Hard Luck Hank: Prince of Suck needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Hank is a great character. The first two books were great; this one, less so. Hank needs to get back to his hard-scrabble life of quasi-PI work.

Really funny

I saw other reviews that said that this book was good, but don't expect great writing. I disagree. The author writes the story from Hank's viewpoint, narration and all, and NEVER breaks character. Liam Owen's performance reading this book is so perfect that I found myself speaking like Hank throughout the day. He really understood the character and his delivery was incredibly funny. Better yet...this series continues and gets better as it goes along. I've read the first three books and can't wait til the others are available on audio.

Thank you to Steven Campbell, to Liam Owen, and to Audible. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this series.

Ok but not as good as previous stories.

Not as good as the previous novels. Plot was weak and the reveal of the main antagonist was about as u exciting as it comes. Disappointing story. Narrator was awesome though.

Prince of Suck - Sucked a Little Too Hard

Time has pasted, across the universe civilizations crumble, and Hank is slowly solidifying. Abandoned by people he thought were his friends, left holding the bag of holding Belvaille together, and dying more often each day. Hank's life is really sucking. I know Hank's life is supposed to suck but I'm expecting vacuum cleaner level suckage and I got "Space, the Final Frontier" vacuum. I had a hard time finishing this installment because it seemed the story even had trouble moving against the extreme suckage. Unfortunately, there was nothing in the story that created enough momentum to break free of the story's suckage.

I just can't recommend this book to anyone. I mean I liked Hank, obviously, since this is the third book featuring him I've read, but I don't need to witness an unending series of depressing incidents dumping on poor Hank, I don't find it entertaining.

Funny

The series just keeps getting funnier and funnier. Steven Campbell has a real talent for comedy and plotting a good story. As for the reading, I will forever associate Liam Owen's rendition as the voice of Hank! Great fun and highly recommended!

Hanks butt!...

Liam Owen is a cherry atop this sundae. Though I feel there was too many nuts. Would love a fourth.

Poor Audio

If your a fan of the series you will enjoy the latest installment as long as you don't listen in the car. Hank's narration is set to a good level for listening, but the other characters are all set to a much lower sound level. The audio really needs to be leveled out to make this an enjoyable listen.

Another Enjoyable Hank Adventure

Where does Hard Luck Hank: Prince of Suck rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's near the top and I listen to a lot of titles.

What other book might you compare Hard Luck Hank: Prince of Suck to and why?

Other than the other Hard Luck Hank books...along the lines of the D-List Supervillain series. Because they both have interesting main characters and infuse humor with the action and storyline.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this novel's twists and turns, and of course, Hank. He's not exactly the same as the first to novels, but after what he's survived, that's to be expected.

As always Campbell managed to introduce a wide gamut of events that at first appeared unconnected. Having listened to the two previous novels in the series, I was able to guess some of the connections that got tied up in the end.
