Crazy Like the Foxes (The Long-Timer Chronicles: Book 2) PDF ebook download I really enjoyed the premise of Crazy Like the Foxes by G.M. Lupo: "Long-timers" have the ability to heal rapidly and age slowly. Charles and Renee Fox, the novel's protagonists, are approximately 1,700 years old and have played a role in a lot of important points in human history–-the fall of Rome, William the Conqueror, the War of the Roses, da Vinci, Rembrandt, Shakespeare, Henrik Ibsen, John Wilkes Booth, Jack the Ripper. While the novel tended to focus on the social implications of being over a millennium old while most of the people around you would be lucky to live a century, the historical aspect was the most fun for me. I also appreciated how, for the most part, Charles and Renee's ridiculous historical connections weren't thrown in the reader's face because the characters have the seen-it-all intelligence and nonchalant attitude appropriate to their age and experience.

While I enjoyed the narrative of Charles and Renee and their children, the tertiary storylines barely kept my interest. I admit this may be because Crazy Like the Foxes was the second part of The Long-Timer Chronicles series, of which I have not read the first.

Finally, amnesia, in any form, is not a storyline I care to spend time reading.

Some other notes:
1. I would have appreciated if the book, although it is only 242 pages, would have been broken up into more than two chapters.
2. While they weren't as distracting and frequent as other books by independent authors I have read, there were numerous punctuation and grammar errors in the book. [Mr. Lupo, if you need an editor, I will work for cheap.]

Overall, I liked the book enough to find myself considering going back to read the first in the series and perhaps await a third.

***I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads Giveaways.***
