    1. Bill Fitzhugh’s second comic thriller featuring bug-killer Bob Dillon has more twists and turns than a cockroach eluding a slipper. Bob and his sidekick, retired assassin Klaus Muller, are working in Oregon on developing an environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical pest control in the form of genetically engineered insects from the assassin bug family. Short of cash, they turn to a venture capitalist for funding, which is a front connected to the DOD’s DARPA, whose representative want [...]

    2. A sequel to Fitzhugh's hilarious book, Pest Control. Unfortunately, nowhere near as entertaining from a plot perspective and without all of the clever musical references too. Bob Dillon and his new partner, former assassin Klaus Muller, are trying to breed bugs for a green solution to pesticides. The government hires them as fall guys for a religious plot to curtail moral excesses, especially in Hollywood.

    3. Bob Dillon, an entomologist who breeds assassin bugs for environmentally friendly pest control, is mistaken for a killer named The Exterminator. Because of this, a Bolivian drug lord puts a 10 million dollar contract on his head. This attracts many would be assassins to kill Bob including Klaus Muller. Through some really strange sequence of events, Klaus defends Bob from the other assassins and the two work together to kill off the every one trying to kill Bob. They later fake Bob's death and c [...]

    4. I've been waiting YEARS for a sequel to "Pest Control" and I couldn't be happier. This one was right in my wheelhouse. In fact, if I hadn't recently friended the author on facebook, I would've sworn he found inspiration on my page. All my favorite talking points are here: the religious Right-wing bloviator, "Matt Christopher", host of "Hard Heads" on MSCBN, and a funeral-protesting group of Baptist whackjobs. Bravo, Bill Fitzhugh. Bob Dillon (not the singer) and Klaus are my favorite exterminato [...]

    5. Zany and captivating is how this book came across for me, but others might call it too silly and absurd for words. Great story about as far fetched as you can imagine, but everything is woven together tightly and comes out as logical multiple lines of the story. I will look for more of Fitzhugh's work. This is certainly just for fun reading at its best.

    6. Meh. I just wasn't as interested in this one. Pest Control took a while to get into, but I enjoyed it once it started moving. I started the Exterminators with enthusiasm, but I only managed to push through to the end because I don't like leaving things undone.

    7. Different from Pest Control, but still a lot of fun.

    8. I'd forgotten just how funny Bill Fitzhugh could be. Now if he would skip the movies and concentrate on novels!

    9. There are a few reasons why I can only give this book three stars, although I want to give it four stars.First off, let me be positive. The same humor and excellent writing that I expect from this author were present in this book. I laughed a lot and always looked forward to the next time I could find the time to read it. I haven't really enjoyed his last few novels because I thought he was going off in a direction with his plots and characters that I didn't find particularly engaging or funny. [...]

    10. I thought Pest Control was great fun and was clever with it. The Exterminators, which is set six years later, has the same style and wit, but the plotting was not quite so spot on, with a couple of loose threads (such as French assassin whose plotline kind of goes nowhere), a couple of nonsensical bits (at least to me, such as the CIA agent’s actions), and a less fluid flow. That said, it is still very clever and well executed in parts -- the threads and explanation around genetic engineering, [...]

    11. I am easy to please and this book made me smile. A crazy concoction of murder and science written with a broad sense of humor. The author poked fun at everything from talk radio to crazy Christian cults to Hollywood to the CIA. This book won't be remembered as one of the great novels but what's wrong with a fun read?

    12. Despite letting his hatred of the religious right come out in the book, Bill Fitzhugh still produced a very funny book. He worked for years on this sequel to Pest Control, in which Bob Dillon deveolps lethal assassin bugs for the government. Meanwhile, real assassins are out to get Bob and his friend Klaus.

    13. This was definitely a different read for me. I picked this up from the library on a whim, based solely on the title. Overall it was okay. It was written in a little different style than what I was expecting but the story seemed to flow nicely. I might go back and read the first story just so I can maybe understand some of the history between some of the main characters.

    14. Multi-stranded and very funny, spoofing the government, fundamentalist Christians, Hollywood.d many more. Fitzhugh can turn a phrase and create a totally unexpected plotline. My favorite? An assassin arrives in Los Angeles and, before he can find his target, he is fingered as a screenwriter/action hero and subjected to plastic surgery to make him the next George Clooney.

    15. Sequel to Pest Control, one of my favorites. This follow-up is not as good as the first book. I was disappointed with the story and the characters I loved so much in the first book. Not very many laugh-out-louds here.

    16. Killer story.I chose this book because I liked his first book, Pest Control, and had a few giggles. I enjoyed the comedy aspect and good natured tone of the writing. I would recommend it for a day of lite, entertaining whimsy, teenage to adult.

    17. Not quite as good or as funny as Pest Control. It started slow, but got better as it went along after all the characters were fully flushed out and the plot got going.

    18. I normally enjoy Fitzhugh's sense of humor but I just wasn't into it this book. I think things got derailed too often by: a) Latin naming terminology, b) scientific sciencey stuff, c) Christian schisms.

    19. First off: read Pest Control before this one. It will enhance your experience. I loved Pest Control and thoroughly enjoyed following some zany characters through further adventures. It's the end of the world as we know it

    20. Not as good as the first book but still very funny.

    21. Shades of Donald Westlake, Fitzhugh's Bob Dillon is the quintessential unlikely hero. Who else could make a hero out of a man who kills bugs for a living?

    22. A fun, easy read. A mystery-style novel written with a humor that reminds me of some of the Dave Barry novels.

    23. Like early Fitzhugh so much better. The humor and irony just aren't there anymore.

    24. Not compelling enough to stick with

    25. Crazy bookloved the hilarious battle at the end between the various Christian factions. Great satire.

    26. Stranger than I thought in the beginning but picked up. Will have to read more Fitzhugh to see if I continue with him.

    27. Never got anywhere up to greatness of "Pest Control", plot weak and predictable, nowhere near as funny and a let down of an ending.

      Reply

    28. Screwball humor. Good for fans of Carl Hiassen, Tim Dorsey and Christopher Moore.

    29. Bill Fitzhugh is even funnier than Carl Hiaasen at times. I loved this book.
