Publisher's Summary

Surviving 60,000 years takes cunning and more than a little luck. But in the 21st century, Adam confronts new dangers - someone has found out what he is, a demon is after him, and he has run out of places to hide. Worst of all, he has had entirely too much to drink.
Immortal is a first person confessional penned by a man who is immortal, but not invincible. In an artful blending of sci-fi, adventure, fantasy, and humor, Immortal introduces us to a world with vampires, demons and other magical creatures, yet a world without actual magic.
At the center of the book is Adam.
Adam is a 60,000 year old man. He doesn't age or get sick, but is otherwise entirely capable of being killed. His survival has hinged on an innate ability to adapt, his wits, and a fairly large dollop of luck. He makes an excellent guide through history, when he's sober.

Original and exciting ideas delivered in a boring box

I really liked the beginning of the story but about half way through I realised that not a lot had happened and I was starting to get bored. The fact that the guy likes to drink gets a bit tedious, he doesn't do anything fun when he is drunk. Just reminisces constantly, which is what most alcoholics do I guess. The back stories and anecdotes get a bit tiresome after a while and the main story plays second fiddle for some time. The writing style can be a bit laborious at times: constantly over explaining where little to none is needed. Also, there were several sections which had no need to be in the book, they may have even been full chapters and they didn't add anything. The dialogue could be terrible at times with forced attempts at humour. There were good points, some nice zany touches, interesting and entertaining ideas for characters and I really like the overall concept, just needs a good editor on board to chop out the tedious stuff. The narrator is a good narrator, but I think he doesn't suit the story. The protagonist is meant to be physically 34, but the narrator is over 60. This adds to the annoying interruptions in that it feels that a rambling old favourite uncle has just, yet again, interrupted the story to tell a vaguely amusing but tangential anecdote. I liked the beginning and the final finale, but the middle three fifths could really be better.
