Book Description

Welcome to Toontown, the world where cartoon characters – Toons – live side-by-side with humans. In his cult classic and highly praised novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, author Gary K. Wolf created a wonderfully skewed – and totally believable – world compounded of equal parts Raymond Chandler, Lewis Carroll, and Walt Disney. This comically brilliant and cleverly crafted sequel continues the story begun in that book and in the blockbuster Walt Disney/Steven Spielberg Academy Award winning film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The whole Roger Rabbit cast is back: Roger Rabbit, Eddie Valiant, Baby Herman, and of course Jessica Rabbit, the sultriest woman ever “drawn that way.” They’re up to their old tricks in a whimsical new mystery by Toontown’s original creator, the man who first brought these delightful creatures to life.
Who P-p-p-plugged Roger Rabbit? opens with a call from Roger to hard-boiled private eye Eddie Valiant. Roger suspects that Jessica is baking carrot cakes for movie heartthrob Clark Gable. And the scandal threatens to rob Roger of the Rhett Butler role in the soon-to-be-filmed Toon musical comedy Gone With The Wind. Investigating Jessica’s alleged affair, valiant Eddie finds adultery turning to murder. In no time flat, he’s up to his fedora in a nasty web of deceit, intrigue, and Hollywood corruption including reports from all over of a swindling, cheating, blackmailing…..Roger!!?!?!
Some of the wildest creatures seen in fiction (and real life) abound: Police Sergeant Bulldog Bascomb, a full-blooded hound who’s got his razor-sharp teeth sunk into Eddie’s case; Heddy, Eddie’s sister and possible prime suspect; Kirk Enigman, a very “shadowy” guy: and Joellyn, Jessica’s twin sister, shockingly different from her glamour girl sibling in one small way! As if this isn’t enough, human luminaries run fast and furious. In addition to Gable, David O. Selznick, Carole Lombard (Baby Herman’s latest plaything) and Vivien Leigh (Valiant’s dalliance?) all play roles.
No question about it. Something is really p-p-p-popping in Toontown!

2.0 out of 5 stars More like "Who Wrote This Crap?" 1 Oct. 2013
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Jumpin' Jippers is this bad!

Gary K. Wolf's original novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit was drastically overhauled before it was made into the classic 1988 movie. In his novel Roger was a comic-strip star who was murdered, while a slowly eroding duplicate helps hard boiled detective Eddie Valiant solve the case. Vastly different from the movie. This sequel, this awful novel (or a "Nawfel" for short) cannot decide if it wants to be a sequel to either, so it sits on the fence and is stuck halfway.

In "Who P-P-P Plugged Roger Rabbit?" (a stupid, annoying title) Valiant is hired by David O. Selznick to find a paperweight stolen from his desk in the midst of casting Gone With the Wind (the movie was made in 1939, 8 years before the book is set, but that's not the only historical inaccuracy). Wolf plays fast an loose with history which comes across as confusing and lazy. But that's just the very beginning of this novel's numerous problems. The plot is muddled, horribly written, full of holes, and borders on nonsensical gibberish. Wolf has absolutely no clue how to introduce or describe characters in a fluent, concise way, and over-describes almost everything. The story moves at a snail's pace, and if it that wasn't bad enough the dialogue is honestly among the worst I have ever read.

Here's a example:

"Roger, I don't like Toons," I told him.
"P-p-p-lease, Eddie I am in real trouble," the Rabbit said in a word balloon that appeared near my head. It was brown in color with unusual lettering...

Seriously? Of all the nuances to carry over from the (now rather obscure) original novel the word balloons did not get ditched? If Roger is supposed to be a cartoon and movie star in this novel why on Earth would he need word balloons?

The movie is one of my favourites of all time so I was keen to read the book that inspired it, which I enjoyed (although it had it's problems), this isn't as good as either of them. It doesn't try to fit into either continuity but tries to be it's own half way house. Definately worth a read but don't expect too much from it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended 1 Jun. 2014

Same old same old - worn out premise. Tired and without continuity. Time to move on to pastures new instead of relying on a tired out film tie-in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Kindle Version Needs Work 22 April 2010
By T. L. Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The sequel is not as good as the original book, I will admit. It's a weird blend of the original book and the movie, so that does get a bit confusing. Technically, the original book didn't leave much room for a sequel that starred Roger Rabbit. It also takes place at least 20 years before Eddie met Roger, even though events are after the original book. But all the inconsistencies were at least explained away in the opening letter by Eddie. So, just don't try to think of that, relax, and enjoy.

As for the Kindle version, it has pretty bad formatting. It's presented as one long text file -- no cover pages, no separation of chapters, etc. The worst part is that the entire text is tabbed over, which is surprisingly not very noticeable on the smaller iPhone app screen, but very, very noticeable on my larger Kindle 1 screen. What is very noticeable on all screens is the tabbing throws off all instances of centered text, which causes all centered text to look almost like it's right-aligned, especially when viewing on the iPhone app.

Still, it's an inexpensive buy and a good story, so I'd still recommend it on the book alone. It's great to finally see these books back in print somehow. I just wish they'd look better.

I hope someday we might actually be able to see the third, unpublished Roger Rabbit book (which as I understand was being held from publication until the movie sequel was released, which never made it too far off the drawing board).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great 19 Aug. 2012

I was looking forward to this book after reading the first, and I have to say I was disappointed. In the end I would just read the first book (who censored roger rabbit )and pass on this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars Roger Rabbit rules 5 Aug. 2014
By Coyote Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book. The movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit was better but this was a really great book! I wish they would have made a movie out of it as a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I like how Roger became a father in this book. I really love Roger Rabbit. Me and him are a lot alike because we both lime to make people laugh, and I wish Roger was my father.
5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than the original 7 Jun. 2014

twists, turns, old Hollywood? who could ask for more in this hilarious sequel? such a shame it was not made into a film. would love to have seen how it would have played out on the big screen and if Joellyn really reminded me of tinkerbell more than in just my imagination as I read this book. if you're a fan of the movie, read this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars What Who framed Roger Rabbit is based on. 3 April 2014
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com

For fans of the movie there are some comparisons in the book but not very many. This one has a more adult nature to it and rather than being based on cartoons, the book is based on comic strips in the newspaper.
