Review: Road trip of the living dead - Mark Henry


With her zombie gal pal Wendy and vampy sidekick Gil, celebrity party girl Amanda Feral is ready to take a big bite out of Seattle's supernatural nightlife. But what's a zombie chick to do when her "Mommie Dearest" gets sick? If you're Amanda Feral, you can either ignore the wicked old witch--or bury the past by visiting Ethel before she kicks it.
Packing their stiletto pumps and plasma into a sketchy rattrap on wheels that used to be a Winebago, Amanda, Wendy, and Gil hit the highway. Of course, they'll have to navigate past some neo-Nazi skinheads, a horny dust devil, a hunky werewolf cop, and an unsightly horde of Kmart shoppers. But for this glamorous gang of ghouls, this trip is about to take a dangerous detour that could give road kill a brand new meaning. . 

My thoughts:
What went wrong? I liked book 1, even when she ate people, but here, I was just lost. I just found myself sitting up and saying what? all the time. Maybe it was me, tired, not interested, maybe I should have put it down. But as it was now it was one big what? How did that happen? Excuse me?

It still was semi funny and weird, and then I have nothing more to say. I was confused! What can I write in a review then?

Conclusion:
'I was going back and forth between a 2 and a 1. But I just wished the book to be over so I could get out of the maze in my head. It's a shame, but I can't say I like the book then can I?

  1. You liked book one even when she ate people? WHAT? It sounds like your experience with a sequel went as well as mine today which was a total NOT!

  3. I find all the covers in this series seriously outdated, Blodeuedd. It's a bizarre mix of 80s and 90s, don't you think? I have to admit I couldn't get through book #1, it grossed me out too much :)

  4. I liked the book summary as it sounded like it would be a great romp but the whole eating people turns it off for me.

  6. Zombies are not my thing at all, but it does sound like fun. Still, if you could not find a story line or something, I am not going to try it.
