(Book) Bones by Mark Wheaton

83

I kind of like dry humor and oddities (like the whole funyun scene cracked me up for some reason, yeah, so a kid died, whatever, he scored some funyons!). I’m not so much for books that are so gory they make you wince. I like a good story.

This novella was perfect for me because it met all of those criteria. It’s definitely not for the hardcore horror readers and if you like slapstick, this probably isn’t either, but it was intriguing that it was written from the dog’s perspective much of the time.

Not as good as Last Tuesday story-line wise, but fun nonetheless. A great Halloween-ish read!
