Gil's All Fright Diner

Gil's All Fright Diner - A. Lee Martinez Will review later, but allow me to tease you with this:ZOMBIE COWSI had some issues with this book, but it was also one of the rare books where I felt it was sort of okay to let some things slide. Why? Because when a book is about: zombies (human) zombies (bovine) teen sorceresses determined to end the world horny teen minions Ancient Gods tentacled hell beasts ghouls graveyard guardians (ghosts) dead terriers (ghosts) determined mini-golfers (ghosts) obese werewolves (main character) balding vampires (main character) spectres in a magic eight ball a diner designed to end the world mail order hoodoo catalogues* and a tiny, tiny town with more paranormal activity than just about anywhere (see Law of Anomalous Phenomena Attraction**)I guess it's understandable that some of the actual writing may fall by the wayside. Maybe? It is a lot to juggle.Alright, let's be honest. This is not a book you go into thinking it's going to be great literature. And you wouldn't be wrong. It was a little like reading Shaun of the Dead or a Scary Movie script. It was silly and slapsticky and fun. There definitely needed to be a better copy editor, and the characters may have been a bit flat, but they are all memorable, the entire ridiculous cast of them.But I digress...The rest of the review, + some silly bonus material, can be found here
