The Monstrumologist
review 1: This is the 2nd book in the series & it is just as good as the first. This time the Doctor & his assistant are off on a thrilling adventure to rescue an old friend. I don't like to over analyze my entertainment, especially books, but this brought back memories of watching scarey tv when I was a preteen. I love the characters, flaws & all, for they are mostly human. I look forward to reading more when I can get them in my sweaty little paws!
review 2: Another exciting delve into the mysterious realm of "monstrumology." I enjoyed this book as much as the first book in the series. I always seem to be able to count on Yancey for a quick monster fix.The only thing that bothers me about the author's style is the repetition of certain words. For example, Will Henry be
... moregins a number of sentences with the word "presently" which didn't bother me at first, but once I started noticing I couldn't stop. Also, he mentions the "peculiar funk of desperation" towards the end of the book and basically repeats the phrase in the first chapter of The Isle Of Blood when he has Kearns say: "...infused as it is with the funk of human suffering and despair." I know I am nit-picking here, but it did feel good to get that little bit of pointless annoyance out in the open. That being said, I do love the books, and I enjoy the juxtaposition of sci-fi and antiquated prose that the author is getting at. less
