Book Review-Monsterland-Michael Phillip Cash

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


Michael Phillip Cash is a master at word imagery--to read any one of his books (and I have read all eleven of them!!)will make you feel as though you are there-in the middle of the action. This novel was no exception!! I read it in one sitting--shivering at what was happening as the world as we know it was almost changed forever by a psychopathic megalomaniac who had convinced all that he was going to save the WORLD by putting the sick and undesirable people in 7 theme parks around the world-all to open simultaneously-for their and the general populations good. But what was his real reason? Would our high school friends be okay--would they all emerge from Monsterland the same as they entered it that fateful night?

About the Book: (from the back of the book)

WELCOME TO THE NEW THEME PARK

MONSTERLAND

THE SCARIEST PLACE ON EARTH

All guests can interact with real vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by actual werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.

Wyatt, Melvin and Howard, three unpopular high school friends are stuck in Copper Valley, California. Nerdy Howard Drucker is oblivious to social cues. Melvin is an oddball outcast, and Wyatt is in love with the unattainable Jade--the most popular girl in school.

Due to a fortuitous circumstance, they are invited to the star-studded opening of Monsterland. In a theme park fill of real vampires, werewolves and zombies, what could possibly go wrong?

I like books that make me feel I am right in the middle of the action. I also like to read paranormal stories. I will look for this.

This reminds me of the classic "Goosebumps" books I read as a kid. I love the idea, it sounds like a fun & thrilling read, and I really hope this ends up being a book because it would be exciting to 'experience' visually!

This one sounds scary... A perfect read for Halloween!

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

This one sounds interesting. I'm not really into the scarier kind of books (or movies) because they tend to get my mind going and then I freak myself out. But I have a friend who lives for this kind of thing! - Jeanine
