In a theme park full of real vampires, werewolves and zombies, what could possibly go wrong?
The sky was a sparkling, powder blue, mosquitoes droned lazily over the tepid water, frogs croaked messages while they sunbathed on the waxy lily pads.
What I thought of this book
Monsterland is about a crazy guy who builds several monster attractions throughout the world. He has put werewolves, vampires and zombies in an attraction. It had a sort of Jurassic Park vibe as you know something is going to go horrible wrong.
Wyatt thinks that Vincent Conrad is the greatest thing, he is the guy behind Monsterland. His stepfather can’t stand him and thinks there is something not right about the man. Wyatt and his friends get passes to go to Monsterland on opening day though Carter nor his mom really want them to go. Carter has to go as he will be on duty and protecting the President while he is in the attraction.
Carter goes ahead and lets them go though he really doesn’t want them there, but he figured things would be okay. Things start out okay but you get chapters about the monsters and they are not real happy about being there and have plans for escape.
Things went a little different that I was thinking but it was still a decent read.
Wyatt is pretty cool, he doesn’t really belong with the weird crowd but being new at school they were the ones that befriended him. He has a crush on Jade who is dating Nolan a horrible Bully. He is the guy in the horror movie that you hope gets ate! 🙂 His brother Josh is just that annoying little brother that you want to smack. Melvin is extremely weird and what happens with him really just seems to fit him. Howard is the guy I wanted to scream at the most because he has this girl Keisha who really likes him and he just keeps being ignorant of the fact and you want to slap him. Out of all the characters I think Wyatt was the most level headed and the one I liked the best.
I think I was hoping for more action and nothing really happens till about the last 30% of the book, so to me the beginning was a tad boring. I know there has to be a build up to the action but I just was hopping for more action…lol. It seem to have a everyone should be treated equal theme going on throughout it and it also shows there are other types of monsters besides the three featured.
It’s my first novel by this author and I liked it enough to try another one of his so if you are into horror that is not real scary (or at least not to me) then give this one a try.
