Holy crap I did not expect the awesomeness of this book. Won it in a Goodreads giveaway, didn't give it a whole lot of thought until I picked it up a few days ago. Two days later - done, but if you have the time you will likely finish this in a single sitting. It's a modern day Frankstein tale that plays out in Chicago. Lots of references to the original Mary Shelley book which I thought was really nice touch. Deeply developed characters, The Undead, a good bit of gore, originality and super ...more

I was the lucky recipient of Bone Welder. I started the book while on a flight home recently. I found myself sitting up late at night wanting to read more and forcing myself to put it down to get some sleep. I certainly understand why Greg Kishbaugh has won the Ray Bradbury Award Winner. I normally do not like changes to classics, but this was done so well it is truly a stand alone story. I don't do spoiler alerts. How shall I say this. Just read it.

This isn't a genre I usually read. After going to the talk and signing I was commited to give it it's due. Oh, I couldn't put it down. The short chapters made it ideal for my life right now. However, I put many things off for one more chapter.

Safe to say I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I finished it in two sittings in one day, now that's the definition of a page turner.

An interesting take on the Frankenstein's monster story. Unfortunately, it doesn't follow through on the potential shown in the beginning.
The writing is decent, but it feels kind of "young adult" like in it's structure. The chapters are short, and it's all very fast-paced. I like that, but it ends up feeling incomplete.
We never really find out enough about some of the characters to understand their motivations, or to emphasize with what they deal with. Because of this parts of the ending fall f

I just wanted to write a few lines as to why I gave this book 2 stars.

The main issue was just the pace, when reading reviews (all of which were glowing) they said how gripping and have fast paced and action packed it was, and while, yes it was actually quite paced it wasn't necessarily a good thing, I felt like I was in a whirling things were happening and I didn't feel like I had time to digest what was happening, one minute I was on a scavenge across the Arctic, on an expedition to find Franke

I'm not normally a fan of the whole horror genre. That being said, Kishbaugh's "Bone Welder" was a page-turning read. What if "Frankenstein" were a historical account rather than gothic fiction? What if it continued up to the present?

Bone Welder combines an interesting twist on a classic story with great writing. Kishbaugh manages to be descriptive without being over-wrought. He is terse without being choppy.

To be fair, though, I parked on Lower Wacker for five years without ever being skinned a
