I loved Gil's All Fright Diner and was really looking forward to Monster. Monster is a cryptoid catcher. The book starts off strong with Monster encountering yeti in the frozen foods aisle of the Food Plus Mart but it went downhill for me after that. Chester, a paper gnome and Monster's partner, was my favorite character. I would have been interested in more scenes involving Monster's succubus girlfriend and his rivalry with a fellow cryptoid hunter. The Fate of the Universe stuff and the villain of the piece were mostly forgettable and left me yawing. This one failed to hook me.
