really liked it
Read from August 30 to September 08, 2011

Outside of a frequent mortuary setting, this book is very different from Wells's I Am NOT a Serial Killer series. It's much more humorous . . . a sort of comedy-horror-fantasy-historical mish-mash that takes rather absurd and entertaining turns in its plot.

I admit that, at first, I was leery about the book. The prose read differently than I had expected, and I don't generally pick up comic-fantasy-fiction in my leisure time. But once my brain adjusted to the quick pace of the story, I rather liked it. As in yes, I actually LOLed in several areas and have developed a very strange twitterpation towards John Keats. This book is very A Series of Unfortunate Events-esque, but it all ties in rather well, and, well, it's a fun read. I would definitely recommend it.

There were a few grammar mistakes here and there, and I think the title doesn't really reflect the story, but other than that, two thumbs up.
