bookshelves: ebooks, 2006-2010, horror, humor-and-satire

1.5 to 2.0 stars. While not a bad book, this one was just to the left of okay in my opinion. It is a fast, short read that fits within the genre of camp/horror/comedy. Without giving away any spoilers, the story involves a convenience store clerk who works the night shift and becomes involved in trying to solve some bizarre murders that may be tied to supernatural creatures.

There are a few areas of sharp witty dialogue, especially when the characters are channeling Star Wars, Lost Boys and other "classic" films. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough of these moments to make me rate this higher. That is what makes this sub-genre so difficult to do well. If you aren't laughing much of this time, then the story becomes very forgettable.

I will say that I will check out future work by this author as I think the good parts of this story were very enjoyable and the main character was very likeable.
