This one was my fault. It didn't come from the author or a publishing group/company. I saw the cover on Amazon.com and thought, "Hmm... this may be good, Alyssa." Boy was I wrong. Guess what guys! I didn't even finish the book.
As with many authors today, The Melting Dead by Doug Lamoreux is a new take on a old idea. These aren't so much zombies as they're alive yet dying, simply mutated by something I won't tell you about because what? I don't give SPOILERS! So with that, I snatched the book and added it to my Kindle for a read.
TMD is very slow. When I last read the book, I was about 36% into the tale and there'd only been one bout of serious action. The rest was jibber-jabber to me. The author introduced character after character and NONE of them held my interest! They were one dimensional...
One character, Angela- a theater directer, was the most annoying! She constantly rattled off movie titles, and references (which shoulda been pretty cool) for either no apparent reason or when she felt the situation deserved... a title? A definition to what was happening? I don't know, but I always knew when the next chapter would be
from her perspective because the first thing stated was a title of a movie or book! Ugh... she was irking my spirit! Yes a fictitious character irked me. I think I got to page 74 out of 241 and just called it quits. Other than the slow story, it was Angela who made me delete the book from my Kindle app. I need more man, and this book just was not putting out.
It's a silly story set in the backwoods- trying to be both mysterious and funny. I wasn't much entertained and kept trying to wade my way through, like being caught in quicksand... until I succumbed to watery depths. Honestly, I almost melted as I wrote this, but wound up eating the book just to stay alive!
On to the next one!📚
