Finished another book…

Reading one, that is.  Jonathan Maberry’s Rot and Ruin was quite good.  I had read the short story in the Living Dead 2 anthology last fall, so when I started reading the book, I thought I’d read it before.  Just so you know, I’m not on a Maberry reading binge.  At least not on purpose.  Rot and Ruin was the one book in my stack that someone else had on hold at the library, so I had to read it next.  The first part of the book is a fleshed out version of his short story Family Business.  In the book, we get more details and characterization than in the short…did I forget to mention, we get a lot more story.  The vivid descriptions made me feel like I was there watching the story unfold with a group of swarthy friends.  Especially during the storm.  With all the weather we’ve been having, I was expecting a fleshy slap on my living room window.  Unlike the last book of his I read, Rot and Ruin is marketed for young adults, but I still enjoyed it.  In my opinion, the book is worth the time it takes to read.
