Review: Strange Beasts in a Small Town

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So far, in 2014, Strange Beasts in a Small Town is THE best book I’ve read. This is a giant monster novel the way it SHOULD be written. Lots of action, characterization, subplots and just general fun!

There are elements here you can see in every Japanese kaiju flick, but given new twists by the author. There are versions, of a sort, of Godzilla, Hedorah (the Smog Monster) and King Seesar, if that Okinawan giant was actually more of an actual hound dog.

The book really reads like one of the nineties’ Godzilla movies, with much more background than the sixties’ era movies. The novel is well-written, paced very well, and there are surprises galore. Definitely one I would rate as “highly recommended!”
