quality literature: the monstrumologist

this was a strange one.  i started reading it last may right as school was letting out.  i guess it started too slowly or i just wasn't in the mood for the genre.  i'm not sure.  i got about 1/5 of the way in and just stopped.  come to think of it, this was about when i stopped reading for a couple months in general.  anyway, don't blame anything on the book.  i finished it last night and turns out it is quite good!  i'm actually stoked that there are three more in the series that have gotten equally good reviews.  putting them on my "to read" list.

but back to the strangeness of the book.  the english teacher in me is intrigued.  this is listed as young adult fiction.  high school level.  for the first half of the book, the storyline seemed more middle schoolish.  the sentence structure isn't too intense, but the vocabulary . . . WOAH!  there is heavy hitting vocabulary in this one!  love that!  but definitely not middle school level.  then the storyline got a little more disturbing.  definitely past middle school level.  so it's all good.  ha!

anyway.  good book.  horror, but more old school style if that makes sense.  i wonder if my sister would like it?
