The Montauk MonsterThe Montauk Monster by Hunter Shea
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Creature Feature! B-Movie Madness! Evil bloated hairless raccoons who don't sound like Bradley Cooper!

What's not to love? It's chaos! Start out with a sleepy tourist town like the one in Jaws, throw in a large cast of characters including toss away potheads, add conspiracy theories, disease, sharp claws, and no cybernetic implants, and we've got some delicious treats falling into our couch, only to be found the next time we do a thorough cleaning. :)

This here is the closest Hunter Shea novel to his Jersey Devil that I've read! There's nothing like getting to know and enjoy a wide cast of characters who you just know are going to get torn apart or burst from within later on in the novel. Then we can have this little guessing game that goes a little like this:

Who's gonna survive this nightmare? Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

I like the Deep Blue Sea effect, too. :)

So fun. So light. So damn bloody. :) Total trash.

(But I love it so.)
