Road Seven by Keith Rosson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Rarely will I compare a book to another work because I want to make sure an author gets full credit for their originality, but I felt this so much that in this case I will make an exception. There is a very strong “Stranger Things” vibe going on throughout this book, but trust me, it is still wildly unique and has plenty of its own flavor to bring to the table.
From the first few pages I was laughing hysterically and this humor continued right through until the very end. Rosson’s way of writing moves along at an easy and steady pace that is so entertaining. I especially loved that much of the story was based out of the Pacific Northwest since that’s where I’m located. Barring the tiny bit of strange and prophetic mentions of specific places that have been in the news recently, such as Capitol Hill and Cal Anderson Park. Even the obscure mentions of my local grocery store gave me a little thrill.
It’s such an untraditional monster story that really gives you no clue as to how it’s going to end, but you don’t even really care, because the journey is a riot.
Thank you, Meerkat Press, for my copy for an honest review.
