    magine a theme park where you can experience all your favorite monsters up close: werewolves, vampires and zombies. Sounds great? That's what I thought, too, and of course I grabbed a copy of Monsterland. What I liked about the book was the very simple, mostly predictable but still highly original and entertaining idea of the monster park. The main characters were cast from a likable trio of nerdy friends who kept bickering about which monster is the best. Hot high school girls who just come to realize that nerds may be the smart choice over football bullies? Check. Evil power-obsessed maniac in disguise of do-gooder and world rescuer? Check. Dumb politicians being fooled by every slimy lie he tells? Check. Opening night growing wrong, monsters growing strong and causing carnage all along? Check. The resulting story was a decent monster show (though the vampires were a lame bunch). However, the whole time I felt like a distant observer from behind the fence instead of being right in the middle. I can't quite put my finger on why, but the story failed to really impress. Several scenes and dialogues felt repetitive and slowed the action down considerably. Still, I can imagine this one being made into a great horror comedy movie. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
