Monsterland: Review

From Goodreads:
Welcome to Monsterland—the scariest place on Earth.

Wyatt Baldwin's senior year is not going well. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He's not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An ongoing debate with his best friends Melvin and Howard Drucker over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He'd much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she's dating the brash high-school quarterback Nolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn't stand a chance.

But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can interact with vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.

With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?

My Review:
This book was totally awesome! I enjoyed reading it so much, it was a lot of fun! What with monsters in the title, it could've been straight horror, but there was humor mixed in, and of course, a bit of a thriller/action because hey, monsters!

The synopsis hooked me, the concept of opening an amusement part with monsters as the attractions? Like it asks, what could go wrong? Well, everything, since it's a book! Sometimes, synopsis' are misleading, but nope, not this one!

The pace was almost slow in the beginning, but only for a little bit before things became so chaotic and awesome! The thing I like about thrillers is that feeling that they might never get safe, something is always threatening them. This book did a great job of that!

Bad Guy was really awful! I mean, he presented a good goal and good reasonings, but totally twisted it, and that was just horrible. And that Wyatt has a connection to him-however tenuous, well, that was a big twist! Made the ending all the more explosive!

Yeah, this book was fantastic and amazing to read!
