Book Review #1223
Dead Guy Spy by David Lubar
Rating: one star (out of four)

Initial thoughts: This book made me feel kind of sick. There's just some things I don't want to read about involving bodily functions. I didn't care for the story line either.

The title of this book should have given me a clue, but this story featured a lot of gross descriptions and scenarios. It definitely felt like a "boy book" with the crazy concoctions, bizarre scenarios and off-beat humor. But still, even though it was unlike anything I had read before, it made me feel a little queasy...and that's never a good thing. I actually put it down for a while and then a few months later I picked it back up and finished it. I didn't like it. The characters weren't relatable and I never felt anything for Nathan's plight or his well-being. It might have helped to have read the first book in the series (this is book two) but after finishing this I didn't want to read any more. Not my taste at all.

  1. cky15: sounds like a nice little book. I am always looking for books for my grand-daughter to read. Thanks for the giveaway too.
