Book Review: Gil’s All Fright Diner

February 14, 2011

Humor is subjective and if you like the author’s sense of humor you’ll probably really like this book. If, like me, you don’t, you probably won’t.

Duke the werewolf and Earl the vampire stop in for a meal at Gil’s and find themselves under attack from zombies and smack dab in the middle of a plot to destroy the world. The duo stick around to try and help the diner’s owner and save the world and all manner of supernatural hilarity ensues.

The story was fast-paced and entertaining enough and the characters were likable and the werewolf/vampire relationship was interesting, especially since modern myth seems to like to paint werewolves and vampires as mortal enemies, but the story just wasn’t my cup of tea. A little too much humor that I didn’t appreciate and not quite enough horror and in the end it wasn’t enough to make me want to get any of A. Lee Martinez’s other books. But never say never. There may be a day I’m armed with a coupon and looking for something light and fast to read and find myself walking out with another of Martinez’s books.

I’d certainly recommend this book for fans of comic-horror.
