Welcome back to a super speedy Friday edition of Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today's edition may seem a bit morbid especially since I spent most the day at the hospital waiting for Mom to be discharged (no worries she FINALLY was!), but I promise, it's all in good fun. It's a sequel to a book I featured some time last year that's a quick easy fun filled read you have to see to believe. Ready for the big reveal? Here goes. Today's book of choice is...
ALL MY FRIENDS ARE STILL DEAD
Avery Monsen and Jory John
Yes...you read that title correctly, STILL dead; as in the sequel to the first book, ALL MY FRIENDS AS DEAD from this same dynamic duo. It's another illustrated page turner that will have you holding your sides as you try and contain your mirth. It has everything from the janitor whose friends are all garbage to a lottery ticket whose friends are all losers (get it? Ha!), but what puts the extra bit of charm in is the recurring characters.
The first one is a robot who goes from being non-programed to seeking friends in all the wrong places....or at least with less than friendly electronics. He's sweet in his efforts despite being made of bits and bobbins. The second one is human.. just lacking time spent with others of kind...that have a pulse. Yeah...let's just say his social skills are lacking leading to some less than enjoyable attempts at meeting the opposite sex. (Too funny....sad but funny... ^_^)
All in all, a greatly humorous read that I would recommend for older teens and beyond. If you like a good laugh or simply enjoy those moments in life where the obvious has been stated but at JUST the right moment, this one's for you.
Review copy checked out while on break at job two. To obtain a copy all your own, be on the lookout at a bookstore near you. This book was released by Chronicle Books; for more information, seek thee out their website, or Twitter feed.
Until next time...all my friends byte (ha! Get it? Cuz your online? ^_^)...and happy reading!
