Something Strange and Deadly

Something Strange and Deadly - http://www.nobentspines.blogspot.com/This book was an enticing mixture of Alice in Zombieland and Dearly, Departed. Set in a true Victorian background, this novel played with the idea of live after death, zombies and women who think.When Eleanor's brother doesn't come back as planned and a note from him comes in the hands of a zombie, she's confused to say the least. There are secrets swarming around her like flies: her father's death, her suitor's ugly past, her brother's true whereabouts and Daniel's connection with all of it.For me, I was disappointed. There was so much hype over this book. 5 Star ratings and people telling me I just had to read it or I would die. I didn't want to die so I thought I'd give it a shot. Also, her dress (the girl on the cover's) is really pretty. But there is no correlation between the cover and the story. There was too much going on and the sad part was, none of it was remotly interesting. My mind was separated, going back and forth between zombies and love triangles and creepy feelings and dynamite and rich people and inventions and world traveling and voodoo and spirits. My mind was close to exploding. But, I muscled through it because I felt it was my duty to me fellow bibliophiles.The set up was very much like the Victorian-ness of Dearly, Departed without the steam punk, modern twist and had the evil zombie's and zombie fighters like in Alice in Zombie Land. I expected more steam punk. I wanted more. More!!Overall, this was a quick read. Easy and safe. It won't rip your heart out or steal your soul. Would I read it again? Nope. Sorry. *shrugs*Hope this review helped you decide whatever there as to decide!! Share the bloggy love
