“These are the secrets I have kept. This is the trust I never betrayed. But he is dead now and has been for more than forty years, the one who gave me his trust, the one for whom I kept these secrets. The one who saved me . . . and the one who cursed me.
So starts the diary of Will Henry, orphaned assistant to Dr. Pellinore Warthorpe, a man with a most unusual specialty: monstrumology, the study of monsters. In his time with the doctor, Will has met many a mysterious late-night visitor, and seen things he never imagined were real. But when a grave robber comes calling in the middle of the night with a gruesome find, he brings with him their most deadly case yet.”
I didn’t enjoy this book as much as i hope too. I love Rick Yancey, i love monsters, i love the writing.
But something didn’t work for me. I had absolutly no connection with the characters. I didn’t care at all.
The writing is my favorite part. It’s amazing. Make me feel like i was reading one of those old school monsters stories. I liked it a lot.
The Monstrumologist was an ok book for me, don’t know if i’ll be reading the next one. Maybe i will.
But if like me you enjoyed the writing, but you are not to sure about the story, check out The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, it’s fantastic!
The Monstrumologist : 3/5
