Review of ‘Larry’ a satirical comedy novella!

larryHello everyone,

Today i am posting something a little different as for the first time on my blog i am writing a review of someone else’s book. The book i speak of is called ‘Larry’ and it has been written by horror novelist and publisher Adam Millard. Larry is a novella which has been written as a spoof horror which pokes fun at well known horror stories.

So here is what i thought:

Satirical comedy at its best

Larry ‘pig face’ Travers, the Central and most pivotal character in this satirical spoof horror is a sadistic axe murder who terrorises those who find themselves at camp diamond creek, 1978 becomes the year that Larry’s days of murdering comes to an abrupt end when he is outwitted by one of the camps survivors, or ‘the final girl’ as she is referred to as in the book. But years later in the present day an arthritic Larry rediscovers his itch for killing and his axe longs once again for the taste of teenage blood. Larry dons the pig mask one more time and a hilarious and often gory adventure ensues following a 60 year old past his time killer as he returns to camp diamond creek to terrorise a new generation of unwitting teenagers.

Having read Larry in a little under 24 hours (which for me is remarkably fast) I am now able to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from start to finish the enjoyable plot had me captivated and I found it difficult to put my kindle down for extended periods of time as I had to know what was going to happen next. The realistic characters helped keep my interest and putting a spin on old tales such as depicting an ageing axe murder made the humorous aspects of the book all the more enjoyable.

Having watched numerous horror movies I can safely say that his book pokes fun at them all and it has been written in such a way that it felt as though I was reading the script for another Mel Brooks movie. I giggled at numerous intervals during reading this book making it an instant winner for me, and the fact that it has been written extremely well adds to that overall enjoyment.

So if you like horror and want to read something that takes that genre and turns it on its head, or if you are just looking for a laugh, then give it a try.

If you would like to read this novella yourselves then here is the link to amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Larry-Adam-Millard-ebook/dp/B00MG2JE8Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1407696694&sr=8-2&keywords=larry
