I really liked this book, however I wasn’t able to give it the full attention I usually am able to give a book, so I ended up putting it down and picking it up several times over the past few weeks. When I had time I loved it, I would have loved to have read it all in a few days unfortunately my schedule didn’t permit me such luxury. I liked the writing style it had an interesting story line. Athough admittedly I tend to stay away from zombie like story lines as quite frankly the idea of a reanimated corpse/living dead etc scares the crap out of me. Though for some reason i’m fine with vampires, Witches, and Werewolves. (go figure) I would have liked a faster pace in the beginning to hook you in there and keep you anchored. I was a little frustrated with how little information the two main characters had to go on to be thrust into this crazy predicament of being the Graveminder and the Undertaker, as the hungry dead wreak havoc on their little community, in the midst of personal loss they don’t have a lot of time to be pissed off, or get answers to all their questions. Which I don’t think even with a less stressful situation Mr. D (Charles) would be forth coming with answers anyway . I like how Becky with what little information Mae gave her was so accepting to her fate, once the pieces snapped together she was like f@#k……. okay down to business. Byron on the other had I think is having a much harder time, and is kind of back and forth with his feelings on being kept in the dark of this family gift/curse/responsibility. I heard that this is suppose to end up as a series so I am interested to know where Melissa Marrs is going with this as being able to travel to the land of the dead and back leaves an open ended amount of possibilities. I would totally recommend this book to anyone and I am looking forward to the next in the series.
I am going with 3.5 out of 5 stars on this one even though I did enjoy it, and I may come back and revisit my rating when I have a chance to re-read it again when I have an uninterrupted space of a few days where I can dive in and really just read uninteruptedly.
You can purchase Graveminder at any major retailer that sells books online or in store.
