Gil's All Fright Diner | [A. Lee Martinez]

Gil's All Fright Diner

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley.But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Gil's All Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer....

Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner, and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin. And maybe - just maybe - the End of the World, too.

Gory, sexy, and flat-out hilarious, Gil's All Fright Diner will tickle your funnybone - before ripping it out of its socket!

    I thought the narrator was really good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    "Entertaining, Amusing More than Funny"

    I was really hoping to find another laugh aloud funny author, and had high hopes for Lee Martinez. This book was certainly entertaining, and the narrator did a fine job drawing out the humor, but I smiled more than laughed. The main characters are well depicted and engaging, and their nonchalance in the face of the bizarre was fun. But I found the asides and incidental comments more enjoyable than the plot itself, which felt a little predictable. I'd listen to another of his books after this, but with slightly lower expectations.

    "Good book, but..."

    The narrator's voice is a little bit grating. When he's doing dialogue it's fine, but the actually narrator ends up being rather obnoxious. I managed to listen to the whole thing though, and the story/writing is solid.

    "As forgetable as a truck stop meal"

    I have no idea who the audience of the book is for. It is not a horror novel as it lacks the frights and suspense. It is not a comic novel as I never laughed once while listening (but the writer did attempt to be funny). It is also not really a fun or light hearted romp; but rather something that had to be endured.

    The characters were a parade of stereotypes or personality types. The writter turns Dracula and a werewolf into rednecks but does nothing really interesting with them. The plot involves some sort of curse but I could not get invested enough in the characters to really care about what happend to them.

    As a whole a real dull; uninspired piece or writting. Although it is not AWFUL I would definitely not reccomend it.
