To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I haven't read many of this series and not in any kind of order so I may have missed some of the back story but not enough to prevent me enjoying Cemetery Dance. It is a romp round voodoo, zombies and murder which should not, I think, be taken too seriously. Looking back it's all extremely implausible - yes, the plot, but also how it all came together - but it was great fun and an exciting journey to the denouement. I really liked this book as great escapist literature and would recommend it to any reader looking for some brightness on a dull day.
First time I have felt myself thinking, shall l continue with these books, my efforts were not rewarded a all this time. 500 pages to tell this story, was far to long. It just wasn't polished, lots of small timing mistakes that jarred, or you just end up skipping & scanning through pages of needless words. A whole character was introduced and there was no need. A task was also taken on with no need, both points could, and should have been dealt with differently. I will never get those few hours back now.
As for the ending... Amazon can l get £2.50 back, l think that is fair.
Another enjoyable Pendergast read. This time, we're back in New York for a romp involving zombies and a sacrificial cult. If you've been reading the series since the beginning - and become happily familiar with Pendergast's friends and acquaintances then you're in for a big shock during the first chapter.
