You make me blush, geoffrey ngoima! Thanks for the compliment. I really wanted to give this book 4 stars. But the monsters wouldn't let me.

Bravo! for the excellent review. I am totally sold and just hope the numerous grammatical errors don't turn me off too much.

There's always that unsettling feeling I get when watching a comedy-horror flick, that would also affect my rating, haha

I love the introduction of this review. You made this book sound just wonderful. I can not wait to read this one.

Miriam, You set the bar so high! :D I was taken aback by the "I am Dwarf" introduction and it made me smile. You're so talented in writing. I will read this book when i have time. I've seen horror comedy movies, but i haven't read one, so this will be on my list. Thank you for the great review :) Thumbs up!

P.S. I think Dwarf is more delighted to meet you. Haha

Hi, Micah! I suppose it's time for final exams. You seem to have been busy.

Thanks for the kind words. I had so much fun writing this review. I think I gave the editors a headache haha.

Yes, you're right. Hell week just passed and i'm enjoying OBC for the time being :)

Guess they were also surprised by the first-person summary! But i think they've enjoyed the review as well :)

You are signed up, Cloe101! Now, your assigned seat is between an Edward and an Ick. You're incredibly lucky; that was the last seat available.
