2012 Book 3 -- Shotgun Gravy / Chuck Wendig

Rating: 6 out of 10

The character voices in this novella are brilliant.  That's what most of the positive rating rests on.  It has a decidedly pulp sensibility, which might account for the escalation  in violence that I couldn't quite buy.  In the end, it was a little too grim, no win, for me.

Again, I enjoyed the novella length.  This might be a sweet spot for ebooks for me.

I have pre-ordered Wendig's, _Blackbirds_, out later this year.  I am hoping that the same brilliance of voice is there, and that the book has a plot I find more satisfying.
