My Book Review of Wisconsin Vamp: A very Wisconsin vampire horror comedy (Monsters in the Midwest Book 1)

collectionWisconsin Vamp by Scott Burtness
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Average Joe Becomes A Vampire

This was quite original. Loving monsters and being from the Midwest, a friend of mine and I decided to read this trilogy together. We had no idea what we were getting into, but we both found much to enjoy.

What I liked was the touches of home and the great metaphors. The author has a great way with words, drawing distinct and new visuals. I found them both entertaining and refreshing.

What I didn’t like was that a lot of his Midwest references were from my home state of Minnesota (i.e. You betchas, off dah, and okay’den) and nothing a respectable Wisconsinite would say, unless they were teasing us Minnesotans (my husband is from Wisconsin) LOL
I also felt there were some plot holes that left me with questions as to how certain things could happen. I overlooked them because it is a book and I was enjoying it, but I felt the plot could’ve been stronger as well as some of the details more developed.

Would I recommend this story? Yes. Not only that, I am moving onto the next book in the series. Flaws didn’t matter for this tale. The author makes it a fun read and that is what counts in the end. Good job!
