Book: DEAD(ish)

Naomi Kramer
Urban Fantasy
Self Publish / 2009
Kindle / 104 Pages

Linda’s had a bad day. First her boyfriend killed her. Then she woke up, still on this boring plane of existence, and with an odd obsession about her missing body. Mike won’t tell her what he did with her body, and she can’t find the stupid thing herself. There’s only one thing she can do - torment the bastard until he coughs up the information.

This is a very short work - novelette length.

Warning: Frequent foul language, mild sex scenes, and Australian spelling

I picked this book up because It was free & I was looking for a test book for my Kindle

What I liked the Most? The characters – they were “living” it was hilarious

What I liked the Least? The formatting – it’s hard to keep straight

Review: If you can get past the bouncy format (paragraph jumping) then this is a book for you. I loved the fact that Ms Kramer created full characters in the short time that she had in this novelette.

The story has an excellent base - the murdered girlfriend haunts her killer boyfriend because she wants her body found. That's got funny potential – PIs, jail house soap, masturbation funnies, and gay neighbors – all the classic ingredients for comedy.

I must say I was not expecting the ending – I did a eh? Moment. Then dawned on me what I had just read.

Best Quote: "New Rule #1 – Don't date women who paint. Arty-farty doesn't just equal freaky in the sack, it also equals nasty genius revenge. I don't like genius when it's happening to me."
