Book Review: Resurrection Dreams


I give this book 1 star out of 5. It was boring. B.O.R.I.N.G. Which is exactly what you don't want your book to be when it's supposed to be of the horror/thriller genre'.
In the book, a messed up kid named Melvin (seriously?) tries to resurrect the corpse of a fellow student who died in a car crash as his high school science project. He then becomes obsessed with the thought of resurrecting dead women and giving them ever lasting life, one in particular, Viki, the story's main character.
The concept might have been a good one, but it wasn't carried out very well. The characters are bland and uninteresting. The dialogue both inner and shared among characters leaves a lot to be desired. The book lacks an overall creepy vibe. I had to force myself through a little over half of it, where upon I just gave up. It was taking SOOOOO long to read through. I'd get a few pages in and then my mind would start wondering off to more interesting topics like..... lint and dust bunnies, counting spots on the ceiling, that sort of thing.
In other words: Not a keeper.
