Beautifully disturbing or disturbingly beautiful?By SunnyA beautifully written and super creepy horror series that will seriously scare the pants right off of you. Like the best monster novels, the Monstrumologist series illuminates the strengths and weaknesses inherent in humanity by comparing humans with actual monsters. As someone who does not usually get into the horror genre, I found Yancey's
series to be engrossing and perpetually scary. There is a LOT of gore - be forewarned, especially in the first two books. And he does utilize the jump-scare tactic a couple of times, to extremely good effect. It's easy to spot a good horror writer when your mind is plagued for days afterwards with visions of wendigos and anthropomorphi.Even though the series is written from the point of view of a 12-year-old boy, set in New England during the latter half of the nineteenth century, I would strongly caution younger readers. The gore is one thing, but there are some pretty disturbing scenes. (The captain's tale in the first book, anyone???) In addition, the author makes use of his nineteenth century time setting by utilizing a lot of Victorian-era language - I was pleased at being able to discover new words, but for anyone who doesn't like reaching for a dictionary every fifth page or so, this may not be the read for you. Also, for those of you history buffs, you will be tickled pink to see various famous figures featured in the books - like Jack the Ripper.The paperback series itself is nicely encased in a collector's box, as featured. My books came in pristine condition, which honestly has been a bit unusual for as of late, so I was happy to not have to send a box set back for once due to crushed spines and ripped pages.2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. ... read Rick Yancy's " The 5th Wave" and really enjoyed it, I found out he wrote this particular ...By TeeraeI read Rick Yancy's " The 5th Wave" and really enjoyed it, I found out he wrote this particular series and decided to try them, I love them! I am on the third book in the series and I do not want them to end. They are clever and the characters are well defined, I love Will Henry and his adventures as the assistant to Pellinore Warthrop the Monstrumologist. The story takes place in the Victorian era which to me makes it even better!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
