Welcome to Tuesday of Rene Gutteridge Week! That’s #RGWeek to the Twitter savvy.) I hope you’re enjoying it so far; there’s a bunch more fun to come.
Boo Who by Rene Gutteridge, book 2 in the Boo series (WaterBrook, 2004), 352 pages
Since the town’s claim-to-fame (and claim-to-tourism) bestselling horror novelist became a Christian and quit writing horror, Skary, Indiana is no fumbling about, looking for a way to survive, a new way to self-identify.
Many of the characters aren’t really believable, but that’s part of where the humor comes from — aside from the straight-faced puns. I don’t think I enjoyed this one as much as I remember liking the first installment, but I’ll still be reading the rest of the series. In fact, I’m reading the next book, Boo Hiss, as I write this, so I can read Boo Humbug, the series’ conclusion, yet this Christmas season. In addition, I’m looking forward to digging into her Possession, which I thought was going to be released in January 2011 but is apparently available now.
Gutteridge has recently been writing some more drama/thriller-type books, but so far the ones I love the most are the funny ones. As much as I love happy, funny books, good ones are really rare, especially in Christian fiction (or so it seems to me). And Gutteridge is definitely one of the best!
