Review of "Night of the Living Dead Christian" by Matt Mikalatos

So. For the first 50 pages, I didn't get it at all.   So confused.  For the next 50, things got a little clearer.  And then....I was totally on track with the crazy (but so worthwhile) writings of Matt Mikalatos.

Matt, the newly self appointed king of the neighborhood watch, finds that his 'hood is overrun with zombies (blindly following 'Christians'), vampires (super-selfish), and werewolves (those lacking self control with possible anger issues).  He meets Luther, who has a very interesting background - don't we all - and who has also recently started to abuse his wife.  He also has pastor dad issues; but above it all, is still seeking to figure out who he is and who Jesus really is, too.  Along for the ride to crazy are the Hibbs 3000 android/robot, mad scientist Dr. Culbetron, and former high school classmate turned neighbor (also former vampire), Lara.

As mentioned, I had a difficult time getting into this book at first.  This is my second Matt Mikalatos book, and I have to say, he might be an acquired taste....but it's a worth it taste.  Read this book as well as his first, "Imaginary Jesus" - you will be glad you did.  And you will have lots to think about like I do.
