Reviews for Dead Rules
Twisted and witty-Great Read!
Dead Rules is surreal morality dipped in romance and humor- an original combination that's a first for me . In essence, teenage love that I know all too well seeing how I've married my high school sweetheart.
1. Death by suffocation
2. Death by electrocution
3. Death by sharp object
Where am I going with this list? Lol, you're curious right?
Jana is true to her character- she is an actress who shines in the drama department even in death. Jana wholehearted believes she is the Juliet of our time and that death is just that pesky item on a to do list that needs crossing out. "Hilariously macabre" is spot on. The humor of this novel is meant as just that- certainly, no serious readers should dare open Dead Rules.
"O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" Who is Romeo to Jana's Juliet?
I couldn't believe the circumstances that surrounded Jana's death. The plot is shocking on top of the out of this world "really?" humor. As events unfold, as your laughing at Jana and her surreal thoughts there is so much more going on and what a treat to read.
All in all, a fully entertaining read that I would recommend to those who like to read YA books with witty and twisted plots. I will admit that Jana's thoughts are not all delusional. I believe if I were transported back a few years to my teens with my high school sweetie (now hubby) and Jana's life was mine- similar actions would be taken by me. Hahahaha!! So I guess I'm partly laughing at myself. by Chasity
