Review: Dust and Decay


Dust and Decay
Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I didn’t love Rot & Ruin, but I liked it well enough to find out what happened next. I don’t regret continuing with the series. I went through this one pretty quick, so obviously it was a decent read.

My issues with this second book are the same as with the first. The plot is pretty predictable and Benny is a tool. Is any teenager really that awkward and socially dumb? I dunno. Also, the bounty-hunter surfers were pretty annoying with their stereotyped lingo.

More than anything, though, was the audiobook narrator. His emphasis seems wrong too often. It just bothers me. I suspect I’d enjoy the series more if I read it myself. Ah, for the time to do so!

I’ll be finishing this series. Not just because I’m OCD that way, but because I am interested in seeing what will happen to Benny, Nix, Lyla and the others. The jet is an interesting twist and I want to see what’s up with that.
