Pabkins’ One Liner: Visit the ultimate Mystery House!
Padlocked doors. Strange light fixtures. Mutant cockroaches.
There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment.
Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much.
At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
Because every room in this old Los Angeles brownstone has a mystery or two. Mysteries that stretch back over a hundred years. Some of them are in plain sight. Some are behind locked doors. And all together these mysteries could mean the end of Nate and his friends.
Or the end of everything…
*Chuckles* This review contains strong words – that’s right I cuss because I do that when I like a book, maybe not a lot, maybe too much for some…at least I don’t use it like
Gushing over the wicked fun which was 14 is practically impossible to do well without spoiling it for future readers. It was nothing that I expected and yet everything that I needed. I know that probably doesn’t help explain it much so lets do it like this.
Sometimes I wonder how I would have turned out if I lacked ambition and drive and just sort of went where ever the flow took me, but I’m not that kind of person. Most of us want something and go for it. But Nate, well he is the ultimate poster boy for the disillusioned and unmotivated masses. He has friends, but no one extremely close to him. He has a job, but he hates it and feels he can’t afford to quit. His boss is an assjack and he makes so little money that he’s watching every buck. I would hate to have anything in common with him! A nice guy but totally lacking in direction. He’s just let life pass him by because nothing has ever really caught his interest enough to kick his ass into high gear.
I take this as an example of the down-trodden’s lot in life:
The humor was a smash hit with me. Do you like Scooby Doooooooby Dooooooo? Well I do…and heck Peter Clines must also because there were quite a few references to it as well as other 80’s films and pop culture.
