I suggest 'Big Trouble' by Dave Berry. When I read that I laughed out loud many times. (They also made a movie out of the book with Tim Allen(?). The movie was quite dreadful when compared to the book.After reading this book I will read something fun and happy. Lol
....spot on!.....I well understood by the time I read this novel-that Steve was never going to give us a happy ending or even an ending wrapped up in a neat bow with all questions answered-but this damn thing gave NO fuc*s!!!!!....not a single glimmer of redemption or happiness,,,,shoulda been packed with a bottle of Wellbutrin.....
Revival was great Lovecraftain fiction. Pet Sematary is to, but on the darker edge. You never see what happens in the afterlife with Pet Sematary, or even see how the people and animals come back. It's left to your imagination and that is more powerful than anything written. Revival was a largely hopeful book, even at its worse you could keep thinking 'hey, this can still turn out okay' but in Pet Sematary you never have a moment when you feel the story will have a happy ending.
