    One thought on “Menagerie”

    1. Think Jurassic Park but with monsters instead of dinosaurs. I did really enjoy this one but there were a few flaws. You have someone gathering monsters from all over the world to put in a zoo, which really sounds like a cool concept. But then a group of activists free the monsters, who invade the town and kill a lot of people. I hate it that everytime someone tries to build a cool zoo like this one or Jurassic Park something goes wrong, because it's still a cool idea! (By the way, if anyone has [...]

    2. What? How Mr. Marlowe can create such a book still ponders me. Being able to create monsters and describe them is amazing. Everything is so detailed and interesting. I loved the constant change between characters and events. I couldn't stop reading. Very well done Mr Marlowe.

    3. In theory a book about a team running around and catching monsters for a Jurassic Park type facility sounds fantastic. Unfortunately this book just doesn't live up to how the story would go in my head.I think my main issue, is whilst the team run around catching these monsters, there is just not enough detail about the monsters themselves. Granted, this may be just me as I love detail. On the other hand I do like the idea of another group who oppose the monster hunters, however again it didn't p [...]

    4. Menagerie is about the mission of a dedicated monster hunter to safely harvest the world's deadliest hidden creatures and bring them under one roof, a zoological park where they will no longer be a threat to mankind. But even monsters have their defenders, and the road to Hell is paved with good intentionsI liked the main character Gomer and the tough, pistol wielding Brit Alfred - they made for a good partnership, a pillar of strength and wise cracks to the other whenever needed. But I also tho [...]

    5. Yet another good idea squandered in the hands of a bad writer.This is the second book, if you can even call it that, that I've read in the past few weeks to let a really great premise go to waste. Monsters are real. A wingnut with money to burn and too much time on his hands decides to catch them and put them in a theme park. An equally unstable activist sets them free. If all of this had taken up less than half the book, the story might have worked. If any of the characters were likable or even [...]

    6. This was one of those books I read on a whim, largely because I loved Fragment, by Warren Fahy, which was about a monster ecosystem, and the cover art, which was intriguing and cool. It had also been sitting neglected in my Kindle for WAY too long. Unfortunately, I can't say the novel lived up to expectations, but I can say it was a good, action packed read with lots of grisly violence and monstrous deaths, both human and otherwise. Didn't love it, but don't dislike it, so I give it full recomme [...]

    7. I found Menagerie a bit slow to start with. The monster hunting expeditions were fun but I was waiting for the part where the monsters escape from the zoo. When they do, it all seems to be over rather quickly. However, I enjoyed this book a lot. It was fun and exciting, and pretty gory in places so not for the squeamish! The characters were well developed, so I felt I knew them and cared about what happened to them. I especially enjoyed the part where the monsters wreak havoc in the town; there [...]

    8. Great premise for a story, but not done quite to potential. The characters were not very likeable, the monsters needed more indepth description. the premise that someone releases deadly monsters onto the public then feels no remorse after hundreds of deaths, doesn't really fly. Especially when they are supposed to be such a compassionate person in the story. I would like to see more history of the monsters as well. However, this is not a bad read, it went a little slow for me but I did finish it [...]

    9. More like Mehnagerie.A fun [yet worn] idea wasted in the hands of someone who had no clue how to write. Rife with clichés, obnoxiously boring characters, and such a lack of detail or originality drags this book down. I would tell the author to stick to his day job, but I doubt he's any better at making "indie horror," so maybe throw an app at your local Burger King. Learn how to construct a sandwich instead of a plot.

    10. The story was pretty much what I expected it would be but I read it anyway. The plot could have made an interesting story but I really didn't even like the characters and was just glad to finish the book.

    11. Too fragmented in point-of-view and story.Couldn't finish.The section I did read, about 40%, left me fairly meh.
