Skull Nuggets by Amy M. Vaughn

I don’t read a lot of bizarro. Actually, I don’t think I have really read any bizarro. So when I was offered the opportunity to review a bizarro book I got really excited. The title totally peaked my interest and I loved the cover. So when my copy of Skull Nuggets was hand delivered I started it immediately.

Synopsis: When it is discovered that mental illness is linked to neurophages Robert jumped at the chance to get help eradicating them.

What I liked: I enjoyed Vaughn’s writing style. The story premise was interesting and new. The characters were well fleshed out and three dimensional. The plot kept me completely engaged and wanting to find out what happened with the characters. I enjoyed the pace of the story. The characters where interesting and I cared about what happened to them.

What I didn’t like: There was nothing about this story that I really didn’t like.

Star Rating: 4 Stars

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed the story. I LOVED the cover illustration which is by Betty Rocksteady. I really enjoyed Vaughn’s story telling. Skull Nuggets was a great introduction to the bizarro genre. I loved the nuerophage idea. I think that the way Vaughn used to describe the the way nuerophages and mental illness felt very personal.

A big thank you to Amy for the review copy.
