The Crud Masters by Justin Grimbol
A classic underdog story, this book was a fun read.
I really enjoyed the world building in this book. It was unique, yet familiar. I definitely did not expect a kind of Hamptons resort to be populated with monsters, so it was definitely a surprise, even having a basic knowledge of what the book would be about. The characters are amusing in their own right. You have a woman who has paid to look like a bear, you have cyborgs, sea creatures, and even a Transformer. All kinds of quirky creatures to catch your attention. Boogers is hilarious, though, stealing every scene he was in.
The novella is fast paced and very fun. There were many moments where I found myself laughing out loud, so it’s not hard to recommend the book to all of you who love a bit of quirkiness with your fiction. It’s definitely a book to notice.
