Anyway back to the book. This and other reviews on Book Thoughts by Marielle! There’s just something about the prose that reads very awkwardly and clumsily to me.

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. So as you can imagine I was very excited to get my hands on a copy of Dearly, Beloved.

Dearly, Departed

I love knowing the inner workings and dealy of Nora, and Bram, but also of Vesterpine and Michael. I had drawn my own conclusion and could be more glad daerly have been more wrong.

And let’s keep in mind that Habel’s zombie lore isn’t that different from normal zombie lore. Sweet Jesus, the narrators.

The psychology of it is impressive, and fascinating, and honestly moving. This is what killed this book. It had everything I look for in a novel. View all 38 comments.

Read it Forward Read it first. You might remember, if you read my Dearly, Departed review, that I adored Pamela in the last book.
