Like coming back to old friends ...

I came into this novel expecting something on par with its predecessor, and was not disappointed in the least. The characters who were so full-fledged and rich grow and develop by leaps and bounds, especially when pushed to their boundaries. Funkhauser digs down deep into each character and shatters the lines of morality, showing us the darkness and light within all of them... and forcing us to take a good, hard, look at it ourselves as we decide, as readers, who we should really be cheering for. It is a difficult decision, in the end, and I think a second read is in order to really decide. There is not quite as much in the way of magical realism in Scooter Nation: no spirits or sage advisory objects (as there were in Heuer Lost & Found) ... but the spirits of Weibigand's are still very present in the imprint they have left upon the people who remain. In the midst of death and chaos, life endures ... unapologetic, plain, beautiful, and crazy. To be reminded of that should be the goal of every good book, and Funkhauser passes that test with flying colors.

It's Chilling

If you ever wondered what went on behind the closed doors of a mortuary, then this books for you. It's filled with lying, cheating, despicable characters who keep you interested throughout as to what they are going to do next and what their end game really is. There are some people to root for as well though the diabolical ones steal the show. Funkhauser must have extensive knowledge of the mortuary business from the décor to the embalming process because the detail was exemplary. It is clear the writer knows their facts. The images were so precise that you felt you were in the scene with the characters. The book may be a little macabre for some people's tastes but I for one found it a refreshing change from the usual dramas. I decided not to get into details on the storyline because I don't want to be a spoiler and my details might give away too much. In short, read this book. It is a great read that will keep you guessing throughout.

Scooter Nation is a Great Ride

SCOOTER NATION is every bit as fun as it is pure in its telling of rambunctious neighbourhood warfare. A barefaced cast of community members with an appetite for vengeance and tongue-in-cheek humor makes for a story you won't want to miss.

Like the part where Carla whispered to Mayor Swansie "But I've been forced to serve a master I hate in order to obtain my revenge". Poor Carla. Revenge isn't always the answer.

A quirky fun read

Intelligently funny from beginning to end.
