BOOK REVIEW: ANTI-HERO / AUTHOR: JONATHAN WOOD / PUBLISHER: TITAN BOOKS / RELEASE DATE: MARCH 13TH
Life at MI37 is certainly never dull, and before you can say “But didn't I save the world yesterday?” another terror is looming for Arthur Wallace and his co-workers, as they fight against the mystical, the supernatural, and the downright weird, to save humankind once again.
Anti-Hero is the latest instalment in author Jonathan Wood's Arthur Wallace series that once again sees the team at MI37 chasing unspeakable horrors, and this time it's a little too close to home as his co-workers threaten both his sanity and the world.
Our heroes, or should that be anti-heroes, are fighting one of the weirdest enemies yet, joining forces with a rather unlikely ally to save humanity and facing a few rather unusual threats along the way. It's certainly not your everyday occurrence at the office when you find yourself battling against spore zombies, psychotic computer programmes and even rather questionable gigantic mushrooms, but it's just another day at the office for the workers at MI37, and one that sees them take on their toughest challenge yet.
Making for an entertaining read, the story takes the team at MI37 to some of the toughest places yet as they make some incredibly difficult decisions to save humankind from an amusing but deadly threat that's unlike any they've ever faced before. It's a gripping story of dark humour and paranormal horror that's certainly unlike any other you've read before. This horrific story of the supernatural, complete with plenty of dark humour, is almost like the result of a rather amusing collaboration between Douglas Adams and H.P Lovecraft (if such a thing were possible); an amusing read but with plenty of horrific notes laced throughout.
Anti-Hero makes for a gripping tale of dark comedic horror that's hard to put down, an entertainingly dark and amusing read that will certainly be tough to follow. With the next instalment in the series due out later this year, you can only wonder what horrific calamities Arthur and his co-workers will face next.
