The Monstrumologist isn't hard to read because of its style, language, or themes. Nope. This book is a bit of a hike because it's really—and we mean really—scary. It's Night of the Living Dead scary. It's sleep-with-your-lights-on-and-pull-the-covers-over-your-head scary. Which, to be honest, we think is kind of fun, though it also keeps the book from being a stroll along the beach. Enter at your own risk, Shmoopers.
