League Book Club Post #1: Happy Hour of the Damned by Mark Henry

*rubs hands together* Hee hee hee. (That's an evil laugh, in case you didn't know.)

This week we'll be discussing Mark Henry's Happy Hour of the Damned, which I personally thought was awesome.

Remember, we're discussing themes and craftsmanship and characterization--the stuff that made the book resonate and contributed to the fun--rather than "like" or "didn't like", although that will be in there too, I'm sure.

Mark is offering up some spiffy prizes, too--some Secret Zombie Presents and a signed copy of the book! So join in everyone!

Okay, here's our first topic.

Amanda Feral is quite the fashionista. What do you think her obsession with labels tells us about her character? In what way did Henry use those to reveal her personality?

And also, don't you think it's a little odd that Mark had such familiarity with those designers? Does it make you wonder about his upbringing? Seriously.

Comment away!
