Wow, I haven't had this much fun reading a book in a very long time. Once again, John Connolly did not disappoint.
I have been putting this book off for quite some time now because I love love love this series and I did not want them to end - yes, I'm weird like that. But I couldn't resist forever so I got around and read it. I'm still grieving though...
'The Creeps' was a lovely book. Funny, enticing and even sad - Oh God that end. The plot was amazing, and in my opinion even better than 'The Infernals' which is my least favorite book in this series - don't get scared I still rated it 4 stars, which means it was only a little different from what I expected.
The freaking dwarfs were my favorite this time. They are freaking hilarious and cannot be ignored in this final installement of 'Samuel Johnson vs the Devil', I mean how can you ignore the fact that one of them at some point in the book stole a pocket, yes a pocket, not the contents of it but the actual pocket. I laughed so hard reading this that I ended up tearing up.
Samuel was especially sweet during this book. Struggling to break up with his horrible girlfriend and still trying not to be mean to her.
And freaking Mrs. Abernathy... That old demon was damn persistent! Her hatred for Samuel was so big that she even managed to come up with a plan which would ultimately destroy her too.
The ending though... Oh my feels. It was so so sweet that it got me saying 'aww' out loud for a moment. It kinda reminded me of 'The Book of lost Things' with its sweetness - by the way that book broke me beyond repair.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a little fun mixed with fantasy.
