Today I’m excited to be part of Denton Little’s Still Not Dead blog tour! This was a hilarious sequel to Denton Little’s Deathdate.
Denton Little lives in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day on which they will die. The good news: Denton has lived through his deathdate. Yay! The bad news: He’s being chased by the DIA (Death Investigation Agency), he can never see his family again, and he may now die anytime. Huh. Cheating death isn’t quite as awesome as Denton would have thought. . . .
Lance Rubin’s debut novel, Denton Little’s Deathdate, showed readers just how funny and poignant imminent death could be. Now in this sequel, he takes on the big questions about life. How do we cope, knowing we could die at any time? Would you save someone from dying even if they were a horrible person? Is it wrong to kiss the girl your best friend is crushing on if she’s really into you instead? What if she’s wearing bacon lip gloss?
Tawney’s Review: This book was over the top funny which made me laugh and read until I finished the last page. All the characters are back from the first book especially Dento and Paolo! Their bromance and antics together just makes sense and add realism to this humorous book.
Denton had grown from the first book…he isn’t dead either! In the first book everyone knows when they are going to die. So Denton knew that he was going to die. We were left at a cliffhanger in the first book and the second book picks everything back up. Denton learning about death date, trying to save his friends and so on.
The topics are somewhat heavy dealing with death but with the humor this book handles it well. It’s a great Sci-Fi series that really isn’t Sci-Fi if that makes sense? This book is action packed with humor and wacky plot lines. The book ends wonderfully that left me satisfied.
Should you read it? Yes! With entertaining characters and humor you won’t want to put this down until you finish it.
