When I first started reading “The Boy Who Drew Monsters”, I was instantly transported back to my childhood. I was a slightly odd kid, with a love of everything horror. Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Christopher Pike – I just couldn’t get enough. Keith Donohue’s new novel brings me back to those authors of my youth. Make no mistake, this is not meant as a compliment. On the whole, “The Boy Who Drew Monsters” feels dated, akin to some schlocky horror paperback from the 1980’s.
