I’ve read a couple books by William Pauley 3 and so far I’ve enjoyed each one. Last year he gave out a couple of his shorter ones to gain some reviews. Slime Night was one of those books, and I finally got around to reading it.
This book is a throwback to most anyone who grew up in the 80’s and maybe early 90’s. It’s the story of a couple of high school kids who battle over the love of a girl via pinball. The girl is the school slut, but our two boys may be the only ones who’ve never done anything with her. Pretty much if I said anything else about the story I would be spoiling something for a potential reader.
Slime Night is really short but it’s well written and entertaining. One could easily read it in a sitting. Pauley manages to cram a lot of character development in such a short span. It’s also full of interesting pinball information.
Though it still has the WP3 feel, it doesn’t have the weirdness and bizarre aspects he’s known for. I’m not saying it’s completely bizarre free, but it’s just not at the level one may expect from reading his other books. And that’s not a bad thing at all, sometimes it’s nice to see a weirdo author you like changing it up a bit.
