Book Review #83 - Going Bovine by Libba Bray

All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.

My Review: 3/5 

I liked this book but it was just too weird and random for my complete liking. 

I liked the premise and the uniqueness of the characters. 

As a Melbourne Storm fan, I liked how the protagonist's name is Cameron Smith. I didn't like Gonzo that much, he was too eccentric.   

This book took me a week to finish, and I was very happy when I finally did finish it.
