Because they were flat, one-dimensional walking tropes. Jessica was the classic "best friend", Jasmine was the classic "mean girl" (with a side dose of kleptomanic tendencies that is never explored??) , Meghan was the stereotypical "extroverted, adoring sister" and Will was the "wronged suspicious lanky dude" . And I think that about sums them up to be honest. Even though supernatural activity was hinted at in the book, it felt very... Scooby-Doo-esque, and quite clichéd, what with all the Ouija boards and strange prophetic dreams. I really have to ask the question of why the author felt it necessary to turn her story from the genre of mystery to the occult. Also, the rules and extents to Tommy's use of magic is just... never explained. Readers just have to accept that he's a wizard with immortality skills and he's been vibing across London for the last 150 years. No one's noticed this guy who just doesn't age and possibly living in the same manky house for who knows how long.
My only disappointment was the reveal at the end wasn’t as grand, it was a little predictable, but I still wanted that AHA! moment. There was also the symbolic reason of ending at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” says Jonathan Casey, director of the archives and Edward Jones Research Center at the National World War I Museum and Memorial. The quest to bring poetic symmetry to the conclusion of a war that was anything but poetic came at a terrible cost—the lives of nearly 3,000 soldiers, including one American private who sought to restore his reputation in the war’s final minute. The war continued for six hours after the armistice signing. Keep going. Learn and invest in yourself – whether that’s time to write, reading about the craft, taking a course, going on a retreat…you are the only person who can write your book. I really think the phrase ‘write what you love’ is important too – after eight years of trying, it’s what finally worked for me!She has a long-standing love affair with all things scary, reading Point Horrors at primary school before graduating to Stephen King in her misguided teens. Classic 90s and 00s horror movies are definitely her pub quiz strong point and her first love may well have been Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Studying for a degree in Art History and Archaeology meant that she developed a thirst for anything old, beautiful and very often dead. She tries to combine this with contemporary settings in her writing to make unique and chilling modern stories. Rancid formed in 1991, and along with Green Day and The Offspring, brought Punk into the mainstream in the '90s. Rancid never signed to a major label: Let the Dominoes Fall was released on the independent Hellcat Records. Alrighty, this is the first book review I've written on Goodreads, because I think it'll be fun to rant about. Though I think, after re-reading this review again, it turned into more of an analysis. Oops.
Well this question is just mean-there are so many! I’m going to be a massive cliché and go for Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I read it as a way-too-young teen and it terrified me – I had to hide it before I went to bed. I’ve re-read it as an adult with a totally different understanding and it’s as horrific as I remembered – the grief and loss hits you in a different way. When King gets it right, he really gets it right.The storyline was good and exciting. The only problem I had was the scary parts. It wasn't scary enough for me. I couldn't feel the ice-cold feeling when you been scared for one scene. It was like a normal thriller book.
The storyline echoes that of the Fear Street and Point Horror novels that I grew up on. Simple, but effective storytelling. A Ya horror thriller that will definitely have you at the edge of your seat and when you think you have it all figured out, it will pull the rug from under you.Determined to make it through her Drama Course, Niamh is placed at the Victorian Museum to put her drama skills to the test, and there she meets Tommy: he’s kind, fun, attentive, and really hot! Nonetheless, there’s something eerie about the museum… The only link is to a girl called Niamh. She's been near these girls, even talked to them but the only thing they all have in common is that they all look like 'Irish girl' (Niamh). What do you do when you go for a summer course and find out people are dying left and right… and they all look similarly to you?
