Quick & Dirty: A suspenseful thriller filled with wonderful writing, only to leave you wide awake at night and unable to sleep.

Opening Sentence: I walk through walls.

The Review:

The infamous Daniel Waters has written another paranormal masterpiece. Break My Heart 1,000 Times is filled with thrills, chills, and a large paranormal presence, that it will leave readers transfixed. Seeing the dead is a part of life, and since the "Event," the aftermath has continued. Ghosts were not an abnormal part of life anymore, it was now a part of the norm. Even in Veronica's household, her father's ghost is a constant reminder of how life was now. Sickness and lingering death, environmental damage, and chaos were the result of the horrific "Event."

Mr. Bittner, one of Veronica's high school teachers had lost his daughter, Eva. A ghost named Mary Greer, a remembrance of Bittner's daughter, was killed in February, eight years ago. Mary had been one of the first ghosts to make regular appearances, immediately after the "Event." Mary had appeared to Mr. Bittner before her death, and led to allegations of her murder. Every teen at Montcrief high school had accused Mr. Bittner as Mary's killer, and only a poem that someone mysteriously left on his desk, was the proof of his innocence. Veronica and Kirk take it upon themselves to investigate, and in doing so has uncovered an unimaginably dark and dire plot.

Ever since the "Event," Veronica Calder stopped fearing ghosts. For Veronica, the ghosts were irritating results of the "Event." The most disturbing thing for Veronica was knowing that like her father, people she knew were gone, and they were not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chapter by Chapter's review of Break My Heart 1,000 Times November 18, 2012
By MaryAnn
How would I classify Break My Heart 1,000 Times by Daniel Waters? A morbidly dark Dystopian type read. After what is called as the "Event", ghosts are popping up everywhere. Ghosts of loved one, ghosts of people from the past...even ghosts of those who have been murdered. The event annihilated millions of people, leaving in its wake, those who now have to live day to day with daily ghostly encounters.

The way in which Break My Heart 1,000 Times opens up, you think that you are watching the everyday morning routine of a regular family, primarily Veronica's family. But to my surprise, the everyday routine of your father sitting at the kitchen table reading the paper and drinking from his cup of coffee, is one that is being repeated daily by the ghost of said father. I admit that after reading that, I was left with some chills. Not only do we witness her watch her father relive the same moment over and over again, we are also introduced to a ghost that has newly appeared in Veronica's home. A ghost named Brian, who plays a major role in the events in Break My Heart 1,000 Times.

Where most everyone who has been affected by the "Event" is, more or less, going through their daily motions...surviving another day amongst these ghosts, Veronica is more alive than the rest. But despite her lust for life, there are those who seek to snuff her candle out because of their own hidden agenda. Enter super creepy teacher, Mr. August Bittner. Having lost his daughter, post "Event", Mr. Bittner is lead to believe that the only way for him to be able to have his daughter, Eva, back he must take a life...on February 29... every leap year, believing that the veil between our world and the world beyond is most thinnest on February 29.

2.0 out of 5 stars Break My Heart 1,000 Times January 5, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Veronica lives in a world that in shadow of a cataclysmic event that killed 2 million people. In the days that follow, ghost can be seen at every turn, like broken records replaying over and over. However, something much more nefarious is on the horizon for Veronica, someone wants her dead.

I want to begin by stating that I think that Daniel Waters has such a fascinating imagination. If you haven't read his Generation Dead series, I would definitely recommend it.

Break My Heart 1,000 times was simply okay, from beginning to end. I gave this book two stars because I really thought his world building was very good and different. However, I have to say that everything past that point is merely okay. The characters weren't particularly remarkable, the plot was predictable, and so was the ending. I also was annoyed by the fact that a large portion of the book centers around this "event", and yet nothing about the event is explained. I'm not suggesting that the cause is what I was seeking, but instead details about what happened. Yet as I waded through this book expecting to find answers, none appeared. Also, I really had to push myself to finish this novel , which I really dislike doing because it makes reading a chore. I wouldn't suggest this read to others.

The idea of this book is really cool- the world and situation he creates is really unique. Unfortunately it doesn't deliver, I cannot imagine what the author could have done to fix it, but Waters' idea of a climax leaves so much to be desired and some of the situation he creates are straight out of a B horror movie (The type where the girl does something so dumb you find yourself juggling with question: "Is better for the gene pool if she just gets killed?" I got this for my kindle and I am glad I didn't purchase it a full price. I read somewhere it would be a movie in the future...let's hope it is better than the book.
