This is going to be a hard review to write, I can't give away too much. I want the reader to experience everything first hand.
This is a fantastic read. This has to be hands down one of the *best* Pretty Little Liars books. It seems that the Liars have had enough of A, and all of A's bulling, taunting, and threats. The PLL's go looking for A. As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it, and the PLL's do. A isn't anyone's coward, A takes the PLL's head on. Pretty soon, other people are looking for the PLL's. A isn't just one step ahead of the PLL's, A is more like 5 or 6 steps ahead of the Liars. Then when the PLL's need help the most, the people they most trust, turn on them, and they're alone. All alone.
What makes this work is the emotional aspect to this book. We get to the the effect of the psychological mind games that A has played on the liars, and pushes one of the liars to her limits. That was a very emotional scene, and my eyes got misty because my heart for broke for the PLL that was pushed to the edge of the abyss.
This is just so much more I want to say about this book, but it would just be spoilers. Just trust me, if you've read the books in the series, then you must read it, you'll thank me later. If you haven't read the series yet, then start with the first book, and enjoy the ride.
As usual with the hardback books, if you look under the dust jacket, you get a special message from A. I love that touch to the series.
In this go around a serial killer is lose, and not only has he targeted Cross, but his entire family. Cross has no idea who he is, or why he's targeting him and his family, but the more questions Cross has, the closer the killer gets, and this killer isn't alone. That's all I want to say about the plot, anything more would be spoilers.
For me, there were a few things wrong with the book. 1) The killers went by different names throughout the book, and it was hard to keep them straight. 2) Also, at one point, the killers used the same first initial in their names, and it was hard to tell them apart. For me, for part of the book, the writing style was off. It just didn't feel like a Patterson book. 3) There was another part to the plot that seemed like "fluff". I can't say what because it would be a spoiler. 4) I really didn't care for the ending, not at all. You can't end books the way this one ended. Honestly, I felt cheated.
The book has some good tension in it between the killers and Cross. If you've read the past books in the series, then you know what to expect. This was a good read, just not great.
I wanted a Blue Ray player for my basement and this is a perfect one. I have a Panasonic payer on my main tv, and it takes a while for a movie to be read, not with the Sony one. I put a movie in, and within 10 seconds, the movie is playing. I can't say enough good things about this player. If you are wanting a great player at a great price, then this is for you. Get it now, and thank me later....Read more
First off, I want to say that it was better than I thought it would be. I gave the past few books one and two stars, so I didn't have high hopes for this one. Stephanie has to go after Uncle Sammy, who everyone loves, and everyone want to hide and protect, so that will make it harder for Stephanie to get her hands on. With all of that going on, she has to worry about two more things. 1) There's a serial killer on the lose and 2) there's a giraffe that running around Trenton.
The giraffe part was pretty silly and over the top, but it was kind of funny and amusing. There's no surprises with Joe, Ranger and the rest of the gang.
This book really doesn't offer anything new, but it was a read that held my attention.
I'm cutting diet coke from my diet, and a friend suggested I try these drink mixes to substitute the diet coke. This drink truly is amazing. The taste is awesome and it's very refreshing. I tried it on a whim, and I'm glad I did. I cannot truly say enough good things about this product. If you get this, I can *promise* you won't be sorry. Get it now, and thank me later....Read more
I picked this up on a whim, and over all, I'm glad I did. This adds a Honky Tonk twang to our christmas carols. It's a refreshing touch to them. A lot of the time, we get a "traditional" version to the songs, and it's the same ole, same ole. Not with this, this is a toe tapping charm. My favorite is I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas. I've always loved that one. I have to be honest, Nuttin' For Christmas grated on my nerves.
Overall, bottom line, I like it. If you add this to your Christmas Collection, you won't be sorry.
I'll admit, I'm a fan of The Family Guy, and MacFarlane. I had no idea that he has such a wonderful voice. I was actually blow away, and that's saying something. His rendition of The Sadder But Wiser left me speechless. I can't say enough good things about this CD. If you like the "Golden Era of music", then this is a must have for you. If you get it, I can promise that you won't be sorry. I know I wasn't....Read more
Charlotte loves to read, and one day she's at a library, and gets a book and brings it home.....then a card falls out, and her life will change. Sometimes it changes for the good, and sometimes for the bad, depending on if she had the card. Then some threatening texts comes her way, and she soon realizes that something is in the shadows waiting for her, and this thing has special plans for Charlotte and her friends. Charlotte and her friend must find a way to get rid of the card. That's all I want to say about the plot, if I saw anything more, it would be spoilers, and I don't want to do that to the reader. I want them to experiences the surprises in the book first hand.
This is a very good read. It's creepy, and actually scary. I really enjoyed this book. This is a book for all ages. Just make sure the lights are on.
