Predictable ending to a boring trilogy!!!,
This review is from: Final Friends 3 the Graduation (Final Friends) (Paperback)
This whole series is strikingly uneventful as nothing relevant to the plot happens till the last chapter in each instalment! I usually adore Pike novels but this one was excruciating to trudge through! The deaths were made to look like accidents up until the last 40 pages of a near 700 page trilogy, placing the characters in little to no danger! Personally I felt the entire series could be condensed into one book and maybe then it would be tolerable, maybe even somewhat enjoyable!
Also I felt cheated as I guessed the murderer and there motive. The question of their sanity was predictable from book one! I foresaw the "Clark" thing unfolding early on and knew almost immediately what was truly happening! Next to nothing of interest happend throughout and I felt I had to "speed read" through most of it to get passed the tiring filler, and unending characterization.
I realize this was one of Pike's earliest books written so I'm willing to forgive and, for the love of god, forget! He has much better books out there such as Whisper of Death, The Last Vampire, and See You Later! I would recommend reading one of those before diving into the stingingly boring currents of this semingly never ending, and somewhat long winded series!
