I usually don't write reviews but this is a must read. It was recommended on booklending.com and was .99 for the Kindle version so I thought why not. It is by far the best book I have ever paid a dollar for.

It starts out with a terrible shooting at a high school where several students were killed and injured. The shooter David Ray turned the gun on himself at the end of his rampage. Twenty years later some of the survivors are still trying to deal with the aftermath of the shooting and decided to have a reunion for closure. Several have witnessed a haunting at the high school that was closed after the shooting. There are more murders that cannot be explained. Can a ghost kill someone? Is it David's ghost or a demon?

I gave this book a five and rarely rate a book that high. Bennington doesn't bore you with details that are not needed. If he tells you something remember it because it will come back into play later. Again, this is a great book. Reunion will keep you on your toes and it definitely grabs your attention from the beginning.

This novel starts out heartbreaking! Jump ahead twenty years and it turns suspenseful, and oh so creepy. It was so great, I loved the shift! The characters are so well written that they reminded me of the kids I went to high school with. David Ray is a character that you have to hate because of what he does, but at the same time you feel so bad for him. He's been through so much and treated so badly in his short life. I loved how Jeff Bennington gave the survivors each strengths to go along with the weaknesses of their PTSD. Reunion is a book that will have you glued to the pages, and will leave you thinking about it long after you've finished.

I just finished forcing myself to finish this novel. I really must encourage you not to bother. The writing has all of the skill of a Harlequin without at least the benefit of a little steaminess. The character development is nonexistent. These people are flat and one dimensional. There is a brief attempt to make the ending spiritual but that fell flat as well. The story is a good one but this is so badly written it was a chore to read. This is the first one star I've ever given!

This book of fiction takes us into a world that is all too realistic in the horrifying trend of school violence that has been taking place too often in our society.
Bullying and violence have no place in our schools and the practice should be stamped out before it causes violence.
The author starts out with a terrible shooting at a high school where several students were killed and injured. Thankfully, at the end of the horrific rampage, the deranged shooter turns the gun on himself. However, later on, the killer becomes a menacing ghost that haunts the school, even though it was closed after the shooting.
I liked the way the author tells you something that pops up later in the book. Twenty years after the shooting, some of the survivors are still trying to deal with the aftermath. The scars are still open sores for the survivors and the trauma is not over, but beginning again after they decide to have a reunion to get final closure. I don't want to give away the ending, but this book will certainly grab and keep your attention.

I continue to be amazed at books like this one which receive so many 4 & 5 star ratings. I have to assume most are from friends of the author because it really is nothing close to a great book. The book had great potential and an intriguing premise but the delivery was flat. The author fell short of delivering a strong psychological thriller by using too much literal description and boring dialogue. There were so many exclamation marks in the dialogue that I thought it was written by a teenage girl instead of an adult male. The author tried to tell us too much about the characters with boring descriptions instead of leading us to conclusions through characterization. Example, "he had a quiet spirit and a tell it like is mantra". I think the reader could surmise this through the characters actions without having to be given a summary of his/her traits. The most developed character seemed to be the killer, which is basically out of the story after the beginning. I also thought it would have been more effective to begin the story with the reunion itself and then through flashbacks tell about the massacre and the individual stories of the victims.

The end went off on a side road when the author started mixing God, religion, poltergeist, demons and the occult. Those ideas don't mix well. It wasn't bad enough that the killer had been abused by basically everyone but he was also involved unwittingly in satanic rituals? Too much. The end was way too preachy for a "supernatural thriller" and it seemed the author threw it in thinking to would appeal to Christian readers-it didn't appeal to this Christian.

If I'd remembered that I'd paid only a dollar for this book, I would have deleted it from my Kindle midway through. But I forced myself to finish it, which took forever, and I was sorry. I can't fathom the positive reviews for this book; I thought it was badly written, with undeveloped characters, weak dialogue, and unoriginal ideas. It was a complete waste of my time, and I'll never buy anything by this author again.
