    Again Pike takes what seems to be a simple story and makes it incredibly creative The back blurb unfortunately makes it seem like the story is focused on some stranger to town, Tom, but that is definitely not true In fact he only plays a small role in the story later on what actually happens is the book opens where Mary is consumed with grief and guilt over the death of her boyfriend Jerry She attends a party and seance, and from there it just gets weird Twisted, but delightfully weird.Har Again Pike takes what seems to be a simple story and makes it incredibly creative The back blurb unfortunately makes it seem like the story is focused on some stranger to town, Tom, but that is definitely not true In fact he only plays a small role in the story later on what actually happens is the book opens where Mary is consumed with grief and guilt over the death of her boyfriend Jerry She attends a party and seance, and from there it just gets weird Twisted, but delightfully weird.Hard to put down like most of his stuff, the writing style shines as brightly as the pacing does when it goes through the twisted and surreal plot Not possible to guess everything that goes on here, but it s dark and demented in the end The characters offer interesting contrasts to each other, with Mary being too beautiful to be true, the long time friend who acts like a man after all, and the upset brother who still stands by his friends as long as the truth comes out Tom is a minor role in a much larger story.It s grim and a little depressing but it s definitely worth reading Another winner from the Pike library

    He almost has to have been parodying himself.Sometimes Mr Pike will use a simile or whatever that s just so ridiculous his eyes were as deep as European history , I have to message Scott Crawford with it.Me He looked terribly uncomfortable, like an ironing board crammed into a closet two sizes too small Scott oh god.Scott has he ever written full on porn Me No, but if he did, I bet it would be awesome.Scott that d be a fun literary exercise.Scott writing porn in the style of christop He almost has to have been parodying himself.Sometimes Mr Pike will use a simile or whatever that s just so ridiculous his eyes were as deep as European history , I have to message Scott Crawford with it.Me He looked terribly uncomfortable, like an ironing board crammed into a closet two sizes too small Scott oh god.Scott has he ever written full on porn Me No, but if he did, I bet it would be awesome.Scott that d be a fun literary exercise.Scott writing porn in the style of christopher pike

    I liked this a lot better in early high school, which is admittedly hen I was this books target audience I wouldn t go into this book as an adult and expect a masterpiece With that said though, it is a fun and simple little thriller that I would give a 13 15 year old and expect them to enjoy it.

    The synopsis on the back of the book is irrelevant It discusses a character that appears for about one chapter of the entire book He has a purpose and he s incredibly likable, but this is not his story He s a rarely visible sidekick and it makes aboslutely no sense to focus the synopsis of the entire book on him.The pacing feels sporadic throughout the book All told, I have no idea how many days went by Maybe two The book begins during the aftermath of a tragic event and it s quite a while The synopsis on the back of the book is irrelevant It discusses a character that appears for about one chapter of the entire book He has a purpose and he s incredibly likable, but this is not his story He s a rarely visible sidekick and it makes aboslutely no sense to focus the synopsis of the entire book on him.The pacing feels sporadic throughout the book All told, I have no idea how many days went by Maybe two The book begins during the aftermath of a tragic event and it s quite a while before we get the whole story about what happened to cause this tragedy Eventually it all did come together, but it took a while to get into the groove.I despised the main character Her behavior was erratic and her personality was obnoxious She was an emotional void and so disgustingly selfish that her end game turn around did nothing to me but make me feel it was all somehow just a ploy to make her look good, that it was insincere, that it was one last cry for attention The main character was also the villain in most respectsGod moding was a huge flaw in this book The main character was literally the homecoming queen, an alien commander, a self proclaimed goddess, and a reincarnated queen of Egypt There were also many instances throughout of her being in just the right place at just the right time and knowingthan was possible with no rational explanation.The backstory of the reincarnated characters previous lives made the book for me, and is the sole reason I am keeping my copy It could have should have been a book in itself The love story is super tragic and exciting The actual plot of the book which I guess was supposed to be a whodunnit is far less interesting

    Not my favorite Pike book I liked the bits of Historical stuff mixed in but I had one major issue with this book.That issue is I had no idea what was going on at any point all through the book I still do not know I loved Mr Pike s writing but this one was one of my least favorites by him.I just understood nothing It was a bizarre story and one that even now, I cannot really say what the plot was.

    The Visitor should have stayed home in this case
