It took me getting a little ways into it before it grabbed me,but it did manage to do so.The Whisper Man is well written,has the nice little creepy kid's rhyme to warn of the boogey man, & the added mystery of whether or not there's a real live one in town.It feels like this books needs a prequel to tell the original story,then you could maybe have a better feel for the current one.

The description and cover immediately got my attention and the story itself did not disappoint. Adams lays out the story and scene wonderfully, seamlessly switching from past to present to tell the story of an asylum, a kind soul named Joe, and his two young friends who later set out to find answers for their lost and forgotten old friend.

From the creepy atmosphere of the new, big house that no one else wanted to the eerie little occurrences that everyone denies, the shifting moods and temperaments of the family members to the freak snowstorm that has everyone housebound, the author did a very good job of setting the scene and drawing me in.

Another great addition to the Kane & Alton series.I sailed through,not wanting to ever stop reading.Black Rock Falls definitely has to be explored further;it seems to attract every sort of undesirable character possible.There is a long list of suspects but I do enjoy characters that you love to hate.Wasn't 100% certain of the killer until the reveal,which is great.

The story progressed quickly, sometimes feeling a little rushed,but was more about Eddison's history/story.So if that's what you're looking for,you're in luck.If you're looking for another Butterfly Garden,this might not be for you.It was like reading two stories at once instead of them flowing together organically.I didn't want o bail,it just left me wanting a little.

When I requested this book I didn't know that it was a part of a series.That being said,the writing was very well done and I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything having not read the previous books in the series (added to my tbr now).This was an enjoyable read that got my attention quickly and kept me hooked throughout. It was a good story to get lost in and try to figure out.

I've loved reading these books, they really are addicting and I couldn't wait to get to the next one. But tonight I start the last one (#9) and before even getting to page 1 I know I'll be sad that there isn't another one right there waiting for me. Thankfully #10 comes out next month, but then I'll just be stuck with this feeling all over again
Great start to my morning. This series just gets better and better with each book. I start one as soon as I finish the last because I love them but will be so disappointed there isn't more when I get to the last one
Took this guy out for a little afternoon lunch while his dad and sisters went tubing. We had a nice time talking about nature, serial killers, and books. I've been getting him into reading more than just informative texts like nature books and encyclopedias and we got to discuss some potential future reads. Last week he finished Jurassic Park and tomorrow he will start the sequel.
