This one grabbed me from the get go. I think it had to do with the main character Kurt Snaber. He's one of those guys you can't help but root for. Then he meets Heidi and she's probably just as interesting. The ending left me wanting more in both a good and bad way. The story is very creepy at times, especially when their alone at his house, but there's some kind of presence. There is a lot of sex in this book, so if your not in to that sort of thing, you may want to skip this one. Sex isn't the main theme, though. Overall, this ones very good and I would recommend it.

This book had a great beggining and interesting characters. The front of the book pulls you in quickly. Immediately it brings you into the mind of a disturbed individual.
The next section of the book deals with the move and a new love. Then the ,"fright". However there is no real fear because it falls short story wise of getting you scared or making your mind stretch into a possibility of fear. The story continues to hold you however on enjoying the characters.

Not a bad read but not a favorite. Too much focus on meditation over and over. The ending twist falls short of a curious gasp you would hope for. I give this a three star rating out of five, not dissappointed that I read it but not excited enough to rave.

    Unfortunately boring...

    I read a short story by Scribner so I thought I'd check this out. Overall, it was an extremely boring story that focused on heavy meditation. Half way through I realized that nothing much was happening but I hoped that the story would pick up. Unfortunately, it never did, and I was upset that I wasted my time reading it. Sorry Scribner!

    Didn't care for it much.

    I found this rather boring. Kept reading and hoping it would get better. It just didn't grab my attention. I did enjoy the relationship between the two main characters though.

    This had potential but took a corny turn. Left me a little angry in the end, it just fell flat for me.

    Extremely Boring!

    Always like to finish a book I start even if it's not that interesting in the beginning, in hopes it will get better as I continue to read...well no such luck with this book! Was a complete bore through and through. Stupid ending, but not a surprise for a stupid book. Don't believe the "good" reviews.

    Utter Crap

    This is another example of an appallingly bad "book." A 14 year old could do better.
