Library Journal - Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Lilly is stoked to have scored an all-night volunteer slot on her university's FM station, spinning cutting-edge tunes, chatting live with local night owls, and dishing out exclusive pop gossip until a regular caller begins harassing her during both on- and off-air hours. The Australian author drew from her personal experience in community radio, which included receiving hate mail from an obsessed listener. By alternating narrative points of view between stalkee and stalker, she attempts to present a fast-paced and compelling thriller that is also psychologically instructive. Unfortunately, the meatless characterizations on both sides of the crime make it difficult to connect with the story emotionally, and, while the breathless pacing may appeal to readers unconcerned with juicier literary subtleties, others may wind up feeling they've been dragged over the story rather than properly sucked into it. Teens otherwise attracted to the novel's high-interest plot may be deterred by some of the idioms that are sometimes rendered further puzzling by compounding uniquely Australian usage with esoteric broadcast terminology. Despite its shortcomings, Stalker is a realistic novel that might have a place in collections in need of a fictional treatment of this very real and often misunderstood brand of crime.-Jeffrey Hastings, Highlander Way Middle School, Howell, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

The Stalker 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Zoey is out celebrating with friends when she meets Peter in the pub. He buys her a drink and seems friendly enough but there is something about him that creeps Zoey out. After a couple chance encounters, Peter tells Zoey that he could help out her journalism career. Zoey is excited but the more she is around Peter the more she is unnerved. But if he could help her career there is nothing to worry about, right? This is a great short story. It is a classic case of a stalker. Zoey gets the creeps from Peter but she doesn’t listen to her feelings. I take Krav Maga classes and this is one of the first things that you are taught in self defense, listen to that little voice inside telling you something. I loved the ending! This is a great thriller and left me wanting other stories from Karly Edwards. This is one short story that I recommend everyone checking out. I received The Stalker for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
