Overview

"Ingenious and funny . . . Magnificent." — Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen and V for Vendetta

Jack Sparks died while writing this book.

It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.

Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.

Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed — until now.

"Wow. Seriously hard to put down." — M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts

Jason Arnopp is a British author and scriptwriter. His background is in journalism: he has worked on magazines such as Heat, Q, The Word, Kerrang!, SFX and Doctor Who Magazine. He has written comedy for BBC Radio 4 and official tie-in fiction for Doctor Who and Friday the 13th, but The Last Days of Jack Sparks is the first novel which is entirely Jason's own fault (though some may prefer to lay the blame on Jack...).

I read this book when I heard Ron Howard was optioning it. I figure any story Ron Howard wants to make into a movie is bound to be good. While I usually avoid stories about demonic possession, this one is a real page turner. Even if you try to guess the ending, it's not quite what you will guess. The story is ripe for a sequel, and I hope it gets one. While the story revolves around demonic possession, at it's core is a statement on the epidemic of narcissism rooted in social media. The lure of fame, so easily attained through social media and reality TV, is the perfect bait for evil in this novel.

I should not have trusted Ron Howard ' s review. The story line was convoluted and stretched out.
