I daydream. Usually I'm floating in the creek or the pool with my ears submerged and the only sound I can hear is my internal voice chattering happily away. (less)

I'm not easily spooked by the supernatural. It's easy to walk boldly when you're not a believer in ghosts and such. So when I read the back cover and big name reviewers deemed this as one seriously creepy story, I rolled my eyes as I tossed the book ...more

Well written. Suspenseful and perhaps a touch of social commentary with an excellent plot line. The writer has a definitive way with words.

I've not been a long term fan of Anne Rice. I hadn't went much further than Interview with the Vampire, which I loved.
The Wolf Gift, as expected, is well written. She's clearly talented and despite the fact that I did not like the story, the writing

Lauren Oliver
“Mama, Mama, help me get home
I'm out in the woods, I am out on my own.
I found me a werewolf, a nasty old mutt
It showed me its teeth and went straight for my gut.

Mama, Mama, help me get home
I'm out in the woods, I am out on my own.
I was stopped by a vampire, a rotting old wreck
It showed me its teeth and went straight for my neck.

Mama, Mama, put me to bed
I won't make it home, I'm already half-dead.
I met an Invalid, and fell for his art
He showed me his smile, and went straight for my heart.

-From "A Child's Walk Home," Nursery Rhymes and Folk Tales”
