I forgot to put this one on my reading list, I just finished it last night and the climax is building. Now it is on to Part 6 and Asylum. It will be interesting to see who the culprit is..

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

If you thought the patients in the other books were bad off, wait until you meet Paul. He is perhaps the first victim of the asylum who is not wholly innocent, and if you've played the video game which follows the events of these books, you know just how Paul ended up, too. It's not pretty.

Ed's visions are truly spinetingling and watching a good man combat the curse left my heart in my throat the entire time. It's not my absolute favorite of the series, but a great read regardless, and I was abs

Ed Becker brings a fine antique dresser home from the old Asylum, a restoration project, an investment. His daughter Amy discovers an old stereoscope with a set of old pictures hidden inside one of the dresser drawers. The pictures, oddly enough, are of his own home, only with different furniture, his grandmother's house perhaps? Ed has prophetic nightmares, vivid, horrible memories brought to life. He tells his wife Bonnie about it, but she tries, unsuccessfully, to convince him otherwise.

Only gave this story 1 star. Just wasn't a good part of the series to me. Book 5 of 6 to the Blackstone Chronicles Approximately 83 pages. I will be glad to finish this series. Huge John Saul fan but ready to change it up a bit. Hopefully Gonna enjoy getting into a whole different genre and read Beverly Lewis next. Amish stories!

The story of this one is reaching and slightly silly, but it's one of the more depressing side tales. More about the asylum and main story comes into play, which makes sense since the next serial story is the final. Characters are still little thin, but Oliver is likeable enough for the most part.

After this book, I'm pretty sure I've solved the mystery of who and why, but I'm still not sure about how. Off to read book six and find out how close to or far away from the truth I really am.

So I'm assuming that the stereoscope is an old-fashioned view finder? Of all the objects, it seems the least impressive
