Quick read of this book which continues the Friday The 13th saga. This is the first part of a series of books by Eric Morse which suggests the evil of Jason Voorhees can be passed onto anyone who wears the infamous hockey mask. While this is a similar theme to the film Jason Goes To Hell, it still would have been more exciting if the real Mr Voorhees had appeared somewhere - that would have been an awesome climax! Still, an enjoyable read although the language was a little basic and could have b ...more

"I've got a little secret for you. The only time you're safe―really safe―is when you're dead."

―Paul Sexton, Mother's Day, P. 107

This book presents some intriguing chronological considerations. While the events of Mother's Day can't be pinpointed for certain on the Friday the 13th timeline, when Boone is relating the legend of Jason Voorhees to his friends at what used to be Camp Crystal Lake, his telling of the story seems to suggest that this book may take place following shortly after the

MOTHER'S DAY, the first in what ended up being a 4-book YA/Friday the 13th tie-in series by Eric Morse, is actually pretty good.

No really. It's better than you'd expect. In fact, I really had fun reading this book for one primary reason: it reminded me a lot of one of the original Friday the 13th movies. It felt like a Friday the 13th movie (with implied nudity and implied gore), I saw the story happening in my head just as if it were a lost F13 film, which played a little loose with what we kn

Take a group of teenagers, a weekend of camping at Crystal Lake, ice cold beer and throw in a creepy old man and a hunter possessed by the spirit of Jason Voorhees (along with the severed head of Pamela Voorhees) and you have a classic Friday the 13th storyline. Which is exactly what this book did. It reminded me very much of the 80's horror movies I love. Eric Morse got the creepiness down pat for this novel. My only complaint is the shotgun...Jason is way more creative than that, but I still l ...more

I first read this book when I was like 15. I even remember where I was when I first read it. In the back of the car while we drove home from a summer trip to the ocean. Although it's a funny read, it is pretty reminiscent of a Friday the 13th movie. I liked the references that dated the book and made me laugh. Eric Morse is actually a decent author. He made the main character likable and the jerky characters very unlikable.

Again, love horror movies. "Friday the 13th" is a guilty pleasure. Love that there are books inspired by the movies!
