Christopher Pike is an author that never fails to make me feel emotion when I read. Now, I know what you must be thinking. "Reading is supposed to always make you feel

emotions." Well, it doesn't. I enjoy it, but not too many authors can make me feel more than curious about the story. Pike's novels usually make me sad which I'm sure I

have mentioned before in a review. The Season of Passage is yet another emotional rollercoaster of feelings. Sadly though, the book has little else going for it. Sure,

the story is interesting enough but it gets a bit ridiculous at times and you, or rather I, found myself wishing it would just fucking end already! It is about three

times the length of most Pike young-adult novels (don't be fooled by that 352 page count) and I think it would have been better if it had been more like those. I mean,

the only difference between young-adult and actual adult fiction is language and sex scenes and what teenager isn't constently thinking about fucking, and having sex

scenes haha?! Anyway, the book almost seems to demand a positive reaction but I give it a rather enthusiastic farewell which contrasts nicely when we go back in time

several days to when I welcomed TSOP into my home with open arms and an offer of a warm fire.
Okay, this is getting a bit craptacular. In short, a good science fiction/horror novel but I didn't find it memorable despite its massive efforts to be so.
