I'll add to the "lurking"--too much to read now to do an actual "re-read", but this but was one that I'll never forget!


Char  | 14241 comments Mod
Another lurker. An excellent tale!


Eat.Sleep.Lift.Read. (misanthropic_scribe) | 41 comments I'm in. I've been meaning to read this for ages.

Hopefully I can finish up 'salems lot by the 10th.

Scot | 639 comments I would love to lurk on this amazing book too.


message 11: by Tressa (new) - added it

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments I haven't read it yet and have been meaning to. I'd love to join. Somebody needs to kick my ass and make me read more so I can meet my 2014 goal. Been watching too much Walking Dead and American Horror Story; normally don't watch TV and would rather read. Ugh.

Yay, Tressa! I think you'll like it.

I concur with my esteemed colleague.

Bill (shiftyj1) | 4890 comments How can I not lurk for this one! Great cast of lurkers and readers alike. Good to see James will be lurking as well!

BIll! Now we're all set for the lurking. :)


message 23: by Tressa (new) - added it

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments I'm suddenly feeling pressured by lurkers. You're all like Aunt Bee standing around waiting to learn if I like her kerosene cukes.

Well? Do you like the cukes or not?


message 25: by Tressa (new) - added it

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments I prefer Clara Johnson's pickles, thank you very much.

Cool, cool. No pressure or anything. And nothing against Aunt Bee. She's a fine lady.

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments The best.

We shall see. I hope it's all good ;)


message 34: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (littlemissred3) | 252 comments Might as well add me to the lurkers too. (sigh) I've got several books I'm supposed to be reading this month and I just can't squeeze in any more right now.


message 35: by Tressa (new) - added it

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments I started last night.


Char  | 14241 comments Mod
Popping in to see how it's going. I guess it's just getting going now. :)

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments 50% in and I'm not jumping for joy. (view spoiler)

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments How's it going for you, Kate?

Any thoughts, Tressa?


Eat.Sleep.Lift.Read. (misanthropic_scribe) | 41 comments The dog.

Doh."


I was thinking the same thing!


message 42: by Ms. Nikki (last edited Nov 12, 2014 04:29PM) (new) - added it

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments Finished and really irritated by this read. Not in the unsettling way, but in the "for real?!?! way. So many unbelievable moments. One situation that did it for me was when Karen came by. (view spoiler)


message 43: by Bill (new) - rated it 5 stars

Bill (shiftyj1) | 4890 comments That's funny, Nikki. I really liked this one, but can see your points. I was on a Newman roll when I read this one and really liked it.


Char  | 14241 comments Mod
*stamping my foot*
Nikki, I'm so bummed. :(

LOL! That was my reaction! I actually yelled "NOOOO!", until I realized the kids were staring at me.... :(

I'm at 32% and liking it so far. I'm getting a creeping sense of dread every time he interacts with his neighbours.


message 47: by Ms. Nikki (new) - added it

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments I'm on my phone and can't do spoilers. I kept thinking there was something paranormal that was motivating the neighbors.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Bill :)

Don't be upset, Char. I was bummed because so many folks really liked it and I really wanted to also.

I give it to the Ben. He evoked so much rage from me on Andrew's behalf. Especially the
digging scene.


message 48: by Ms. Nikki (new) - added it

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments It's okay, Kimberly. I'm hard to please. Glad you liked it though :)


Reeda Booke (book-wizard) I hope you all don't mind that I was also lurking. I just finished reading this one and while I had some of the same thoughts that Nikki brought up, I was still horrified! I gave it 4 stars.

Andy calls his dog, Norman, his best friend, but keeps him outside in a kennel. Then after the first vandalism act on Andy's garden/car he still keeps the dog outside?

Doh."


I totally agree with you about the dog.
