I'm curious, Addy, have you read Off Season?

message 12: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments I should have put the author's name. Maybe I'll edit it...lol. It's a hard one to find. Prob why nobody is joining.

Sorry to be late for the party, but I finally finished all my other reads that I was involved in. You now have my undivided attention, Addy!


message 18: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Yay! I've only read the prologue so no worries:)


message 19: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Ch6 I'm dying to know what Lynn looks like!


message 20: by Kenneth (new)

Kenneth McKinley | 1515 comments Mod
Loved the prologue. It opened up so many possibilities for the story to go. Can't wait to see where he takes us.


message 21: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments I made it to part 2. It's getting interesting. I really can't wait to see if Lynn will be revealed.


message 22: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments There is lots of speculation still about Lynn. I'm on ch10(view spoiler)


message 23: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Part 3 and not a whole lot going on but still enjoyable. Let's see if things pick up a bit.

Kenneth McKinley | 1515 comments Mod
Just started Ch 9. That grandfather is a real buzzkill for the holidays, or anytime for that matter.


message 25: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Yes, he's a horrible man. Let me know what you think of ch13. Thought it was pretty cool!

Kenneth McKinley | 1515 comments Mod
I'd love to. I have Noonspell, Evil Offspring, Dead to the World, The Tulpa, Premonition, Ghost, The Night Seasons, The Longest Night, The Banished, and Playmates by JN that I need to read. I'll let you pick since I did for this one.


message 29: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments I'd love to read The Banished. I think it's about aliens.

Addy | 4989 comments Never mind. I got that one mixed up with brother kind. I'll have to go back and see what I have.


message 31: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Ok. Let's read Premonition:) I'm gonna try and finish this one up today.


message 32: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Ch16 was a surprise!


message 33: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments I don't know why it's taking me so long to finish but I got 2 chapters left. I'll write my final thoughts tomorrow. Where r u at?


message 34: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments Finished this one though(view spoiler)

Kenneth McKinley | 1515 comments Mod
Chapter 18. Things are going to hell in this house.


message 36: by Kenneth (new)

Kenneth McKinley | 1515 comments Mod
I was disappointed in the ending, as well. I liked his writing style and the atmosphere was creepy. I think the premise was interesting, but the explanation/unmasking at the end left me with more questions than answers. I've learned with Williamson, much like Charles Grant, it's more about the ride than the destination.


message 37: by Addy (new)

Addy | 4989 comments I completely agree. Still, it was a pretty good ride.
