I was gifted this audio book for free in exchange for a full and honest review, thank you David :○)
Okay so 1st of all the narration, it was ..Show More »good, not brilliant, but okay. I could clearly distinguish the different characters and voices and I wasn't scratching my head wondering who was talking.
The book? Hmmm I have to say that it wasn't my favourite I'm afraid, it was too young adult for me, I love YA but the tone of the book made it feel like it was a couple of very young boys, and it was they were 14, but something just didn't gel with me about the story.
Eric is a loner, a nobody, a freak, a "crazy train" the reason for this? He sees things, phantoms to be precise, he has been to a councillor for this, and because of this he is a target for bullies. Apart from the local drunk no one believes Erik about his phantoms.
Every day he is targeted, that is until Kyle turns up, he tells the bullies where to go and they become firm friends, blood brothers!
They do the usual things that 14yr old do, play Nintendo (remember Duck Hunt?) play knock-a-door Ginger while sneaking out of their bedrooms at night, and stealing tobacco from their brothers wardrobe "just to try it"
People start to grow increasingly tired in the town and some completely disappear, and Erik is the key to the whole thing!
I would love to say that I really enjoyed it, but as I was given the book for an honest review that is what I will do. Unfortunately I won't be reading book #2 in the series.
