The diologue was so cheesy, I found myself cringing in near pain, and if I read the word "cheeky" one more time, I could have snapped. Also the book was overloaded with gramatical errors and misspellings. In one chapter a boy was fixing his Camaro and three paragraphs later the car was a Corvette. It was as if the editor was extremely tired or on a five day coke binge while checking over this novel.
The plot was extremely dull as compared to the movies, with lame deaths and hideously boring characters. Natasha Rhodes took an eternity to get to the point with anything of slight interest. It seemed the victims died off painstakingly slowly and when they were killed Rhodes seems to skip over their deaths with only a sentence or two detailing it. Also, the deaths were a complete dud, extremely dissapointing. One woman got bit by a spider, one was impaled by a drumstick, and then there was the woman who had an air conditioner fall on her.
Everything about this book screamed amature. There really wasnt any part in the book that I felt passionately about. Watch the movies, but skip this book.
I really enjoyed this book, it's a pretty good page turner. It follows the plot to the movies pretty much, opens with an accident, girl has vison and saves a group of people. Said survivors begin dying horribly.
The deaths where pretty cool, nice and gory at times. The book was quite suspencefull and I was hooked on it.
I had a few minor problems with it though. It didn't seem to follow some of the rules, interviening did nothing!
Some of the characters really annoyed me, that damn Eric, I wished for a long and painful demise on that dumbass!
Also some of the deaths where pretty cheap, I wish they spent more time one them. Also there was some sections in the book I didn't really like, I felt they kind of took me out of the story a little.
But I do recommend this, if you are a fan of FD, this book should do you.
as you can't find it in the stores) due to my love of the 2 Movies, along with the intriguing concept. Didn't expect much.
Was pleasantly surprised as the book has fresh believable characters. The vision and catastrophe this time around is during a rock concert in a small venue (Movie 1 was a Plane Crash; Movie 2 was a massive highway disaster). Vividly & horrifically described.
While the movie-premise was the book basis there was intrigue and real suspense due to the authors misdirection and sudden scene shifting. The writing is cinematic with clear visuals and clever. Characterization was good but could have been taken farther. Another divergence from 'movie-tie-in' books is that it was 400 pages vs the obligatory 250. Give it a shot.
On the note so great side is that the editor must've been on vacation. One whole chapter the main character 'Jess' became 'Tess' - huh? And there were many typos, "She reached up to scratch her noise (nose).
Am currently reading the second book, to which there's filaments from this book, so read them in order.
Two notes on book 2 (Destination Zero)
A. At the end of this book there's a 20 page preview / except of book 2, nothing unusual about that. HOWever those 20 pages do not appear in book 2, so it's a bonus - although not heralded that way (Editor still sleeping?)
B. Book 2 diverges somewhat from the movie & first book plotline and adds to the mystique. More on that in another review.
End Note: A third movie comes out in January. Movie adaptations are also due out then, along with Book 5 of 'this' series.
