[I originally received a copy of this book through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. It just took me ages to get to it.]Kinda OK in terms of the storyline, but this is one of the books that felt “I’m going to like it” in the beginning, and in fact… Well, no.The 1986 parts were more striki...

Funny story: My loan LITERALLY expired when I only had 13 minutes left. Luckily, I was able to recheck it out immediately and finish it. That's the only downside to Overdrive: Very strict loan periods. Overall, I liked this one quite a bit. Tudor is a good writer and the plot was engaging enough ...

This book felt very familiar. If you grew up reading King and watching many an 80’s movie, you’ll no doubt feel the same way. It has a beautiful sense of place and a slow sense of creeping dread but there wasn’t anything totally new here and by the end I was beginning to just wish it would hurry up ...

This is pretty dazzling debut, especially given all the clunky "just OK" mysteries that litter my house, library history, recommendations and my Read piles. I'll take a mystery no matter what, but it's very nice to get a good one. As I read this, I was reminded repeatedly of less successful (in my...

"The Chalk Man" is a thriller set in a small English town and told in two timelines: the summer of 1986, when the main characters are twelve year's old, and forty years later when someone challenges what really happened in 1986. It is a very atmospheric piece that captures both the feel of being t...

This was an excellent book that had me guessing throughout. At one point, maybe twice, I had reason to point a finger at all the boys involved in the book. I just kept going back and forth. It was crazy!The author did a great job including into this book, suspense; intrigue; much creepiness with a h...

Tengo que reconocer que, cualquier cosa que venga provista de cierto halo de expectación, me da algo de repelús. Me pasó con "Los hombre que no amaban a las mujeres", que como todo el mundo lo leía en aquella época (finales del 2008), yo me resistía (error), y me pasó cuando el Valencia fichó al min...

When you're twelve years old, playing with your friends and having fun is all that matters. That's what Eddie and his four childhood friends did when they were around each other. They even had an unusual way of communicating with each other at times; leaving messages in chalk. The story begins i...

After reading the blurb for The Chalk Man, I was hoping for a creepy and engrossing read. The prologue does have that element, but it quickly went downhill from there. The story is rather dry and the pacing is extremely slow, to the point that it almost drags much of the time. So much of the book is...
