Like Ernest Clines’ brilliant Ready Player One, we can also kick back with some 80s trivia as all of the chapter headings are 80s songs. and i kind of wanted to read that book - a sharp twist away from my expectations, rattling reader-me from my ridealong absorption of abby’s belief in demonic possession back onto firmer ground with a turn of events equally “earned” by events thus far. Adolescence is a complicated time, and some really bright people think that when the adult emerges, it’s like you’re being taken over by a different person. In Charleston, the day you become an adult is the day you learn to ignore your neighbor’s drunk driving and focus instead on whether he submitted a paint-color change proposal to the Board of Architectural Review. My Best Friend's Exorcismpossesses you with that perfect 80s horror vibe fromsentence one and doesn't let go until the truly moving ending.

I'd have preferred a different ending though with Halley's comet, if you've read it you'll know what I mean.That is extremely hard to do without making it too cheesy but as I said, this all takes place in the 80s. You see the bond that is created between these two girls, Abby and Gretchen, from Abbys 10th ET themed roller disco party.

Abby's investigation leads her to some startling discoveries--and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Abby and Gretchen will be determined by a single question: Is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?This is about what you would think: a snarky and fun pseudo spoof of an exorcist themed horror / black comedy.

Straight away I was enamoured with Gretchen and Abby's friendship, it felt born out of necessity and Hendrix creates a world for the reader where this is the most natural friendship in the world. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone--not just fans of 80s pop culture (although they would love this! He's also the jerk behind the Stoker award-winning Paperbacks from Hell, a history of the 70's and 80's horror paperback boom, which contains more information about Nazi leprechauns, killer babies, and evil cats than you probably need. However, I don't think this book will alienate any of the younger generation of readers because 80s pop culture is super celebrated and people who can't relate on a personal level, will at least get it on the same level that they get what's going on in Stranger Things, which is wildly popular for all ages, you know?

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. If you lived through the 1980s then you'll probably remember the rash of Satanism that struck middle-class America during those harrowing times. In case you didn’t know, I am a huge metalhead and to see Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Guns N’ Roses, and my all-time favorite band SLAYER mentioned in this novel totally rocked. Y el segundo motivo es que al ser uno de los temas que más ronda por la literatura y el cine obviamente es de lo más manoseado que hay por lo que es muy poco posible que sorprenda o innove de alguna manera. This book is about high school, friends and weirdos, demonic stuff, exorcisms ish, troubled families and kids, and probably several more things that I have forgotten.

Like an unholy hybrid of Beaches and The Exorcist, My Best Friend s Exorcism blends teen angst, adolescent drama, unspeakable horrors, and a mix of 80s pop songs into a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller. Countdown to girl from elementary school who was obsessed with horses discovering this review and trolling me for life in 3, 2, . It's as much a novel about navigating the social minefield of adolescent friendships and peer relationships as it is about possession. What started out as a horrifying reality for one of the characters became a place for the power of friendship to shine. parade of alternate explanations go, it’s actually an interesting experiment to see how long you can make a possession novel read like a teen-problem novel - how long you can hold off before you must choose.S. means one thing before you read the book and one much more specific thing after, and is the part that made me get as close to emotional as i can when reading. I'm not really sure why anyone would rate this book anything lower than five stars, unless of course, they didn't understand the premise of the book.
