This book was meh I expected action, panic and frenzy, just like the blurb said there would be Sadly the book starts slow, it takes a big part for them to actually go to the asylum hospital After that there are some scary moments, but most of the time it is Greta x Tony, Liza x Derik, Mimi x Chet aka romance and lots of drama talking Also we have some pranks being done by Chet But the whole scary action isn t until almost the last part And by then we are nearing the last few pages so it This book was meh I expected action, panic and frenzy, just like the blurb said there would be Sadly the

rushed, and ends for my feeling quite soon and unexpected Like we got the doll, now out and book is over We get some letters diary entries from our main characters, but well nothing is really happening.Overall Very disappointing It gets a 2 star since there have been a few scary moments, and I liked those Nice one sitter read I m giving this book 3.5 stars It was entertaining, but lacked a real scare factor.If you have read Laurie s most recent books Welcome to the Dark House and Return to the Dark House, you will be familiar with the large cast of characters and having each chapter

getting a internship at a reality tv studio, Derik jumps at the chance He just so happens to live in a town that houses a very grand and famous Mental Hospital One that will be demolished in a week Derik is determined to make his movie in that hospital.Derik gets a few kids from his school to participate in this film a couple of drama rats, a goth chick, a class clown and a brainiac Things get really weird when the enter the hospital They feel compelled to stay in that run down asylum and clues lead to a treasure hunt for a missing doll.The book was really easy to read and kept me engaged The only sour part was that there were no true scary moments I know, I know this is a YA novel so it has to be somewhat tame, but reallyno blood No ghostly apparitions The ending seemed tided up the book nicely, but could have been left out truthfully I mean, sometimes it s nice wondering what happened to the kids afterward Overall I m glad I read it and I will continue to read book written by this creative author this was such a good book I generally don t read YA, but I have an affinity for asylums and the one in this book the Danvers State Hospital is a rather famous one I mean look at how creepy and cool this place was While the characters were a bit cliche and the story could have been scarier, I m always going to enjoy a story with that setting And now I have to go watch Session

confused about the audience of this book The writing is juvenile and the plot reminded me of one of those Disney Channel movies they play around Halloween, but there were sexual references and some cussing So I don t know.Some reviewers describe this as The Blair Witch Project meets The Breakfast Club, and I can see where they are coming from Except in The Blair Witch Project I was ready to piss my pants and in The Breakfast Club I actually came to like the characters Not so much in this book.The reason I picked this book up was not because of the glowing enter sarcasm here reviews or interestingsarcasm premise It was because the Danvers State Hospital reminded me a lot of the abandoned mental hospital down my street, the Norwich State Hospital Ghost Hunters even did an episode on it Whether or not you think its a load of shit is up to you Anyway, I would have liked this book infinitely better if it was the littlest bit scary, or had a well developed cast Instead I got cliched, two dimensional characters and a load of cheese Read it if you must Instead of reading this book, turn on the sci fi channel and save yourself the trouble The blurb on the back of the book reminds me very much of a sci fi movie Death Tunnel was the name, I believe It s not that this is a bad book The ending is satisfying, the humor is aimed for teens so as a teen, I was amused , and the plot is enticing.However, it was very disappointing I kept waiting to see some sort of ghostly presence or feel a sense of danger for the cliche characters, but I didn t I Instead of reading this book, turn

a sense of danger for the cliche characters, but I didn t I tore through the parts of Derek, Mimi, and Chet, but the other characters I could care less about I feel as though they were added in simply to add them in.PROS X Quick Read.X Enticing beginning.X Spooky, paranormal element to it.X Satisfactory conclusion.CONS X No real sense of danger Creepy haunted asylum, should have plenty of opportunity for insanity, but everything turned out to be anticlimactic X Cliche characters Some of them felt useless.X Unrealistic setting The grafiti was the only thing that seemed realistic to me The building has been closed for tons and tons of years, but they still found all this equipment props etc lying around RECOMMENDED TO Bored library visitors Good book for a dark, rainy day with thunderstorms Glad I saved this one for my summer read.Overall, this isn t a book I d go out and buy I picked it up on a whim and got pretty much what I expected out of it I can think of 10 books I d rather recommend before this one, but it could easily entice a younger reader with its short size, creepy factor, and satisfactory ending
