    A Halloween treat

    18 months ago I discovered a book called Murderous Little Darlings, by John Hessessy. Being a fan of vampires, I thought I would give it a read. I can honestly say that since reading that book I am hooked on Hennessy's books. He sure knows how to write horror and I can't get enough of his work. When I saw advertisements for his new book, The Halloweeners, I didn't hesitate to dive right into the book and as always, I was not dissappointed. The Halloweeners, is cleverly written. Although this book is aimed at a younger audience than Mr Hennessy's other books, it's also a truely great read for adults. He cleverly leaves a little inuendo in there, which younger readers would take innocently but would give adult readers a little chuckle. I like the subtle way the author intertwines his other books with mentions of places or characters from his other books, but don't worry, it's not done in a way that looses the reader if they haven't read his other books.If you have read his books, though, you'll love the little reminders of his previous books. Another thing I like about this book is its open-mindedness. Eg "They'd come to realise that there were a lot of boys and girls out there, and it wouldn't do just to focus on one." Unfortuanetly a lot of books and movies imply that girls should like boys, and boys should like girls. In this book that is aimed at teenagers, a positive message is sent out. It doesn't matter if girls like girls or boys like boys. As I was reading through this book, I was tottally gripped by it and didn't know what to expect. Was Kirsty really a witch? Would Toby turn into a zombie or craig turn into a vampire? And just what was Bayswater Bill? A demon? A murderer? An innocent victim tormented by the imaginations of scred kids? A story the Halloweeners made up to scare the new guy in the group? The ending was very surprising and very awesome. This book certainly was a Halloween treat.
