    Strange Brew Reviews

    Alright, I'm a sucker for horror, and I'm an even bigger sucker for the 80s, so when I came across this book at my local library, I knew I had to read it. The book is far from perfect, I've watched exorcism movies that are more realistic than this story. Like I'm to believe that the girls living thousands of miles apart is going to commit car theft to see the other. Anyway, the start of the book confused me, it almost made it seem that Abby and Gretchen were no longer speaking, but spoiler alert, they remain life long friends, so that doesn't make much sense to me. The story seemed slow to get started, and then just kind of slapped you that the story had developed so quickly and it was over. Speaking of developing, none of the characters developed in any way, they were all kind of one dimensional. Even adult Abby and Gretchen were boring and had no personality. I had to look away during two parts of the story, one involved the dog, the other was very gross and I skipped ahead so I didn't have to read the part. Including the 80s playlist and songs in the book was a good choice, but I wish I understood more about the possession and why it happened. We can suspect an old building all we want but we don't know the story behind it, or what was done there. We're kind of blind as to why this happened. The book also ended very suddenly and unsatisfying. Kind of like this review. All in all, its an okay book. One I would consider reading again if I were bored. But I would have to be bored with no other book contenders.

    A seriously fun and campy horror romp. Well worth the read!

    I heart the 80s

    This book captured my teens, the '80s, and the complexities of female friendship so perfectly. I didn't expect to love it as much as I ended up doing, but Grady Hendrix is a masterful storyteller and understands what makes horror work.
