In a new, groundbreaking format, the story is broken into two parts -- Ryan's text in the book, and Sarah's videos on a special website, with links and passwords given throughout the book.
What i thought: This is the perfect book for the YouTube watching reader. What a great concept, combining the two medias! Before the book was even released there were tons of websites and YouTube videos available to garner interest in the book. Sites with easter eggs and conspiracy theories can be found just by googling "Skeleton Creek". It is quite amazing, really, and funny in some ways.
So, is the book worth all the hype?
If you are looking for a scary, fast-paced, thrilling and entertaining novel that will most likely keep you up at night, yes, Skeleton Creek is most definately worth all of the hype. The unique, one-of-a-kind combination of good-old-fashioned book and new, high-tech vlogs will catch interest and please even the most avid readers.
Carman puts together all of the things the readers are looking for from a novel like this (friendship, ghosts, murder, mystery, etc) and somehow finds a way to help it flow in a way only the greatest of authors can accomplish.
Both the journal entries and vlogs clearly portray the characters, especially Ryan and Sarah. Each and every word had an underlying touch of fear enough to drive the readers insane, and Ryans mysterious accident will leave readers speachless.
A great combination of everything a reader looks for, Skeleton Creek is the perfect scary, nighttime novel.
thanks for the book Pat!
