Monster Recap Part Four: Chpt 13 - 15, Epilogue

Posted by BookRatReads at 7:24 AM 0 comments

Angela has another weird ass dream.

(I actually had to read bits of it a few times to finally understand what was going on.)

She dreams of the history of the KAtuu and when their world ends. Men from the third planet (earth) came in their ship and started to build something. They guarded it at all times.

We also learn a bit about the KAtuu.

“ That's what brought on the victim's hunger. The parasite had to be fed, or else it would feed on its host. It hungered for the living iron in the dying blood – to bring about the polarity, the magnetism, that led to union with the mind of the world.”

Angela goes to visit Professor Alan Spark. He tells her that he was very against the high school being built next to the water and having its drinking water come from there, but they didn't listen to him. He was concerned basically with the quality of the water since it has been subjected to a magnetic field all the time. In his experiments he saw that plants that were watered with that water either died or did not do to well. He also points out that Point Lake is different from other lakes in the area because there is nothing in it, no fish, plant life, worms, except...

Monster Recap Part Two: Chpt 5 - 8

(Oh shit she is one of them now.)

The next morning Kevin wakes her up. Her dog, Plastic, is staring at the water from the balcony again.

( I think the dog must know or sense something is not right with the lake. Also that is one weird ass name for a dog. I'm not sure if there ever was an explanation for the name? I can't remember)

Angela is super crazy starving when she goes downstairs to eat. She also sees a note from her grandfather that he will be away for a few days.

(I'm guessing shit is going down soon since he is gone for a few days.)

TITLE: Monster
AUTHOR: Christopher Pike
GENRE: YA Horror

She said she killed them because they were monsters. Mary Carlson walked into the party with a loaded shotgun. In the blink of an eye she blew two people away. She wanted to kill more, but was stopped by her best friend, Angela Warner, and the police.

The next day, when Angela visits Mary at jail she asks why she did it. Mary responds, “Because they were no longer human.” Angela thinks she's crazy. At first.

Until she probes deeper into Mary's claims and discovers a horror so unimaginable that she thinks she is going crazy. She even gets to the point where she wonders if she should have let Mary keep on killing. While there was still time to stop the thing from spreading. The very old thing. The hungry thing.

COVER OPINION: I actually really love this cover. At first glance everything seems normal and then you notice the football players eyes and the red moon behind him. Very creepy.

Gimme A Kiss Recap Part Four: Chpt 9 - 12

Back in the Police station Fisher questions Alice on how Kirk died. Alice says it must have been the bends since he was diving down far and surfacing to quickly. The lifeguard that came onto the boat said he thought that was very unlikely but Alice didn't think he knew what he was talking about. The strange thing is that Kirk who has lived beside the Ocean his whole life was a really good swimmer so for him to drown is sort of odd. Alice seems appalled almost when Fisher asks her if she shared her air with him at all. She was all like “why would I do that?” Alice was also the only one in the water with scuba gear on.

Jane goes to work and Dr. Palmer is nice enough to let her work in the back today. He knows what happened at school since some student had come in early that day and gave him the scoop. (He pretty much just doesn't want her to tarnish his reputation.) While she is back there she makes a list of ways to get back at Patty and Kirk.

“ 1. Kill P. And K.
2. Cripple K.
3. Disfigure P.
4. Infect P. And K. with an incurable disease.
5. Disgrace P. And K.” 
(Holy shit Jane remind me never to cross you!!)

CHAPTER ONE: Friday Morning:

Jane is writing in her 'diary' even though it is just in a regular notebook. The unique thing about this diary is that it's entries are fantasy and very loosely based on actual events in her life. She is up early having seen her parents off camping for the weekend. Saturday she would be joining 60 of her classmates on a boat, rented and captained by Alice's father, for a day of adventures.

Jane was waiting for her friends Sharon and Alice to come pick her up from school. Jane has her own car but it is old and junky and doesn't start reliably so she has been hitching rides with them. So there she was sitting at her desk rereading her last entry about the first “date” she had with Kirk. The next entry she had planned was to talk about the first time they had sex. (Which of course didn't really happen. Seriously right here Jane bad idea! Don't write down anything you don't want others to see!).
