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.)

Monster Recap Part One: Chpt 1 - 4

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.
