I never realized that The Body of Christopher Creed ad a seuel Christopher Creed doesn t particularly stand out in my mind but I love Streams of Babel and seuel so I ll give this a shot This seuel certainly wasn t necessary And after I began reading about Mike I wasn t convinced that this book would go anywhere and it didn t I m glad that I skipped the middle 250 pages of this unnecessarily long book to FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO Christopher Creed I wasn t particularly surprised at the twist that Mike is Chris and I Splinter have no problem giving it away now because everyone should be satisfied with the first book and ignore this seuel I really liked The Body of Christopher Creed when I first read it and I really didn t care for this one I m not sure if it s a weaker book or I m just a different reader to beonest It might be the difference between being a Breed of Innocence (The Breed Chronicles high school reader and an adult reader but I was way less interested in the protagonist andad some real issues with the depiction of women The twist at the end though was satisfying and I didn t see it coming until right before it The Princes Mistress happened I loved the first book The Body of Christopher Creed naturally I was surprised as well as ecstatic when I found out Plum Ucci was writing a fallow up novel I couldn t find the book so I got it on audible and put it on my ipod Loved it In the beginning Iad a lot of uestions about why she would choose to write about a character not in the original book but by the end it all made sense If you liked the first one I strongly suggest you read the second I remembered absolutely loving The Body of Christopher Creed and not being able to put it down When I found Following Christopher Creed I was beyond excited I started by re reading The Body of Christopher Creed this morning and read Following Christopher Creed right after Unfortunately I was disappointed with the latter To me Following Christopher Creed was drawn out up until around the last 20 pages or so Only then did I develop any sort of appreciation for Immortal Jellyfish how the novelad been crafted an This book is a thrilling adventure following Mike Mavic a visually challenged college newspaper reporter as California he goes into the search 4 years after the disappearance of Christopher Creed in Steepleton New Jersey I likedow they kept it in Mike s perspective throughout the book And Afgantsy how the author created an event to bring the original characters back into play I loved that the book would make youave to go back and read over it to make sure you were not just thinking they Distant Early Warning (Star Trek (Star Trek: S.C.E., had said something and you read over it And finally I loveow the author made the atmosphere in the book very gloomy and mysterious even the cover Somnium has a mysterious gloom upon it that makes you just want to find out whatides inside it I remember reading The Body of Christopher Creed in The Cronos Complex I high school and LOVING it because it was just so creepy It was a well done psychological thriller And it was my first psychological thriller that is so automatically itas a soft spot in my eart When I first eard of Following Christopher Creed I was a bit put off The Body of Christopher Creed was so amazing that I feel that it didn t need a seuel And unfortunately I was right Following Christopher Creed never lives up to the brilliance that is its predecessorFollowing Christopher Creed was most of the time a bloated boring book Sure some interesting things Maid of Dishonor (The Wedding Season, happenedere and there but reading most of the book was tedious I also found the characters in The Body of Christopher Creed developed and therefore intriguing While I did like Mike and RayAnn I never got a clear reading of them particularly when it comes to Mike Now maybe this was the author s intention but it made me feel very disconnected to Mike Revisiting with the characters of the previous novel was pretty cool but that only lasted for a few chaptersAnother thing I didn t understand was why the author built up this si.

De plot at the beginning with Steepleton The Site Book having bad karma yet never elaborated on it I thought that should ve been the focus Following Christopher Creed What makes Steepleton tick Why is it that while most towns see change Steepleton remains the same and never evolves She brings up these uestions but answers are never forthcoming Normally the lack of answers doesn t really tend to bother me but I guess I was latching on to the Steepleton theory because it was really the only thing in Following Christopher Creed that intrigued me I found the rest mehSo two stars for the ending which I really did NOT see coming but really shouldave I think I m off my game and for some moments of interest But really I found Following Christopher Creed to be an unnecessary seuel that never reaches the awesomeness that was The Body of Christopher Creed let alone surpasses it If you re a reader like me you probably finished The Body of Christopher Creed feeling like it finished well Mysteries remained but the story was over as far as we were concerned If you re like me you were probably at least a little surprised to see Following Christopher Creed on the shelf a seuel to the story that didn t seem to need a seuelAnd if you re a reader like me you re intrigued anyway Following Christopher Creed picks up four years after the events of Christopher Creed s still unsolved disappearance with Mike Mavic Mike is a The Devils Possession hopeful college reporter investigating a recently found dead body thinking it might be that of the long lost teen Mike is also nearly blind and dealing with some pretty severe trauma ofis own With the Betraying Beauty (Vegas Titans, help ofis girlfriend Vrolok he meditates and struggles throughis many boundaries using the power of positive thinking and concentrationIf you re a reader like me 僕の愛を知れ! [Boku no Ai o Shire!] here s where you ll start to wonderow some of this is relevant Mike s story sometimes veers off into long discussions about uantum thought and bad freuency and while many familiar characters appear in these pages they seem sidelined somehow It ends up being important to the ending and I think to the point of the story but even so the book drags some in the middle due largely to the perspective of its narrator seeing in the shadows and uestioning everything To be The Boy Who Would Not Say His Name honest it was a struggle to get through some of thisBut if you re a reader like me you ll see a glimmer of potential there in those shadows And I mappy to say that in this case the potential pans out into a pitch perfect ending that made this reader want to read it all over again to see Job-Hunting for the So-Called Handicapped how that trick was pulled off I really did go back to read a few key passages to see what I missedow I didn t see it But the truth is simple I didn t see it because Carol Plum Ucci didn t want me to Following Christopher Creed may look like an unnecessary seuel there on the shelf or it may read at times like an irrelevant side trip in the story of Christopher Creed Trust me on this it s neither Perhaps you ll see the ending coming I didn t and for a reader like me an ending that can surprise and delight and satisfy as this one did makes it all worth it It s been five years since Christopher Creed disappeared four since Torey Adams launched The Hunger Within his website ChrisCreedcom in an attempt to make sense of the the wayis classmate vanished into thin air Five years and not a single solitary trace of Chris Creed Between Two Skies has ever been found Then Torey posts a new message onis website a body Witch-Hunting in Seventeenth-Century New England has been discovered in the woods outside of SteepletonMike Mavic a legally blind college reporter who sees than mostas been a Nude Girls Photography Presents Ass Pussy From Behind - Compilation Vol. 5 huge fan of ChrisCreedcom from the beginning Chris s story told with both sympathy andonesty by Adams is not so very different from The Dolce Diet his own right down to the domineering and obsessively controlling mother Whene reads Torey s latest post Mike knows e as to get to Steepleton Here is Spunk his chance to uncover a story that could well and truly launchis career as a journali.
