Pike, Christopher. (1992). Monster. New York: Pocket Books.
Monster by Christopher Pike is actually incredibly well-written—a compelling story with characters that prove to be much more than t he cardboard cutouts they seem at first. Really, it’s a damn shame that such a great book was published with such an uninspired title. The amount of mythos packed into this book is fascinating, and to label such a package with such a dime-a-dozen appellation would be like taking a sprawling TV series about angels and demons and the end of the world and just calling it Supernatural. I mean, who does that?
