The Taking of Annie Thorne

Summary Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ C.J. Tudor The Taking of Annie Thorne Download × 8 C.J. Tudor ☆ 8 Read The new spine tingling sinister thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Chalk ManOne night Annie went missing Disappeared from her own bed There were searches appeals E. I don t believe in ghosts My nan was fond of telling me It s not the dead you need to be scared of love It s the living She was almost right But I do believe you can still feel the echoes of bad thingsNo one is as disappointed as I am that I m having to write that review I was sure this would be the easiest 5 stars given in 2018 or 2019 based on publication but unfortunately there were too many issues I couldn t glance over Between the unnecessary racism and prejudice of people on the spectrum that was added for character development to the plot twist that anyone who has read a certain Stephen King book will find unnervingly familiar it s safe to say this one just wasn t for me I feel another round of editing to take away some of the choppy presentation might improve the overall uality as well If you re wanting to go into this one blind I would recommend you stop reading this review right here as I ll be discussing below in greater detail some of the things that worked and didn t work for me If newspapers are the place where facts become stories the Internet is the place where stories become conspiracy theoriesI ll be the first to admit that I m in the minority of early reviewers when it comes to my opinion on this novel and I highly recommend you take that with a grain of salt and give this one a try to decide for yourself how YOU feel That said I had to be honest and true to how certain aspects of this book made me feel and those are included below We ll start with our protagonist Joe Thorne He s presented as an underdog from the very beginning even though once he hits his teenage years he joins a crowd of bullies and participates in the very behavior that he initially was plagued by I don t have a problem with this I think it s important for stories to portray the psychological effects of bullying and how it can alter a person s moral dna I also understand the need for a flawed protagonist but my personal taste is less is when it comes to this I don t need an anti hero or a villain who twirls his mustache while spewing maniacally MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA that gives me no sense of conflict regarding who they are and what makes them tick I think Joe s make up was a bit over the top for me instead of choosing a few unsavory characteristics to portray his flaws we get numerous accounts of bigotry and prejudice in the form of racism ablism homophobia etc These portions didn t further the narrative IMO I grew irritable and distracted at the constant mentions of Little Miss Scary the autistic bartender whom our protagonist felt relieved when she was substituted for the old bald white fat guy I could go on and on about this and frankly these instances will be a matter of the opinion of the reader and how they react to them but as a stated above it was an unnecessary distraction for me when my sister was eight years old she disappeared At the time I thought it was the worst thing in the world that could ever happen And then she came backWhich brings us to the big plot twist My problem isn t with the insertion of the supernatural into what is being billed as a traditional mysterythriller although I know this will be a dealbreaker for some readers My issue is that I ve read this story before That s right while both of Tudor s novels tend to read like Stephen King fan fiction her first novel seemed to be a mash up of flattering references and inspiration from multiple novels he s published over the years Friends if you ve read Pet Semetary before you ve read The Hiding Place I can t tell you how disappointing it was to make it to the 75% mark and realize where this was going With the buzz surrounding the re make of PS in film form I can see why the author was inspired to write this and it could be the fact that I just read PS earlier this year and it was too close to reading this one but I felt deflated once I reached the point of no return Tudor is an exuisite storyteller and I highly respect the way that she blends horror and thriller together for an elevated reading experience but I think this one felt closer to ripoff than beloved fan fiction While I wasn t a fan of this one I still wish the author all the success in the world and will be anxiously awaiting her next novel I received a review copy via the publisher

You can still feel the echoes of bad things They imprint on the fabric of our reality like a footprint in concrete Whatever made the impression is long gone but you can never erase the mark it left Joe Thorne finds himself pulled back to his childhood hometown A place filled with tragedy regret and mystery He walked away from Arnhill years ago vowing never to look back With his life in shambles Joe finds himself back at the place where it all started to go wrong Summoned by an anonymous email that he couldn t ignore Joe goes home to finally get answers to the mystery that has plagued his life what really happened to Annie I know what happened to your sister It s happening again Tudor has a brilliant mind for bringing small town life and its characters to life I devoured the creepy backstory of this little town A tiny dot on a map that outsiders may never have heard from Yet those who dwell there are shrouded in the town s eerie unexplained mystical mystery Every town village and city has a history There s the official history The bone dry version collated in textbooks and census reports related verbatim in the classroom Then there s the history that is passed down through generations The secret history It s been said this book has an early Stephen King vibe and it is definitely true From the moment you open the book you are pulled in by a horrific opening scene and Tudor never loosens her grip on you The entire story has that creepy check under your bed look behind your shower curtain and peer under the toilet lid vibe I LOVED it I could not stop turning the pages I was drawn in by Joe s flawed but definitely likable character This was a man marked by his past living with demons and struggling daily I enjoyed his witty inner dialogue I felt the tension and suspense build as he worked to uncover the truth And the truth he was searching for the ending left me agape for a momentI must read The Chalk Man which has been on my TBR pile for too long I have no doubt that I have been firmly made a fan of Tudor s writing Bring on the creepy and horrific I excitedly welcome it I ll simply be sure to read all her books with the lights on Thank you to CJ Tudor Crown Publishing and NetGalley for an arc of this book in exchange for my honest review

    Review The Taking of Annie Thorne The Taking of Annie Thorne (PDF) Summary Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ C.J. Tudor The past isn’t real It is simply a story we tell ourselves And sometimes we lie The result of my first foray into CJ Tudor’s world a story teetering on the precipice of being something truly great One little nudge—or in this case in regards to the why—would have sent this novel toppling end over end into favorite territoryIf I’m being completely candid had I known there was a supernatural aspect to the storyline I never would have
