WOW. Just Wow. I’m in SHOCK. I have GOOSEBUMPS. There are SHIVERS traveling down my spine. This was just plain CREEPY. And HOLLY starts with S and ends it HIT!!! O.O
This is the best creepiest, mysterious and creepy – yes I said creepy twice – Book I’ve ever read in my LIFE! – it’s the first book I read in its genre… who cares! – Now I’ll stop gushing and begin my review.
When I read the summary of Choker I thought I already knew how things were going to end up. Once I actually started reading, I assumed I was in for a very predictable ride, still, I was very interested in seeing how Elizabeth Woods – author of Choker – unraveled the whole situation.
This is how it works :
Warning: Fake spoilers ahead.
First Cara is bullied in her school and they call her Choker because she once choked in the cafeteria. Then her Best Fried Zoe comes along and things start getting weird. Then things get more weird. Cara starts acting like Zoe. Then Cara starts to look like Zoe. And then BAM, she is Zoe. And Cara. And she becomes Dr. Jekill and Mrs. Zoe. In other words: Hulk.
I’m Kidding xDD
Well, half kidding, because when Zoe arrives things do start getting weird, and you just can’t help but think, I know what’s gonna happen, I sooo know! And just when you think you have every single detail sort out, that you know everyone’s cards and the roles their playing and you are just waiting for the next chapter to say what you already know when BAM! No, it is not Dr. Jekill and Mrs. Zoe, but something worse….
There are two options here. Option 1: I am the most naïve person in this planet and completely dumb for not seeing what was coming. Or Option 2: This book was as great as I am saying.
And now I swear to say the truth and nothing but the truth. (or something like that, I’m not so sure how that line goes)
If you are looking for a good book, with a creepy storyline, that takes some wide turns, and sometimes has way to much creepiness, then Choker is for you.
