Like my title, people say this book drags on, at least it has a purpose. Sure, some of the parts in this book are insignifigant, but at least it's fun to read. Harry Potter 5 dragged on and had no purpose. One of the chapters were entirely about homework at Hogwarts, but here, it would usually be about Duddits and, in the end, it actually had an impact at the end of the story.
I simply love this novel and I'm going to recommend it to everyone I know. And, I say, give it a shot. This book is simply astounding.
All is well until a stranger enters their cabin claiming that he has been lost in the woods for days. Eventually, the stranger becomes extremely ill and dies having bled to death in the bathroom. To Beaver and Jonesy's surprise, they discover a weasel -like creature emerging from the back of the dead stranger.
After much struggle, Jonesy manages to escape from the creature alive while Beaver is killed by it. Jonesy is then shocked to see another mysterious creature that identifies himself as Mr. Gray. At this point, Mr. Gray transforms himself into red dust which Jonesy inhales. By doing so, Mr. Gray is able to take control of Jonesy's body in which he is able to carry out his mission.
Meanwhile, Commander Kurtz and his team are set up in the woods and have been destroying the unidentified creatures that have crashed on earth, unaware that one has survived.
It is now up to Jonesy, Henry, and Pete to stop Mr. Gray from achieving his goal- destroying all of humanity. The friends discover that survival is hidden in their past and in the dreamcatcher, which has come to represent their bond of friendship.
While I enjoyed this book very much, there were parts where it got confusing or when one event in the book carried on for too long. For example, the chase between Jonesy/ Mr. Gray, Henry, and Kurtz, lasted more than six chapters.Read more ›
