5.0 out of 5 stars Love, Loss and Healing Supernatural Occurences! July 1 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of my all-time favorite books! Normally I'm not a fan of Christopher Pike but this particular book is incredibly insightful and full of heartbreaking and heartwarming stories.
Ilonka is a patient at a hospice for teens and 20-somethings, Rotterham Home, she has made friends with other patients Kevin, Sandra, Anya and Spence. Every night at exactly midnight the five of them gather in the library to tell stories. Basically, telling stories is the only fun they can have, in a hospice, everyone is waiting to die. Each one of the five friends has a different form of fatal cancer. Then, they discover that one of the members of their club is leaving the hospice to go back to normal life!
At the same time, Ilonka begins to have dreams of past lives, she remembers vividly life in Ancient Egypt, Asia and medieval Europe. The strange thing is that all the lives are connected to Kevin, a member of club Ilonka felt that she always knew from the first time she met him. Kevin's continuing story revolves around an angel and the misguided woman he loves, a story which is strangely parallel to the lives that Ilonka remembers.
Then, one of the members of the midnight club dies, but not before they tell Ilonka a true story which begins a mystery and the ultimate resolution to the sad stories that plague Ilonka's past.
Absolutely touching and revealing story. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under the age of 14 though, this books should really not be in a children's catagory. I recommend it to anyone 14 to 114! This is just such a fabulous, fantastic story! Christopher Pike really hit on a timeless story with this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars greatest hit Feb. 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another hit by Christopher Pike. the first time I read this book it gave me the creeps. The way how he described the pains and the sufferings caused me to feel them too. that was the creepy part. It's about kids who are sick and stuff like that. It is a must read (only if you have a strong stomach). you should also read the remember me trilogy, spellbound and chain letter. those are some other good books by CP.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lover of Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine Dec 22 2003
By Vivian
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best book I've read in a long time. This book makes you cry and think about your life, and be happy being healthy. This is Christopher Pikes best. He put in so much soul that I could feel myself there. Not a lot of books can make you cry and feel grateful at the same time. You should get this book if you want to feel like you are a character of the book, but you're not named as a character in the character's lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest Dec 5 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Deals with both uplifting and dark messages about death. Pike has successfully woven several short stories into one awesome novel...as a group of friends gather at midnight to tell many stories about love, revenge, anger, and acceptance. One night during a meeting, they make a pact. The first to die (yes, it sounds depressing--but it is actually very heart-felt) has to try to come back and tell the others about the afterlife. Ten years later, and still my favorite Pike book. My copy has ink throughout...highlights and notes. This is how I read all the Pike books--hoping to find some philosophical message that my mind either understands or will think about until it gets the point. Part of my entertainment in reading is that I just may have to learn something...and rethink my own beliefs. Pike is really good at doing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Inspiring Nov. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Im 20 years old, and have been a pike fan for many years. None of his books touched me like this one did. I too, am sick, and will die well before Im "supposed" to, so reading this book was touching on many diffrent levels.
All I can say is be sure and get it, it's a beautiful book and you will remember it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Love Story July 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rotterham Hospice in Washington State is a stately seaside mansion that once belonged to an oil tycoon. Rotterham Hospice is for teens suffering from terminal illnesses.
Ilonka, Anya, Kevin, Spencer and Sandra form The Midnight Club a club. They meet in the library and tell scary stories, as a way to briefly escape their tragic reality. During one meeting, the teens make a pact that the first one to die has to make contact with the others. Ilonka knew Kevin in a past life and her stories revolve around her memories of that life. She loves Kevin but he has a girlfriend named Kathy, a cheerleader in perfect health who visits him at the hospice. One day Ilonka tells Kathy the truth about Kevin's illness namely that he won't ever be coming home. It breaks them apart but Kevin isn't angry with her for doing it and discloses that he remembers those lives in her stories.
Anya dies and her personal belongings disappear like in a story Ilonka told about her past life in India, could it be a sign?
The Midnight Club is both tragic and romantic with an air of mystery and suspense. The ending is a real tearjerker!! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars It journals death April 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Honestly, this book has not much to do with the caption that graces it's back. While it does follow the lives of young adults dying at a hospice, the first dying member doesn't bring the remaining grief. While the caption may mislead, the book is still great. You will find yourself engrossed in the characters, they are wonderful. While the book isn't much horror, its still great, I suggest it to anyone, not just Young Adults.
