ANOTHER 5 STAR REVIEW for THE BOOGEDYMAN! The Boogedyman
I came across the opportunity to read and review The Boogedyman by A.P. Miller from a group in Facebook. I was told that this book is in several schools and libraries and I was grateful my review was wanted after offering it.
This book held my attention from page one and it was packed full of thrills, terror, and spine tingling suspense for a short read. I was a little disappointed when it ended. I do have to confess but I thought I had it figured out from Chapter One and I am very seldom wrong because I have a talent in predicting the ending to movies and books with little knowledge of them, usually just from the first chapter in a book to the first 30 mins of a movie. So, I was very pleased when I discovered I was in fact wrong about the ending.
This book although in schools, I don't think it would be for small children. The author showed brilliance in describing the inside of the mind of his character when allowed to be altered by medications. The wonderful imagination of A.P. Miller set the stage for the reader to be pulled into the story therefore feeling the sheer terror of madness. I was able to feel what characters were feeling and going through, and sometimes it was a bit frightening. I loved it!!!
I highly recommend this book and give it five stars *****
