About this deal
Los personajes son muy fuertes, destacando sobre los demás las dos protas por excelencia, nuestras particulares heroínas que harán todo lo posible por salvar su amistad, ¿lo lograrán? He's also the jerk behind the Stoker award-winning Paperbacks from Hell, a history of the 70's and 80's horror paperback boom, which contains more information about Nazi leprechauns, killer babies, and evil cats than you probably need.
I'm not really sure why anyone would rate this book anything lower than five stars, unless of course, they didn't understand the premise of the book. It has plenty of light hearted moments of two childhood friends who grew up together and graduated in 1989.Set during the satanic panic of the 1980s, My Best Friend's Exorcism is the story of the friendship between two girls and the possessing demon that drove a wedge between them.
There isn't much in terms of horror - some parts are squeamish and unsettling, but it's not going to keep you up at night. Their friend Glee has a crush on Father Morgan, and almost throws herself off the school roof when he doesn’t acknowledge her feelings. I don’t use Spotify but was glad to see someone made this exact same playlist on Apple Music so I listened to each song right before starting that specific chapter and it was so awesome. I’ll admit that I first picked up Grady Hendrix’ 2016 novel My Best Friend’s Exorcism because of the title and the cover art, but his personable writing and fresh ideas kept me reading until the end.i love the cover of the paperback, but unfortunately it does not include all the yearbook signatures of the hardcover, of which i particularly like abby’s, whose P.

During "slave day," people are bought by other students and have to follow their "master" around and do whatever is commanded of them. The 80s song title chapter headings were perfection and fitted the narrative of the chapters perfectly. I didn't care about Gretchen and Abby's friendship, despite the author spending the first 50 pages of the book building the foundation of their relationship.
Pasan cosas claro, pero muy leves has However, I don't think this book will alienate any of the younger generation of readers because 80s pop culture is super celebrated and people who can't relate on a personal level, will at least get it on the same level that they get what's going on in Stranger Things, which is wildly popular for all ages, you know? Honestly the only reason I finished it was because it’s a quick read and I could at least get the satisfaction of finishing a book out of it.
