    1. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) on said:

      I finished this book with an undecided feeling It was a good read, and kept my interest I m not sure that I enjoyed it that much A very interesting concept about creatures that take over the body of a person who is absolutely terrified on Sorry Night, which is the night of the Winter Solstice I heard about this book, and read some positive reviews, and decided to go for it I have no regrets that I did read it, but I have to say that there were things I could have liked better about this book The [...]

      YA Horror isn t in the same league with Adult Horror, so I m not going to try and compare apples to carpet cleaner There s no point.This was a really good teen horror story I wish I had been able to read it when I was younger, because I m sure it would have been one of my favorites.The breakdown of the story is that a girl and her best friend who happen to love all things scary , get their hands on an old journal that they believe to be someone s idea of a joke Maybe the first draft of a novel t [...]

      Normally I do not dig horror books.This is not totally true, I went through a brief John Saul phase in Jr High school I don t really dig gore and being scared out of my skin, but this book is very good.What s good about it is the main character is extremely brave She faces up to her fears to help save her brother She isn t some wussy girl who needs to be rescued You don t really get enough of that in books, I think.

    4. Kristi on said:

      I wouldn t classify myself as a fan of scary things I ve been afraid of the dark for as long as I can remember, yes, I am still afraid of the dark I do not like scary movies, I happened to watch It, the movie based on the novel of the same title by Steven King, when I was in elementary school, I don t think I slept for weeks, and I still haven t been able to watch the movie again So, when I grabbed a copy of the Devouring by Simon Holt and read the synopsis, I have to admit I was a little scared [...]

      If you don t learn how to be scared, you ll never really learn how to be brave What a fun little creepy story surprise I wasn t sure what I was getting in to I didn t read the book write up, I just check the cover and a few friend reviews and I was in I love reading horror so I was excited to give it a try Reggie is just your average girl she loves horror stories her little brother She s a fill in mom after their mom left She stumbles on a journal style story completely on accident The story des [...]

      OH MY GOOOOOOOSH,,,, I LOVE IT This book is amazing It got me hanging in every word and the description was so vivid that got me terrified with every nightmare.The vours are simply terrifying things that can get you if you get scary enough They take your body and send your soul to a terrible place.The worse part is that nobody knows that you are missing because your body is still there, but not your soul.I get goose bumps just thinking about it.The best scary book ever The Plot Bloody fantastic [...]

      Reggie is a horror fan she figures reading all those scary books and watching all those scary movies is a sort of preparation for the real thing, real fear But for Reggie, real fear is just arachnophobia for example, something real she can name So when she stumbles upon a mysterious journal detailing the horrors of certain demonic beings called Vours that take over human bodies, she dismisses it as a work of fiction But she can t deny the strange coincidence of her little brother Henry acting ve [...]

      3.5 stars It was fun to read but I would have like this much if I d been at least 10 years younger I don t have a lot to say about this book to be honest Some scenes in the book are really trying to gross you out and I wonder if anything will happen with Aaron.It was good enough to make me want to find out what s next.

    9. Lucy on said:

      Regina Halloway loves scary stories She reads them compulsively she even works in a horror book store Sometimes, she thinks she might be reading them to distract her from the truly scary things in her life like the fact that her mom ran out on them, and they haven t heard from her in over a year, or the fact that her father is and distant every day Or the fact that she is singlehandedly raising her little brother, Henry.But mostly, Reggie just reads horror because she loves it And when she fin [...]

      Comparable to books by R.L Stine and Stephen King A must have for horror fans School Library Journal A scary yarn spun at breakneck speed, perfect for those chilly winter nights Kirkus Irresistible The BulletinThese three quotes are exactly what I thought when I was reading this If those don t convince you then maybe I should give you some things that I liked in this masterpiece Killer mutated babies Scariest clown scene I ve ever read and I have read It by Stephen King This is like Nightmare on [...]

    11. Jackie on said:

      This is an extremely well written horror story that kept me cringing and reading late into the night It concerns Regina and her younger brother Henry, who has become possessed by a demon like entity called a Vour Adults are pretty much absent in the picture with one mysterious exception , so it s up to Reggie to figure out how to save her brother This is one creepy book, and it leaves plenty of leeway for this to turn into a series Yes, there s even a clown involved ugh I d liken it to John Saul [...]

      As far as covers go, The Devouring is pretty spectacular In fact, it s so good that I picked it up off the shelf in the store and decided I was going to buy it even before I looked at the blurb Apart from being visually stimulating, it manages to capture the real essence of the story without giving too much away.The blurb is pretty enticing as well Check this out Vours Evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the winter solstice.This isn t how the horro [...]

      Holt, Simon 2008 The Devouring Sorry Night Stop, Reggie Henry barked from beneath his quilt Don t read any Regina Halloway shut the book 5 Regina called Reggie by most of her friends and family loves to read horror Loves it So much so that she works at a used bookstore devoted to the genre But perhaps Reggie should have been a bit thoughtful as to what she was reading her younger and much gullible brother, Henry Then again, Regina hadn t any idea that her latest book, an old journal she found [...]

      Freaky, with a capital F You know those books you read that really play out in your head like a movie Well, this is one of them Holt does an excellent job really creating images from words I can t say I m a huge horror fan But, this is the first book I ve read on the subject so maybe my opinion is based on lack of exposure Great book, amazing yet terrifying story.Regina and her best friend Aaron are all about anything scary Regina is a high school freshman who works part time at a book store and [...]

      This book is instantly chilling I was sucked in int he deep abyss of Reggie s fears This tale is dark and deep, chilling me to the bone A gripping tale of overcoming your deepest darkest fears turning them in on themselves.Reggie starts off as a weaker character growing stronger and assertive through her love and devotion for her little brother She begins the novel with a theory that proves useful later she immerses herself in horror and fright through movies and literature, knowing that facing [...]

      Quick Overview With an entrancing plot but slightly underdeveloped characters, The Devouring was a fun read that left a lot of room for a great series This book was nothing like I expected it to be Looking back, I have no idea why I didn t pick this book up sooner It has been sitting on my shelves for probably about a year, and I just ran my hand across it without taking a second look every time If you are having the same problem, don t hesitate This book is worth the read The Devouring has such [...]

      When dark creeps in and eats the light, bury your fears on Sorry Night For in the winter s blackest hours, comes the feassting of the Vours No one can see it, the life they stole Your body s here, but not your soul Reggie has always been a fan of the gothic, the supernatural, the horrific One day, while working at the local bookstore, she comes across a book called The Devouring and, thinking it s just another horror novel, takes it home As Reggie and her best friend, Aaron, peruse the book, the [...]

      This is one of those books that I had heard so many awesome things about, bought at a Borders closing sale, and then left to sit on my bookshelf for months and months Why did I do that It was SO good The Devouring is a YA horror novel, but it s actually really creepy and well written I like the way Simon Holt s mind works From the very first page, I was sucked right into this story The School Library Journal compares Simon Holt to R.L Stine which I guess I can see, but The Devouring is much adv [...]

      I really can t say I am a fan of things scary I avoid scary movies like the plague To be quite honest, I always tell the hubs if we are ever caught in a scary movie type scenario, run with the kids, I m going to be the one who trips and falls and gets keeeled by the monster.With that said, The Devouring, was all that and a bag of chips for me I was scared, I was excited, I was at the edge of my seat, I was taken in from the start and spit out at the end and then I couldn t stop thinking about it [...]

      This book is very spooky I was unsure if I would like this book but after I got into it, I found myself intrigued with Reggy trying to save her little brother from these so called vours It is very adventurous and I can not wait to read the sequel I know what she goes through day to day taking care of her little brother and the fustrations she has I wonder if I would have the strength to overcome my fears as she did Anyone who loves books that are creepy and spooky this is the book for you.

      I LOVED IT This book grabbed and held my attention I raced through to the end and wasn t too disappointed I was hoping for a stronger ending, but not all books can end the way I want them to.The general premise is someone is inhabited by a Vour which is basically and alien like creature who takes over a human s body The original human ends up in a place of eternal terror where all his her biggest fears are realized and made into reality Well, the person you love ends up there, you have to find a [...]

      Oh My Jellybeans.This book was kind of amazing I m not sure what I was expecting all I knew was that I didn t think the Devouring would or could possibly be as good as it was At risk of getting gushy here something I try to avoid , the Devouring was unlike any other book I ve read for a while It combined a blend of good, strong, likeable characters with new, interesting premise with well executed storyline It s a paranormal book, yes, but there s nothing even remotely Twilight about it.It s a li [...]

      The first half of The Devouring was creepy in a good way Lots of slightly sinister, psychological stuff happening The second half, however, was icky Way too many gross out, gory events I was not intending to read a horror novel when I picked this up The Devouring is the story of Reggie, a teen girl who loves horror books and movies as does her best friend Aaron Reggie s mom left her family last year, and since then Reggie has had to take care of her little brother Henry a lot of the time One day [...]

      There were stories we used to tell each other when we were kids, for the mere purpose to scare the living crap out of the other person so he or she couldn t sleep at night.I remember trying to come up with these dreadful and creepy creatures,taking into account the other person s fear and taking advantage of it accordingly.The Devouring is one of those stories.Reggie is a 15 year old girl, who comes from a broken home her mother abandoned her and her 8 year old brother a year before the beginnin [...]
