My review on "The body of Christopher Creed".
|Submitted by Anita |
The Body of Christopher Creed is a complete rip off of Stephan King's, Diffrent Seasons (the Body). Everything is practically the same except Torey Adams and the rest accomplish nothing except almost going crazy. While in the Body the young boys manage to find the body of the missing classmate. Also one of the young boys manages to become an author while Torey Adams is stuck at bording school, trying to cope with Christopher still missing. Overall, the book surprised me by not accomplishing anything, but it was still a fun read.

This book is probably one of the best, if not the best, that I have read in a few years. I can personally identify with Ucci's Torey Adams, and the fact that he has come to the realization that things are never as black and white as we make them, and in order to see past that, we have to be willing to look through the glossy surface we sometimes paste over complicated or uncomfortable truths. The element of mystery was a nice addition to the novel, but what held me was Torey's psychological transformation, his questioning what it perceived to be truth. In a sometimes very disconcerting way, Ucci brought forth the idea that people will indeed cling to false truths to help them survive. This story gave me shivers to the depths of my soul until the last page1 I loved it!
