My review on "The body of Christopher Creed".
The way the book struck me was totally fascinating, i mean, its not the greatest book i've ever read, but it certainly gave me a "no drop" feeling for the story. I would like to say all of the clues i know for a fact all of you must be wondering. Victor Adams, (one of the commentors on Tore'ys website, is actually suppossed to be Christopher Creed. Because at his last line and his other comments of "all-so-knowing" he says, "and thank you for mentioning your name". i mean, who but christopher, the one who mentioned all of the names who he wanted to be, not say to one of the persons who ACTUALLY put his "perfect life: to a stall to find a "nobody" such as Christopher Creed? Ask, your self, WHY? So from read information, that must be t he victim of unattention and a holdback =of a life a teenager should be living. Victor. Victor. Thats Christopher. Because of his love for the internet that he saw that, and for the information that he said. Because he said he is a STARTER pshycoligist, and he knows THIS much? Fascinating isnt it how much a simple book can release this much of mystery and relation to everybodies experience with "nobodies". This book made me think how even "nobodies" have lives, and how not to see their reputation, but the reputation of who they really are, not who people express themselves towards them. This is my review. I would like to thank Carol Plum-Ucci for writing this wonderful book, and if she is reading this, please make more like this. Thank you, Xavier Masalihit

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!
