    I see the reviews of this one are pretty low, and I do agree with the fact that there are a ton of characters, but if you listen to the audiobook like I did you may get more enjoyment out of this. Since the audiobook has a full cast of voice actors, it is easier to tell them apart. Also, it is complete with sound effects and a rock soundtrack. While the story and audiobook are not good by any means, damnit, I think this is a forgotten document of its time.

While the story and audiobook are not good by any means, damnit, I think this is a forgotten document of its time. The voice acting is bad, the story is trashy, and there are plenty of murderers... just like a fun '80s slasher. I honestly had so much fun with this and was grinning like an excited child the whole time. No, this isn't great literature. But it is a great experience for a horror fan like me. Out of enjoyment alone, I have to give this five stars.

    Oh Em Gee this book scared me when I was a kid. The British title for this is The Cemetery (US title: The Ripper) and I first read it when my Papa bought me a copy when I was 9 or 10, and sleeping alone on the top floor of my father's gothic Hampstead almost-mansion, right next to - you guessed it, a cemetery. Yeah, nightmare central. I've never been so glad for my bratty baby sisters to wake me up at 4am. This time around, it's still a pretty horrific read. I've read it enough times by now, and r Oh Em Gee this book scared me when I was a kid. The British title for this is The Cemetery (US title: The Ripper) and I first read it when my Papa bought me a copy when I was 9 or 10, and sleeping alone on the top floor of my father's gothic Hampstead almost-mansion, right next to - you guessed it, a cemetery. Yeah, nightmare central. I've never been so glad for my bratty baby sisters to wake me up at 4am. This time around, it's still a pretty horrific read. I've read it enough times by now, and remember it well enough, that it doesn't shock me the way it did. Yet it is still quite chilling. On Halloween, a bunch of friends - well, sort of friends - have a private party on the Point (a sort of rock promontory thing) right next to an ancient cemetery. They get the bright idea to have a séance, but then move onto hide and seek - during which one of them is brutally murdered. They don't know whether to suspect each other, or some crazy stranger who might have been lurking around, or if it's something more sinister. Then a second one of them is murdered, and a third, and a house is set on fire. And Charity - the lead character, as much as there IS a lead in this book - has to find out what's happening and how to stop it. As Point Horrors go, this one is a bit bizarre. For starters, there isn't one single protagonist who the action focuses on - we start with eleven characters, who all get their own sections where we see the action filtered through their eyes and thoughts. This makes for a lot of info-dumping, but as I've mentioned before, I LIKE an info dump - I find it more interesting than conversation a lot of the time. It also make for shallow characters - eleven leads all wanting page time in a short book means that nobody gets explored in depth. Yet, in this particular book, I think having shallow characters works. It keeps the focus on the action and fear. Don't get me wrong, some of them are very likeable. (And others are loathsome - which, to me, is always better than boring.) These are not squeaky-clean teenagers. They drink and smoke, and allusions are made to sex - even promiscuous sex - although nothing is stated outright. I kind of like this - it makes a nice change, keeps things fresh. The book itself is not squeaky-clean either: the violence is nasty and often graphic. All in all it's a much darker book than most Point Horrors. There are little details that I like about the book, things that you wouldn't miss if they were absent, but having them present provides that little extra zing. For example, the names really suit their characters. Cyndi Moray - sleek and dangerous, like the eel. Lara Stepford - classically perfect, at least on the surface. Jane Wales - plain Jane, sweet and old-fashioned. Dorian Moray - elegant and handsome and refined, hiding the nastiness underneath. I suppose someone who chooses a nom de plume like D.E. Athkins (Death Kins) knows the importance of names. Athkins' writing style is often cynical, sometimes humorous, and brilliant at capturing the essence of the character whose thoughts we're hearing. Take this passage from Cyndi's brain: Her father, who was inexplicably home tonight, would probably keep the guys trapped in the library, pouring out drinks, and weird fatherly charm. And Wills, who was Lara's current entertainment for, oh, the next ten minutes, would drink his, making that careful, idle, polite, endless conversation that boys with names like William Lawrence Howell were so good at making. Dade, on the other hand, who was all lies and laughter, would say no, thank you, he was driving. But the truth was, he just liked saying no. He liked being in control. Dade was very big on control. I personally find this style of writing to be excellently entertaining, while my friend finds it frivolous and overblown. I guess you need to make up your own minds. Verdict: As scattered as my review of it - but it makes it work. Pretty darn scary.

She also seems to be a bit more honest about what teens get up to (drinking alcohol, getting high, having sex etc.). So yeah, she's more of a realist and for that reason her stories are more believable. This was certainly a horror story, more so than other Point books are (where there's just a psycho out and about causing mischief). Unlike some of the more mild Point books as well, this one featured death. A fair bit of death. One thing that I noticed early on was that there were a LOT of characters. As the story went on, I got used to it and got to know who everyone was - but those first few scenes being introduced to ten main characters within 16 pages were rather confusing and maybe a tiny bit exhausting. ;) But then he had to have all that fodder so he could kill some off, right? ;) I don't really remember reading this book when I was younger, so I'm not sure I ever did. Better late than never. On that note, here my notes taken down during the read: (view spoiler)[p.5 - Georgina - "she liked being high" 😬 Cyndi's "fast mouth" ; and "trendy Cyndi" Georgina's short, spiked black hair Liz Taylor on her walls. Her dad saying what about "stars your own age... Like Madonna" p.6 - Foy Villanova - what sort of name is that?!?! p.9 - Rick has childhood issues because of his dad being a funeral director p.11 - Wills is a creep. Jack the Ripper is a man after his own heart? p.13 - Jones - "trendy Cyndi" p.14 - Jones is one emo mf. Also, if he's the new kid in town how does he know trendy Cyndi? p.16 - Char is wearing a black lurex body suit with a short sequined tunic over it. Wow! pp.1-16 - Cyndi, Lara, Dade, Georgina, Foy, Jane, Rick, Wills, Jones, Charity. That's a lotta characters to introduce in a row p.34 - all these characters are confusing. Also, who are the Bobbsey twins? p.43 - Dorian's story about the fat "bogus" vampire p.50 - At present I'm wondering if Jones came from a town where the "Ripper" was before, and is here as he knows the Ripper is here now. And Jones is trying to stop it. p.51-52 - this one does YA dialogue pretty well, unlike some. "my man" and so on. p.54-55 - creeptastic! Wills is gawwwwn p.65 - "... Like some uncut drug..." p.74 - Georgie is mean to the cat. What a bitch! p.77 - newspapers not yet converted to film There are regular jokes about murder, eg Monday was going to be murder; homework is murder etc p.84 - Georgina - "rotten party" p.87 - "bogus, Dorian." And "it's mega-ditz idea, Georgie." p.94 - whoooah, he just left her! Creepy and supernatural scenes. Also, the two nastiest are now dead. p.114 - Georgie - is she a zombie or a ghost? "Phooey on Foy." p.120 - Char fishing coins out of her pocket to make a phone call... At the phone booth. p.121 - Georgie smells dead. Eek Who are all those characters? Clarence, Captain, Charon. Jack I know. p.122 - Dorian is gawwwwwn. Who's next? p.126 - Jane calling crowd members "pigs", whereas I would have called them "fucking assholes" 🤔 p.139 - what are the keystone cops? p.140 - Jones and Dade... Comparing cars? p.141 - "maybe she's just gone fatal" p.146 - Lara is safe at home... OR IS SHE? Singing "Chain of Fools" p.147 - and "Heard it through the grape vine" Not teeny songs these days p.151 - Charity Webster, 1888- p.154 - LARA! I knew it! pp.156-158 - Char kills the demon thing by hugging it! While possessed by her ancestor's ghost? OK, I'm done. This was a surprisingly good horror story. (hide spoiler)]

    WAY too many characters for a book with no plot. I don't ask for much from these schlocky old Point Horror titles, but this one was a bit of a travesty. There are a few good moments near the end and I enjoyed the Freddy Krueger homage; mostly, though, this book is a poorly written mess. And not even a fun one!

The writing style is concise without the typical teen romance filler that I was concerned was going to arise from the relationship between Charity (the main protagonist) and Jones (the mysterious new boy in town). I also enjoyed the cutting of what I have noticed as a cliché 'first day back at school' following the horror 'event'. Although this scene establishes the relationship between the friends involved I found this story held my interest without all the extra details. It was nice to read a horror story that was only interested in the horror. A criticism of the story I found was the slightly confused ending. Although the scene in the library and Charity's reading of the diary elude towards a solution to 'who dunit' I feel a little more elaboration could have been used as there is nothing to indicate that Charity is linked to the killer until the last few pages. The narrative however gives the impression that this is something that the reader should have 'worked out' just before. I also got the impression that the reader was supposed to suspect Jones of being the killer, and in later stages of being a, or involved with vampires. However aside from the dropping in of the word 'vampire' in a few sentences of dialogue or thought there is no indication that this is what the story is supposed to be about.

A little cheesy in places but a good premise none the less. A great trip down memory lane!

    This is the first Point Horror story by Athkins that I have read and, unfortunately, I was not impressed. The story opens by introducing an incredibly large cast of characters. This short book splits the narrative focus between eleven protagonists, which was excessive for a novel that is less than 200 pages long. There also is not a lot of substance to the plot.

While I was surprised to find that it was a little more mature than the other Point Horrors that I have read (on page murder, reference to drug and alcohol use, vague allusions to sex), there really wasn't much plot. The sentences are short and clipped, often containing overly Gothic language, and a lot of dialogue seemed random and without purpose. The novel takes the form of a classic teen slasher story but really seems to forget itself halfway through. While at first seeming to be a murder mystery, it switches to being a supernatural tale close to the end. Unfortunately, this lead to a very confusing climax. The nature of the monster, and how the teens managed to wake it, was never adequately explained and the manner by which it was defeated is only vaguely touched upon after it occurs by accident. The characters were also largely forgettable. While a couple did fit typical horror tropes (including the rich bitchy girl and the bad boy), most of the large cast just blended into one. Although Char is probably the main protagonist, there was not much to her and her eleventh hour connection to the monster is never explained. Jones is also a bit of a disappointment. Although he seems to be connected, or at least have some knowledge of what is going on, the novel never really touches upon why. All in all, this book was just a massive disappointment and really felt as though it was an unfinished draft. Here's hoping that the next is a lot stronger.

    This book felt like it was an except from a larger novel. It had so many characters and plot points that just went nowhere. Had this been a 300-400 page book, all the characters given full potential, and the plot connecting and fulfilled, it could have been a great book. Unfortunately, the way it was written, left it making absolutely no sense with way too many characters for too short of a book.

I was willing to give this a chance though, especially as the plot sounded like a classic horror setting; a bunch of teenagers hold a party, get drunk and stumble onto and/or awaken something which starts killing them off. It's Friday the 13th and the plot outline of many other slasher films(though as I've said before while writing about this series, I kind of like the cliches provided they're done well or at least in an interesting way). In this case though, it's a Halloween party at a local cemetery. I though this would be a shoo-in for me to like, but I was wrong. For starters, there was not one character among the teens that I actually liked. Well, Char and Jane came close, but as this is another story told from multiple points-of-view, we don't actually get enough time with any of the characters to like them, just glean some idea of the stereotype they're supposed to fit in to. The majority are rich and highly spoilt too, which doesn't help. Then there's the writing style, which while serviceable for the most part occasionally leans towards strange asides or re-wording of a previous sentence in a way that's supposed to be chilling or creepy or perhaps even profound, but just comes off as lame. Finally we have the villain of the piece and the resolving of the murder spree. The creature is supernatural, we learn that much, but what it is is never fully explained and neither is the historical backstory that was roped in or the female apparition that ends up actually being the force that ends it all. In some cases it can increase the mystery and horror not to know the why of a supernatural menace - just read some M. R. James and see what I mean - but here they go part way to trying to explain and then back out. That's it, everything's over. It comes across as sloppy and rushed; even for a Point Horror where the writing style and shortness of the books means they tend to move at a fairly brisk pace. It's almost as if the author was planning it to be longer but they needed to slap an ending on it quickly to meet a deadline.

    “Are you hungry, kitty?” asked Char. “Meow” said the cat. “Are you thirsty, kitty?” asked Char. “Meow” said the cat. “Tough kitty, kitty” said Char, and closed the door.

Characters are often described only by how they are standing in relation to other characters, like nebulous celestial bodies in orbit.

Characters are often described only by how they are standing in relation to other characters, like nebulous celestial bodies in orbit. The characters definitely seem to exist in some manner within the story, but beyond that, there is little to define them. You don’t so much ‘get to know them’, as you are dimly aware of them as they spiral past one another wildly, screaming out in a panic and begging to be infused with some personality. Conversations lack any apparent context, and often entire speeches are given without any hint as to who is actually speaking. This is peculiar, but not quite as peculiar as the way in which you are left with the feeling that each conversation is only half complete, with people answering questions that were not asked. Reading a conversation in this book gives you the impression of hearing only half of a phone call, one which skips back and forth, with perhaps half of the remaining words having been eaten right off the page by a horde of malcontent dust mites. The plotline, when it did eventually begin to materialise, was contradictory and spiralling. I thought for one moment that it involved Jack the Ripper, but then it spiralled off to incorporate a hook being left embedded in a car. My working theory is that the characters exist within a fictional universe, a universe that is fully self-aware and adjusts to reflect the peculiarities of both their and the audience’s expectations of the genre. If this is the case, the book could be the greatest work of meta-fiction ever created. Then you stumble across a scene in which a large mansion catches fire while a crowd of people cheer and chant “Cook the rich”, and you instead decide that the author is just trolling you.

And that climax scene was just a rush of event with no room for explanation. This book does have some creepy moments (if you can bypass the shoddy writing) and there's a really inquistive backstory of the setting that I wish the book delves into. I can safely say this book is not worth the read.

    The WTF moments where a plenty. Some of the dialog between the teens. WTF?? Too many characters that had me flipping back pages to remember who was who. WTF?? Coming to the end it became rushed and left some things unexplained. WTF??

    Really good! I love D.E. Athkins. Although my favourite has to be The Bride. I was slightly confused at the ending though. Don't know if that is me being slow. Reading it too quickly or if it really is a confusing ending! :D Really good! I love D.E. Athkins. Although my favourite has to be The Bride. I was slightly confused at the ending though.
