    1. I read this with my Shelfari reading group and I appreciated this old school 80 s horror story.An athletic super star suddenly becomes paralyzed from the neck down and his life is forever changed It is changed once again when he is provided with a helper monkey, which he trains to help him out in daily life From there the story becomes a bit warped and a lot interesting I loved the character development and the pacing I am a fan of slow burning stories, so the pacing might not be fast enough fo [...]


    2. I watched this movie quite a bit growing up, so in a way this hampered my enjoyment of the book, while in other ways it enhanced it Stayed pretty faithful to the flick George Romero would later adapt for TV time The story stands as a uniquely twisted piece delving into the scientific link of memory here Allan is a paralyzed man who has become dependent on a small primate who has been injected with a powerful drug Together taking the pills they start to live through each other, ultimately creatin [...]


    3. Quite a strange book it s also been adapted into a film though the two differ greatly Monkey Shines shows readers the chaos that ensues when a wheelchair bound young man consumes psychotropic, mind enhancing drugs meant to be administered solely to his helper monkey The two share a telepathic, otherworldly connection until things go horribly wrong.This book was well written, disturbing and gripping, and definitely worth reading if you re a fan of horrors or thrillers.



    4. Imagine that you are an athletic star and a horrific accident takes all that away from you You are now faced with being a Quadraplegic Your life has beelined south and you no longer have the will to live What s worse You dont even have the ability to take your own life You also come to discover that your doctor botched your surgery Your girlfriend leaves you cause of pressure and what worse than that She runs off with your quack of a doctor.Then a friend comes along quite in the knick of time, w [...]


    5. Frightening What if the hateful thoughts you have weren t tempered by a sense of right and wrong This book explores the depths of the brain, and what it means to be human The scary part is that this storyline seems very plausible Has it already happened



    6. Great story A real page turner I had seen the movie long ago The book is probably better It s interesting at first, then becomes creepy, then downright terrifying It s a slow burn but is very well written Recommended


    7. As well as being a good horror story with lots of gory deaths, this is also quite a thought provoking novel Is it wrong to experiment on human beings if it is their informed choice to do so Is it fair to deny the experience of activity to a quadriplegic It might put you off monkeys, but this is a great read.


    8. Well done thriller about the relationship between a quadriplegic and his service monkey and how it goes bad, leading to disaster for anyone the monkey perceives as a threat The novel has a slow build up, but there s just enough science and theories about animal behavior, combined with thrills as the connection between the man and animal is revealed.


    9. It was a page turner and before I knew it, I was at the last three chapters I enjoyed it and it s twisted macabre plot, especially with the science involved And the ending definitely left me wanting .
