    1. Damn There was all kinds of crazy going on in this one Drew and his friends have uncovered a mystery contained in some old polaroid s The pictures not only give Drew a peek into the personal lives of his friends, but also contain secrets from the past that are bleeding into the present Or maybe it could just be the drugs and booze.I was surprised how much I liked this one It was a fast and enjoyable read with a cast of largely unlikable characters, especially the main protagonist Drew who was a [...]


    2. Every so often things just work out like this I was in a mood for something scary and this book showed up in my email as a kindle freebie for the day Never heard of the author, didn t think I d be all that into a story featuring a bunch of college students partying themselves out of their minds, but lo and beholdis was kinda awesome Classy cover, well edited with the minor exception of the fact that despite what most Americans erroneously believe Columbia is only the acceptable spelling for the [...]


    3. What a pleasant suprise I picked this up with absolutely zero expectations, and was treated to a nice little thriller horror story The picture this story paints of the millenium generation teens is very bleak, and perhaps too much so, but nevertheless the action of the characters are believeable and the inner struggles of the narrator are described in a way the reader can relate to even though the narrator is a giant douchebag.I will look after Adam Vine s future releases


    4. I read this one based on a recommendation from a GR friend thanks Bandit and would not likely have picked it up otherwise I was not disappointed It was surprisingly well written, telling the story of a bunch of college kids living and partying in a off campus house that has a secret spooky history which gets slowly revealed through the discovery of some old photographs in the basement The characters were developed than you would normally expect from a book like this and the story moves at a rap [...]


    5. Lurk is a book that frightens you as you read, not only because of the author s expertise with the English language, but because you see yourself in every character In Drew, the socially awkward stalker who cannot separate his own failure to relate to people his own age with his self hatred and depression With Bea, the beautiful and confident woman who cannot see outside her own small world With Jay, who just wants to be a good friend and have a good time.Adam Vine s book gives you an insight in [...]


    6. I got 45% through this and I really don t think I can read any First of all, I m not scared at all and nothing much has happened And second, I don t like the main character He s unlikable and kind of a creep After the abuse against the dog, I can t do it any I m sorry but if you poke a dog s paws with darts over and over, I m never going to like you And I find it very hard to read a book when I don t like the main character this much No thanks, I m out.


    7. This was an awesome horror story So many times I have picked up a horror book and been disappointed with the lack of scares or weak plot or whatever When I started reading this, I found I couldn t stop In fact, I felt the excitement building as I went along, knowing that I d found a well written horror book that is truly memorable Can t really praise this one enough I m not going to ramble on and retell the whole story, because that s half the fun Go read it It s a wild ride.



    8. It s been a while since I delved into the horror world, so this debut from Adam Vine seemed like the perfect place to start Film student Drew Brady lives with his friends in a college house, where all the usual shenanigans associated with student life take place His best friend unrequited love, Bea lives close by and spends a lot of time there too When Drew finds some polaroids of former tenants in the house s suitably creepy basement, he soon finds that the photos reveal much , and that a dark [...]


    9. I got about 12% of the way through this one and skimmed a bit further, but found the main character and all other named characters to be way too frat bro and cliche to continue MC has a vicious case of nice guy syndrome, the main love interest is typical Smoking Hot Girl Who Is Also Very Very Smart Because These Are Complex Characters Y All, and everyone else is just written to be typical college students Perhaps this changes later in the book but I didn t find the experience pleasant enough to [...]


    10. I have received an audio version of this book for free, in exchange for a review This has in no way altered my opinion Rating here reffers to the story, than to the audiobook I must confess since the beginning that I am not a such a fan of horror books Having this one in the audio format was a very good thing, as I enjoyed the story very much As the description says, a group of college students notice someone has been spending nights in their basement and also a bunch of Polaroids showing the o [...]


    11. I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free audio copy All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.Drew Brady lives in a typical college party house with other students Drew is overweight and has low self esteem because of his weight and his inability to attract girls like his friends do He also has a history of depression probably for the same reasons Of course, no one realizes this because he always presents himself as Mr Nice Guy In reality, he s not even close to [...]


    12. I m not sure it s the right word to say that I enjoyed this book, because it was intense and brutal and a total mind warp Maybe it would be better to say I appreciated this book, because it really was brilliant in a lot of ways There is a double twist at the end that I completely did not see coming I didn t see either twist coming, actually, and I had to read the last part a couple of times to make sure I was actually understanding it Being in first person narration with a truly unlikable main c [...]


    13. This was a really great read that read like a really long short story In true horror fashion we have a sympathetic main character who seems to be the only sane person, who eventually succumbs to the evil powers that underlie the whole story line, but Mr Vine handles it with aplomb I feel a personal vibe with Vine simply because he is involved with the video gaming world outside of writing Being a gamer myself, I can definitely feel the attraction His references to Mario Kart and Mass Effect 3 in [...]


    14. I ve never heard of Adam Vibe before never had the privilege of reading his stories and as a cheap book on kindle I can t really say I expected much I was wrong to underestimate him.The story focuses on Drew, a college student living at Sunny Hill Upon discovering some old polaroids, Drew soon becomes obsessed with them and the union , who push him towards vile and heinous crimes.Ultimately, it s a ghost story with a slasher feel to it It reads very much like a teen horror film but is intriguing [...]


    15. I couldn t put this one down This is super creepy I didn t find any of the characters particularly likeable, but that s probably the point I did feel a little bad for Drew at a few points in the story, but that didn t last very long The writing was really good I know I was making a face during some of the gruesome scenes throughout the story My only complaints were that I think it dragged a little bit around 3 4 of the story mainly, the flashbacks of the Union that Drew was seeing , and the sto [...]


    16. I don t often read horror novels but I read this one and found it quite entertaining It s set in Santa Cruz where a group of students rent a house on Sunny Hill However, the house has been built on a grave site and in a hole in the basement, Drew, one of the students finds a Polaroid camera and a box of photos taken of students from 93 Most of the students have come to a grizzly end and Drew finds out how as we read on through the book Drew notices the photos have the ability to change and wen h [...]

    18. Drew is a loser He s fat, awkward, and hopelessly infatuated with a girl who doesn t share his feelings He has good friends though, and throws great parties Sunny Hill, the house he shares with those friends, has been a party house for decades.When Drew finds an old camera in the basement beneath the house, it leads him into a downward spiral of jealousy and rage The pictures show some of the house s previous inhabitants, and sometimes they seem to change.Lurk is a story of corruption and degrad [...]


    19. Adam Vine has a way with words Specifically dialog I was quickly drawn in by the natural, native like flow of the characters Having been a student at the same school at the same time Lurk takes place, I felt like I was right there with these guys Drew, Bea, and the rest of their crew are just like the people I used to know and hang out with Adam Vine is a guy that I want to read of now that I ve seen what he can do Lots of cool local places and name dropping going on if you are familiar with Sa [...]


    20. This book was such a pleasant surprise The cover intrigued me so I got a copy and at first I was like, what kind of shallow, vapid frat bro party is this but I kept reading because the writing was superb which made me think twice about putting it down, t gere had to something good here While every character was for the most part unlikable, that became a key part of the story It seemed to drag on until it didn t and everything turned topsy turvy and suspenseful Then it slowly creeped into horror [...]


    21. Creepy BookThis one was hard to put down The characters were great you want them to overcome the threat You want them to find the right clues I really enjoyed this book It s been a long time since I read anything in this genre WOW what a book to bring me back Highly recommend


    22. This is a wonderfully strange book that slowly unfolds as you progress, there s a lot going on here and Adam Vine manages to bring it all together with some impressive writing.I really enjoyed this it s contemporary and inventive with a plot which keeps you guessing throughout and a good mix of characters I ll be keeping an eye out for of Adam s work in the future.


    23. WowWow this is a must read this will keep you reading to find out what happens next the only thing is it does seem to go on and on at the end kind of skipped over but it is really good


    24. Hated for it to end Very few times have I really wanted to keep reading but dreaded the book to end This guy killed it pun intended and I want to read things he has written.


    25. This is the first time of me reading of Adam Vine And he has me hooked But I did not care for the f bombs or the gd words This is just me I feel good horror story s can do without I also know that is what sells Keep up the good work.


    26. Is King writing under a pseudonym again This is the best book I ve read in a few years I have never rated a writer up there with Stephen King Don t get me wrong, no one is ever going to top the king of horror, but Adam Vine definitely needs to write novels of this genre.


    27. Different fascinating.You will find this story is like no other it s different in a huge way and in subtle ways than other haunted house tales Very creative and very creepy A great read.
