    One thought on “Beyond: A Ghost Story”

    1. Beyond is the second young adult book by a Canadian male author I ve read in the last year first was The Repossession by Sam Hawksmoor , they were both published by Hodder, and they re both original and refreshing I m even picky and difficult with horror than I am with steampunk, which is why I m especially happy to report that the horror parts of this story met my extremely high standards But I m getting ahead of myself here Jane is afraid of her own shadow literally Every time she faces any k [...]

    2. 4.5 HEARTS Before I discovered romance books I was into Horror and Paranormal books, so reading this was a touch of nostalgia for me I believe in the afterlife I believe there s an in between world I also believe that souls get stuck in the in between world when they have unfinished business This book was about a soul that could not or did not feel worthy of going into the light because of horrific things that happened to him while he was alive I have an open mind and I believe in all of these t [...]

    3. So, back when I was a sweet little tween, I was easily freaked out by Fear Street books and the like especially the Cheerleader series, CREEPED ME OUT, I wouldn t go showering after games at the gym is noone was around any, the girl dying because of boiling shower and steam still haunts me And though I don t really read or watch scary stuff much these days, I figured this would get me back to those days in which I LOVED them.Unfortunately, it didn t quite work out that way for me You see, the wh [...]

    4. I am a rabid Stephen King fan It s just a fact of life in my house kinda like breathing, or my inability to change out the garbage bag in the kitchen If there is a new book I will buy it Do not try to stop me or I will bite of your pinky toe So when I got a catalog from Hachette in December with a book in it that said If Stephen King wrote YA I knew I had to read it.I will admit, my expectations weren t all that high It is Stephen King after all, and if you are going to throw around the king of [...]

    5. 3.5 coffee cupsBeyond offers up a perfectly creepy ghost story with a twist that should delight young readers McNamee delivered a tale filled with creepy goodness involving a ghost and a killer This was a fast paced, easy read and I was thoroughly entertained.The tale begins when we meet Jane She has had several near death accidents and the most recent has her walking around with a nail in her head Her parents think she is accident prone, others think she is suicidal but Jane knows the truth Jan [...]

    6. Rated 2.5 really.Excerpt from my review originally published at Offbeat YA Pros Interesting premise Lead you can empathise with Peculiar sidekick Family plays a big role.Cons Main characters lack depth Their friendship feels a bit unlikely Massive use of colloquial informal speech understood subject.WARNING Kid abuse is implied There s tension and psychological horror, and the ending is pretty intense Nothing terribly scary though.Will appeal to First time horror supernatural readers.Premisespit [...]

    7. Beyond A Ghost Story has in interesting premise and just enough creep factor to keep you on the edge of your seat.Sara she s called Jane in the blurb on the back of the book but Sara in the ARC is recovering from a near death experience She still has the nail from the nail gun in her head She was dead and brought back to life Unfortunately, this seems to be a trend in Sara s life She drank drain cleaner, grabbed a downed electric wire that was live, and almost got hit by a train before this most [...]

    8. This book was phenomenol This book was extremely easy to understand,but also had some difficult vocabulary too The book had many character changes and had a very important theme Lexi, Jane and Janes parents all changed Lexi changed beacuse she went from overprotective to calm Im not worried any evr since you surgery ive learned to calm down 209 This shows that Janes surgery and being done with all of her ghost and shadow creatures calmed Lexi down a lot JAne changed from being afraid to confiden [...]

    9. The story opens up with Jane attending doctors meetings to discuss the removal of a nail that is lodged in her skull Something that doesn t seem to surprise her as she has lived through several other near death situations throughout her young life Electrocution, poisoning and a near miss by a train.Although Jane s parents have known her whole life she is prone to accidents Jane knows that it is something else, something that is a part of her that is causing her accidents Her Shadow She has only [...]

    10. I read the book BEYOND I think this book is great because it s about a girl named Jane dying multiple times and trying to avoid her shadow that s seems to be trying to kill her Later in the book she meets this demon face to face while she died again and she seemed to have got away, or did she Ever since she meet her shadow she has been seeing things and feels as if she s being watched I liked this book because of its intense moments and crazy encounters, but I would have changed the characters b [...]

    11. I had never read Graham McNamee s work before and this was a good book to begin with Short, fast paced and spooky, it s the perfect late night read Jane is being haunted by a force that wants her dead She and her best friend, Lexi, try to find out the source I loved the Creep Sisters idea and thought Lexi was a great character Jane was good, too although descriptions of her constant fatigue were, well, exhausting even though that was the point Although there was a scene at the very end that didn [...]

    12. Wow I will run, not walk, to get the other books by Graham McNamee An intriguing concept a young girl who has a near death experience but survives to be haunted by A compelling story the concept is developed slowly and carefully, nuance and depth added piece by piece leading ultimately to an exciting and rewarding conclusion Realistic, complex characters with depth Jane and her best friend Lexi are interesting without verging on the annoyingly precocious adolescents of an adult s fantasy Brillia [...]

    13. I ve always been a fan of stories about ghosts and spirits and so this book was right up my alley Overall, it s a really good book It really is an interesting, creepy, eerie, spooky, freaky and also a bit scary story Filled with great characters and an interesting story and murder mystery, it will keep you interested There were some negatives, I found there were some holes in the story and certain aspects that were not quite explained, defined or detailed enough for me but I did still really lik [...]

    14. Jane has survived poisoning, electrocution, a near collision with a train, and most recently, a nail gun to the head She s not accident prone, or even suicidal, like people believe Her shadow is trying to kill her Creepy, atmospheric teen thriller that reminds me of my middle school days, curled up in a chair reading RL Stine s Fear street novels with all the lights on, though with slightly older appeal 8th grade and up, maybe, for those looking for a light scare.

    15. this book was about a girl Jane who s shadow is trying to kill her in near fatal accidents She finally gets the courage to go and find out why all this crazy stuff keeps happening to her.

    16. A good, straight forward ghost story with enough of a twist to be unique A great hi lo pick that reads fast but still feels old enough for teens to enjoy Like the setting as well, was almost it s own character.

    17. Dude.Calm down with the exclamation points It does not make into an exciting horror story.In fact, it makes it a really shitty horror story view spoiler I loathe horror stories with happy endings They re not horror stories any then hide spoiler

    18. This book was both creepy and heart warming I recommend this book to everyone that loves suspense.

    19. This book was the perfect combination of supernatural horror with the shadow ghost, and realistic psychological thriller horror with the murder mystery and trying to figure out who kidnapped Leo Gage almost ten years ago and murdered him It s the type of terrifying thing you hear about on the news, and it s morbid but fascinating The kind of thing that I would like to try to write about As usual, Graham did a good job building up the suspense and making it chilling and exciting the whole way thr [...]

    20. Beyond is not your typical ghost story Instead of a ghost haunting a thing or location, this time the ghost is haunting a girl And trying to end her life in the process It took me a little while to get into the story The beginning felt like a lot of explanation and not much of the creepiness a ghost story usually has However, once the ball got rolling and the book started to deal with the ghost, why Jane was being haunted, and what caused the boy haunting her to die, I was hooked The stories of [...]

    21. This was a weird book Slow the build the creep factor, then about 75 solidly creepy but fun pages There was almost a really well done allegory for abusive relationships that just gets dropped Then a turn for the extremely creepy Then it just got super weird Rec for students looking for Realistic Fiction with ghosts Grade 7 be aware some sex talk, strange religious angles and intense serial child rape murder hinting.

    22. I going to go ahead and review this book although I haven t finished reading it yet It is a very cliche book, with every chapter ending in a cliff hanger quote that becoming very redundant after the first few chapters The writing style is as if the author put no effort into the book whatsoever And the characters are not at all charming or quirky and just plain dull.

    23. Not going to lie, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading this It was one of the most suspenseful ghost stories I ve read and I loved it I couldn t keep it down Anyone looking for a wild ride would enjoy this, but the faint of heart beware

    24. This was an enjoyable fast read with a creepy premise MC s shadow s trying to kill her There s a few legitimately freaky moments though I wouldn t call it full on horror, and the rainy BC setting dovetails nicely with the plot Solid entertainment for ages 12.

    25. This was a great read I really felt for the characters in this one I would have given this five stars but there were some things in the book that felt lazy.

    26. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 because it was hard to find the plot in the center of the story Usually, horror stories are supposed to be exciting but I found this story kind of boring I think the author should have powerful and descriptive writing Also, the author should work on character development I felt like the climax was at the beginning of the story, but then I realized it was towards the middle That is a good sign for the author.

    27. I picked this one up at work, and I m not quite sure why If I m reading a ghost story, it s than likely to be gothic or Victorian Edwardian horror, la M.R James or Wilkie Collins The subtle stuff However, I felt a little sad for this one, as no one had checked it out yet, and it seemed like a quick read.Well, it was indeed a pretty fast read I finished it in about an hour McNamee has some page or two page chapters echos of James Patterson It s not bad in any way, just not my cup of tea Basicall [...]
