If I wouldn't have known any better I would have guessed that it was written by a middle school student.
The plot line became twisted and didn't make much sense. Nothing connected anymore and it was all very disjunct.

It was like Sleator was trying to make the book intersting and throw in some surprises, but it was too much different information going on.
The general idea of the book was good and it was written better than I think the book would be a favorite of many, but the amateur writing style really killed all hope for the book.

No, not the usual zombies they portray in movies and comic books. I like the characters in the story and the struggles they had to go through together. Subtle romance in it which I find it quite delightful to read. Found myself taking less break and I finished it in 2 days.

This could have benefited from like extra pages. It was v fast paced and focused only on plot, and if we had gotten more character development and exposition, I think that could've given the book a lot more tension and bumped it up a star rating. Sep 15, Katie rated it it was amazing.
I really loved really this book. Although this was a bit easy to read, it had a great storyline and excitable adventures.

In some Caribbean countries she is what you call a witch doctor or a wanga which also means the practice of voodoo at his is something that is actually done in real life. A family member or a friend can also accomplish selling your soul to a Wanga but for a much heftier price. This priestess can also be hired to get rid of people for you. Society has fictionalized zombies as characters that eat people or brains and can be contagious.
These are not the types of zombies a wanga creates. They use real people. There is only one type of person a wanga cannot eliminate and those are people who have a very close and very REAL relationship with God or simply Godly favor. And a soul belonging to God cannot be assaulted under his protection. If anyone reads the story of Job in the Bible they will understand what this means.
I will give you the shortest version of that story. Job is a true believer and worshiper of God. God tells Satan than he has permission to attack all that Job owns and cherishes even his children. However he states One condition: he cannot take his life. I say all this to let people know know that even fiction is sometimes based on reality. Many of you will continue to be skeptical, however this is coming from someone who knows these things are real. Thats why I gave this book 5 stars. Dec 06, Ashmita Singh rated it really liked it.

Kan found a lot of people but no one wanted to help him because he was too young for and some of then even agreed to this but then were charging a lot of money which couldn't afford. He was then reading a newspaper and found this ad about a woman Named Cherry buttercup he actually went there and told what he wanted from then she asked there must be a reason that you are here, Kan mentioned his friend Roger who died. Cherry decided to help him she only charged fifty dollars from him Kan was finding this weird but then he thought about his fiend so he bought confidence from that and lied on the bad and let Cherry do everything.
She went inside her room and bought some kind of ashes and rubbed on his chest, her long pink nails felt on Man's body, he was scared but he didn't wanted to die.

He returned home from this ritual and his mom made some soup hat she took out from the oven she actually warned Kan to be away from this hot soup but Kan wanted to test himself if he can get burned or not.

Jun 28, Kaylin rated it it was ok Shelves: 2kreading-challenge. Although this book was short - only pages - I still didn't want to put it down. I knew I wouldn't finish it in one sitting, I had stared it at 11 pm so I had to finish it this morning. This book was suspenseful and different from what I usually pick up. About halfway through Ken's story - the main character - I had predicted a similar ending to his story. As a warning, this book does end on a kind-of cliffhanger. It seems like the story could have continued, but alas, that was not a decision Although this book was short - only pages - I still didn't want to put it down.
It seems like the story could have continued, but alas, that was not a decision the author made. The story seemed farfetched from the beginning. Sure, it's crazy but I still read it for a bit of a thrill. I only felt an inch of the thrill I was looking for when Ken and Sabine dove under the ice and into the cave that contained the dozens of souls this crazy lady tricked out of innocent people. Also, using Roger as a guard their first dive? It was expected, but that doesn't mean I wasn't a little surprised - especially the way Sleator described his zombified body it was a bit graphic.
The writing style was obviously reaching for an audience that was under 15 years old, as well as diction and syntax. This 16 year old, never-had-to-go-without-anything-ever child was definitely spoiled out of his mind and throughout the story, especially after meeting Sabine, he learned to be thankful for everything he had. The story itself didn't seem too developed. It seemed like something a new Wattpad author would write for their first story - and a few months later would become "bored" of and never finish.
Again, I think this book deserved a better ending - an extension. I do have to keep in mind, this book was only pages and it's difficult to fit a developed story in that little amount of pages. In my opinion, this book would be perfect for a preteen looking for a quick read about an adventure. It wouldn't be the best for a teen or adult, just because of the writing style. Now, saying this, this book was a good book but it wasn't my favorite - hence the 2 stars I give it right now. I may pick this book up again, and my rating may change. As of now, it's a 2 star book for me.

The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep and Never Had To
Creative and interesting concept, very poor execution. Ken was set up to be a complex character with powerful and unorthodox motivations: He never wants to die because he's experienced the death of his best friend, and now death terrifies him. But he's immediately unlikable and grows more so as the story goes on. He tries to steal a guy's girlfriend just to prove he can, though he considers her only to be "hot," dumb, and boring; he is a complete idiot about his invulnerability, showing it off w Creative and interesting concept, very poor execution. He tries to steal a guy's girlfriend just to prove he can, though he considers her only to be "hot," dumb, and boring; he is a complete idiot about his invulnerability, showing it off without ever having a decent plan for how to explain it to others; he notices Sabine's "hot body" but initially doesn't even want her to sit next to him because her face is "so homely," though he does later come to see her as beautiful once he gets to know her one of the few things about him I found relatable.
But I could have put up with his superficiality if he'd held onto his initial motivation or showed a believable character arc. He doesn't. Should he have wanted to do that when he found out his soul was killing people? Should he have done so without great angst over the idea of being subject to death again? Emphatically no.
The concept that brought me to the book in the first place was dropped without explanation before the halfway point and never explored again. The rest of the book is just zombie-soul hunting and romance, though at this point I was so done with Ken I honestly didn't care. And those little hints that Sabine might know more than she's telling? Oh, yeah, she's a zombie, too. Don't expect any explanation for why, or how, or who made her one, or why she's such a hypocrite that she would make Ken get his soul back without doing the same to hers.
Why not? Superficial Ken loves her anyway, so he doesn't care. Neither does the author, though this book is so short that there was definitely room to develop that plotline. Neither should you, in spite of all the nonsense you've put up with to get to this point in the story. Just "I guess I'm in love with a zombie" and the end. Good riddance. Jan 17, Enzo Caronna rated it it was amazing. This book which is categorized as a horror tells a very gloomy story about the main character.
His name is Ken. Early in the book the main character faces the death of a friend named Roger. Ken is very hurt by the recent event and cannot find a way to cope or deal with this horrible tragedy. The young boy decides to sell his soul to Cheri Butter. He sold his soul to the priestess for a fine. Throughout the beginning the book Ken believes everything is good like it was before but he immune to all pain physically and emotionally.
Very bad things began to happen to Ken from selling his soul. I killed somebody-i cut his throat. Ken has later turned into a zombie-like creature but it does appear to others that he is. Farther in the book Ken meets a woman name Sabine who committed the same act of selling her soul to the priestess.
Far from filling Adam up, food inflames his esophagus like a toxic invader, triggering vomiting, diarrhea, rashes and infections. So every evening around 7 p. For the next 12 hours, tethered to an IV pole as he sleeps, Adam absorbs an oatmeal-colored, amino acid-based formula that provides the nutrition he needs. Over the last two years, month-long food trials have turned up six fruits apples, bananas, oranges, pears, grapefruits, watermelon and two vegetables carrots, green beans that no longer ravage his esophagus.
Adam seemed a perfectly healthy infant until his sixth month, when Annette had to stop breast-feeding for medical reasons. Within 24 hours of starting on formula, Adam began to vomit, had trouble breathing and suffered his first skin eruption. The tube, part of which had to be taped to his face, was clumsy and easily dislodged, and Annette often had to wrestle it back into place. But the worst was yet to come. After being introduced to mashed bananas, rice cereal and other baby foods, Adam began to lose weight, plagued by up to 12 bouts of diarrhea a day.
