Download Epub Format â Asylum (The Asylum Trilogy, #1) PDF by ☆ Amy Cross This would have got 5 stars if it wasn t for the ending I have so many questions Hopefully the second book will be just as good This was such a good read With the right amount of creepiness I LOVED what was happening I also likes how so many characters got their own chapter It was done really well and was not confusing or hard to keep track Definitely will be reading by author.
Very Very disturbing and I loved it
Asylum has always struck me as a funny word If we are in a cruel, horrible country, we may be granted asylum in a less horrible country However, an asylum always brings to mind Nurse Ratched, too bright fluorescent lights, and over medicated patients shuffling around, mumbling to themselves Lakehurst Psychiatric Hospital is definitely among the latter It is ruled by the authoritarian Nurse Kirsten Winter, who was hired there right out of college No patient has ever walked out of Lakehurst cured They are heavily medicated, and if they misbehave, they are taken to the basement for special treatment, involving some sort of experimental, horrifying, electronic brain interface device One day, Lakehurst receives its most famous resident Her name is Anni Just whoah strange, macabre, weird and this is just number one.
Wow This was one wild ride Every time I got a lock on the story, the real story was pushed further out Like layers to an onion, I kept finding beneath the previous stories.
Without giving away any of the twists and their are many twist in here I will caution readers that this book is the compilation of eight mini stories which told together make up a larger storyline.
Readers need to pay attention to when the next book starts if they are not to fall behind Also, if you want to figure this thriller out, you need to keep a mental notebook on the details that you learned in the previous books chapters When I got to the final pages, and seen how the stories dovetail together my mind was racing to pick up the pieces before the last line So much so that after I finished, I sat in my living room staring out the window as my mind completed the piecing together of the story While this is a The ASYLUM series by Amy Cross reminds me of writing workshops This is not a good thing As a paying reader, and not a workshop compatriot, I do not expect to be bludgeoned by incorrect punctuation, missing words and repetitive scenes I resisted my workshopping urges, though, until the last third of the book Frustration sent me to start marking the text, not only because the mistakes were ruining what could have been an interesting story, but because I wanted to see if maybe I was inflating the number of mistakes that a casual read caught I was not At one anguished point, I noted, Bad editing is killing this book The worst thing about ASYLUM, though, is not the lack of editing The worst thing is the wasted potential Cross has fascinating and unique ideas, and created characters that had sparkling moments of pure interest There are masterfully handled scenes, including one where a
I m a patient reader, so I seldom use the term page turner , but as I got closer to the end, I did have a tough time putting down.
I absolutely loved this series It took a couple chapters to really get into the story, but once I did, I was hooked It took two days for me to read the first book, but one day for the other seven A definite page turner I finished this novel almost a month ago and still think about it all the time It reminded me of the TV show American Horror Story Asylum Although, I read this before the season started I haven t started Ms Cross s other works I purchased them just after finishing this one , but I already feel like I found a new favorite author I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
