Asylum Author Madeleine Roux Book ´ 317 pages Download Ô Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenFor sixteen year old Dan Crawford New Hampshire College Prep is than a summer program—it's a lifeline An outcast at his high scho Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenFor sixteen year old Dan Crawford New Hampshire College Prep is than a summer program it's a lifeline An outcast at his high school Dan is excited to finally make some friends in his last summer before college Bu The characters in this book are supposed to be 16 This is supposed to be a suspenseful thriller a horror for young adults It is not It is middle grade in writing It is elementary in plot development and characterization It is lacking in everything that would make it anything remotely approaching a good readThe writing is not terrible just forgettable I usually use a fair number of uotes in my reviews; I have almost nothing at all scribbled down in my notebook for this one roughly 15 words total really This book the writing and the characterization is absolutely lacking in anything memorable; for better or worse Do yourself a favor and skip it Don't even glance at itOh I changed my mind I do have a uote for you It's not from the book but it's my personal opinion of that idiotic ending No spoilers by the way“This type of ending is a special instance of deus ex machina known as the folie adieu which is French for Are you fucking kidding me?” Howard MittelmarkThe book fails as a suspense because within a suspense novel characterization should be key There is no character development in this book The characters do not develop in complexity they act they do not think They do not grow They do not mature They are scared I am not scared for them; I half wished they'd get killed so that there would at least be a spark of excitement in this dull shadow of a horror novel Stephen King might have written something better in 3rd gradeThe characters are strange I would usually say clichéd but it's not even that It is as if the characters cannot decide for themselves which cliché they are supposed to fall into It is a sad sad thing when a book fails at writing characters that are so poorly written that they cannot even force themselves into a mold There is Dan our main character a seemingly extra bright 17 year old with hints of past psychological trouble The book is told from his point of view and he is an utterly unconvincing character I believe he is a poorly written male character It is not so much that he acts feminine or makes observations that are uncharacteristically male and he does make certain observations about her clothes and hair that do not ring true to a teenaged boy but there's also something lacking about the way he is written There is something about every single one of the three main characters really that doesn't make them feel real at allThe characters are Dan the socially awkward but bright teen Abby the beautiful artsy why are they always fucking artsy? girl with whom Dan falls into insta love Jordan the brilliant gay math student The three of them bond almost immediately but again we are told this not shown this I cannot buy this friendship the way it was written does not ring true Their bond feels forced I neither like nor believe in any of the three as characters and I do not believe in their friendship for a momentThey lack dynamic They lack emotion Their individual personalities are nonexistent They are words on paper Even through the eyes of our main character we get no sense of development of complexity If this was a character driven book it fails utterlyThe romance was forced and it had no room in the plot It does not play any role of importance whatsoever it felt merely inserted in the book for the sake of having romance in a book that needed none and actually ended up making a bad book even worse with its extraneousness Their romance their dates their strained courtship had no room in the book short of trying to insert some awkwardness in the already poorly crafted credibility of the dynamic that makes up our not so dynamic trio of Jordan Abby and DanFor students supposedly so devoted to the pursuit of advanced education the three seem in a terrible hurry to throw their summer of education away They break the rules despite knowing it would get them into trouble They make stupid decisions they overreact for no reason at all Their apparent reasons for acting outside of their character were forced and not well written as to create a sensible flow within the book Everything felt incredibly disjointedThe final nail in this book's coffin is the fact that this book fails in delivering a compelling plot This book fails as a horror as a thriller as a suspenseful book There is no fear to be found within its pages The photographs are laughable and does nothing to add to the atmosphere of the book They actually make it laughable; the picture of the so called lobotomy pictures a girl with a horizontal zigzagging line across her forehead It looks like someone scrawled a long line of Ws across her forehead; did anyone even bother to research this? There are photographs of other patients so poorly photographed that they are obviously posed They do not instill anything within the reader except laughterThe other photographs are that of letters notes sceneries Letters Yes I am shaking in my boots Letters Terrifying I'm actually frightened by the hideous carpets paisley? on which the notes sometimes are photographedI was an easily scared child I would say with absolute confidence that my five year old self would not be frightened at anything within this books' pagesThe plot revolves around telling not showing Suspense is never built The plot is paper thin the twists are completely dependent upon our suspension of disbelief For a horror there is absolutely no suspense and no fear It is reliant upon coincidences and deus ex machina There is no subtlety in the attempts at giving us hints It was so very obvious to me from the very beginning as to whom the villain would turn out to beThere is a hint that this will be part of a series I was barely intrigued enough to keep reading until the end of this book and I'm about as eager to read the next book as I am anticipating a visit to my dentist Skip this book
