It is not strictly necessary to have read The Body of Christopher Creed before you read Following Christopher Creed although you should because it is amazing Where information ro the Nagara Kretagama first book is needed Ms Plum Ucci has made clever use of Mavic s exhaustive knowledge of the contents of ChrisCreedcom toill in the necessary backgroun This book is a thrilling adventure Days of Courage following Mike Mavic a visually challenged college newspaper reporter as he goes into the search 4 years after the disappearance of Christopher Creed in Steepleton New Jersey I liked how they kept it in Mike s perspective throughout the book And how the author created an event to bring the original characters back into play I loved that the book would make you have to go back and read over it to make sure you were not just thinking they had said something and you read over it Andinally I love I really liked The Body of Christopher Creed when I Advanced Techniques For Film Scoring first read it and I really didn t careor this one I m not sure if it s a weaker book or I m just a different reader to be honest It might be the difference between being a high school reader and an adult reader but I was way less interested in the protagonist and had some real issues with the depiction of women The twist at the end though was satisfying and I didn t see it coming until right before it happened I thought this book was actually pretty boring throughout most of it There wasn t really anything exciting happening I didn t really care about all the boring crap that went on in Justin s life I did however enjoy reading about Darla and Danny s suicide in connection with Justin I also enjoyed getting to know Mike Mavic throughout the story I thought his life was interesting The rest of the story had me De stille kracht falling asleep though All I thought throughout most of the story was I don t care I just want to know what happened to Chris Creed This is why the ending really surprised me I suppose I should have made a connection Chris and Mike both had crazed mothers Mike wasn t even his real name and he ran away when he was 17 same time as Chris I was pleasantly surprised toind out that Mike was really Chris I liked the These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders, fact that Tory knew it too That s why he stared at ChrisMike in the bar Chris knew that Tory knew as well The ending was uite satisfying so it made the rest of the book worth reading Overall this is a decent read I remember reading The Body of Christopher Creed in high school and LOVING it because it was just so creepy It was a well done psychological thriller And it was myirst psychological thriller that is so automatically it has a soft spot in my heart When I Delayed Surrender 2 (Delayed Surrender, first heard of Following Christo I loved theirst book The Body of Christopher Creed naturally I was surprised as well as ecstatic when I French, Grades 6 - 12 found out Plum Ucci was writing aallow up novel I couldn t Wildflower ~ A Balconies Novella find the book so I got it on audible and put it on my ipod Loved it In the beginning I had a lot of uestions about why she would choose to write about a character not in the original book but by the end it all made sense If you liked theirst one I strongly suggest you read the second I never realized that The Body of Christopher Creed had a seuel Christopher Creed doesn t particularly stand out in my mind but I love Streams of Babel and seuel so I ll give this a sho.
