A Head Full of Ghosts free read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB N legendFifteen years later a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie's younger sister Merry As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight years old long buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface and a mind bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed raising vexing uestions about memory and reality science and religion and the very nature of evil. I was pretty surprised by how forgettable this one was It s one of the popular horror novels this year and the premise about a young girl named Merry witnessing her family dealing with the possible demonic possession of their daughter and their choice to not only perform an exorcism but to film it for a reality show is a set up for some chilling entertainment But I was uninterested through most of this book Much of it has to do with the terribly inconsistent pacing and lack of narrative urgency When I looked at the bottom of my Kindle and realized that I was coming up on the 50% mark with not much having transpired and with no excitement about continuing I knew I was in for trouble Some of the problems with the pacing comes from the book s structure and framing device where we glean the story by switching back and forth from an adult Merry dictating the story of what happened to her family to an author named Rachel doing research for a true crime novel which leads to the POV of an 8 year old Merry during the traumatizing events But there s also the POV of an annoying blogger dissecting the infamous reality show that documented the events The blogger sections specifically prove to be mostly unnecessary I mean yea I get it with these sections we get an idea of what the world knows about the events through the show and the fact that they differ from what might have actually happened butyawnthe same thing could ve been done and to an extent was being done in the MerryRachel seuences much efficiently and with less pages of pop culture references less shout outs to horror and crime icons and less words in all caps And as much as I understand choosing to use the little girl POV for the bulk of the novel it ultimately became a chore and all the time spent on setting up the 8 year old girl world took away from the real reason that I picked the book up in the first place For example what was up with Merry refusing to speak to anyone and using notes to talk Ultimately it didn t really amount to anything other than ruining the pacing in what should ve been a really engaging pivotal chapterThe dialogue also took away a bit and didn t feel genuine coming across as overly formal and stilted especially in the conversations between Merry and the writer Rachel The theory that most reviewers seem to have by the end view spoilerthat Merry has been the one that was possessed all along and continues to be hide spoiler
