  1. I remember reading this many moons ago and I still enjoy it This is no Harry and the Hendersons story Reed and Beck are out for camping Of course, they ended up in Sasquatch land Beck ends up taken by a Bigfoot and she lives with the Bigfoot, Bigfeet family Becks husband Reed is on a search for her with some peeps Do they find her And what s her life like with the Bigfoot gang Read it and see Oh and I forgot to mention the mean jerks in the book There are always those Some crazy scientist dude A [...]

  2. I picked this book up at the library without knowing anything about it other than the title and the plot as described on the jacket They should really mention that it is christian fiction somewhere on the jacket I got roughly half way through the book when it occurred to me that the Christianity was being poured on a little thick I looked into who the author was and it turns out he is a writer of christian fiction I wasted my time reading half of a book I never would have touched, because it did [...]

  3. I mercifully forgot I read this book until I looked at Elizabeth s book list, or maybe I was just ashamed to admit to my friends that I actually completed it If Peretti wants to cram his version of Christianity down our throats evolution does not exist, etc using non existent animals as a plot device, he should publish a disclaimer to that effect, in very large type, on the front cover What a waste of time.

  4. I usually enjoy Frank Peretti s books, but found this one a bit different took me awhile to get into it But, towards the middle, and especially the end of the book, it is very hard to put down The writing can be a bit gruesome at times, but is not too over the top Without wanting to spoil the plot, I appreciate the premise of the book Left to his own devices, man will always create a monster I tend to agree with that except I would add especially when man leaves God out of the equation As a side [...]

  5. This book Oh my goodness Take camping trips, scary noises, huge monsters , evil scientists, search parties, secret plots to murder people and wrap it all up in one is the book.I mean, I was NOT expecting that ending AT ALL.Before I go there, let me talk about the characters Personally, I got them mixed up a lot in the beginning I had no idea who was who, except the main two characters, which by the way, are AMAZING Reedsweet My heart is literally breaking for him the entire time Ok, and [...]

  6. Husband and Wife go on a hiking trip that she is less than thrilled about When they hike up to the cabin they are supposed to meet their friend at, they find the place ransacked Nervous that the place might have been burglarized, they camp out a ways from the cabin hoping their friend is just a little late In the night they hear strange sounds and run from some kind of screaming animal She gets abducted by these animals and soon finds out they are the closet thing to they mythical or so she thou [...]

  7. I like Peretti A lot Especially when he s dealing with spiritual warfare He quite literally wrote the book on how the supernatural Christian thriller is done with his Darkness books This one doesn t fall in the same vein Not every book can be a writer s magnum opus Sometimes he just writes an entertaining diversion Nothing wrong with that Peretti s frenetic pacing I use that word as a compliment is on display here, and the pages turn by themselves The only problem is that the hook isn t intense [...]

  8. What did I just read I picked this up in an op shop about a year ago and have only just got around to reading it, so until recently I was innocent of the fact it is a CHRISTIAN BIGFOOT NOVEL Nowhere on the front or back cover is Peretti s God bothering mentioned Only when I read the review quotes on the first page did it begin to dawn on me that he is the king of the faith based fiction genre and the world s hottest writer of spiritual thrillers I had to LOL that they included the NYT s review, [...]

  9. Wow, wow and double WOW s In retrospect this book was not that scary, but when reading it you will say otherwise What I thoroughly enjoyed was the build up this book was made to be read in either one sitting cause you can t put it down , or you spend several nights reading it The plot, the ideas, just the imagination and the research that had to go into making this book draw you into it at a much deeper level than I have in any other Peretti fictional piece I was amazed and I think that you ll l [...]

  10. Plot Recap I got very excited about reading this book when I read the letter to the reader that appears at the beginning and was written by the Publisher The line that really got me read, As Publisher, I ve gone to great lengths to keep this novel s key plot points under lock and key so that you the reader could savor every page The Publisher goes on to say that there are many turns and layers to this story and he didn t lie However, I would have preferred to have foreshadowing of some of them [...]

  11. Beck is not thrilled to be taking this survival weekend with her husband Reed She isn t a big fan of the outdoors, but Reed thinks a wild camping adventure is just the thing to cure her of her nervous stutter During their first night of camping, a horrifying wail pierced the night Then something emerges in the darkness and chases them through the forest The last thing Reed sees is a huge, hairy creature carrying his wife away into the night.The next morning, a rescue party sets out to track the [...]

  12. Up against the library wall, with no other viable audiobook choices, I selected this book The writing is melodramatic and silly, but what made me like it was the reading by the author, who comes across as the narrator from the movie A Christmas Story on speed and tequila When the poor stuttering heroine speaks, our reader makes it obvious that you are glad to not have been in the recording studio with him because the spit was certainly flying When the Sasquatch groans, cries, sings, or screams, [...]

  13. In some ways, knowing what kind of book it is, I can forgive him getting the science really, really, egregiously, catastrophically wrong He at least consulted an expert who had a vested interest in steering him badly But he also gets universities wrong, hilariously so, and there s no reason not to have cleared that up with a little research.

  14. Christian thriller about MONSTERS Another one of my favorites by F Peretti Reading this author is like watching a good movie It s so easy to visulize every scene And what a captivating page turner this book is Enough of mystery and suspense to keep me up half of a night

  15. Peretti writes so simply, it takes you by surprise.Of course, I read the book for it s mystery However, I m a huge animal lover and the author got into the emotions of the great beasts in this book in a way that touched me.

  16. 3.8 5 That s its average rating here on , which I think is right on the money Totally fair for this novel There were some brilliantly tense and thrilling moments, but also some flat ones Only some of the characters had somewhat of an arc, but this was definitely of a push the plot and solve the mysteries type of book, so I understand where the focus had to be A couple good twists thrown in, as well as a surprise bond formed The heroism wasn t forced in that it was balanced with a few unfortunat [...]

  17. Several times in this book I thought I was going to break down and cry Monster left me on a complete cliffhanger at the end of EVERY chapter This book really surprised me, I didn t know what to expect but it definitely wasn t this I loved this book so much I normally don t read gory books, but this one I definitely don t regret Everything in this book was very detailed, sometimes a little to detailed, but absolutely wonderful none the less I chose this book because my mom recommended it to me, s [...]

  18. The book I am reviewing is Monster by Frank Peretti The book has 451 pages and is published by WestBow Press I chose this book because it is a fiction novel that has a lot of fictional characters and a suspenseful synopsis on the cover.The main character of this book is Rebecca Shelton aka Beck, twenty eight Beck and her husband Reed where on a hiking trip to meet with some friends When she was taken by an unknown monster and now it is up to her husband, their friends, and a group a volunteer re [...]

  19. Setelah menyelesaikan bacaan House kolaborasi Frank Peretti Ted Deker yang rilis bersamaan waktunya, dengan hasil penuh kekecewaan akan sebuah ekspetasi tinggi dari maestro thriller ini, maka diriku tak berharap banyak dari kisah berikut ini Perlu diketahui bahwa novel ini merupakan karya pertama sang penulis setelah vakum hampir 6 tahun lamanya tercantum di dalam halaman pengantar oleh penerbit , maka kembali diriku berharap dengan cemas, apakah kisah ini mampu mengembalikan daya tarik karya ka [...]

  20. Peretti, one of the most famous Christian novelists, sure knows how to write a brilliantly paced, roller coaster ride of a book Having heard great things about this author along with reading an earlier work, The Present Darkness, I gave Monster a try The earlier novel, which was steeped in Christian theology and genre, is a contrary work to Monster that explores the popular myth of Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch Reed and Beck Shelton, a happily married couple where the extroverted husband, a s [...]

  21. I saw this browsing my library s new ebook offerings and thought it sounded good and scary After downloading the book, I learned it fell into the Christian fiction genre Not being too sure what that meant in practical terms, but nonetheless pretty sure I was not the target audience, I figured it ultimately didn t matter as long as the book delivered And it did prove a pretty decent, fast paced read, though not the thrill ride I d hoped given a title like Monster and the rousing reviews.To really [...]

  22. I first read Peretti s work This Present Darkness Piercing the Darkness when I was in school I think it was 1989 I really liked the way he told a story It really gave you a sense of watching events unfold in than one location concurrently I admired that ability in his storytelling, and picked up this book expecting no less.Well, that was about all that I was happy to find present in this book To say that this isn t a good example of Peretti s work is being generous.This book was billed as excit [...]

  23. This is a stand alone book and not really a horror, but I can t think of another category Christian Horror because it deals with Bigfoot or sasquatch an entire family of them Reed, who is handsome and loves his shy and prone to stuttering wife, Beck, decides they need to get out in the wilderness for fresh air While camping, they are attacked by a pack of sasquatch Beck, learns how to communicate with the creatures I enjoyed the toilet paper scene There is some horror here in that there is a sec [...]

  24. This wasn t Peretti s best but it is entertaining and for people who enjoy a good mystery, adventure it s a fun ride I love the way Peretti writes to give you a sense of simultaneous events.If you are a busy person this is a great book to pick up as well because each chapter has a logical stopping point so you can mark your place and come back readily Tho it is pretty exciting and you may not want to do that.He sure did a great job of creating the atmosphere in which this took place You actually [...]

  25. I enjoyed reading Monster by Frank E Peretti At times it was hard for me to put the book down The setting is in the mountains near where I live therefore, it has a of a personal touch for me The book is a mix of science fiction, mystery, survival, adventure, possibilities, real love, and so forth It s about a shy, quiet, timid and yet brave woman caught up in a life and death unbelievable situation and how she survives by overcoming her fears with her intelligence and quick learning skills At t [...]

  26. I like how this book ended I like when the stutter of Beck had gone and she seemed mature after all what happened And the mad scientist, I guess he deserved what happened to him And the Sasquatch, I guess we all have feelings We just show it in different ways but I guess I begun to love those creatures and imagining what if I was in the place of Beck Would I be brave enough to pass those tragedies Seems like I lived in another world But honestly I had a hard time finishing this book Maybe becau [...]

  27. A damn good book Sure, he s a tad preachy about his anti evolutionism and frankly his conclusions don t track with the story all that much but honestly they are an aside to a pretty decent story Actually my biggest complaint is that it s a bit formulaic, all of the major characters survive while a large number of the peripheral characters dies I find that a bit of writing cowardice.But having Sasquatches on the run from a killer genetically altered chimp that s pretty damn creative So over all i [...]

  28. Wonderful, keeps you up till all hours of the night, your heart racing, kind of book As a writer, I was trying to analyze why it was so good I m not a reader of suspense in general, so I wasn t even that interested in finding out about the threat the monster, in this case I was interested in the cast of characters, and that s where Peretti s talent lies of course, he weaves a wonderful story as well But he made me care about the characters and this is not even a character driven novel, but a pl [...]

  29. A police officer, Reed, enthusiastically organizes a survival weekend and his less than enthusiastic wife, Beck reluctantly agrees to go What happens in the woods was a great reminder of why I m not a huge fan of camping in the wild A scientific experiment gone horribly wrong is wandering loose and scaring the creatures who do live there It moved right along and was entertaining but I ve read better.

  30. 3.4 Although I ve read some very old horror classics lately, I don t usually read horror I decided to try this for the scary category of a reading challenge It was the fourth book I tried for that, and it was closer to being scary than anything else I read, including Bram Stoker s Dracula This was quite good and better than I expected I liked the suspense in it.
