I loved the movie, but this is not the movie. The characters have the same names, and the story is similar but it is very different. I did not enjoy this book.
I got this book because of the reviews and the narrator. Scott Brick still did a good job, but the writing was a little difficult at times to get passed. The concepts are good and science fiction ideas were interesting, I just did not enjoy the slow pace of the story.
Good story, but the ending seemed forced so there could be a sequel.
This is a good book if you are not affined by strong language or so called shocking material. If you are like me and enjoy Chuck Palahniuk's work (Choke, Fight Club, Survivor, etc.) then this will seem a little tame. Some of the graphic acts & language felt added on after the fact to make the book appear more outrageous. Overall the story was entertaining and well read.
Typical Grisham, not bad but not great.
Normally the movies butcher the book, but this is one of the few books in which the movie was far, far, far better than the book. I had a very hard time finishing this story. I kept waiting for it to become interesting or to follow the movie, but it never did. Rent the movie and say our credits.
This was a great book. I loved Ender's Game and this was just as good.
I was a big Chuck Palahniuk fan; I have listened to his entire list of book and was looking forward to the next. After listening to Haunted I was so turned off on Palahniuk I did not buy his next two books. I took a chance on Rant. The book did state a little slow for me, but it ended up restoring my faith in Palahniuk’s talents. The store was as creative as Diary & Lullaby and as interesting as Choke. It is still not as good as Fight Club. The time travel part was a little far fetched but overall the store was well worth the time.
