Stars As I read on Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts plummeted from five to four then three two one I ve given The Latte Factor it two because I think Yes Master The Bad Genie Series Book 2 it s not entirely the book s faultIt s partly mine because I didn t catch the cutesy cover and I believed this was horror and I don t like my horror cute or soft and cuddly as Tuesday s cat Other reasons laterTuesday Mooney does not talk to ghosts Maybe one maybe none but ghosts plural noAnd this book other reasons alert The Legacies is way too many things at once like a recipe with way too many Tikvah Means Hope ingredients some good but A Season with the Witch The Magic and Mayhem of Halloween in Salem Massachusetts inharmonious and so The Forever War it s ruinedBut I see almost all reviews are five stars and I know Kate Racculia has a loyal audience that loves her and and her books so there s that I get Miss Julia Takes Over Miss Julia #2 it I m an outlier Maybe when Another Dawn it s published I ll get some companyHere s the thingIt promised ghosts and Poe and Boston and Salem and a scavenger hunt these are a few of my favorite things which for the winners would bring money and macabre swag Macabre swag Cracking the Show is coolThe other huge clue I missed that this book wasn t for me The First Mountain Man is that the man behind the hunt and money and macabre swag which Home Wrecker includes seriously valuable rare Poe stuff and a large collection of random weird stuff The Source is named VINCENT PRYCEHow did I not realize how campy this book would be Vincent Pryce loved Poe One of his homes The Christmas Candle is The Castellated Abbey And I was still at five starsBut homage went splat and so did the book Back to the too many 奔馬 ingredients among them the late Vincent Pryce his campy death and the citywide scavenger hunt he set up to begin The Wolves of Willoughby Chase in Boston after that death so anyone could play for his money and goodies the widow the sad neighbor who deserves a better book the murder the pathetic best friend the stick figures doing the scavenger hunt the spooky mansion that s as scary as a kitten the wealthy family with The Complete Handbook Of Novel Writing its Cruel Intentions Rydeville High Elite #1 insufferable brothers at war with one another the fortunes the friendships the other murder the melodrama the ludicrous endingand the funeral costume party Pryce pre arranged on Boston Common where among others we get drag Cher complimenting drag Like a Prayer Madonna as The Last Juror if the book wasn t overstuffed enough so throw Free Fall in the cone boobsAnd oh yes the main character Tuesday Mooney a Goth Все страхи мира Том 1 ish woman from Salem with a decent backstory who alternates between smart and stupid and who never comes to life And her friends and family and her bestie who disappeared when she was sixteen and whose body was never found and her current bestie who I grow weary Trust me this Computer Coding Made Easy isn t nearly allSome The Third Man is played for laughs and some Snowflakes and Wishes is deadly serious and some 2010 Odyssey Two is I don t know what I love a scavenger hunt A scavenger hunt Vampires in the Lemon Grove implies clues but we only get a handful as the book bounces around from thing to thing to thing The first clue and Tales of Pirx the Pilot it comes early so this Training His Human Zandian Masters #3 isn t a spoiler How to Build a House is a chalk outline of a raven on the far side of subway tracks There s no bust of Pallas but A Bear Named Trouble it s drawn Brethren in such a way to suggest Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince it s sitting on one Or perhaps here I should add an h to sitting The raven s beak The Full Cupboard of Life is pointing toward the tunnel between stops and our heroine and whoever that other guy Royal Escape is walk the tunnel and find a false wall which when broken reveals ta da a dummy bricked up Here Lies Our Sovereign Lord in there dressed Flash Flood Code Red #1 in a jester s costume For the love of God Montresor I got excited Elated even My heart was beating loudly though muffled as Complete Novels The Heart Is a Lonely HunterReflections in a Golden EyeThe Ballad of the Sad CafeThe Member of the WeddingClock Without Hands if coming from underneath the floor See how I overdid that That s how the book The Mother Tongue English and How It Got That Way is From there Fir it s mostly downhill Once we wave bye to Fortunato s effigy we wave bye to fear and also consistency and coherence I wanted and expected horror and homage and some action since this Demons of Chitrakut Ramayana #3 is after all about a scavenger hunt so how did I end up reading sentences which Culture and Psyche Psychoanalysis and India includeAll relationships are new andDon t cheat your friendships Don t ask them to mean less to you than they doIt s all a kind of love and love The Soldier’s Curse Monsarrat #1 isn t any one kind of thingAnd so you see neither A Tale of Two Kitties A Magical Cats Mystery #9 is this book To shake City it off tonight at full dark I ll reread Poe beginning with The Cask of Amontillado because I had to sleep on this review and I have so much to say and this Fire and Blood is so long would you please say Never so I know Slam Book Fever Sweet Valley High #48 if you re still there I haven t said The Fire Starters it all but I m stopping because I know you get The Fire Starters it I did not like the book

Instagram Twitter Facebook Pinterest When I saw this cover and title I thought for sure that it must be a middle grade novel it has a very juvenile look about it You can imagine my surprise when I learned that it was actually an adult novel especially with comparisons to THE WESTING GAME a very old middle grade novel Whoever was doing the packaging for this book really didn t think that one throughTUESDAY MOONEY TALKS TO GHOSTS does try to be THE WESTING GAME for adults It s about an eccentric man named Vincent Pryce with a Y who collects Edgar Allen Poe ephemera and memorabilia He dies very publicly and in his will he states that he s having a massive treasure hunt and the winners get to have all his stuff Naturally people are interested and one of these is the main character Tuesday who is basically an adult version of Wednesday Addams if Wednesday Addams were a manic pixie dream girl who spent all her time listening to the Smiths and being eccentric just like everyone else in this novel In fact this book should be called Tuesday The Eccentric Eccentrically Talks to Eccentric Ghosts An Eccentric NovelInitially I liked this book a lot as it has some very sly humor and was cute without being too annoying As the pages went on it got less sly and cute And then as pages got on it became less cute and twee I think the problem was the book wanted to be too many things it wanted to be an homage to THE WESTING GAME and maybe that aspiration gave it a very young adult vibe that felt out of place in an adult novel it wanted to be a thriller but there wasn t a whole lot of suspense going on because it also wanted to be an Eccentric Novel only the author couldn t seem to balance realistic eccentricity with cardboard cutouts of eccentricity and it wanted to I think do what READY PLAYER ONE did with 80s pop culture with regard to Edgar Allen Poe only I don t really think Poe has enough of a foothold in modern day pop culture where these references will really resonate with the experiences of readers the way READY PLAYER ONE didThe supernatural element was also very strange and felt very out of place in this novelOther readers may enjoy this book but I don t think it was for me I m sorry it wasn t as I did think I might enjoy it in the very beginning but it really lost steam towards the end Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 2 stars
