Brace yourselves, readers. You're entering a blog with belligerent rants/reviews, chaotic writings, incompetent; pointless fangirling... and, oh yeah, GIFS. Fuckloads of them... did I also mention some swearing? I'm an eighteen-year-old girl majoring in Theatre Arts. I may not be an excellent writer, but gosh, I love doing it.
You've just been invited to a three-day house party to White Rock House on Henry Island by the most popular girl in school. What do you do?
(a) Decline it. I'd rather spend my weekend doing homework, reading, and/or sleeping. Besides, it sounds kind of scary - going to a party. On an island. For three days....
(b) Accept it. I need to get away from home and have fun with life. We have only one life to live and I'm definitely not going to waste it by staying at home reading a book. Besides, a three-day house party on an island! Fun, fun, fun!
Thank you for choosing. Your answer will be evaluated at the end. Enjoy the review!
Ten was a refreshing read! I read this in one-sitting. Literally. I could not put this book down. McNeil is a very skilled writer and I wish Ten was a bit longer than 294 pages (gives the evil eye at McNeil). This is one of those books you have to read at night by your window when it's raining. Trust me, it will make Ten ten-times better ( ten -times better. HA!).
Ten people have been invited to a house party on Henry Island for three-days and they do not want to miss their chance on having fun, especially if the invitation has been distributed by Jessica Lawrence, the most popular girl in school; it's a once-in-a-life-time chance. Why not accept it? Well, Meg, Minnie, T.J., Kumiko, Lori, Vivian, Nathan, Kenny, Ben, and Gunner are about to find out after they watched a DVD with a sinister message: vengeance is mine.
And their doom comes swiftly.
Now people are dying, and the teens are left with no phones, no internet, no electricity, nothing. Things aren't turning out as planned. They want to leave but the ferry won't arrive till Monday and the party has only begun.
I was shaking from page 50 till the end. I jumped from the bed after discovering it was only my cat making that weird noise and ran to my sister's room to finish this book. I love it when an author could arouse my emotions: make feel afraid, angry, happy, sad, etc. It proves they're an amazing writer. Ten is a story full of mystery and twists and turns. You'd think you know what's going to happen only to discover how wrong you were. What a way to end my weekend, thank you so much McNeil!
Before I end this review, when you get to the part where they discover that DVD and the countdown finished, play this:
Trust me, it'll make the discovery scarier. (I'd recommend you don't click that link until you actually get to that page.)
Now to evaluate your answers:
If you chose (a), congratulations! You don't have to worry about trying to survive, you continue reading and/or sleeping.
If you chose (b)... *evil laughs* I hope you could survive until that ferry comes....
