Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13 year old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims - a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story - and survive this homecoming.


REVIEW:
I did not read the book.
Frankly, I'm glad, since the subject matter probably would've had me throwing the book across the room.
It took me a bit to get into while watching the episodes. It was probably the fourth episode before I really started to enjoy the story and where it was going. Then I couldn't get enough though, and now need more 'cause what a cliffhanger ending!!
Yup, very good stuff. Mind-bending and thrilling!! 


4/5

  2. I just watched the dvd last week and also had not read the book. It definitely took me till the 2nd disk to start to really enjoy this show. And how crazy that there was an ending after the credits. I would not have known if I had not read about it online.

  3. Am I confused? I thought this was a limited series, not Season 1.

    1. You may be right. The way they left off, it would be weird not to continue though.

    1. I read the book and then rented the series. I don't know how anyone could have enjoyed the series without first reading the book. The series alone would have confused me during the first three episodes.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
